Rebel Soldier Painted First Shots
The two action figures shown in this entry are painted first shots. While the first shot on the left mimics the production figure's paint scheme closely, the figure on the right departs considerably from its production counterpart. In particular the brown paint used on the legs and head differ in shade. The face coloration is also different along with the left chest emblem.

Above we see a rear view of both figures. It's not easy to see, but both lack copyright information and country of origin markings.
