Recently I picked up a strange #3 Star Destroyer Commander. Once I handled it it immediately felt odd, the head didn't turn smooth but almost ratchet-like, the plastic ecspecially around the hands seemed rough and rigid to the touch and on closer inspection has one or two anomalies.
The figure in question is to the far left, it has a sloppy rank insignia and much darker blue line than the others in my collection as well as my spares I have for sale (not pictured).
The other anomaly is that it appears to have never had the paint dot on the wrist bands, one side is just black however the other side has been scratched up so it's impossible to tell if it ever had paint or not. It is possible the paint on the black side just wore off without taking the black as well but it seems more likely not.
There is also one other difference that could be a bit tricky.....below, is the absence of a bump below the first G in Hong Kong, compared to my other number 3, but the number 3 in the guide here also does not have the bump. So now I have two weird possible production error/variation/mutant #3's I want to gather a bit more info on.
Any info will be greatly appreciated
