Three factory errors that have been more readily available then some of the more established rare variants, and that come to mind are; LILI LEDY STORMTROOPER PEG FILLED FOOT, REBEL COMMANDER SHORT SCARF, and LUKE SKYWALKER FARMBOY TAIWAN(short left leg). These are not "one off" factory errors. So, because these are not "one offs," are these not then considered variants? Thanks

Maybe in a new Error Variant category?

Works for me, or "repeat error variant."

I don't think it ever gets classified as a variant really. In my mind a variant is only a change that could be found from the original factory as if it had been produced that day
Example: small head and big head Han, they left the factory that way. A collecting oddity is a better classification for these errors. For example: green limbs Chewbacca, he did not leave the factory with green limbs yet many exist today and some place him in their collection as a variation on the original when really he isn't a variation but more of an oddity.
