Just thought I might do one quick little guide as I picked up the second variant today.
First available as a mail away figure it was then released on the ROTJ 77 Back card. It was also available on the Tri logo and POTF cards as can be seen here:

No COO on this figure.
Comes with two commonly found date stamp markings, Documented below.

Couple of small differences between the two variants, sculpt and body colour.

Here are the two variants I have. One is a bit of a beater, but hey!

As can be seen here one marking extends further down the leg.

Sculpt and Body colours:

The figure has two different colours as these pictures show. The Darker color figure on the left has a softer sculpt to the tunic as opposed to the Lighter color figure on the right,

However, the Darker figure has a sharper sculpt on the figures hands as opposed to the Lighter color figure, shown here,

One other small difference i noticed between the two variants was on the pegholes in the feet. The Darker color figure has a noticeable circle surrounding the Hexagonal peg hole as opposed to the Lighter color figure. I don't know if this is a common feature?

As mentioned above, the latest figure has a slight difference in the LFL marking. The dots on the lettering are noticeably lower. Shown below left. The previous figure with small LFL markings has the dots more in line with the stamp.

There also appears to be an extra dot on the previous figure between the Copyright stamp and the ' L'.
There is a larger gap on the new figure between these two.

Sculpt differences :

As I mentioned, there is a difference between the sculpt on the new figure and the previous figure with the smaller LFL markings.
Documented above, I showed that the figure came with a difference in the hand sculpt...One has a sharper sculpt than the other...the sharper sculpt was on the larger LFL variant.

However, the new figure has the sharper sculpt hand as opposed to the less defined one. It would appear both sculpts were available on the smaller LFL variant.
