I can see your point, but I still think the comparison is off. The figure's origin is unknown...possibly a cast off or over produced figure, but that's not anything like a second run or reproduction of a figure. If, as someone else suggested, there are a few extras produced and this is merely an extra, then I'm fine with it not having come from an actual chase box at some point. It was produced at the same time as the other figures and barring any defects it isn't really any different. The bigger issue for me is the missing weapon, but like I said, I'm willing to look past that for now. That certainly doesn't mean that at some point down the road I wouldn't swap the figure out or pay a lot for the weapon to complete him.
