The Auri Kobra Khan was released with 2 distinct variations, a common white mouth, and a rarer white mouth variation. The sprayer is thought to be shared with the Dragon Blaster Aurimat. A common symptom of the Aurimat head and limbs is that they develop a dark green virus spotting.
Another condition that is seen with some figures is that they darken significantly. While this “defect” in the plastic would not be a true variant distinguisher, it is still very cool and highly collectible.
While the gun is marked TAIWAN, it's slightly flexible and mid-orange, as opposed to the very rigid, lighter orange gun that is found with the standard Taiwan Kobra Khan. It also sinks in water, as opposed to the Taiwan gun that floats.
A very rare variation of this gun exists marked MEXICO, but that gun is generally associated with Whiplash and in some instances with Zodac and Man-e-Faces.
DISTINGUISHING CHARACTERISTICS: 1. Dark green tones 2. Limb brown scales with no divisions 3. Light yellowish eyeliner 4. Scarring on the inner tube
