Thats a great story @Snaketibe Jeremy, my favourite figure as a kid too but I dont really have anything to add to my story :lol:

Your 30 back is lovely, mine is creased with a yellow bubble and as for vairants you win there! The one loose figure I have that I dont think you do is this error. Odd legs and no paint ap to the front. A real Friday afternoon job

Thanks Andy. That's a pretty unique Han Hoth you have there! As you say, perhaps a Friday afternoon job! :lol: I'm not really into collecting error figures myself, but that is a pretty interesting one. His left leg almost looks like a tan moulded one! I don't suppose it is, is it? Regardless, thanks for sharing it and the rest of your tremendous focus :-)

Just a regular leg unfortunately. I thought the same when I bought him, was only a couple of dollars from America a couple of years ago so no great premium for his odd nature.

Great figure. Ace collections Andy @spoons and Jeremy @Snaketibe.

I’m laid up with a gammy back at the moment so can’t photograph mine. I’ll add when I can but nothing as spectacular as either of you two sadly. I’d love to get my hands on a Molded legs, a purple jacket, and a chocolate legs.

What I can add is a little information.
Family I (2 line Coo with large copyright) was made in the Unitoy factory. This figure came with the v2 blaster from the TIG website. It is easily identified by its elongated thumb on the right hand.

I believe Unitoy stopped making Han Hoth from the 65c Emperor offer onwards. At this point the Unitoy moulds were sent to Kader and they released a no Coo version (which I believe) can be found in the US on Kenner 65c cards and onwards. They were also released for the European market. This figure is often found with a blue / black rather than black Kader v4/v5 blaster instead of the blue v2 blaster. You can see an example of this in Spoons’ China baggie with double weapons error.

The dark tan pants variant was also produced by Unitoy (though I haven’t yet determined which card Back they appear on being at the start of my research).

Family II (2 line Coo with small copyright) was made in the Smile factory. This figure came with the v1 blaster from the TIG website. They also made a no Coo version for the European market.

Family III (5 line Coo) was made in the Kader factory. This figure came with the v4 and v5 Blasters from the TIG website.

It is the Kader factory that is responsible for the moulded legs Han Hoth Figure.

Parts were also sent to POCH and painted to produce the chocolate legs Han Hoth variant. Later the moulds were sent to PBP and scarred to produce the PBP variants including the purple jacket variant.

Thats interesting @TheJabbaWookie - I've never really paid much heed to facotries. The onyl hting I'm ocnfused about is if you are saying Kader only released HH from 65C onwards?

The moulded legs is a 31 back release so the first or second Han Hoth on the market - there is also a non-moulded 31 back so not sure which factory made which. I'm sure you do :)

Dark tan pants is a Palitoy/Euro release (tri-logo maybe?) and also found on two packs from Euro stock.

I too can add to this one but not to the degree that others have done for this figure.
There are so lovely examples of this figure in collections and of course his great ability to holster his blaster.

No all three factories released from 31 back. But the Unitoy mould was sent to Kader to make the Made in China baggie figure and the no Coo version of the Unitoy Figure.

From my research this is not the only time this has happened. The Zuckuss Figure moulds were also sent to Kader and the figure can be found on 65c Kenner cards onwards as well as in made in China baggies.

And Jon Meade has shown that the same thing happened with Yoda.

Wow andy that is an amazing solo collection, so do you have a solo hoth focus ? :lol: just joking. Not to be rude but if you get the time then I would love to se the cards from the back in the same order as you shared them from the front, it could be cool to see which back variants that there is and what types of stickers that is on some of them on the back 8)
