Green Crossbow Question
« on: January 1, 2005, 05:46 PM »
So I was looking at the variation list and started poking around about the green crossbow. I was on the page that I was directed to for the Orange hair luke anbd came across this picture:

Its a comparison shot of the green crossbow. So which is the real deal? Are they both real?

There both real. The green crossbow came with the Chewbacca in the Early Bird set that was a mail away apparently in the earlier release from my understanding.

Interesting. I am uncertain which I have, but i know for a fact it is green. I really need to go throw all my variants to see what I am possibly in need of.

I got a Green CB Chewie years ago, and the green's most noteable when you hold it up to the light...  It shines green almost. 

That's my understanding of this variation anyway...  That it's incredibly easy to miss unless you inspect it.

It's sort of neat to have, but nothing to flip over either.  It's definitely green though when you see it in light...  Which that scan looks like it sort of illuminates the gun.

It's true you have to look at it up in a sharp ligt to notice it's green.

The one on Kim Zoll's picture is different cause it's realy really green, also not held up to a light. I remember when he bought it at a danish convention from fellow danish collector Henrik Berndt (Starwarsdenmark). Actualy Henrik (Berndt) showed it to me first and asked what my opinion was on this item, he then showed it to Kim, who bought it right away.

This is the only bow I have ever seen being that green.
