Until recently, I have only ever owned one paploo figure.

Recently I acquired 3 more!...noticing two distinct eye colours, I have two of each eye colour, which suggest it is quite common.

Since the Last 17 figures show very few variations, it surprised me somewhat.

Any thoughts or observations?

Yes, the eye colour and belt/knife colours can vary, although I'm not sure how much of the variation is due to discolouration.

Here are my 3 to see what I mean:

Interesting! I noticed that the lighter grey colour looks the same colour as the paint on the Lily Ledy Wicket eyes, nose and mouth.

I remember years ago that some collectors talked about the light grey was the real lili ledy and the dark one was from made in mexico kenner cards but as I understand it both can be found on kenner cards, I do not know if the dark one also can be found on lili ledy cards :?
