|Walrusman Unpainted Hardcopy Arm Pair|
|Star Wars era hardcopies and hardcopy parts represent the
cream of the crop for collectors interested in this stage of the production process. They are arguably the most
difficult of all hardcopies to locate. The brown colored Walrusman hardcopy arms seen here are 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 Walrusman action figure is centered between the arm pair to illustrate the size difference between the production figure's and hardcopy's arms. The hardcopy arms are slightly larger than those of the production figure. The detail on these arms, 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.
