Park Starz Ice Gator Mispaint

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.


For our Mystery Mailbag questions yesterday, we got this interesting photo from our reader Caitlin. She asked, “Hey guys! I had a quick question for you. I was recently in WDW and my brother and I both bought one Park Starz from the same tray. We both got ice gators (wah waah). It wasn’t until much later that I noticed that one of the gator’s hats was missing a stripe. I was just wondering what your take was on it and if there is any extra value in it or if it was just an error. Thanks for your help!”
Well Caitlin, although we were told that there are Variants for Park Starz coming out next year, they were supposed to be in separate packs (not part of the cases). Also, by looking at this more closely, it seems, like you said, to just be missing a stripe. We think it’s just an error, but probably not one that would raise the price any. (Unless, like we mentioned on the podcast, you found a person who really liked collecting those type of things.) For now you just have an interesting figure that is probably one of a kind.

Thanks for the question! Has anyone else seen a printing error on their Park Starz? What do you guys think?

  • Not with Park Starz, but I did pull a Buzz Lightyear out of a Toy Story blindbox. Unopened and everything. Mine happened to have two right arms (the curled fingers arm) instead of having one right and one left (the open fingers arm). Not sure if that does anything to the price.

  • I opened a Big Bad Wolf that had the body on backwards. It was really weird, it had the right hands and feet, the body was just wrong. I fixed it though.

  • I’ve seen lots of pictures of the Haunted Mansion Bride holding an ax. My sealed case of 12 had one without an ax – in fact there’s not even a hole in her hand into which to put an ax. Is that also an error?
