There are no known variations of Deep Six (v3).
The very first carded production samples of Deep Six (V3) were created with a black dolphin. These samples were rejected and the production of the figure was redone with the Dolphin in gray. The black dolphins, dubbed "Killer Whale", never reached toy stores. However, the approximately 24 carded samples that were produced have slowly made their way into the hands of collectors.
Despite the fact that the toy was never released in toy stores, as a result of Action Figure magazines, this prototype has become mistakenly classified as a variation.
However, keep in mind that Deep Six with Killer Whale is a prototype - not a variation.
Deep Six (v3)'s body is entirely original - no parts were taken from other figures.
Like all the Eco-Warriors figures, spots on Deep-Six (v3) were covered with a special color-change plastic. When the figure was hit with water, the plastic changed colors to simulate "battle damage."
