The same variant for the old saga deathsticks guy had on the cup color right?

The only variants I recall for Elan Sleazebaggano were the ears/no ears versions

Just a heads up for all you variant collectors.

Hem Dazon and Momaw Nadon are both shipping with a BLUE cup (earlier date stamp) or a CLEAR Cup (later date stamp)...   ::)

Oh good grief - now there is a third variation of Hem and Momaw's cups...  ::)

#1 - Blue Cup with White Rim
#2 - Clear Cup
#3 - Blue Cup with Clear Rim

Yesterday I found the newest cup variations of Momaw and Hem. Thankfully, I'm not collecting every variant, so I passed. :)

Looks like Hasbro wants to make sure that these guys do not pegwarm :P

I saw a number of all clear cups tonight...  Not seen the blue-clear cups, and I own the blue-white one as I found it a couple weeks ago.

Wonder what the reasoning was on the changes unless they just really wanted to pinch a penny on production or something.

I'd like to see all these different cups turn up in a cantina accessory set, along with the little table things and something new; maybe a pitcher or snack item? :D

I got a couple of the crystal clear Momaws today. Strangely the Hems had the painted blue glasses, and I can tell they just opened two cases this morning.

At least I finally got a Luke and three Sandtroopers.

A new variation for you hunters...

The first release of Heroes & Villians General Grievous (9 of 12) had the #36 Explodo-Grievous figure (which was not the figure shown on the card back):




The second release of Heroes & Villians General Grievous (9 of 12), which is now shipping with the Greatest Battles Figures, has the #9 4-Armed Grievous figure (which is the figure shown on the card back):

Yes!
 I've actually been seeing this in the stores for a couple days but care little for H&V( Hasbro bleed an extra buck) waves..same goes for GH 3.75 waves.

I  picked  up  the  GB C-3PO Lava Base Variant at Valencia  Target  Saturday.  The  nearby  Wal-Mart  had  all  three  Cantina  glass  variations.  These  figures  had  much  shelfwear,  which  suggests  a  lack  of  interest.

You mean he's shipping with two different bases?   ???

I hadn't heard about that one yet...

I found a grievous Heroes and Villan figure (4 Saber variation) at a Target.  I also bought a production error Sandtrooper where his left hand is filled in with plastic.  I can't hold his weapon  :-\

I've seen the filled-in-hand version of the Sandtrooper as well Brent, I think it's a common (or semi-common) error with this figure...

Also a weird little thing I got in the mail recently from Slothus...  He sent me some Sandtroopers he'd picked up extra, and the one's pack has a lot of bronze-ish or gold-ish translucent paint on the backpack for weathering.  It's the only one I have with this paint on the pack out of like well over 10 Sandtroopers (I haven't done a headcount but it's a lot now).

It's weird and very noticeable especially compared to other ST backpacks.  Very odd.
