Comparison of the 3 different Hong Kong COO's from the mold family



The easiest ways to spot the differences have been highlighted. It should also be noted that nine potential combinations exist.
The same applies to the no COO versions, the same three left copyright marks can be found on the no COO figures.

Comparisons between brown & olive caped Squid Heads.


First picture showsthe comparison between the two capes. The second shows the comparison between the two skirts, the Brown cape Suiq Heads, skirt is usually shoerter and made of a much thicker material. The Brown caped Squid Heads belt (bottom) is made of a more translucent light silver plastic.


Comparison of the Brown Caped Squid Head general features. Brown caped Squid Head on the right has darker more glossy grey wrist bands, lighter hands and the plastic of the whole figure is lighter and a more softer look, compared to the usual 'hard' torso.

This brown caped Squid Head came from a child hood collection, has a Hong KOng COO and was supplied with a Tri-Logo card which wsas from the same childhood collection, does anyone have confirmation that this variation was available on a Tri-Logo card?

Hi GK, is the brown on the right and is the one on the left the same as CP has described as green?

I always thought this was the long green cape variant, COO #2 and his original card

Pretty much yes, you could probably identify several different shades, and some people refer to them as green, some olive, and some grey. But yes that's the same one and as CP points out, both the green and brown can be found long and short.
