Dengar! Back in 1980, this was a very exciting figure for me. Having been blissfully ignorant of the mail-away Boba Fett offer here in the UK (mainly due to me not reading comics at the time and hence never seeing the adverts), Dengar represented my first ever experience of sending away for an unreleased figure. Talk about exciting! I gleefully destroyed 3 cardbacks to remove the name plates and sent them away to Palitoy, along with my 30 pence for postage and packing, and then waited... and waited...

I was one of those children who received a postcard from Palitoy (as shown here http://i712.photobucket.com/albums/ww13 ... 5250731098 - not my photo) explaining that there would be a delay in the delivery of my figure, which only made the anticipation all the greater! And of course, because this was my first ever mail-away, in my 8-year old ignorance, I expected the figure to be sent on a cardback, just like all the other figures I had seen and bought. And so it was that when, several weeks later, a small white cardboard packet arrived in the post with my name and address on it, I genuinely didn't know what it was. I opened the packet with curiosity more than excitement, and then I saw what was inside! :D

Wonderful stuff! Yes, the figure is a little chunky. Yes, he can have problems holding his rifle. And yes, that rifle is completely wrong (Kenner having cheaped out and donated the equally incorrect Snowtrooper's rifle to our bandaged bounty hunter), but it was still a thing of wonder to the child version of me!

Fast-forward a decade or four and here's the selection I have today. A range of armour shades and skin tones are available across at least 2 similar, but different sculpts, with the darkest armour coming courtesy of our Spanish friends at PBP:

Thanks for sharing that huge army of dengar variants and that was a cool story about the dengar that you got with mail :D

I love the pbp dengar, I think he is the most perfect variant of all the dengar variants that I have seen.

Yes wrong blaster for dengar but it look a lot like the one he used. I would more say the snowtrooper rifle kenner sold it with was very wrong. As I remember it we more saw the normal stormie blaster used with the snowtrooper. But I have read elite snowtroopers used the rifle, maybe kenner sold the elite snowtrooper :lol:
Thanks, Lars.

That's interesting if there is or was intended to be another Snowtrooper that did come with a rifle more like the one Kenner gave us. I certainly don't remember seeing any evidence of it anywhere in the film, so perhaps it never made it passed the design stage, or maybe ended up on the cutting room floor? :?
I only remember the common imperial blaster and the big laser cannon for them in the movie

Image

Star Wars Wiki write about the rifle for elite stormies, but there is not much info https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Cold_a ... ormtrooper

Maybe kenner choose the rifle because we sometimes saw the rifle for common stormtroopers and desert stormtroopers in a new hope and they did not sell the kenner stormie with the rifle, so maybe they sold the hoth stormie with it so kids that had both figures or an army of both figures could choose to give the hoth stormie the stormie blaster and the stormie the hoth stormie blaster. I think when most kids play then they give some figures other weapons than the one they were sold with, I did that when I was a kid :lol: I remember sometimes I gave the klaatu staff for gamorrean guard because I saw they had one that looked like it in the movie :lol:

Here are my two Spanish PBP Dengars. I also have a 2 line Coo version (Smile) and a 3 line version hopefully for Christmas. I’m after an affordable 4 line Coo version but that one is hard to come by in the UK.

Lovely pair of PBP Dengars, Jay. Thanks for sharing :-)

Sorry, no I don't have the 4 line version. Do you know if it is visually different to the other Dengars? If it is, I will probably be interested in tracking one down myself. If not, probably not.

Until recently I couldn’t of told the difference between any of them apart from the dark armour, but I’ll leave it up to you to decide. Pics attached.

Thanks. It's difficult to be certain without having one in hand, or seeing a side-by-side comparison pic with some other variants, but on first glance it may be slightly different from those already posted in the thread. Regardless, best of luck in your search for one.

and last my 20 figures, one of my figures is missing the foot, but I hope I get a better one in the future so I can upgrade it :lol:

I did the pictures of the figures today with flash, flash works ok on dengar, but I still prefer sunlight, but in denmark it is dark today and raining again :lol:
