Bumping this topic because, Ryan, there's been an update on the mysterious red-chested/silver-horned variant of Rampage.In the same source I found out about the variant
, another user has posted more photos of the toy and clarifies that the previous people were incorrect in thinking it was a running change variant, and instead confirms that it was the very first variant of the figure, with the more common orange-chest/orange-horned version being the running change.
I'll quote his message:
Sorry to bump and older thread, but I thought I would try to help
What you have there is actually the very first release of Rampage. I have that one as well and the revision one with the gold on the head and chest. If you have both versions boxes the first releases of Rampage was originally in a larger box with a slightly different UPC code. I have my boxes and boxed figures in storage right now, but from memory the originals ended with 00 and the more common running changes end with 01 or 02. The 00 ones only existed in the store for a blink of an eye. I say the only saw one release before they replaced them with the more common gold revision cases.
Here is a old picture of my Rampage when he was pretty much brand new.
Here is the last picture that I took before boxing him up and moving.
There is also a first release Depth Charge as well that is more show accurate with different paint on his face.
