Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the 8D8 action figure has a major sculpt variation in its legs. The legs were produced both with and without circles on the hip.
Due to the way this figure was built, its legs are removable therefore making it impossible to say whether or not the legs were ever mixed. There are four possible configurations:
* Left and Right Legs with circles
* Left and Right Legs without circles
* Left Leg with circle and Right Legs without circle
* Left Leg without circle and Right Legs with circle
