Below you see three Rebel Commando figures. They all have the China COO, and share the same mould. The main difference is the moulded face (left) vs the painted face (middle and right).

Rebel Commando China: Moulded face (left), Painted face (middle and right).

There is however another small difference when comparing the middle figure to the other two. Can you guess it?
Scroll over with your mouse to see the answer below.

ANSWER: THE MIDDLE REBEL COMMANDO LOST THE BUTTON OF HIS SMALL BELT POUCH.



Probably a small deformation which happened during production.
You can see it better on this close-up: https://2img.net/h/i926.photobucket.com/albums/ad101/Dr_Dengar/Star%20Wars/IMG_6381.jpg

Kudos to James (ourchickecshack) for discovering this small factory error!! Very Happy

I will be honest I didn't spot it without cheating...lol. I was looking to hard at all the green. Thats actually a pretty cool factory error. Was that a mold issue or after the fact?

That is a great factory error. I will have to go through the ones I have and see if it is in my collection.
Thanks Marco & James

Hey Marco - There he is !! I knew you would post pics of this guy soon What a Face

Glad you guys like him - I love looking through all the figures I get and finding the freaks . I have actually found a few errors over the years such as : A Hammerhead with both legs backwards , a emperor and Yoda with one backwards leg etc ...

I have a Power Droid with a upside down face decal and a At-At Commander that was not properly sonic welded right now . I have both of them listed on ebay currently , although the prices are probably way too high . It is pretty tough to price the oddball items when I can't seem to find any other listings to compair them to . I listed them with a higher price just to see what kind of interest they would have - I am always willing to negotiate a price that is fair for everyone .

Also want to say howdy to Clint too : HOWDY !! - good to hear from you again - love your customs by the way !!!

James

That was a nice find. Don't think I would have ever noticed that the pouch was different.

Thanks for the kind words about the customs. You had some great tips.
