Who is best person to talk to in regards to PBP/Poch figures?

Post by StarWarsFan »

Hi,

Am starting collecting PBP/Poch figures, know some is fairly obvious like the Hoth Rebel trooper with the dark brown vest but some seem to look standard figure. Can anyone help please with a guide or photo comparison please. Thanks

I'm sure you'll get plenty of ideas from some of the guys on here

Wolffs guides are always good for reference

You should see if you can pick up a copy of Javier Ruilopez’s Made in Spain book. It’s a fantastic guide for pbp and Poch figures with large beautifully photographed comparison shots of the figures and their Kenner equivalents, along with detailed descriptions of what to look out for.

The first book is out of print but occasionally it is put up for sale. There was one up on Facebook recently for £95. His second book is just being printed though I believe that is more about the ship and playset market.

Alternatively if you’re on Facebook there’s a wealth of knowledge on the Echo Vintage Variant site or even the Jabba’s Court site. If you need to know anything just post something up and I’m sure a few of us can try and answer any questions you have. I’ve got a few PBP figures up for sale on Jabba’s Palace at the moment for example.

One that keeps eluding me is the white face pbp cloud car pilot ang big lips bossk

The pbp figures are easy to get and find if you look hard enough

Poch figures are very hard to find and authenticate. To the untrained eye they look kenner its the paint application that gives the poch tell signs normally bobbly/drip like. I reccomened you buy javis book
