It's also possible that the spayer ran out of paint and they couldn't or didn't stop production until it was too late. Thus a number not having the paint there.

The extra silver on the front was probably meant to go on the rear vents. What are the chances of 2 mistakes on one figure?

I had a black R2-X2 that had some missing silver panels at the bottom. I also saw an Y-Wing R5-F7 in Toys r Us once that was missing the top silver panels on the front half of its dome.

Like I siad, I think these are mostly cases where a certain sprayer in the line ran out of paint, so they just let the figures roll on. QC probably figured it was a big problem or didn't see it or didn't really care.

I just grabbed an extra one of this guy.... at Five Below!?

Not sure if it's happening everywhere, but a local store got a single case of the WM exclusive wave.
