|Bossk Unpainted Hardcopy Legs|
|Pre-ROTJ hardcopies and hardcopy parts
surface less frequently than their than Return of the Jedi era counterparts. The brown colored Bossk hardcopy leg pair seen here
is cast in carbalon, a urethane commonly found among Kenner hardcopies from the Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back era.
The usage of dynacast, a green colored urethane,
became much more prevalent during the ROTJ era, however dynacast ESB hardcopies do exist.
A production quality Bossk action figure is centered between the leg pair in order to illustrate the size difference between the production figure and hardcopy legs. The hardcopy legs are slightly larger than those of the production figure. This size difference holds true for the torso, head, and arms, which are sadly absent.
The final two images show the sides of each leg. The detail on these Bossk legs, and all hardcopy parts for that matter, is much crisper. Fine detail is often subdued or lost throughout the later portions of the production process. The holes located on each upper leg (right photo) serve as attachment points for metal dowels. These metal dowels permit the legs, or any other limb, to attach directly to a hardcopy torso.
