I don't see the blue one anymore.  I only saw that one at the beggining.  Nowadays I only see the green/brown/grey one.


I have the blue one, but have yet to see the green one. I assumed the green one came out first.

I just found the green one for the first time yesterday. Up until that point, all I'd seen were a bunch of blues.

Weird, I have yet to see the green one.  Maybe the distribution is somewhat regional (like #23)?
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

There's supposedly been a slight (intentional) color modification to the Dooku saber that's included with Anakin, going from a pinkish hue, to more of a red...

I thought it went from the red saber to the pinkish saber? I only seen a few of the red ones when the variation started showing up , and now I only see pink sabers.

Yeah, it looks like you're right.  Most of the reports that I saw and heard early on thought it was going from pink to a (corrected) red.  But now that we've been able to review the date stamps on these, it appears to be the other way around.  Strange, as I would think the red saber was the corrected one...

As for the intentional variant on the Deluxe Vulture Droids, all 3 that I've found so far have been the blue-ish version, one from Target a couple weeks ago, and a couple more today at TRU.

On a related note, did the Dooku ever come out with the red saber, or has it always just been the "pink" version?  Don't recall hearing anything about a red one for him, but just wanted to make sure I hadn't missed anything...

mine was pink so I traded it with the red saber from my ep2 dooku.

Not really, at least not right now.  It was when they first came out several weeks ago, but since then, I think everybody's been able to find them pretty easily.  I know I've seen a bunch lately.

I think the red saber version is a little harder to find than the "corrected" pink saber version though.

meena tillis variation / error
« Reply #101 on: June 18, 2005, 10:59 AM »
has anybody here spotted the meena tillis variation / error reported about on the rebelscum main page? by variation, i mean the light cream colored face version. just wondering if this is a widespread variation or some kind of unintentional production error where only a small amount leaked out.

Well, the only one I've actually seen is the one that I found the other day at a local WM, and it's the correct "salmon" colored Tills.  At this point, I'm more worried about finding a decent Tarkin, as the one I picked up (also the only one I have ever seen) looks like a Harvey Dent doppelganger.

I'm thinking that this "light" colored version is at least a production error and at most a running change due to a production error.  To make an intentional variant of a non-army builder that didn't even appear on screen long enough to have anyone other than die-hards say, "That guy looks like Admiral Ackbar!" would be one of the more questionable things that Hasbro has done with their little variant tendencies (which I am thankful beyond belief are done sparingly and appropriately).

That said, Tills makes me wish they would do a new version of Admiral Ackbar sometime in the next few years, preferably with that chair he sat in on the ship in ROTJ.

I have not seen it. I would assume the white version came first.
