Which Episode I figures had both holographic and white background CommTech chips? I thought I had them all until SSG posted the picture of Obi-Wan Naboo with a white backgound Commtech chip. Can someone confirm this figure was found on US store shelves? I guess I'm going to have to hunt through all the Toys R Us EP1 clearance sales again!

You can see
Thrawn's List (http://www.figures.com/Features/index.html?show_article=21063&domain=sirstevesguide.com&dom=ss&domain_id=5) here.
The Obi-Wan Naboo is a new find and it's likely that a few others will show up, so those clearance bins at TRU are a great place to start looking again:)

Boy o boy o boy am I glad I don't collect variations. I think that I'd lose my mind. More power to ya' Nonfatnonfat!

I'm glad I don't collect variations either. One variation of the figure is enough for me.

Does it really matter?

To some of us it does matter:D It is just another plane of enjoyment in collecting Star Wars. I understand most don't care about the variations...but many do. Viva La "difference"! :)

I can't even handle collecting carded as well as loose. I couldn't imagine buying every retarded variation. Insane.

At one point I was all about every variation. I started to go insane and stopped.

I care, but only because I don't like the white background chips, I think the holo-style looks better.

I believe that the white background chips are legitimate variations. Iím not into collecting cardback changes, errors and factory mistakes. Production changes such as the white backgrounds count for me. Anyone else agree?

I only buy figures for the figures themselves and not for variations.

It's like the first R2 w/ holo Leia with the big dome vs. the second version with the small dome, it's a change of materials and/or design.
