Is there a hidden variant among NECA’S “TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY 3D” T-800 figure line?

A couple of weeks ago, we were contacted by one of our Army of Terminator fans asking if we preferred NECA’s new Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D T-800 Galleria figure with the pink painted lips or skin-tone color lips?  We honestly had no idea what they were talking about, and upon learning more, this fan basically found a packaged T-800 figure with different color lips.  We assumed what this person found was just a painting anomaly, (an error that can happen once in a while among mass produced figures), and never gave it another thought.

That was until yesterday, when we passed by a toyshelf in a local store and noticed two NECA “Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D” T-800 figures displayed side-by-side.  And wouldn’t you know it, one figure had a pink set of lips and the other’s was flesh toned.

Take a closer look:

While the figure was advertised with pink lips, it looks to us like the T-800 is wearing a light shade of lipstick, so we ironically prefer the skin-toned lipped version.

So was this intentional or a factory painting omission?  We are still leaning to the latter, but now seeing it for ourselves, we’re not totally dismissing the idea of a variant anymore.

A big thanks goes to Paul for originally pointing this out to us.

We’ll be back.
