    I need some info on the 2 variations of Action Master Bombshell. I know of the obvious color difference, and the Macau/China issue. I'd like to know more thing that are not obvious from the toys themselves. Rarity for example. Does anyone here have any information?

    Currently I have one of each in hand, but one will go away so now I'm deciding which one to keep.

    There was a variant? Darn, as if he wasn't rare enough to begin with!

    Pretty major variations too : One was more blue in color, different sized eyes and 'con logo.

    I've read about the eyesizes, and that being basicly a matter of the paint application. I compared both figures I have, and didn't see a noticable difference.
    I didn't check for differences on the stickers, but one of the figures has it somewhat misplaced.
    I'll see if I can take some pics. A warning though, I'm a bad photographer with not too great a camera.

    I didn't know there was a variant. If I can dig out mine I'll take some photos too...

    Well, I tried... and I was right to warn.

    Here is one pic with flash... which shows. Fortunately the colour difference also still shows, although I find the colours don't actually match the toys well on this pic.

    So I also tried without flash... which led to a dark blurry mess. Forget that, won't work without daylight.
    And so I tried my scanner... which resulted in, well, this:

    They both look a lot more blue than they actually are, but again, at least there's an obvious difference.

    I may give this another try during the weekend when I have daylight to help. Right now I won't even bother with head close-ups or the macau/china differences on the bottoms of the feet.

    My original question has become a moot point. I thought it over. I got this second Bombshell very cheap, knowing I could make some profit reselling it overseas (sue me). But now it turns out to be a different variant from the one I already had. So now I have this rare figure, twice, in good condition, complete, and in both variants that exist, and I'm selling one away? I think not!
