No MOC as I don’t collect Jedi cards as a rule, so I have a graded and a loose example.

Hi i'm Russ

Remember above the clouds the sun always shines

C-3PO (Return of the Jedi): I’m rather embarrassed, General Solo, but it appears that you are to be the main course at a banquet in my honor.

A nice pair of Boushh figures, and two different variants too... not that you'll say you care about that!... I know, I know... you don't collect variants! :lol:

Thanks for sharing :-)

I’ve never noticed, please educate the un educated! 8)
I bought them because they were almost mint.

They are nearly mint. They're lovely! :-)

As for the visual differences in your two, for starters the head sculpts are totally different, with your graded one having a thinner head and your loose one having a rounder head. But otherwise the greatest visual differences in Boushh variants can usually be found in the bandolier detailing, specifically between the two large buckles on the figure's front. Between those two buckles, the sculpts can vary wildly. In the case of your two, your graded one has less 'fussy', cleaner detailing at this point, whereas your loose one has more going on :-)

I'll post my 4 shortly and send you to sleep with subtle differences you won't care about ;-) :lol:

OK, here are my 4 loose Boushh figure variants. From left to right; a Taiwan tan-moulded torso, thin head; a Taiwan brown-moulded torso, round-head, red/brown hair; a Hong Kong, lighter brown torso, thin head (I think it looks more like Dr McCoy than Carrie Fisher, but I digress...); and an erased COO, darker brown torso, round head.

As stated in my post above, the bandolier detailing varies considerably across different variants. My two Taiwans have the same bandolier sculpt as each other, however both my other two have different detailing between the two large buckles on the front of the bandolier, making 3 different bandolier sculpts across these 4 variants.

OK wake up, here are the pics! :-D

Thanks for the information, it goes to show that I never look that closely at figures! :roll:
I don’t think other than the head size that I would have seen the difference with the buckle! :lol:

Jealous. Love that painted torso. Such a hard variant to pick up.
