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?
