Definitive Variants?

Postby Thundershot » 17 Oct 2015 12:13

Hi folks.

Righto.. thanks to the hard work of Hopper.. we all know that there are many figure variants for us :AFLogo: to find & collect but which ones would you guys consider as being the definitive/best paint or sculpted variant of each character?

Take, for example, :baron: .

Is the black gloved Baron better than the white gloves variant?
& what about his gun? Han Solo blaster better than Uzi?

Or :stake: ?

Which, of the two available, pair of trousers does he look best in &, if you're tight on space, would be the one who gets put on show?

I think your confusing me with our friend Hopper, when it comes to variant documentation he is a machine.

I always liked the Morris Dancer Sonar officer and the helmet logo German Storm trooper personally.

I have always thought that the Black Gloved Ironblood is the definitive version, and that White Gloved version is an aberration.
However, it seems that Palitoy disagreed, and so we have Second Wave White Glove.

Oooooh, now you've got me thinking.

Has anyone here at BFTB got a Morris Dancer MOC? And do we know if it depend on what card the figure came on as to weather he is tassle painted or not?

Of which figure? I've got both space figs with Morris dancer tassles. And I know another fellow who has sonar officer moc with Morris dancer tassles, so yes, I can verify all 3.

I'll have a look later as to which card back they are on...
