Was there a variant with no dots on the eyes, or does none of them have those white dots?
This might be a bit dumb but I looked a long time for a nice Greedo about 7 years back, even though they ain't rare I had trouble finding it. And then when it finally arrived it had no dots on the eyes.
I think I had another one after that, but sold it and it had dot's but it's just a vague memory.

Now when I try to photo it the light that comes onto Greedo really looks like dot's so I just got to ask Razz
This will probably fit in the "I didn't know that until now thread".

Thanks.

I have wondered about this for years to be honest, I remember them having a little white dot in the eyes, but I could be wrong. But anyway here is mine.
Greedo variant? Greedo

The light reflections look rather comical but I think I finally managed to get a photo where there is non in the center, hence the strange angle. It got a scratch on the other eye.

The only thing I can think of is that the white wasnt applied on them. Possible factory error. Either that or it was playwear. Most I've seen do have the white dots.

Thanks, I had a memory of that they had dots, but I got unsure if it was just reflections on the pictures since it looked like dots on the pictures.

I can't see any wear on the eyes except the scratch, maybe its factory error. would also think the blue color would go away if it was wear.

You can check this page out on Greedo.

Way it looks it was just an error where the white wasnt painted. The only ones I've seen that the white wasnt painted on is the Mex/SA bootlegs where the eyes are painted either black or red. Thing looks creepy with the red eyes.
