    Kit came with Pack-In background and without. Light or neon green Kit is the only one I'm finding with Pack in Background. Dark green seems to only be on without cards.

    Handnt noticed the typo. Thanks!

    Should be a pretty good review of whats out there. So what are the Variants? We all know there are pack-in and non pack-ins. And there is an error on Padimes face. I mean different figures, not cardboard typos. Heres what I know:

    2X r2d2- Leg circle and no circle
    2x Kit- Light green and dark green
    2x Batteldroid- light and dark finish

    others?

    First off, I heard that the background scene inserts are "first editions"..I don't know if it's true or not. I know all about the differences in R2's legs, etc., But does anyone know if there is any relevance to the imprinted serial numbers on back? There seems to be anywhere from 2 to 4 number variations of each figure. For example, the only "birthmark Amidalas I found had the #13441 as opposed to the ones without which all had the #20081. Same with R2-the plain, flat shoulder has #20141 or 20281, while all of the other R2's I found with the small spoke-wheeled shoulder all had #20561. Is there any significance to this? Does anyone know what this means? I don't necessarily care if they're worth more money because I could never sell anything star wars related..I think it's sacreligious to do so, kind of ruins the point of "collecting". But I just want to know if I picked up something rare or special that might make my collection a bit cooler. You can post here or email me at Luckyjohnny@msn.com
    Thanks

    Hey KEO...

    That figure was in the POTJ line it was the last wave of those figures. It was a sneak preview to the new line & the new movie.(much like the POTF Mace & STAP previews before EP1) It came out a month or so before the new AOTC toys of 4-23-02.

    The wave included

    Jango Fett
    Zam Wessell
    Clone Trooper (all white)
    R3-T7 (astromech Droid)

    The Jangos & Clones were pretty hot sellers. Zam & R3 are still warming pegs.

    I checked some of the replies back and it doesn't look like anyone posted this but you probably all know this. The people at TRU sure didn't though. On the back of the card for the Zam Wessel figure, mine says quick draw action and has a picture for that. But on others I see them display the magnetic feature of the figure, fully illustrated instead of the quick action. It's not such a big deal, but for completist and such it might be worth a look. :)

    Curious on the different variants on the Bespin Skywalker. I didnt manage to get any of the magnet hand versions, but instead I got the peg hand versions. But I noticed a variant in one on the shelf today, that had several differences from the one I already had:

    a flesh colored peg, vs. the more numerous silver colored peg

    The nozzle on the end of his blaster was greyish black, vs. silver on the more numerous ones

    The tubing on his tourniquet was a different shade of red. (Not getting nitpicky here, it was a noticably different shade)

    The slot section where Luke's hand would be inserted was the same color as the sleeve, vs. painted on the more numerous ones.

    So, several variations between the two. Anyone have anything to add to this? Or if this is a known variant? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    :( Guess no one has any info on the variants for Bespin Luke, atm, so I will try with another figure! :)

    What about Zutton? I have 2 versions of him, as well. I have one with a fleshier-tone face, and one with a face that has a greenish sort of tint to it. Any ideas?

    Firstly I managed to find all figs except Padme 2 weeks before 4/24 so I went to a Midnight Madness and found her the difference being unlike the other figures she didn't have pic insert (not something I worry about) but when I looked at her I was dissapointed she never had the mole and overall the face didn't look like Padme.

    Now 2 days ago I found the (with insert) Mole varient and to my delight this had a much better face paint job which looks a lot more like the character and makes it a better fig (also the inner bubble was slightly different)

    So I returned the crappy looking one.

    I would like to know what are the BD Luke variations and which are the rarest and which are the easiest to find. I don't look for variations but am just wondering.

    so heres how it goes, the inserts double the figures value. Hasbo didn t like they way they looked in the figs so they took them out. As is is no figures are being made with inserts.As for the other variants there are , Zam Wessel w/face reveal sticker or w/quick draw stick, the super battle droid has 3 variants the first and most expensive shows the droids legs coming off, the second but still worth a good amount has a corrected sticker on the back, and the third is a corrected back w/o the sticker. Kit fisto has a force action sticker or a saber slashong sticker, the clone troops have 3 or 4 dots on the actual fiure and/or the front pic.Count Dooku ,though hard to find as is comes with a sidious hologram looking either up or down,the latter being the more expensive and rare. the arena battle droid can be found in either a tan or reddish version.The tan is more expensive because hasbro stopped making them and they now only make the reddish ones.and last but certaintly not least kamino escape jango can be found with a flat gray armor w/ no silver on it and it goes for around 100, he can also be found w/o the black paint on his helmet, and this version goes for 200.

    My friend and I found an R2-D2 last night that was packaged crooked. The bubble was about 35 degrees off. It was so funny we bought it, It was obviously still factory too, It had deffinitly not been opened.

    I have 3 separate yoda figures, and it's interesting to see what you guys have to say.

    1 figure is normal, the regular one without the green eyes, green lightsaber
    1 has a blue lightsaber instead of a green one,

    and the other has red saber... they all look the same, can anyone tell me what these are, i'll try to get picks up asap...

    oh, and i've heard fo these around the net as well, I dunno what's up with it, can anyone tell me what it is?
