Congrats on tracking them both down.  However, there's actually another variant.  A "three-eyed" one - pic courtesy JuvyD on POTF2.com:

Very interesting. Thanks for the info. After reading the last post on potf2 about grabbing up 4 dotters, I ran down to where I knew there were two available and grabbed em up. Probably won't ever get a chance at a 3 dotter will I? Oh well, I was satisfied for about an hour. That's fine, as satisfaction kills my inner collector. I must always be on the hunt in order for my skills to remain so finely honed.

Here is another thought. The packaging on all of the other muggs matches the figure, do you reckon they will release any future vaders with a new box to match? That would make a fourth variation wouldn't it? I mean, it seems like the two dot version is the final design, and they are either using up all of the boxes or whatever. Does that seem like a decent theory? If I am right, then all of the ones with four dot packaging will be somewhat rare if they continue producing them. Right?

I am staring at TWENTY ONE of these things right now!!! LOL

I only have the 4-dot Vader, but from the pictures the 2-dot one looks a lot better color-wise, so I may attempt to track that one down. For now, I'm still looking for Stormtrooper, Obi-Wan, Jango, and Wave 4 so I can be caught up and able to worry about these variations.  ::)

Thanks guys for helping clear this up, I had little idea what was going on with Mugg variations up till now. :)

My wife found a Chewie for me today, so that puts me up to 3 now.  (Vader, 3PO, Chewie)  I'd be interested in Boba, Maul, and the Stormtrooper, but I haven't seen those for many moons.  Maybe I'll grab Han and Luke if I come across them again, and keep my eye out for Lando and Leia since I haven't seen wave 3 yet.  But I won't even worry about wave 4 (Yoda?  Palpatine?) at this point.

 
Wave 1
  Boba Fett
  Chewbacca
  Darth Maul
  Darth Vader
  Han Solo
  Stormtrooper
 
Wave 2
  C-3PO
  Luke Skywalker
  Mace Windu
  Obi-Wan Kenobi
 
Wave 3
  Commander Cody
  Jango Fett
  Lando Calrissian
  Princess Leia
 
Wave 4
  Emperor Palpatine
  General Grievous
  Luke Skywalker (Bespin)
  Yoda

Yes, the Maul is selling well. But the Stormie and Vader seem to be selling for the most $ right now, driven by the rumored variant on the Stormie and verified Vader variant/design change we've discussed. The more I look at the supposed stormtrooper variant the more I think the difference in coloration is due to variances in photography making the grey look more pronounced in certain photos. The one I bought was advertised as a variant, but I am far from sure. I have another one on the way. Fingers crossed that it is different from the one that I have. Either way, I think the stormtrooper is the coolest one so far!

The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself
