Thought I would start a thread to compile any thoughts and ideas on updating the existing Class A and B designations.  There are a few that stand out to me as probably needing refined.  Any comments or ideas would be appreciated - or observations others have had on figures which may not be as rare/uncommon as previously thought.

 

Based on my experience:

 

#75 Abdulla (Salmon) - currently considered Class B - I now have 6 of him, far more than any other Class B I have run across. Could be coincidence but seems pretty common to me.

 

#110 Kinnikuman (Light Blue) - I have now run across either 4 or 5 of him.  Like above, seems more common than most other Bs?

 

#172 Terryman D (Salmon) - another common class B. I have run across 4 - a quick scan of eBay auctions in the Aug-Sept 2017 timeframe showed at least 5 over 30 days in lots. 

 

#151 Kanderman (Purple) - I have my 3rd purple - seems pretty common for a Class A designation.

 

#155 Shyaneruman (Purple) - Just in late Aug and early Sept 2017 - saw three in various lots on eBay. 

 

Also I thought I would link a previous discussion I started earlier this year that just kind of died off - just in case I get anymore input it is nice to have both accessible from the same place for reference.

This is an on going debate lol... Veers did a few articles a year or two ago on it, including some polls.  Check out his archives!  Pretty interesting stuff!

Got a link or an article name?  I was sure this had to have been discussed many times over but I can't seem to come up with much anyplace when I look.

Here's the link: http://blog.uofmuscl...rds-and-the-bs/

 

But I've got a fun question, "Do Red #68, #131, #134, #135, and #139 really exist as production figures?"

I know General Veers is not interested in tangling with updating the classifications - understood!

 

However, I WILL STILL keep digging and compiling data on this topic. 

 

Now if only I could get responses from other OCD crazy collectors out there..............................

I wasn't arguing real or not - obviously real. I was floating the idea that maybe they weren't full-scale production figures.

I would guess that some collectors in the know would want to hold this info close as it could inflate the price of figures that they still need.

Sigh...........there is that unfortunate piece of business.

What type of limited production run do you think could have made them? Just a late run right as the line was ending, or something else entirely?
