Leia in Boussh Disguise Unpainted Hardcopy
This hardcopy of the Leia in Boussh disguise figure is interesting in that it contains pieces made from both blue (post-1990) and green (vintage Dynacast) urethane materials. The assumption one should make here is that this particular figure was at some point pieced together by someone with both access to legitimate vintage hardcopy pieces, and the ability to have specific fake parts made as needed. In fact, it is my personal opinion that other unpainted, green hardcopies, were pieced together out of spare or reject (though legitimate) parts some time during the last decade.

Specifics of origin aside, however, the presence of a blue torso among this figure's parts doesn't make it any less impressive. As you can see, the rest of its parts are of the standard green color, including the meticulously-cast helmet, which fits perfectly onto the head of the figure. Vintage hardcopies, whether complete or near-complete, are few and far between; from a collector's standpoint, its a miracle that any have survived at all.
