The accessories are semi-rigid and pale, bluish-green, the right hand has a callus for better handling of weapons, and the figure does not come with a ring.
The following year (1986) Tri-Klops was released using Malaysia molds. The figure is now marked © MATTEL.

The semi-rigid sword is marked MALAYSIA, the armor © MATTEL. INC. 1981 MALAYSIA, and the figure no longer has the callus on the right hand. This release did in fact come with a ring marked MALAYSIA, but it does not glow in the dark like the regular MALAYSIA ring.
