Duplo vintage (30+ years) Midifig with different size buttons on head. One stacks, one not.
Hello experienced brickers.
My son turned two and my parents brought a huge bag of Duplos to the party. They were mine, which i had played with 30 years ago. My son and I were both very happy to see them. I had very fond memories of them all, especially the bell that came with the school-set. However, that bell was missing.
Noting my disappointment, my wife bought a used set from somewhere and now we got basically two schools, with one bell.
Now I noticed the following: I got two sets of Midifigs (is that the right word for the Duplo people?) and they got two diameters of the head-button. One set has the big button which wedges into the middle of any brick and other midifigs. All of my other midifigs are like this. And the other set has the smaller diameter button, like the ones on top of the normal bricks. The effect is, that these midifigs cannot build stacks or set into "walls". Just at the edge of other bricks, which looks kind of odd.
I have tried to search for this "anomaly" and have not found anything. My guess is, the school-set being very old in the first place, that the midifigs with the small, uncommon and rather unhandy buttons might be the very first of their kind and the ones with the big button are revision 2 fabrications.
Could they small-buttoned ones even be rare or valuable?
I can provide fotos if that helps or is of any interest.
