The Leo Man-e-Faces is characterized by darker blue tones, pink highlights in both the knob and cheeks (robot and human face), and in most cases, variable degrees of color shifting. The figure is marked ©MATTEL INC. 1982 INDIA behind the head, and comes with a dark red gun marked INDIA.
What sets the Leo Man-e-Faces apart so much from other MEF of other COOs though, is the dramatic way it can color shift. The color change is particularly noticeable in the arms. They can shift from their dark blue factory paint, to light grayish blue, to a cream color skin tone that makes the arms look unpainted. The colors can also shift in the belt (most likely through baking in the hot Indian sun) to a dark gray, and the body to a dark orange. The knob can even turn from a pink to an orange.
While the color shifting is not seen in all LEO MEFs, it is seen in most of them and its common for the more color shifted figures to be the more sought after.
All things being equal, which LEO MEF do you prefer? A standard color one or one with the color changes?
