    It's definitely Mexican. I personally found it, along with several other Auriken figures, during a street fair outside of the La Mole comic convention in Mexico City in 2004. It has the worn Estrela date stamps found on all Mexican figures produced by Auriken and is exactly the same as the other Mexican Snake Eyes figures i have owned, except for the silver visor.

    As i said previously, it's entirely possible that it is painted but IMO it's highly unlikely. The paint is worn, which, in the photos, may make it look like it's handpainted but the paint was definitely applied using a spray mask and not a brush. And as i also said, the paint perfectly matches the silver used for other Cobra figures and is just as delicate.

    Lastly, being a collector for a long time in your home country doesn't eliminate the fact that new items pop up all the time. In 15 years of collecting GI Joe and SW figures, i have personally uncovered several items from Canada that neither i, or any other Canadian collectors knew existed until they turned up. That's the wonderful part of this hobby...new things are still discovered all the time. Whether or not this is a legit variant remains to be seen but considering where the item was found and that other Mexican collectors have seen them in the past, it's more than likely that it is real. Either way, it's an interesting conversation piece.

    Someone here I believe actually coined the term. It is because most of those "unproduced" figures were believed to be stolen from the Hasbro factory at night by the workers, thus being created at "midnight" in China.

    Transformers have the same sort of thing but they call theres lunch time exclusives, they personaly believe that the chinese make these figures in there lunch break to sell for lots of money out of work, so they dont really class them as transformers as they are not realeased by hasbro or takara, but collecters still pay big bucks for them.
    Thanks for a second chance!
