So I just bought a Hoth Rebel Commander as an upgrade, mine has paint loss on his scarf and boots and to be honest I was prepared to shove him in a box , sell him or worse bin him !

Had a quick look at them on the odd chance they were slightly different on the COO etc and low and behold :

OK maybe it's a worn mold. But I'm 99% sure I've seen it discussed before

What COO markings are possible for him?

Anyone else had some cool variation finds on figures in the past?

Look at it this way. You're a minty figure collector. You can do variations, but you'll never get them all minty. Will you be able to live with that?

You know, not only am I a perfectionist on loose figures I am also a scrooge Laughing and hunting out even more loose figures
that are not only mint but also a good price will probably send me over the edge to be honest!

I am just going to take one day at a time Laughing

Careful Emiel, its catching !

Tis true! The hunt keeps us going!

I don't have space or money for extra carded, luckily proofs are easy to store but I am running out of money for them and loose figures, well they are cheap, small and *kind of* interesting so I think its something I will do perhaps, I think maybe just some of the more important variations, I really want to track down a YPS with the comic actually, I know a certain someone who has one in fact Wink

It won't be a full time venture if I do go for loose variations anyway but I think I have a little bit more respect for those that find it an interesting part of the hobby than I did before Wink

And just think, Joe. Theres different colors to the scarves, different mustaches, and the emblems on his chest have variations also to go along with the mold and COO variations. Your journey has just begun. Laughing

This bothers me too......I am not being too ambitious because I am never going to collect all the figures I want (too much toot) but I cant help but think I have lets variants go in the past without even knowing!

"I have a no COO MIM Squidhead " is it LFL83 down or LFL1983 up ? & is it LL on the belt? I've got a second MIM MOC squid in the post with a slightly damaged bubble and I don't think I'll be able to bring myself to opening it :pale:

Also - how the feck do I check the belt is Ledy? Laughing
