I Need the community's thoughts please on this hollow cheek tusken raider. His left tube troubles me as its not as defined as his right tube. There's 6 pictures of the same figure, I've tried to cover the angles and lighting as best as poss - many thanks

**EDIT - Posted this in the wrong forum, Sorry - Mod move to 'chat' forum??**

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?Hollow cheek tusken raider - thoughts please? Img_1352
