Ugnaught Unpainted Hardcopy Torso
Pre-ROTJ hardcopies and hardcopy parts surface less frequently than their than Return of the Jedi era counterparts. The brown colored Ugnaught hardcopy torso 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.

The detail on this torso, 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.

Holes located on the hardcopy torsos serve as attachment points for metal dowels. These metal dowels permit the legs, arms, and head to attach directly to a hardcopy torso.

The final photo affords a view of the hardcopy torso next to an unpainted first shot figure.
