It Is Just a Flesh Wound (or is it?)

While reviewing some of the new images in Rebelscum’s SDCC coverage, I noticed what looks like a possible painted “flesh wound” on one of the SDCC samples for Rey. As you can see above, the one on the left (shown today at the Hasbro Breakfast) has a bloody slice/scratch on the right arm, but the figure on the right from the show floor doesn’t – yet there looks to be a sculpted “deformity” sans blood. What do you think – battle-damage or a simple errant paint job? A variant between the SDCC release and the retail version?

Target Exclusive 6″ TBS Figure for The Last Jedi?

Upon revisiting our Target DPCI list we posted on July 2, one of the listings (087-06-8397) is now updated with a new coded description: “E8 BL Tango Black”. Since it is pretty specific and is reported as having a 10/1 release date and $19.99 price point, we suspect this may be an exclusive figure for The Last Jedi.
