It's hard to say, but my best guess / opinion is that it's probably real and not fake. Whether it's a legit variation or just due to discolouration of either the paint or plastic beneath the paint, is difficult to say. However, if there was a running change in the colour of paint used for the arms, I suppose it's possible a similar situation to the HK COO Klaatus may have arisen where both shades of red colour arms were available simultaneously for a time during production, leading to the possibility of a 'mixed arms' variant being made. Who knows? It's an interesting figure regardless :-)

I have never seen an ackbar before with 2 different arms so I thought maybe it was fake. But then again we see something all the time that we have not seen before :lol: I just thought maybe others have seen such a variant before if it is real then there must me more of them ? :?

If it is a real variant, hopefully someone out there reading this thread might also own one and can confirm it? :)

I agree, when I found in a childhood lot an emperor with 2 left legs or was it 2 right legs :? then a few other members could confirm that the error was real and that they have seen it before. But never heard about the ackbar with 2 different arms :?
