    I picked up a Shockwave from walmart today,there were 2 on the shelf,one had the regular all purple headsculpt but I noticed the other had a minor paint variation to it,on the underside of the horns on shockwaves helmet it is painted silver,but only half way,the upper half is still purple, but has anyone else seen this paint variation on shockwave?

    Sounds more like a paint error.

    looks more like a quality control error, like they just sprayed the "ears" with too little paint.

    yeah but the plastic is purple and every other shockwave has no silver on the head at all,the way this is painted is very neat with no real overlap and its again only the bottom part,I know the pic may make it hard to see but it is a very clean app.

    funny thing is I was at target in the morning and shockwave was there,I went back later to get him and he was gone,but this one I picked up has the "variant" paint so.

    Probably not a variant unless others report this same thing. Until then, it's just a cool looking paint error.
