View Full Version : V.E.C.C. (Variation Error Collectors Club)

02-18-2002, 10:52 PM
Hey fellow collectors JDmarlow and I (Turbowars) have decided to make a collectors club devoted to variations and errors, so if you find or hear about a new variant or error (POTF2, EP1, POTJ, EP2, 12" anything) post it here with photos if possible. I'll post some of my most recent finds in the next few days. Please post anything from the most minute error (paint error) to Boba Fetts missing chest emblem. Thanks and look forward to seeing all the new errors and variations. :crazed:

02-23-2002, 01:38 PM
Has anyone seen these ONE LOGO German POTF2 figures?

02-23-2002, 01:41 PM
Here's another one. There's only five in the set.

02-23-2002, 01:46 PM
#5 that's it. I'll post the rare lpc's up next.

02-24-2002, 12:59 PM
I've never seen those before!!! Seems odd that if they only have 5 in the set. I love variations and foreign carded figs!! Thanks for sharing your pics, keep them coming! :) Later, Mastervader

Come on people, you mean to tell me there's no one with variations or errors to post? Someone, anyone?

03-31-2002, 04:29 PM
I found 2 versions of the new Boba Fett. One has a background insert and the other does not. Now, I do not know which one is the real one and which is the variant!

04-17-2002, 12:35 PM
The first version is that with the insert. Contrary to popular belief, the figures missing the inserts are not the rare ones, but the first release figures w/ the insert will most likely be the harder to find. Hasbro cancelled the insert, to cut costs.

Take care,

Do you collect the POTJ figures with the silver C-060A???? Do you have more than just the Gungan Warrior?


05-01-2002, 11:11 PM
re:silver numbers, I have the following......

all Collection 2.....

aforementioned Gungan Warrior
Boss Nass
Jek Porkins ( I've still seen a few of those with silver numbers on the pegs)

I'm not really aware of any others...if you know of any, I'd love to know for my files :D

05-01-2002, 11:55 PM
They are all Col 2 and on .0100 cards

I have:

Saesee Tiin
Fode & Beed
Boss Nass
Jek Porkins
Chewbacca (Dejarik Champion)
Gungan Warrior
Battle Droid (Security)

Do you also have a list of Typeset error POTJ figures?

05-02-2002, 08:36 PM
Ok, can't believe nobody has found this one yet:
1. On the Super Battle Droids, there is an error - everyone has found the one that has the sticker covering up the true "error" but did you find the one where the error was not "covered" up by the sticker? I have found 3 so far. They have the inserts and have a low stamp date number (#20141). The "error" on the back shows the Battle Droid legs separated from the rest of the body. On the ones with the sticker covering the error, the legs are attached to the appendage.
2. I have a Count Dooku who has misplaced his Red Sabre. It's not in the blister package and nowhere to be found. He looks rather odd without it. What's really confounding is how I didn't even notice until 5 days after buying him... (I was looking at the backs of the cards for imperfections...).

There must be more Super Battle Droids with the real "error" out there, Count Dooku is an oddball.

05-02-2002, 10:13 PM
SWJUNK.......thanks very much for the additional info on the silver number cards!! Do you have scans of any of those?

As for the typeset error list.........there easily could be more. If you have any not on the list, I'd be interested in knowing what they are:)

I have what I believe is the only "fat head" Darth Maul figure. This guy is weird! The head sculpt is completely different than any other I have seen! His head is more rounded and his ears are just barely there. If anyone is interested in buying him make me an offer. How do I post a pic here?

06-10-2002, 07:14 PM

06-10-2002, 07:20 PM

06-10-2002, 08:44 PM
Sorry I missed you guys. My DSL was out and its ruff getting Pac Bell techs to come out and check out the problem. I dint know until after. How did it go? I now know you guys met on Sunday at swjunks house but I was at brother in-laws party watching the Lakers take on the Sacramento Kings. When is the next pow wow (sp?)? Do any of you attend the monthly Los Angeles sci-fi convention at the shrine auditorium (by USC)? It’s a bad @ss place to get cool star wars figures. Common Freeze Frame $2, Common Red Cards $2, Common green cards $2..

06-13-2002, 01:08 AM

Was that the micro Anakin that was on ebay a little while ago. I was high bidder at $55.00 or so and the seller wanted $60.00. I have a couple of him micro saber, so I was not really interested in paying the $60.00.

When are the Sci-Fi shows??? Let me know about the next one and I will be there!!

Congrats on the sss luke dago!! And the Anakin!!

06-13-2002, 01:28 AM
It was. He said he tried to sell it to you but he did not say why the deal dints go through. I thought you didn’t want it so I ended up sending him only $50. The $50 covered the shipping as well so it was a good deal.

The Los Angeles Comic Book and Science Fiction convention will be Sunday June 23rd. Here is a link to the website.

06-13-2002, 01:53 AM
You need to come by and check out the collection!!!

I will try and make it on the 23rd. I am having surgery on my knee Monday the 17th and will be in the hospital for 4 or 5 days. So hopefully I can get going enough to attend.

Take care,

Hello all,

I'm curious to see what the total amount of figures in everybody's collection's here at the VECC is. I'll start with mine, since I'm a freak and I have a full inventory of my entire collection on a 55-page excel spreadsheet, my numbers say 658 individual carded figures (not including vehicles, playsets, etc, etc, etc.)
