When I read the title I was thinking "why is someone posting about how stormy it is outside?" :lol:

Congrats on the gift, your retriever is a real keeper! :D

Congratulations michael with that new stormie to your collection. Nice to see that your wife is buying star wars to you :wink:

Between variant collectors it is called a tri-logo or euro variant because it can be found on tri-logo cards.

Thanks Lars, nice to know what the variant is, but I do not think I will be tempted to the dark side of variant collecting anytime soon.
It is really absorbing once you start to delve into variants and very stressful I would imagine :lol:

My wife described some figures the shop had, seems he had, Gam guard, B wing pilot, Leia Hoth, Dengar, and a few others that descriptions were vague (little Monkey type figure :o presume Yoda :lol: ) need to send her back :lol:

Michael, the force is much stronger on the dark side :wink: :lol: but I agree it is absorbing and it takes a fucking lot of time, not stressful just a lot of time :lol:

Send her back to the shop :wink: :lol: monkey type figure, don't worry my girlfriend also have some strange names for my figures :lol:

What a great gift and very nice condition - lucky man!

Have you had any luck cleaning the red from the legs? Any idea what it is?
I have a Trilogo stormtrooper that has a similar red discoloration on its legs - I thought it happened in storage with colour transfer from my snaggletooth, but I can't be sure.
Am interested if you have any luck in cleaning it - wet wipes/water has not worked for me.
