I think I have a few that I picked up in childhood lots I can check which rifle variant I found them with :wink: About your collection, nice mint variants, thanks for sharing them :D

Ree Yees was the last figure i had back in the day. A Christmas present in 1988. By then SW toys had long dropped off my mind and toys were being replaced by Spectrum games but receiving that figure so late in the day was a little spark that has probably lasted today.
On and off small time collector of mainly ROTJ 77 backs, vehicles and loosies since 2000.

Nice figures, Jay.

I couldn't tell you which rifles my ones came with originally, as I sadly kept none of my childhood figures. Mine mostly came from local collectibles shops where they matched up figures with weapons, but were unlikely to be the original pairings. I can however have a look later and let you know which weapon versions I do own though and take some photos, if anyone's interested?

Thanks Lars, Jeremy. I’m slowly collating my portfolio in the Star Wars Tracker app so have been paying a bit more attention to what accessories come with what. It’s always a lottery as unless you can confirm with multiple MOC examples it’s always going to be a guess.

Ok I have checked the ones I have that sellers have told me that it was their childhood toy that I bought and they have been the only owners, I also have 2 from my own childhood but I was stupid in my young days to mix them with the rest of my collection :roll:

But here are the confirmed ones

I have

HK with V1
Taiwan with V4
Taiwan with V4
Taiwan with V4
Taiwan with V4
HK with V2
No coo with V4
