Here’s my Max Rebo @Snaketibe
Hi Jay,

That's in truly lovely condition, but like the best of the non-Ledy versions, there is a slight difference in the shade of blue of your Max's torso compared to his limbs. Every Lili Ledy Max Rebo example I have seen has the exact same shade of deep blue on both their torso and limbs (albeit many of them also have some yellowing, usually to the torso), so I would say that yours is very unlikely to be Ledy, but remains an excellent example nonetheless.

Hope that helps.

Jeremy

Great. I didn’t actually want him to be Ledy.

Wanted him to be a very blue Kenner for my set otherwise I’d have to go in search of a mint Kenner version all over again :lol:

I’m currently not chasing after Ledy as I find them too expensive and too hard to track down, although I would like a Klaatu with big fluffy furry skirt

You rarely see these trilogo sets with the inserts? In fact the example that Emiel (@Capetown) has is the only one I think I’ve seen.

Does anybody know if they all originally came with inserts or some without?
Whilst not 100% certain, I am pretty sure the UK version didn't come with inserts. Even Capetown's magnificent MIB collection shows two different versions of the Rebo Band, one without inserts and instead a large bag that all the other bagged pieces came in, and the other version with an inner, but also what appears to be an 'El Retorno Del Jedi' leaflet / booklet, so I am guessing this may be the Spanish version of this set? Hopefully Emiel can confirm / clarify for us.
Aye, Jeremy, it's the Spanish GMJ-version. It has GMJ on the back where on the regular set it says PBP.

Are the silver flutes rarer than the black flutes?

Yes they are rarer much more than the black one.
