Some great stuff so far guys - loving the mixture of MOC, extensive cardback runs and figure variants!

I've always loved the CCP. Even as a kid I found the look so different to the other figures, and I'm sure I bought him as soon as I could.

Here are my two MOC - one ESB Kenner 45-back, the other ROTJ Kenner 48-back. The ROTJ MOC is very much a beater, but I love the fact it has the coin offer sticker on, plus it cost the same as a loose complete CCP!

And before anyone makes any comments on the reflection on the ESB MOC... That's no moon, it's the top of my head! :lol: :wink:

Thanks for sharing, and thanks too for joining in so regularly with these Toy of the Week threads. I really look forward to seeing what others post, so it's great to have a regular poster like yourself sharing your collection with the Forum.


Thanks for that. I really appreciate that. :) I also like to see what other people post on here and also see what Lars says about my beaters.

A weird story about this CCP. I bought a 79 back Han Hoth from Australia and this 79 back CCP arrived instead. Packed in a tiny box and it smashed through the bubble so a real waste.

A few days later the Han arrived in a similar box and had also smashed through. The Australian cards have such yellow bubbles and are so fragile.

Anyway the seller let me keep the CCP to offset he damaged Han but I sold it shortly after.

It may not look much but 79 backs are hard to find

Andy what a crazy story, 2 smashed moc mailed in 2 packets from australia :shock: Was the packing very bad ? :?

But that cloud car pilot on that moc looks fantastic, I can't see any damage on the bubble :?

A quick glance at most Cloud Car Pilots might make you think they are all the same, however a closer inspection reveals a surprising number of small differences which will interest variant collectors and send everyone else to sleep :-D

From left to right, I have:

1 ) a round belt buckle, 3 vertical squares on holster front, light yellow boots, very dark grey belt, pale pink face, dark orange helmet, long thin neck, narrow stance, which I have paired with light grey accessories (rightly or wrongly!).

2 ) an octagonal belt buckle, 1 square and 1 vertical rectangle on holster front, light yellow boots, light grey belt, peach face, light orange helmet, long thin neck, wide stance, light grey accessories, soft sculpt torso.

All the rest also have octagonal belt buckles with 1 square and 1 vertical rectangle on the holster front, and I have given them (rightly or wrongly) light grey accessories, apart from #7, which I have given (for the hell of it!) dark grey / brown accessories, and the Lili Ledy at #9 which has darker accessories. They all (apart from the Lili Ledy at #9) also have dark grey belts, and also all (apart from #7 & #9) have soft sculpt torsos:

3 ) slightly darker yellow boots, dark peach face, light orange helmet, long thin neck, narrow stance.

4 ) light yellow boots, pink face, dark orange helmet, long thin neck, narrow stance.

5 ) light yellow boots, dark peach face, mid orange helmet, slightly fatter neck, wide stance.

6 ) light yellow boots, dark peach face, mid orange helmet, no neck, narrow stance.

7 ) slightly darker yellow boots, pink face, dark orange helmet, fat neck, narrow stance, shiny fine sculpt torso.

8 ) very pale yellow boots, pink face, dark orange helmet, fat neck, narrow stance.

9 ) Lili Ledy, bright canary yellow boots, dark blue / grey belt, pink face, dark orange helmet, fat neck, narrow stance, matte fine sculpt torso, very dark grey accessories (sadly missing the communicator :-()

Here are my cloud car pilot collection. Funny I did not see any for sale when I was a kid in the 80s so I did not have one and I do not find many in danish childhood lots.

Now THAT really is an Air Force! :-)

Another great collection, Lars. Is every figure shown a different COO variant, or do your photos show multiple examples of some of them? Either way, thanks for sharing!

He popped right out of the bottom. Han fared better as just his feet punched through but both were posted in cardboard boxes the exact size of the card backs. You have a great collection Lars, I should have sold you the 79 back :)

Thanks, now I only need a huge lot of cloud cars for them :lol:

No there are 14 variants and 3 extra for army building in the lot. Between them there are 8 different coo and no coo and I still have some to hunt :D

Could have been cool if kenner had made some more playsets for cloud city 8)

Maybe it would have helped if he had mailed them in a bigger box, sorry to read they got damaged in the mail. No problem with the 79 back, there is always another some place for sale, I think :? But thanks for thinking about me :D Thanks andy for the very kind words :D
