variations in the episode I micro machines/ action fleet line
has anyone found any kind of variations in either the micro machines or action fleet line for episode I toys?
as we all know, the classic line was full of em, (sheesh, practically every released vehicle in the 1st three waves had some kind of variation).
the only episode I variation which i am aware of, is that in some european mm set IV, the sith infiltrator was issued in the trophy maul painted version, in lieu of the green/grey tones used in the common released version.
unfortunately, due to the inadequate shipping and stocking of the later released wave toys, there was never enough stock around to compare different packages to each other.
i was just wondering if anyone knows of any variations,
i wuz lookin' at the back of the card which came with......
my episode I mm pack III (the one i have is a multilingual european version), and it shows three die cast vehicles, (droid control ship, gian speeder, and droid fighter). what caught my eye, is the gian speeder. the die cast version shown on this card is identical (minus of course the missles on steroids) to the af fleet version.
there is no third weapon mounted on the hood (bonnet for you brit types), and the cockpit canopy is identical as well to the af version. (very larged and rear hinged).
the die cast speeder that i have, has no cockpit canopy (the packaging propoganda indicates that this is a feature "retracted canopy")(amazin' calling nothing an added feature....sheeesh :rolleyes: ), and it has a blaster weapon monted on the bonnet (hood for you yank types).
has anyone by chance happened upon a die cast that is identical to the af version, or is this another case of product and color may vary?
