    Luke Hoth Paint Variant?

    Had a good trawl through figure of the week threads, is the small painted chest emblem a normal paint variant on these? All my others have the larger one? Both COO 3 on the guide.

    Thanks.

    My understanding is the paint mask is like a stencil. Hold the stencil close you get a small defined paint area, further away you get a larger emblem. These factory anomolies are not variants IMO.

    I guess that must be the same as his snow goggles? Some seem small while others look large.

    That's correct. If you look at the figure, it's like the is a small rectangular frame arround the emblem. i'm sure that frame is painted on the "large emblem variation" and unpainted on the "small emblem variation".

    Also correct. One some figures the upper part of the goggles is unpainted, which make them look smaller, although the mold is the same.

    I agree on "nearly" every other mask issue, but in that case I also have the feeling that two different mask were used. I noticed the small and large emblems years ago and always kept one of each in my collection . IMO the differences are too huge....and there is no "half large", "half small" one...there is only really large and really small ones.
