I have this rancour keeper cardback. A freezer centre seems an odd place to be selling star wars figures

OK, here are my loose trio. A pair of no COO's and a Taiwan. It's probably my camera, but the Rancor Keeper's colours don't seem to always photograph consistently for some reason! Despite that, hopefully you can still tell that the loincloths, boots and armour colours do differ across the three figures. Also, the Taiwan version has a differently tooled weapon (see the thickness of the crosspiece at the base of the prongs) and a much more rubbery hood than the harder plastic ones on the other two.

Oh, and feel sorry for him as his pet's just died :wink:

Thanks for sharing this variants, Rancor keeper is a cool figure to find variants between. I love the different weapons and hood :D I know I have the same problem with my camera, I think it has something to do with light :? Sometimes I have variants standing together and on the picture I can't see they are different and other times I have not different figures standing together and they look different on the picture :lol:
