UPDATE: Quick Reference COO photo guide added to page 4

Prompted by a renewed interest and spurred on by what Frank (Frunkstar) had said before about it being a good idea for some guides to appear on here, I've decided to put together a little COO reference guide for the Imperial Commander figure.

Hopefully should shape up to be something along the lines of the Luke Farmboy guide I put together. http://www.starwarsforum.co.uk/viewtopi ... 49#p251009

Appreciate any help, advice or feedback. Thanks already to aussiejames for his input :)

Wolffs guide is shown below to help give a quick reference to variants. Please check out the excellent "The Variant Villain" site for a comprehensive guide to any figure variants. Donation made to site for ongoing support.. :wink:

I always really liked the detailed sculpt on this figure and the fact that there is a good few COO variants along with Hair colour/styles, face moulds/colours etc...I reckoned it was a good choice for my second little guide.

First appearing on the Empire Strikes Back 41 back card, also found on ROTJ and Tri-Logo cards. Also available on Lili Ledy cardback.

The figure sports the Black uniform, first seen in 'A New Hope' as opposed to the grey one featured on the figures cardback. This picture shows the two movie outfits.

There are a number of COO/No COO available:
I will update these as I acquire different variants... :D

Hong Kong: A number of different Hong Kong variants exist. COO, face moulds, face color, Hair Colours etc...New updates Page 3

China: Distinctive as it has No COO and no LFL markings....Update: Figure guide added on Page 3

No COO: LFL 1980 appears but as title suggests, No COO present. A number of variant hair Colours. Red/Brown, Brown. Can appear very similar to Ledy sculpt, including bent thumb and leg markings. Skinny and Fat head sculpt available.

Lili Ledy: COO has been erased, Larger Font LFL 1980. Distinctive "Crooked/bent" left thumb points inwards. Paler face paint.

Now I'm not :lol:

I was fairly happy with the COO etc?

I reckon that you are right in that it is a Euro No COO figure!

Thanks for the heads up.

So IMO Ledy is 'pale' plastic face, dark brown long hair. All Ledy (apart from the 13 MIM) have a 'Kenner' counterpart which will share the same CoO, mould details (ie. curly thumb) etc. So it's important to focus on the other details like paint, plastic colour. It's easier to tell with them side by side. ( Ledy vs "Kenner' counterpart ) I actually think it's as hard to get a complete run of Ledy 'counterparts' as it is to get a Ledy run. (sans weapons)

The non-Ledy have a pink plastic face in at least two different hair colours. The red/brown on the right & brown in the middle. There is speculation these are Spanish produced which is very likely but I don't usually bother with PBP/POCH labels. I prefer 'euro' with red/brown hair or 'euro' with short brown hair etc. this covers 'palitoy' as well.

I'm happy enough it's a Euro Red/Brown hair variant so :D

I have a Brown hair No COO figure on the way so it will be good to compare

Appreciate your help and advice, Thanks

Left hand thumb variants:

The figure features two different sculpts on the left hand. One has a straight thumb the other curls inwards. Initially came with straight thumb mould. Curled thumb was a later design mould.
Both variants can be seen here quite clearly...
