It's a hollow tubes tusken, small production variations will appear all the time.

There is a no COO version as well. The side of the mouthpiece is often unpainted.
The size & angle of the 'horns' are also different with the hollow tube versions.

Hi, the same seller for the dt luke is trying to sell me a hollow cheek tusken. I have reason to suspect this is a fake figure in a fake ukg case due to TOP horns being not spread out enough, no excess plastic on the TOP horns and there is a horizontal cash across the TOP eye, and the cheeks looks custom made. Anything suspicious in the angle and shapes of the horns?
