1st. I have a questions about the DST RETRO Cloth: STAR TREK - SPOCK Mego-like doll:
? #1. Does Your Retro SPOCK fig have GOLD or SILVER Rank Bands on the sleeves ????
---the reason why I ask: I just started getting this COLLECTION within the past 2 weeks (yes I decided I HAD 2 have these since Megos were my favorite toys as a very young kid. I of course am impulsive & Obsessive-Compulsive w/ my toy collecting & have ALMOST Finished all 7 Waves, as well as doubles to keep MIB on almost all of them (& SADLY Triples on some aliens: Klingons & Andorians to open 2 to take on the CREW. I decided to pick which ones I would open & which have better packages to stay MIB. I was comparing the 2 SPOCKS 2 see 1 had SILVER rank bands matching McCoy's, & 1 Spock had GOLD like the other Crew members. So i tried to look @ the back of the box, pics on the net, & it is actually hard 2 tell what they are supposed to be.
---so finally i come across the mego musuem & they state in the ACESSORIES Check: EMCE uses the same shirt 4 McCoy & Spock having SILVER Rank Bands. I tried to look at STOS pics to see how they are on the show, again hard 2 tell.
---so i really wonder which is Rarer - to keep MIB?
I don't know which Spock is supposed to have (never followed Star Trek enough to care) but I can tell you that whichever is the "wrong" color is probably rarer. The first few batches were wrong and later they corrected it. I assume that the one with the wrong color is worth more, unless they made more of it. I generally like the DST Mego figures but they aren't the best Mego body IMO.
New Look... Same Great Whatever!
