Re: The Variant Commander Mail Away SteveD Theory!!!

It's a left over bubble, and a left over card, for a left over figure.

They'd dropped down the back of Doris's work station, and she only found them one day when she dropped her packet of 'backy down there too.

That explanation seems viable to me?

Re: Definitive Variants?

I agree hopper. It's one of those few occasions in life where the little fella being a tad softer is better.

So even though it's clearly early, the layout is regular, not alternate.

Interestingly (or not) it's limited to those with the July/August sticker it seems. Underneath a lot of the stickers it's printed on the card, but those card backs are the normal layout. Even though the bubbles are early, and the figures are early.

Another bit of proof here of my theory I reckon from TheKrakenWakes sales pictures.

This ticks the painted gloves barons and shadows variants were primarily early theory off, and the "early issue had the commander in the wrong side" theory off too!

Awesome!!!

Re: The Variant Commander Mail Away SteveD Theory!!!

Yep! That's him right there, with the "July/Aug" flash sticker. Unfortunately we can't see the back to confirm, but in betting that's the alternate layout cardback right there.
