Info: Real or Fake? Biggs figure...

Check out this link. Look at the POTF Kenner line pictured. In the last row is a Biggs figure. Everything that I’ve read about the Kenner figures doesn’t mention this one. Could this be a fake?

I have NEVER heard of a Biggs Darklighter figure being made before the POTF2 line commenced in 1995, might be worth mailing Mark (of Question Mark fame) at www.rebelscum.com & asking his opinion.

I'm no expert on vintage toys...I might be wrong, best to ask the experts!

i'm almost 100% positive thats a fake..

the only way i could be wrong is if it were a promotion of some sort...
ie. send in so many USP's play 9.95 or a Sears exclusive...

other than that i dont have this figure anywhere in my vintage toy archive...

I have never seen or heard of a Biggs Darklighter figure. I used to have a SW collector's price guide and it didn't mention it either. It's gotta be a fake. But a damn cool fake, that's for sure. I'd buy it if I could.

I found the answer. It's a custom figure using the Han Bespin outfit figure, and the Bespin Security Guard head. So, in a sense it's fake. Took me a lot of research to figure it out but in the end I prevailed.

Also on a couple of other sites. I don't remember which one stated that they used the Bespin Security Guard head, but I did read it somewhere.
