SLJ Info

 Ok everybody! Thanks to Sarah of Amber's house I was able to get things back into English! The weird part is when I tried to use a translator it identified the other language as English! Glad that is over with. Thanks again Sarah!


Several people commented on Samuel L Jackson's mold. He is a Star Wars character Samuel plays named Mace Windu I got new from a thrift shop a few years ago in a damaged package. He is one of my favorites. I just took him out of the box and put him on display. Today I counted 9 points of articulation including waist and neck ( or would that be 16 counting both sides?)  It seems he may have had his sabre. I can't remember.

Ok, here is the weird part. The stamp on his back says Hasbro 1993. He didn't star in the Star Wars prequels until 1999!

  1. Well grandmommy, you know how bossy and belligerent SLJ can be and if he wants to predate his premier, whose gonna say "NO, not yet"? :0

  3. Hello Grandmommy,
    It is Star Wars...maybe he traveled back in time to boost sales ;)

  4. Cool find!

    Hasbro used that body mold for lots of figures, thus the 1993 copyright date... which you probably knew and were just joking around, but I have no sense of humor. ;-)

    1. Smaller Places,
      I really didn't know! Now I do! Isn't that funny? LOL

  5. I agree with Smaller Places that that body was likely used for other action figures.

    I have this figure, too. His beady, little eyes are cute.

    1. Hey D7ana!
      I didn't know they did that. So now I have to rethink all of my dolls and wonder if they were really from that year. Learn something everyday!
      There is something about him that makes me giggle.

  6. Sounds like his head has been transplanted onto someone elses body :D Glad you got the language problem sorted, I was playing about with my TV language settings years ago, and I had to go through every foreign word for English before I had English back again, it took forever! :D

  7. Well, I would have thought there was a body switch but he was new! Live and learn!
    I am not glad you had to go through that language problem, but your experience sure was a blessing to me!

  8. His teeth are very defined and it does look like him. Pretty good mold!

  9. Hi The grandmommy! Just want to clarify. (Sarah mentions that the head might have been transplanted. I don't have him, but I don't think that happened.) From what you say - he was sold in a damaged package, I think the body is his original body. I got mine NRFB, and he looks exactly like yours. Hasbro probably used that torso mold before for other dolls. Sammy's head is unique to him, but not the body. Fans of the Hasbro 12" Star Wars line could probably tell which other dolls had that same body mold; my information is not that detailed ;-P

    The only thing you can be sure of regarding dates on doll bodies is that the doll was not created before the date(s) on the head or body. That's one of the fun and exciting aspects of collecting, how to use the date(s) on dolls, lol.

    Happy investigating!

    1. Hey D7ana!
      I had no idea they used the same body but I guess it makes sense. LOL
      Samuel really taught me a thing or three. LOL
      Now I all I have to do is identify all of my other over about 1 hundred fashion dolls. I bought them most of them nekkid and have no idea who they are! I was trying to think of a contest to help with that process.

  10. Lucky you for finding one at the thrift store. I have seen him at doll shows and he is not cheap. He resembles him a lot. Great find!

  11. Hey there Georgia Girl!1
    Wow! Thanks for that info. He was just sitting there. I was surprised nobody got him, but glad they didn't! I think he was like $3.
