Dirty Scout Trooper good, CLEAN K-3PO even better!
Heres a thought that should delight variation hunters and Star Wars figure purists (like me) alike. Hasbro was goodly enough to answer fan concerns that the Scout Trooper (Imperial Patrol) was, well, just too clean to have been trapesing around the forests of Endor all day and dirtied him up for us.
Well I want to be the first to voice an impassioned plea to our friends at Hasbro to clean up K-3PO. Sure there is that handy production shot of the Hoth Rebel Base protocol droid with a black and gaping hole in his shell, but of the brief moments this character graced the silver screen, the bulk was in a pristine, undamaged form. PLEASE do something similar with future releases of K-3PO and get rid of that awful "ink-smudge" on the droid's chest! Sure it looks just like ONE picture of the character, but not MOST of them! As it stand K-3PO looks like the victim of an Acme Trick Pen with Disappearing/Reappearing Ink.
