    Wolff, Lee, thanks for the expert opinions. I wouldn't of recognised the specific mould or detailing of a Taiwan Luke head but I thought its pretty difficult to boil and pop a Luke Farmboy head so I had suspected a repaint. As you say it's a pretty good one if it is. I've never seen an Orange hair Taiwan Luke before which I know is not necessarily an argument against it, but the sellers tainted reputation doesn't convince me otherwise!

    Someone has a bargain or quite the contrary.



    BTW: The seller promises a refund when the figure is sent to AFA and subsequently refused (see the auction description below).

    So I hope we hear more about this figure soon, whether it is legit or fake.

    "Up for auction is A RARE LUKE FARMBOY ORANGE HAIR. THE FIGURE HAS COO TAIWAN AND THAT I KNOW, THE ONLY LUKE WITH ORANGE HAIR IS COO HK, AND APPEARED IN 41 BACK-E ESB. I'M ALMOST SURE THAT NO REPAINTED HAIR. THE FIGURE HAS A PAINT WEAR ON THE HAIR AND LOOK THE PLASTIC FIGURE (SEE PICTURE). IT'S A TRUE RARITY. IS ONE OF THE MOST RARE FIGURE THAT HAVE PASSED BY MY HANDS. I NEVER SEND NOTHING TO AFA GRADUATE, IF YOU DO THIS, AND THE FIGURE IS REFUSED I ALWAYS REFUND THE MONEY. YOU BID WITH CONFIDENCE."

    Yeah I would be skeptical of this figure, the seller & the supposed refund (when it's rejected). I never received a refund from Sergio, just empty promises...actually I think they are called lies but whatev

    Other than blonde, is the Taiwan Luke Farmboy known to come with any other colour hair?

    First Coo family. Steelmolds on these are the same. Just copied/travelled and with altered coos!
    - 3-Line HK with brown, black and reddish eyes
    - 3-line HK Poch, pale hands and greyish pants, typical spraymask in face (raised eyebrow)
    - China-dude, slightly different to his HK brothers, especially used material.
    - no coo raised bar, Meccano, orange neck, translucent and metallic saber (belonging?)
    - no coo raised bar, Glasslite


    Other blonde haired Lukes:
    The second coo family
    - Large HK spray mask one and spray mask two (its NOT only more fat...its also a bit different IMO)
    - Large HK the DT version. Brown eyes, different spray mask and opaque body.
    - Scarred out (large HK), PBP version with hard limbs and torso. Really bright yellow hair and pink hands. The rarest of all!

    The third coo family
    - Small HK with reddish pants.

    And the fourth family
    - Taiwan dudes with greyish and with darkbrown pants



    Now the brown ones and some bootlegs!
    - Large HK in different brown tones: reddish, darkbrown and chocolate dark brown
    - Large HK with different orange hairs: The US and the so called "AU" version. first is dull and pumpkin, second is shiny and tend to be more greenish.
    - Small HK and no coo (related to small HK). Both haircolors greenish lightbrown and reddish lightbrown can be found on both coos.
    - Model Trem Version
    - Hungarian Version

    Btw: There is no Luke with greenish pants in this setup because IMO these are all discolored!!!
    From the best loose COO guide available The Variant Villain -- new stuff added: Lili Ledy, POCH, I highlighted in red for the answer that you guys where looking for , Taiwan: only blonde Luke with different color pants, sorry no orange or brown hair .

    There is two versions of the OH Luke Farmboy. Uli (Idefix13) noticed this years ago I think! I by now have also both and can tell you that there is truely two different versions:

    1. thin sprayed US version
    2. thicker sprayed version which is called Australian version (not proven of course).

    Both have the same coo and mostly the same spray masked used! the AU version tends to become greenish in some areas! You can see the so called AU version here on the RS archive! Whilst the picture i.e. Michael Vogt posted is the US version!

    Rebelscum.com; Star Wars Toy News Archive Skywalker with Orange Hair

    Both are IMO OH Lukes and equally rare!

    So from the pictures the post starter here provided I would go for an AU version here! Remember: AU is only the name here...there is really no proof where this comes from!

    Hope that helps a bit...and now on with the sale!
    As far as I know, the orange hair Luke has been found in TESB 41 E-Back Hong Kong:

    41-e Orange hair Luke vs Variant only fund on 41 e card which is very light brown with a different shade to it than the other light brown hair Luke.

    A true orange hair Luke is distinctly ORANGE, and all other brown hair Luke's are distinctly different shades of brown

    Oh dear seller is "onetofivedayauctions". Get ready for the disappointment
    Description says "this appears to be the orange hair variant" in other words "it isn't the orange hair variant"
    Check out the photos - Yep it's not the orange hair variant!

    Rule of thumb - If it looks like a brown hair Luke then it's a brown hair Luke.

    As Jedi_Kydus says above there's no mistaking a real OJ Luke! It's a very obvious in your face pumpkin kind of colour!



    Orange hair Luke (5) is often confused with olive brown hair (2) or orange brown hair (3) particularly in badly taken photos!



    * (1) Blonde | (2) Olive Brown | (3) Orange Brown | (4) Brown | (5) Orange
    * I added the last line .
