The additional paint on the arms of the 2nd Iggy looks like someone has tried to make it resemble the 12" scale version.

I hear what your saying about the 12" figure and I kind of agree. The paint on the arms matt where as the belt is gloss.

Checking my records I purchased it in the UK from eBay roughly 6 years as part of a bulk collection.

Before making this post I searched the net trying to find one like it and nothing, so I'll settle for a 'fake'.

Any thoughts on the first figure with the unusual coo?

I've not seen one the same as yours before, but from what I can see, your 1st Iggy appears to have the remains of the original coo. The deformtion could be a result of: a cooling error, if the torso was removed from the mould too soon or possibly a worn or dirty mould.
I'm sure others will chime in. Smile

Hmm? nice to see this PAL back. - I to have a Black painted arm IG -88 thought maybe it was a custom-- Ill take a second look and see if its just modeling paint applied to the arms..
Mine is grey but with a different COO marking- the one with the L lining up with the Right side of the © and an unpainted version wiht the same coo was found on a US ESB 31bk card. The joint paint on mine is semi gloss and very similar in color to the belt paint. SO similar in fact.. Im holding out hope its a rarity.. ??
So many figs so liitle time..

My joint paint was MATT black, which was very different to the GLOSS ammo belt.

how about these Ig-88 figures with double hollow eyes ? The first time I noticed one I wrote it off as a error . But they keep popping up in with figures I purchase . I know I have seen at least 10 identical head sculpts over the last 5 + years . I can see slight differences elsewhere in the sculpt (including the coo) .

Yes - the double hollow eye figure on the left appears to be a #1 coo - the regular hollow eye looks like a #2 .

here are some more pics of another double eye #1 coo that I just sold recently to another collector here at TIG - I will let him come forward himself if he wants to Wink . In these pics the double eye is on the right - it is not the same figure that is in my first post about these guys .

I started seeing these "variants" awhile back and just kept dismissing them as factory errors but now I have seen so many that I am really starting to think there may be more to them unsure

I've not come across one of these either, not that I noticed anyways. Maybe its a kenner US thing as Pat also has one in the FOTW thread but with COO 2
