It would be in this thread. The metallic green is deteriation of the paint that was used. Just like the metallic hair figures out there.

well there are more greenish pouchs on some Chewbacca coos (no discoloration). But these are of course not really green...the only have a greenish look compared to more reddish pouches...this is about nuances. Its difficult to say on this pic (green background) if this one has discolored pouch or if its just a not so well choosen describtion.

Again...pouch colors vary and go with certain variants or coos!
Chris is spot on here: " The metallic green is deteriation of the paint that was used. Just like the metallic hair figures out there "
