So there are two type of Darth Maul Tatoonie faces out there. I did not see any mention of any chin paint variation on any of the visual guide sites.

Anyone aware of this? which do you have?

This is his lightsaber color

I did not see any mention of a saber color variation on any of the visual guide sites.

Anyone aware of this? Does anyone else have a pale saber?

Also, regarding the belt buckle, it make mention of a "R/C at 3k" Running Change, so I am gussing that prior to the 3001th figure these all had a slightly smaller buckle paint job. The buckle is minor, but the saber seem pretty major to me.

Yes, I do realize that. I guess I was not very clear. The Kenner Standard figures were set up often make running changes to an action figure line. In the case of the Darth Vader, the back of the Kenner Standard Card has a note from the quality inspector directing that a change be made to the painting on the belt buckle. It says "R/C at 3k" which means a Running Change, meaning at 3k that change is supposed to be implemented. I am then making the presumption that figures #1 through #3000 had a slightly smaller buckle paint job, i was also wondering do they have pale red saber too.

So was more asking if anyone had noticed production pieces that hit the market with the variations.

On Darth Maul, Does anyone have a production figure with this chin variation?

Sorry if this is the wrong location, a moderator directed me to post it here. I was actually surprise there was a section for "movie props", but not a section for "prototype toys."

No, I was pointing to those lines' threads so you could maybe get more information on them over there :)
