I saw this "variant" on e-bay. Has anyone seen this before? The seller also has another 3 pack "variant".

here we go again... again. Looks like some one just wanted the Grunt and had an extra Rock n Roll (sans the ammo belt) and switched 'em. If this is a variant, we have seen about a million fakes of different things shoved into stuff it doesn't belong in and I for one am no longer excited to seethem. But thanks for the heads up!

any ad that screams "LOOK AT THE PICTURES!!!!!!" gets an immediate pass from me. and yes, I'm sure it's just a coincidence that the "variant" figures are more common ones that have replaced the most sought after ones in those 3 packs.
Oh, plausible deniablity...

Grunt was a huge, HUGE disappointment. The 3 pack that TRU sold was a scam and a half. I don't want to buy another generic Duke or Hawk, just to have a mediocre Grunt included in the set. I passed on the 3-pack and will continue to do so.
Hasbro needs to give Grunt, Zap, Steeler, Grand Slam, and Short Fuze some personality. I know the originals were a bit dull and "vanilla" sculpt-wise (and reused), but Hasbro could really do a better job for us. Just because they were generic looking figures in 1982, it doesn't mean they have to be that way today.
So, to summarize: If Hasbro made a 3-pack worth buying, these idiots wouldn't be scamming the stores by figure swapping. I've reported this auction to eBay and I encourage you to do the same whenever you see a listing like this.
