pbp smell but its kenner?? leia hoth mixed parts??

Post by poncho on Tue May 23, 2017 2:18 pm

i have a kenner leia hoth

the boys on the galaxycorp fb group tell me its kenner and not pbp.

the only reason i queried it is because the torso smell like all my pbp figures.

im thinking pbp exported there over stock of parts to palitoy etc etc and this a hybrid mixed parts pbp/palitoy figure

thoughts

I'll have to check Javi's book to see if there is any information about exported figures. I'll check after work.

never heard of this . pretty cool though dude . anyways I don't see what else would explain it except a swapping of parts . ive studied Javis book and don't recall hearing of it but im sure its possible that pbp exported parts , I mean why not ?

here is my 4 line coo leia hoth with a torso that smells like pbp plastic and i think is spanish pictured left . next to it is another 4 line coo leia hoth, you will notice the slight colour difference in torso and on the left i believe is translucent pale orange belonging to pbp.

here is a more damning evidence maybe.

a UV shot clearly showing a different plastic being used. my nostrills were not lying to me  the left i believe is a pbp translucent pale orange torso.

this could all be bollocks buts its interesting lol!

The Leia on the left could have faded slightly over time, that could account for the color difference but not the PBP smell to the torso  scratch
I'm not too familiar with UV lights and exactly what that shows but it's very interesting mate, let's see what he other guys think  popcorn

the UV shows and glows certain plastics/material.  you will notice one has a different glow this is because its a different plastic being used

here are 2 examples from confirmed No COO scarred PBP figures from my collection vs Kenner

the pbp Dengar LEFT torso glows a brighter white on the left as opposed to the kenner on the right
the pbp LXW LEFT torso also glows more than the Kenner example

the leia hoth also glows more than its kenner partner.

so can you see where i am coming from! Very Happy
