Here are the minimates sets I ordered from AFX. The Panthro figures in the set are different. One set has a Panthro with NO EMBLEM on his belt buckle. I contacted AFX about this, but have not gotten a reply yet. Has anyone else gotten a set like this?

I ordered 3 packs. Here is one of the "ultra rare variants" that I got.

Is that the seriously exclusive 'lazy packing' variant?

Looks like this is not just a random defect, but it looks like a few sets may have been released with Panthro missing his emblem. Here's an image I found and a link to the site.

Your son has good eyes. Since these sets are limited edition of 3,000, maybe these variants will have some value in the future.

TJ- a 3K run is alot for collectibles these days don't you think? i really don't think they will be worth much, if anything...and he already opened it so there's no value there... I did buy 2 sets on ebay (overpaid to boot) and they shipped 1 short so i'm waiting on that set, which will be placed in a box in the closet until he's older

Got mine today, terrible paint on them. The swords eye is nearly gone and Jaga's logo might as well be on the side of his cape...... nicely done....... :/

I haven't opened mine yet. I'll have to check the logo on Panthro on my set.
