Wanted to post t oget an idea on these two figs:
The OTC Myo and Trevagg figures both have a decent packaging variation. Myo was both packed with the cup in hand, and were also made with the cup packaged in the bubble. The Trevagg figure has the gun packaged both in hand and in the bubble. In both, the bubble is a completely different mold made to hold the weapon and cup. (the accessory in bubble is the rare variant)
Now, I'm aware packaging variations aren't quite as popular as a figure/paint variation however, when the OOM-009 EPI fig came out with a similar variation, this variation was highly talkd about, and highly sought after, not only that but all-in-all it was faily common for a package variation, and originally prices were typically abotu $7 for a normal one, $25 for the package variation(you can get them cheaper now of course). I'm guessing becasue enough had it and "wanted" it, or hoped to go for some $$$$.
As far as the Myo and Trevagg, I had asked around at CIII, and again at the recent Pgh. toy show, and darn near EVERy vendor at both conventions had never heard nor seen this variation. It DOES exist, I have both variations, the only variation I don't have is the Dannick variation with the straight tentacle w/ no loop-never saw it, only a pic, leading me to believe this sucker is "Super-rare" :^) ) This wave of variations has now become sort of a "project" for me.
So, after searching, and giving this a lot of thought, I've kind of come to my own conclusion that these could possibly be the "rarest" and yes I use "rare" which I usually don't use too often, becasue I truly think these are 2 figs that are practically non-existant (practically).
Saying this in a vary nice way...Anyone care to prove me wrong? and I don't mean 20 people simply saying "oh yeah I saw huindreds of those, trying to dispell the claim, I mean post some pics with you and the variants. I'm dying to know exactly how few of these puppies there are. To give you an idea, in my group, PSWCS, I think there are a good handful of us that have the Weequay FF whichi is touted as a very "rare" fig, yet I think maybe only one other in the group has actually seen a Myo w/cup in the bubble.
Also, call me crazy, but if you do find one, I suggest grabbing it, not only becasue the OTC period seem to be hot, the cantina aliens, for some were also slightly harder to find than the rest of the line, but now theres a variant of a HTF fig that NO ONE seems to even seen let alone own.
Serious thoughts and opinions please, love to hear the comments.
