    Riddler variant found

    I picked up a later release Riddler on classic Mego style card back and found the figure was completely different from the first release.

    The suit on the first release is a slicker, more shiny material, and the skin tone of the head is considerably darker.

    The second release suit is a stiffer, more matte material that absorbs the silk screening differently. It's brighter green and the skin tone is lighter.

    I noticed this as well with Wonder Woman. The initial version was also on a slicker, shiny suit, whilst the latter version was on a matte and brighter costume(more like the 70’s Mego WW). Also, the later Robins have a rubber opaque belt, rather than the hard translucent plastic of the initial version. Weird, hunh?

    ^Awesome! I love stuff like this...it's so Mego-like to have all those costume variations. It's also fun to collect them.
