Is it safe to establish a true variant by a change in the datestamp?
Man, I must really be passing off as a newbie right about now...

It's a pretty safe bet but there might not be actual figure changes though. Sometimes it's just a change in the bubble tray (i.e. the change in position of an accessory or how the fig is secured in said bubble).

Good questions, not newbies"ish" at all.

Thinking about it more, it can be a change in anything not just the figure like you said...

For example the "wide bubble" #11 Vader... will most probably have a different date stamp with the noticeable change in manufacture.

But that's something I myself don't consider to be a TRUE variant.
For me it has to be in the figure itself.
It differs for everyone I guess...

Not the same.
Just the Red has the variant.
A lot of people are not classing this as a variant.
It clearly is judging from Jaybird's pic.

I myself have yet to see one in hand.

Will shop around for one soon  :'(

Was not going to mention because I don't think it is a variation but interesting. I got 2 Clones a week ago, kept one and gave one to DeanPaul (well sold it to him). DP's had a clean front stripe, and little battle on the EP. III. Mine had distinct battledamage on the front stripe. The two clones I got yesterday had the same battle damage on the stripe. Guess I am wondering if anyone else has seen the clean version? Sorry, no digitial so I cannot take a picture.

From Galatic Hunter you can see the battle damage or scraping on the middle stripe:

I noticed a paint variation on the Veers in the Hoth Battle pack. The first set I bought has a black paint stripe on his left leg. It makes it look like something is supposed to be hanging from his belt. The second set I saw, a few days later, did not have the stripe. Anyone else catch this?

I don't know if some dumbass at Hasbro forgetting to put in the last lightsaber coutns as a variant.  It sounds more like a FUBAR.

You are never alone when there's a clone.

Battle Pack Error's
« Reply #146 on: September 13, 2005, 12:42 PM »
We have all heard of the error on the Battle Pack of the Jedi vs. Sith that say's STORMTROOPER Armor instead of Clonetrooper. This past weekend I purchased 2 more battle packs and noticed a few errors.


Emperor's Throne Room


This is the front of the battle pack, but if you will look at the back you will notice that there is a different DIGNITARY shown. (circled in RED)




Hoth Assult


But if you look at the back of the box the General Veers shown is the VINTAGE figure not the one that was previously released. (circled in RED)




The fact that there are 3 battle packs with errors and the Clone trooper Evolution pack has a spelling error on it (Hasbro put REBUBLIC instead of REPUBLIC) that Hasbro's quality control is either going to crap or they don't give a ****.
I have been told to go to hell; well at least I will know everyone there!

I think it is clear they just don't care.  The truth is that they could put out corrected versions further down the line b/c they know some people "will" have to buy them.

(I think this belongs in the ROTS section)

I can understand the mistake on the throne room, it is possible they switched the dignitary out at the last second. Or there will be a variation where the other dignitary is included.

I baffled as to how a Vintage figure ended up on the back of the other one though. I don't think they'd have even considered using that figure in the pack. That is just carelessness.

Tough call.  I'm sure it's difficult to find samples in time to complete the box photography...sometimes you have to make due with what you have laying around!   :P
