Group shot to date:

Head sculpt/Eye colour differences:
There is a definite difference between the Made in Hong Kong figure, On the left below, and the other variants I have collected. The eyes are narrow and the sculpt appears to be a bit 'Sharper'. There are also differences in the eye colours.

There is also differences between the satchel colours. The PBP figure has a much darker bag as can be seen here in the middle.

Very similar head sculpts and eye colour
IMG_20150323_184211.jpg


One small difference between the two is the pouch. One has a glossy paint finish as opposed to a more dull finish on the other figure. Shown here.

Face sculpt:

Here's a shot of the two MIHK figures:
IMG_20150323_203846.jpg


Made in Hong Kong leg markings:
As stated, this Family of COO has two different markings, 1a and 1b. It is a very slight difference as this shot shows. The letter 'H' in the 'Hong Kong' is slightly further down on the 1b variant. Notice the position of the dots in the GMFGI stamp above.
