Looking for input from the group here before outing this. To my eye it appears as though the hands on this figure have been re-painted, and possibly the boots too.




I'm happy to hear I'm wrong, but the hands look pretty awful and nothing like the ones I've seen.

The hands look bad don't they. I always thought Bluesnag's hands were a bit darker than his head colour, but on this suspect one the hands look a lot lighter.
See the couple of examples here: http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t3970-the-tig-fotw-thread-snaggletooth-red-and-blue
Have you asked for close up pics?

Those hands are wrong for sure. I'd bet a carton the boots & belt buckle are 'non factory' as well.
