Hello again, ladies and gets.

Any thoughts on the below would be much appreciated.
Mucho thanks. R

1st up is Squid head (cape variant) COO HK?
2nd Master Yoda — is this little guy LL?
3rd Klaatu — No COO???

Firstly the Yoda looks to be a Unitoy Orange Snake Yoda with incorrect Kader belt, and incorrect dark brown cane (can’t tell what factory without close up posts from both sides) and incorrect snake (again need close up pics).

The Klaatu is the European no Coo version made by the Smile factory with painted green face (rather than Molded green) and grey limbs (rather than tan).

Can’t tell you much about the Squid Head without pics of the Coo and top of the head.

Think you’re spot on with Yoda — always good to get another opinion if in doubt;)

Here’s the shot of Squid Head’s head. Plus, the COO.

Thanks for your time. R

Looks like a Kenner MIHK Made in the Kader Factory. Lovely condition figure.

Interesting! And the cape? Clearly not common, well I’ve never seen one. Here he is next to his Trilogo brother.

I’m not a Squid Head collector but I’ve seen some folks collections with loads of different cape colour variations. In most cases they are just degradation but people love collecting them anyway.

Yes I’ve seen a multitude of different colour Squid capes too — degradation in most cases for sure :) But I haven’t come across one like this guy. In my view he’s too clean and the colour‘s too consistent to simply be a case of degradation. Just found this (see attached), seems very close to my Squid’s colour-way!
