    I was at zellers today, and I saw the titanium star wars figures... they had a couple boba fetts and a couple darth vaders..

    but one darth vader stood out.. he had no paint on the die-cast parts

    is this a variant, or do the quality control guys at hasbro just suck that much?

    He is a variant "vintage finish" style with less paint and more silver showing. But he's not really that hard to find. It also says on the package, "Vintage finish" on those like that.

    ooh ok, cuz the packaging of both of them were identical, I thought maybe he was a different version, but I checked both for about 2 minutes, and there was no marking of him being different

    I just checked ebay, and the silver ones have stickers taht say vintage finish, this one never had that sticker, it was the same as the others, cept the toy had no paint on it :p 

    oh well

    Yeah, I've seen him at TRU and Zellers. Hasbro really seems to like going with unpainted mono-colour paint schemes with the SW line.

    I think they're doing that with every figure. If memory serves they're 4 per case, 2 per figure and one each per mold in painted and non-painted. Not sure if they kept that up for the Sandtrooper/whoever that lizard guy is wave though.

    They have. Both figures have vintage versions.
