Hi Jeff, found this one recently; 3 line Hong Kong COO, brown face paint, same leg markings as black face paint variant you documented... A sound assumption would be that colours & different sculpts were shared & crossovers occurred according to what the factory had to work with for any given production run. Judging by Kenner/Palitoy's inability to get characters colours & details right (and even some names :o ) It's a fair bet production briefs were a bit loose.

BTW just to share an observation; Of the 2 line Hong Kong variants 1 & 2, the actual full 2 lines of type on V2 are not higher towards the top of the leg; It is the paint on the leg that falls short of the tunic, creating the illusion of it being higher. Looks like the same spacing to me, with paint error. Open for debate! :wink:

Cheers-

Kevin

Been a while....
Thought I'd update this with a little comparison between the two Ghost Face Lukes on here. Andy (chazb73) show cased his on page 11 here.
Heres the one I've picked up locally :D

Same 3 line Hong Kong COO to Chazb73 figure. Very noticeable is the difference between the pants colours. Latest figure (much darker) on the left.

Also noticed that the paint application on the saber hand seemed to be similar,
