Here's a look at the Bandai Asia 1995 Hong Kong Starry Sky Orgel (AKA Star Locket) vs. the Bandai 1992 Chinese version (either European or Spanish?).

As you can see, the HK version is a little less gold. (Please note that the chain on the Japanese one is NOT the original.) There is also a "2" under the lid of the HK edition. This seems to be true for all the 1995 edition lockets, but at least one 1992 locket has the "2".

I noticed the 1992 lid is a lot harder to open. They sound about the same. The gem on the 1992 one is a more saturated pink.

Here is more detail of the HK one in the gallery:


I've since sold the 1992 locket. For more info about the different versions of this toy, check out my blog post:

:cries: I wish my star locket could stay closed all the way like yours does.

What keeps it from closing?

Well I think a part was broken off on the top of the clasp that goes inside the slot to keep the locket shut tight. I mean it does stay shut just not all the way like yours does. I was thinking of fixing it but I don't know how or what to use.:(

Oh I see. That's a bummer :(

Yeah, I was thinking about putting a layer of super glue on the tab and let it dry and then try to see if it will snap shut.

But I wonder if it would ruin it though....

maybe you should try it with something you can pick off? like tape?
