This might be old news to some, but some maybe aware of modern variations to figures or miss printed cards within the modern range of figures. An observation I started to notice that there were packaging marketing differences to the Solo range and have discussed some of this with apack already. Post scramble of cheaper Rogue One carded figures and obtaining duplicates, it is noticeable, and I believe, there are a whole host of different markets leading to differences to the packaging and contents.
Using my duplicates in Rogue One (and please disregard all of this is if it is so old news or no-one cares), and using Princess Leia Organa as an example, two main market differences I have observed so far. I believe it stems from origin of intended market or distributors within different regions.
I say "regions", as to start the comparison, the one on the left has Hasbro Canada in larger font within the text of trademark and distribution information on its rear. For now, I will term it "North America" (NA) version. The other has Hasbro Europe information so will term it Europe (E) version.
From the front, the biggest difference on NA version is the "Warning: CHOKING HAZARD..." at the bottom of the blister, "Age" language variations and a code "B9845/B7072 ASST". Its does not contain a white warning sheet.
E version has no warning or age wording on front and code "B9845/B7072" only. The blister also contains a white information sheet that I am assuming is the E version of all the warnings in different languages.
The back is again different. NA has large image of "STUDIOFX" app and text and warnings within bottom half of card. The E has small image on left, lots of text and warnings at bottom of card. The bottom also has a lot of European Standard marks that also leads to believe the market intended was Europe.
In addition to above, the back of the NA card has a sticker stating representation information by Hasbro Europe and import information. It also has the CE mark on sticker which I assume for an import, is its compliance mark to the CE standard. Further alluding to the claim that it was not originally intended for Europe. This also leads to state that there is probably packaging out there that does not have these stickers placed on them so, perhaps like the vintage, a difference in the making?
As I wanted to get Rogue One run completed I think this adds a little research to those that might like such differences. More info to follow I am sure but I think to collect the differences when relatively cheap is a different slant on the collecting angle and as most variations in the vintage market keep cropping up, gathering some collecting value here shows how useful forums can be!
