Han Solo Hoth Fatigues Variants

• We'll be looking at the No Coo figures only, including Kenner & Euro/PBP

That said, Here's the guide.....

Coo guide...
The 'rough' and 'smooth' descriptions refer to the feel/look of the scars.
Image

Left to right, Kenner No Coo, PBP/Euro Pure pink face, PBP White face/Violet jacket, PBP/Euro Pale face
Image

The PBP/Euro 'Pale' face figures are so called because they clearly have a lighter pink hue applied over the top of a white base. They therefore differ from the 'Pure pink' face and the 'white' face as these two variants only have one tone of colour applied to their face.

As you can see there are a wide range of scars on the PBP/Euro 'Pale' face figures, which is very common and in line with other PBP/Euro figures like the No Coo Scar Snowtrooper and the No Coo Scar Landos for example.

Back row, PBP/Euro Pale face 4 different scars;
Front row L > R, PBP/Euro Pure pink face & PBP White face/Violet jacket
Image

These PBP/Euro figures generally came packaged with imperial blasters, whilst their No Coo kenner counterparts came with the standard rebel blaster.

Close up of face colours...
Clockwise from top, Kenner No Coo, PBP/Euro Pale face, PBP White face/Violet jacket, & PBP/Euro Pure pink face

If the photos and info provided assist just one person in some small form then the thread is performing the task that I want it to, spread the joy of variants throughout the collecting community. Some people love/appreciate the variants quirks and differences, Some people just see 8 of the exact same figure, All is fair.

Its a slow burner of the thread. I would prefer my updates to be more frequent, however it takes time and effort, and I often lack one or the other at any given point lol

Luke X-Wing COO Guide

COO Guide...
left to right,
PBP 'dot high', PBP 'dot low', No Coo 'raised bar', China 'raised bar' & Hong Kong

left to right,
PBP 'dot high' Pink face, PBP 'dot high' Flesh face, PBP 'dot low' Pink face, PBP 'dot low' Flesh face

Image

The three different face colours on the PBP Luke X-wings mirrors what we have seen in other PBP figures, Like the rebel soldier, AT-AT commander, Dengar, Luke Hoth which all have 3 different face colours applied in PBP factories!
left to right,
PBP 'Pale face', PBP 'Pink face' & PBP 'Flesh face'

Image

The helmet emblems on the PBP Luke's are very fragile. Finding them mint is both tricky, and expensive, But look how much more beautiful the figure looks with them!
clockwise from top,
PBP 'Pink face', PBP 'Flesh face' & PBP 'Pale face'

Image

The PBP Pale face Luke X-Wing really is a figure of beauty...

Excuses, Excuses, But I lost motivation to document my collection for a while there, But here's another one for you, You never know, This might now give me the incentive to trot off a few more this year. I've got the variants ready, Sadly, Lack of lightbox, Time and drive have been, and are the enemy! :D

Darth Vader No Coo Guide

No Coo Guide...
We're only looking at four of the Vader Coo families for this No Coo guide. Families 1, 3, 4 & 6 which produces eight No Coo variants...
Image

left to right,
Raised bar 1.2a, Raised bar 1.2b, Erased 3.2a & Erased 3.2b

Image


left to right,
Lili Ledy, PBP/Euro 'deep scar', PBP/Euro 'H remaining', & PBP/Euro 'blobbed out'

Image


The Lili ledy chest plate paint application is short, Neat and precise. However, When we look at the PBP figures, we can see over-spray across the board, Which is very consistent with PBP production. The blobbed out Coo of the same family does have a different paint application when compared to the other two figures next to it.
left to right,
Lili Ledy, PBP/Euro 'deep scar', PBP/Euro 'H remaining', & PBP/Euro 'blobbed out'

Image

When we compare the capes and sabers, We can see the PBP cape is rugose in nature and is quite rigid, whilst the Lili Ledy cape is smooth on both sides and feels more flexible and rubbery. Neither cape has a crosshatch side which makes a zipping sound, like the Kenner capes. The Lili Ledy saber is of very thick tip, as we also saw in the Ben Kenobi coo guide earlier. It only remotely compares in appearance to the Vader glasslite saber as it is nothing like any Kenner sabre. The PBP sabre has a rounded tip and is slightly darker in colour compared to its Kenner cousin.
