    ThunderPunch He-Man. No Silver Paint on harness. ?

    I havn't been into MOTU much lately.

    However, I met up with a local guy who sold me his entire Childhood toy collection today. He really knows nothing about the stuff anymore, and after a bit we agreed on a price, and I now own massive amount of extra figures. All kinds.
    This particular Thunderpunch He-Man caught my eye fast. I have never seen one without any silver paint on the chest. There are no scratches, residue,flakes or any kind of detail that can be seen that silver was EVER even on this figure.
    Is this normal? Ive been dealing with motu for a longg time, I was never aware of this before..

    Does anyone have any idea? I tried to look at other TP He-mans online, it looks like underneath the Silver on the harness is regular flesh skin.

    Which is the country printed on the back? It looks like MEXICO figure.

    It is probably production error.

    There are 5 variants of Thunder Punch He-Man, but they all are painted in the same way (with just small differences in shades of colors):

    TAIWAN with SOFT HEAD (the same head as in regular Taiwan he-Man, all other variants have hard rubber heads)
    TAIWAN with HARD RUBBER HEAD
    SPAIN
    MEXICO (regullar Mexico figure like yours)
    MEXICO LOS AMOS

    No no, I meant standard figure release made in Mexico (which was sold in US as well as made in Taiwan), unlike LOS AMOS figure release which is different, also made in Mexico but only for Mexican market (so not standard release).
    So I said that your figure was that "standard release" from Mexico, which was made for US market.
    Anyway, they all should have silver on their chest plate, so your figure must be some production error or just lost it's silver paint ....

    Because here is the one of the Mexicans who have red chest plate under the silver, unlike Taiwan figures which have skin color under the silver:



    and here is the one Mexican almost completely without silver paint:
