|Rebel Soldier Unpainted Hardcopy|
|This is a great example of an early, unpainted Empire Strikes Back hardcopy, something that doesn't turn up with a whole lot of regularity. Unfortunately, the legs of this particular example are missing, but it does not diminish the interesting aspects of the piece. Often, hardcopy collectors are forced to complete their examples over a large space of time, sometimes starting with just a torso or pair of limbs. If you can help Mike complete this piece, drop him a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The type of material that was used to make this piece is brownish in color. This is typical of hardcopies made prior to 1982 or so.
This is just one of the fantastic pieces in Mike's collection. If you get a chance, have a look at the excellent web site he's developed to showcase portions of his collection. It's called First State Star Wars, and can be accessed by clicking here.
