I just got an AB Janemba I bought from ebay, he was MIB but had no tail in the box. Does anyone know if this is a variant of some kind or probably a factory error or could a former owner have removed the tail and somehow sealed the box up again?

That's got to be pretty disappointing to discover if you didn't notice before purchasing. The mistake where they didn't paint his white accents is more common I think, but I've never looked for one missing the tail or would have noticed. I'm not sure why some are in a clamshell and some are in a blister pack. I think both were French releases. The Mexican release says "Super Guerrero" instead of "Guerriers" and I'm not sure if they made Janemba... I don't think they did. saiyen is our AB expert here. I only collected them loose except Android 15, who I had to get MIP and open to get him again after selling my original full set.

In general, not really. They're seen as defective and less valuable than flawless figures. A defect would have to be really entertaining to get money. Shiffty owns a very weird ther vs ther Jakks two pack that I don't know if it's a defect or what it is. I'd say that makes his pretty valuable. A Janemba without a tail or without white paint is just kind of unfortunate
