SUMMARY: The Top Toys Man-e-Faces varied considerably in colors. For the sake of simplicity, we will cover the most defined variants. A few things to clarify in reference to the molds. All Man-e-Faces, from the standard to the pre-reedis and the reeditions shared the exact same mold. They all had square arm pegs as well. They differed in the paint applications.
The "common" or standard Man-e-Faces has typically lighter blue hues, and the tubes can be in a range or dark purple to pink. Some had factory errors in that only half of the arm was painted.
The pre-reedition Man-e-Faces had a few different versions. One of those has lighter pink tubes, with standard to dark blue colors. Another had reedition colors, with unpainted thigh guards.
The Reedition is interesting in that it has all blue legs, as well as blue arms. The hues throughout the figure are a darker reedition blue.
