    Angry Sick Of Variations

    Am I the only one who is sick of all the variations? I can understand a bunch of them but it seems like every figure you GET is a different variation. COME ON NOW.

    There have only been a few actual figure variations. Luke Bespin's hand changes and Han Solo: Endor's Droid caller changes. The rest are errors and packaging changes. And unless you collect carded and are really anal about having every packaging variant, then they are not somthing to get your knickers in a twist over.

    Very true. I pick up a variation every now and then if I think it's interesting, but otherwise, I simply buy the one I like best (or, more often, the one that's cheapest) I can understand being upset if you are a diehard completist, and must haveevery packaging variation, but then again, if you are, then you have to accept that shelling out more money comes with the territory.

    BTW JarJar, was there and actual variation on Bespin Vader's left hand? I remember a report on the front page about the fingers on his hand being slightly altered, but I'm not sure if it was ever confirmed to be a true variation.

    I don't think it's a real varient. It's just a case of the hand probably cooling oddly as it came out of the mold. Even if it is a real varient, it's a real stupid one, IMHO.

    Oh, I forgot to include Padme's mole variant. That's another one that gets an award for the stupidest variant ever. I don't think R2's legs were supposed to be a variant, I think they always meant to put the new legs on the Saga R2-D2 and it was overlooked.

    It all comes down to the fact that there have been errors and varients from the beginning. Most of the Vintage variants don't even garner the ammount of news that the stuff in the new lines get. And alot of them were alot bigger then anything the modern line ever did.

    Lol, I always think it's funny when someone mentions how mad they are about the number of resculpted characters. Back in the vintage days they were cranking out the exact same figures on twenty different cards and no one batted an eye. I'd much rather have the brand new Bespin Luke than have them slap the old mold on a brand new card, as in the vintage line.

    Agreed, can you imagine if they shipped the POTF2 first 9 now next to the Saga stuff. People would laugh them off the shelves they were so bad. I'm always up for a re-sculpt, but only if it improves the figure, or adds accessories and features that were missing from the original figure. I think about 40% of the POTF2 figures could use a re-sculpt.

    *cough* Han Carbonite *cough, cough*

    Seriously, I want a new Han in Carbonite dangit! With the quality of accessories we're getting now, they could actually make a great new carbonite block for him, instead of a cruddy little shell which you can only look at from the front.

    And they may even be able to give him enough articulation to pose him somewhat cloes to how he looks on the front of the block. That was always one of my favorite vintage figs and I was very diappointed with the POTF2 figure. I think a Saga version would rule all!

    I'm also crossing my fingures for a new Jedi Luke. Counting all the one's that came with vehicles, Beasts, Complete Galaxy, Cinema Scenes etc.. they've probably made about 10 versions of Luke in his black Jedi robes,and virtually every one of them was mediocre at best! Give us a new one PLEASE! You can even give him the lightsaber attraction magnet feature, since he actually uses that in the film, unlike several of the Jedi from the Saga line

    Variations are laughable at best. Most are so ludicrously erroneous that I spit violently at my PC monitor when i see a lame report show up. ERROR is what ninety nine point nine of these things are. Plain and simple errors that should be trashed as shoddy product unfit to get past Hasbro qualntiyt corntrol.

    As long as I get the figure I set out to buy in the blister, with all the requisite bits and pieces intact and with a passable paint job and no wonky or shortened legs or unintentional drop off arms, or shrivelled blaster or accessory, then I'm happy to plonk down the cash for the product.

    As I said several times before; "admitting to the pursuit of imperfection gives us a disturbing insight into the minds of the terminally insecure". A malady all too prelevent in todays society. It is not something to be proud of. not one iota.....

    Variants and errors make me laugh. Most seem to simply be effective in creating an auction market...
