Title: Black Series Variations
Post by: Nicklab on August 09, 2014, 07:33:13 AM
Over the course of the Black Series I have seen an instance of ONE significant variation that might be considered a running change.  That figure is:

TBS #12 - 41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper

The original issue seems to have been painted in error, and does not include all of the grey markings that were seen on this unit of Clone Troopers in REVENGE OF THE SITH

A running change / variation / correction seems to have been issued.  But has anyone on THIS site actually been able to track one down?

I think it was releases overseas but not in the US that I know of.

Ah!  I had only been able to find a single eBay auction for the corrected version.  And IIRC, that one was located in the UK.  Seeing how Hasbro has already offered the 41st Elite Clone in the correct paint scheme before, I don't feel that motivated the track down the corrected version of the TBS incarnation.

But what about anyone else?  Are you trying to hunt down the corrected version?

REBELSCUM is reporting (http://www.rebelscum.com/story/front/Hasbro_The_Black_Series_12_41st_Elite_Corps_Clone_Trooper_Repaint_Shipped_To_The_US_159623.asp) that the repainted 41st Elite Clone may be due in US stores at some point.  This is based on RS conversations with Hasbro.
