I am by no means a completist, just curious. Is there a list of legitimate variants? I know Snake with black timber and Gung-Ho on card with non-painted anchor exist. But what about others? I believe that some people are confusing errors with variants and was curious as to what other Tankers think.

Snake Eyes w/ Timber & Shipwreck w/ Shark Tattoo are the only intended "variants".
All other "Variants" are either running changes or QC issues. For example:
Yellow Stalker - running change. Colors were changed to make uniform darker. Not intended to be "yellow".
Non painted _______ - Any figure that is missing paint where it should have paint is nothing more than a QC issue/error.
Retooled/No Retooled waists - Many (on eBay) are now calling the retooled waists "variants". Not true. Running change. Simple.
Zartan - Card saw the running change, not the figure. Many believe there is a Zartan figure out there that doesn't change color at all. Incorrect. It's Zartan's card that does not make mention of the "Color Change!". Hense the "Non Color Change Blurb" reference.
I'm sure there are more...like the wave 2 Troopers that don't have paint on their rifle (QC), or the wave 7 duke with upside flag (QC), and the left over Gung Ho Heads from the 5 pack being used on the single cards...
