One of the few non-Han Solo mocs that I own. This was a prize in a SWFUK competition a few years back. Some generous prize givers!

The incredibly exciting AT-ST Driver, eh? ;-) OK then, here are mine. I can't claim there are Luke Bespin or Han Hoth levels of variants to be found on this one, but there are differences... if you look REALLY hard!

I have a no COO and a Taiwan example, and whilst there are minute sculpting differences, the main variance is in the shade of plastic used (assuming it's not down to discolouration, of course!), and in the fact that the Taiwan Driver has a more matte black paint used on his boots and gloves... Honestly, it comes to something when the guns they're holding have more obvious differences than the alleged variants themselves :lol:

Anyway, here they are... if you can stay awake! :wink:

I have always liked this figure, reminds me of a motorcycle rider...
Anyway, these two card types haven’t been posted yet.
A crystal clear bubble on the POTF isn’t that rare on this figure, I wonder why?

Superb stuff, Nick! I particularly like the POTF version, and the clear bubble makes it look even better!

The tri logo is another lovely card. Seeing these posted here I’m tempted by a mini run of ATST. Does anyone have a carded Palitoy?
