It's not a variant but likely to be pre production:

from Jeff's collection http://forum.rebelscum.com/t986657/

I'm sure Oli bought Adam's ( I can't seem to find his pic)

Great pics :Drool: I guess they must be dead hard to find, just like the "charcoal anakin". Probably a dozen produced? Sad
Anyway thanks James for your help! cheers

Jeff's one looks a little darker than mine. Although I'm sure it's just contrast difference in the photos. Also I recall him saying that his had a painted hood. I'll have to ask him.

In Gus's run the pre production version's seem to have hoods that are slightly darker gray than the standard version?!

Not sure if interesting, but here's a photo of 2 Romba leg markings.

Left is "Left-aligned ©" and
