I got this Zuckuss the other day, the head is very dark and almost "wet" looking, any idea's?

The figure was from spain, don't worry i don't expect it to be an ULTRA RARE POCH variant lol!

I've had a couple of Zuckuss figures with a head like that pass through my hands (I may still have one somewhere :scratch: ). However, mine were also 'tacky'. I put the colour, luster & tackyness down to deterioration.
Is yours tacky?

Yes very tacky, in fact there was even fluff stuck to it!

Yours looks like it has the same COO as the one in the middle of the group shot. I was just discussing this figure with Steve yesterday, trying to determine if a few that I have were LL.
I will have to check out mine later this afternoon for you. I didn't even notice when I had them out yesterday. unsure

I was finally able to check mine, and none of them seem to be tacky.
The 2nd Zuckuss from the left of the picture with the #1 COO Made in Hong Kong "No circles" does however seem to have a wet look to the head, but it is not tacky.

Would it be just the mixture of ingredients that make up the plastic of the head, that make it shiny or even tacky? Or just like Steve said "deterioration"? :scratch:

Yes there are slight head colour differences in Hong Kong versions ( as well as mould circles/ejector pin marks)
