With the void that is new figures over the past several months, I've been spending my free time sorting through and consolidating my collection. The other day I got to my pile of carded Hoth Midget Troopers, and noticed one of them looked a little different than the rest. After staring at them for a while, I finally realized it was because his visor wasn't painted green, like the rest. In fact, it wasn't painted at all! I'm not usually one to get into paint variations or errors, but I thought this one was pretty notable and cool (kinda like the visor-less Jango a while back). I'll probably hang on to it and keep it carded just because of it's uniqueness.
Not sure if I have any other major paint error figures, but I have snagged a few card production errors, including:
- Star Tours R5-D2 droid packaged BACKWARDS in the bubble.
- Saga Anakin (Tatooine Attack) with NO insert in sealed bubble. Target had to scan a different figure in it's place, since there wasn't even a barcode. I hesitantly traded this figure away to error collector Cohens4, but got some pretty good stuff in return for it.
- POTJ Tessek, with a Ketwol Force File
Nothing that exciting, to be sure, but still a decent little error sampling. I've probably get a few other production and paint errors here and there, but these are the few that come to mind. By no means am I an error collector, but I do enjoy, and usually keep, the ones that I randomly stumble across in stores.
Anyone else have some good error figures? Anyone actually collect errors? BTW, when I say errors, I'm talking one of a kind
errors, and not running production changes that Hasbro's made.
So... Whatchya' got?
