I just noticed that I have 2 different variations of the McQuarrie Boba Fett. The flame on both are significantly different. One is a clear orange with black streaks while the other is a frosted red/orange. I'll post pics tonight or tomorrow...

I've seen several of each.  The flames are either translucent or seem to have been painted over with orange then the black on the ripples.  Not sure if there is any pattern to these yet judging from datestamps.  They also either have a red stripe on the back of the handle of his gun or no stripe.  A prototype painted sample i've seen had the red stripe on the front of the gun handle so thats also something to look for albeit minor.

I figured this would be the best place for this, but I have noticed differences in how the Snowtrooper's helmet is painted - specifically the orange wash:

#1


date stamp: 70891 - helmet has heavy wash)

#2

date stamp: 70931 - helmet is lighter, but still has heavier wash)

#3

(date stamp 70991 - helmet has very light wash)

I found a figure at TRU that was a Han Solo card, Han coin, and death star trooper in the bubble.  I did not buy it because the package was a little bent where it hangs on the peg hook.

I am not a variant or error collector, I just don't care about it, but I thought it was worth noting here.

It was legit, definitely not tampered with.

EDIT:  Wow, I see on page 1 someone else found it too.  Except the one I saw had a Han coin, not a DST coin.

That is strange, Madcow, but quite interesting!

Yesterday I found a Galactic Marine in a Wave 3 revision case, and I think he is the 'color variation' everyone was talking about. The variation is not the figure itself, but the backpack! I compared my latest Wave 3 Marine with my Wave 1 Marine and found that Wave 3 Marine has a WAYYYY dirtier backpack than the Wave 1 Marine. Ill provide some pics later today, forgot to do so earlier. Im pretty sure thats the color variation!

the backpacks are always different. out of the 12 i have 4 maybe 5 of them have extrememly dirty packs..and its all wave one....no variation

Apparently the Comic Packs Wave 3 Luke/Mara set is shipping with a variation... Mara has a blue/purple or green lightsaber:



Thanks to Jayson for the heads up.  ;)

I think it goes something like this:

Purple Saber - the one given to her by Palpatine during her time as the Emperor's Hand
Blue Saber - the one given to her by Luke during/after HttE (it's actually Anakin's saber that Luke lost at Cloud City)
Green Saber - she makes this one at some point in the NJO era... I think?

I'm not 100% sure on those details, but that's the general idea.

Does this pertain to SAGA Legends figure too? If so, I have a Battle Droid 2-pack first version with the OOM-9 type droid without the yellow dot on the chest. I have only found one like that so far, so I think itís an error over a variation. Iíll work on pictures and would like to know if anyone else found one like that.

My CZ-4 coin says A New Hope on the back, while this one has Return Of The Jedi on the back. Sorry, no pictures of my coin.

Mine says ANH as well.

Looking at ST guide more closely, I think they just used the same image for the back of CZ-4's coin as they did for Umpass-stay.
