One of my favourite figures from the entire Star Wars line. If not my favourite childhood figure full stop. Had hours of fun playing with this particular figure. Vivid memories of receiving him as a child. I've actually decided to start a focus and Army building collection with this character in the last day or so....

First appearing on the ROTJ 65 Back

Hong Kong COO figure:

Due to my decision to start Army building on this figure. I have a number of different variants of the figure. First up I will discuss the Hong Kong COO figure.

The only major difference I have noticed between any of the Hong Kong COO figures is the face paint application. There are two noticeable different applications. One Flesh face (Below Left) and a lighter Pale face (Below right). There is no difference between the COO markings.
Hereis a couple of pictures of the two variants side by side.

Similar to the Hong Kong COO figure, the only noticeable difference between the variants of the No COO figure is in the Face paint application. I have found two different applications, a flesh colour figure (Below left) and a slightly Orange paint application.. (Below right)
I have 3 of the Orange paint applications and all 3 have very worn paint. I don't know if this is a common trait with that variant?

There is also a distinctive difference between the painted face figure on the right below, and the moulded head figure on the left, when viewed from the rear.
Painted face figure has a Grey helmet trim as opposed to Beige on the moulded head figure

There are also a number of other differences between the China COO back pack and the other variant such as the strap on the top and the row of dots as opposed to a line.
