Received my shipment from Amazon/TRU and one of the silver clones I ordered has NO STICKER on the bubble - interesting error, but probably easily forged by just removing the sticker.

Oh, and the other two I ordered (hoping to get at least one in mint condition) had smashed bubbles, but I suppose these are the more common version people are seeing!

i can almost garuntee you that your silver trooper without the sticker is a fraud and not an error.

sorry to be the barer of bad news.

Why would Amazon/TRU try to fraud its customers?

u156446, If you got it form Amazon/TRU I doubt it's fraud. Odd's are its just a production error, and not a variation.

There are collectors that prize production errors, and some that think it devalues the item. Though you might be able to get a few extra bucks over the ost of a regular silver clone, or at have a conversation oiece in your collection.

Agreed. What's the incentive for some warehouse worker to carefully peel a label off a $5 product? I don't prize mistakes such as these, but I just wanted to share this with others. It was one of those weird moments where you know somethings not right about it when you unpack it. It almost looked naked.
