I can confirm the validity of the variant as I found him the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. Found two actually. From the one I opened, you can easily tell the difference in the darker stripe on the helmet, as well as the extra battle damage AND the brown stripe down each leg.

I found this version of Bly as well as a variant Gree with a different shade of green used for the helmet lenses as well as a slight variation in his shade of camo body armor. Both are improvements IMO.

I think the darker yellow on the helmet is the most significant change. I only have my "old" version here to compare it to, but it does look like they improved the look of him with the changes.

There's also the added stripe on the upper legs.

Don't forget the "silk-screened" (ala Evolutions Gray Clonetroopers) battle-damage on his lower left leg below the knee!

Easiest way to tell a new Bly from the old ones.

So, that's 3 variants now?

I dunno, it doesn't look like it stands out all that much more than the original weathering job on the original and first variation (the shoulder joint color variations).

Yeah, 3 variations:
1) Original.
2) Yellow instead of white interior shoulder joint pieces.
3) Same as previous except with added darker orange stripe on helmet and upper legs, extra weathering on lower legs.

Nevermind the subject line- my bad

Anyway, the weathering on the left lower leg is really obvious to me- it's more pronounced than the stripes in most pics, IMHO.

Has anybody found a brown stripe version on a white armpit ring version?

The likelihood (SP) of one of these existing is very, VERY low, since the white armpit/shoulder ring variant was "fixed" VERY early on. The dark brown/orange stripe variant came out at the end of the ROTS line- well after the white ring pits/shoulders disappeared.

If someone has one it's most likely a custom or a fake.
