    Hey Hasbro! What does "The Blue Dot" mean?

    SO!

    Interesting thing happened tonight. My Wal-Mart finished their Christmas plano-gram reset and a whole new case of Titaniums were out! Someone got there before me, as there was only 1 TIE Interceptor to be found, but I digress.

    A couple of days ago, I received my Shadow Stormtroopers from StarWarsShop.com, and on the bottom of both of the factory sealed figures there was a blue dot near the UPC. Just a plain old sticker inserted on the cards inside the sealed packages and star case. I thought nothing of it.

    Tonight, on a couple of the Titaniums, the blue dot appeared, and the ones with blue dots not only had their Date Stamps on different parts of their cards they had minor paint variations.

    So I'm wondering- what does this blue dot mean? Has any one else found Hasbro Star Wars items with this dot?

    My next couple of posts will show this dot on my opened Shadow Stormtrooper card (attached to this post), as well as my Super Star Destroyers.

    The one with a DARK slide tab attached to the standard Star Destroyer has NO blue dot, and the Date Stamp is located on the bottom right of the card back. The one WITH the blue dot has a LIGHT slide tab (painted differently), and the Date Stamp is in a different place. I circled the Date Stamps in the last pic of the SSD backs here.

    Observe- then we'll talk A-Wings.

    The Blue A-Wings had significant variations, too. My old closed one had hardly any brown detail paint on it, while the one I got tonight with the dot had LOTS- significantly more. Check it out.

    (Notice the difference in brown on the thrusters especially- also the red lines near the cockpit are slightly different between the 2- one hads longer, thinner lines- like both the one pictured here and my opened one)

    So, what do these blue dots mean? Different factory? Marked shipments?

    Any theories?

    I know it's a minor MINOR thing, but it is making me curious

    I'd be tempted to say YES IF more of these oddball blue dot stickers appear...
