Well at least this guy responded to me when I sent in a question about it, though his response contains one line that always fires off my Auction Crap Detector - "I'm not an expert on these items...." I find that almost universally to be questionable seller code for "plausable deniability for fraud".
I did not paint the figure, however, I got it with some other POTA figures a while back. I can not tell if it is painted or originally that color from the factory. I am not an expert on these items. I did not know the face was supposed to be a different color. I would suggest that you do not bid if you do not want to take a chance. I am sorry I do not have a definative answer for you.
