Hello dear collectors
I received a lot of figures this morning from a chilhood collection (so don't think it is a custom) and in bad condition (with meccano luke hoth and meccano rs  Laughing ). And there was this imperial commander that has some paintings on the right of the red band on torso like you can see on the picture. None of my 5 other imperial commander has this, and I found nothing about it on the net. I guess it is just a very simple detail variation, but can someone confirm or tell me more please? thanks

Just a guess here, but i think its been customised, both the red/silver on the bands have been touched up and the bit on the right hand side have had the same.
See the uneven red paint, looks like its been hand painted and not the pattern a spray app would have left, not to mention the red paint just doesnt look right.
Just my 2c but i could be wrong.

thanks, I looked again, and to me it is not a custom, or it would be an awsome work to look i that. even if I was very carefull, I really couldn't do that job myself tha t look industrial and perfect. but maybe you are right

Hello
actually I was wrong about the fact that it was a french childhoud collection, after cheking with the seller, it appears to be from anywhere since he bought them on internet.
but I am still very suspicius about the fact that it is a custom. if someone ever found something similar, I would always be interrested to know. thanks
