Alright folks,
Something that's bugged me for ages is the boot dent Blue Snag variant. I've not had the money spare to add a Blue Snag to my collection yet so it's been difficult to see, but although I've long been aware of the 'dent in boot' variant I've never truly seen a good pic of the two variants together and what the actual difference is? Can anyone post a pic or a link please.

Here are my two. The dented toe has a bit of paint loss on the boot unfortunately.

A close up:

I wonder about the origin of the dent. My guess: It is a slight imperfection during production of one of the steel moulds. There is still some extra steel at that position on the steel mould which should have been carved away to get a smooth boot.

Cheers guys, that's cleared that up, you can never see it in pictures, and I've sat looking at countless AFA ones and stuff and you never damn well see it! So I've always wondered what it looked like, then the other day I was talking to someone and it popped up in the conversation, which kinda reminded me, at which point I thought... Ask you guys!

I'd definately agree with that Doc, there is no reason for it to be there. would have looked good on Boba's helmet Very Happy
