|Unproduced Bacta Chamber FX-7 4-up and Production Series|
|This is really quite a series, especially when one considers how hard it is to find just one complete example of the unproduced Micro FX-7 figure. From left to right we have 1) an unpainted example of the figure without the white plastic arms; 2) a red plastic first shot of the toy, which has the arms in place; 3) an unpainted metal example, also with the arms; 4) a metal example, which not only has the arms but is painted as well; and 5) the real treasure, a fully painted 4-up hardcopy of the figure, along with its intact small arm band and a remnant of one of its longer arm pieces. Man, it's something else to see these all together like this! I know of very few examples of the FX-7 arms and here we have three of them! Additionally, this is the only FX-7 4-up I know to exist. Originally, this thing would have had all of its thin arms. It's unfortunate that most are now missing.
Here's a nice shot of all the components of the production-stage figure.
On the base of the 4-up is written in marker the prefix number of the Hoth Bacta Chamber playset in which the FX-7 figure would have been included.
