TMNT rerelease figures with variations?

Just curious if anyone else has noticed various slight variations of TMNT figures that have been rereleased over the years.

For instance I've noticed that the 1998 KB Toys Turtles are a slightly different shade of each individual Turtle. Molds are the same, but the color is different!

I've noticed that some runs of TMNT 2012 series figures were reissued with different paint apps. I found another Raphael recently with a different serial number and the skintone and size of the mouth decal was different.

Anyone else ever spot little things like this...... or care for that matter lol?

I know when 2012 Mutagen Man was released he hit the shelves with no eye paint. Just dead, white eyeballs. They eventually corrected it but for a while there that was all you could find.

The rereleases of the original 2012 Turtles have worse paint jobs, especially in the eyes.

The History of Leonardo set also severely cheapens the original figures' paint and plastic, such as with Next Mutation Leo's unpainted belt buckle and 2003 Leo's unpainted swords.

The mini figures that were based on the Muta Force mold have been rereleased with the 2003 color scheme and recently rereleased with the same 2003 color scheme and the 80s color scheme with colored belts.

Dark pants baxter
Out of the Shadows Bebop w/purple mohawk

There were many variations on the basic wave 1 2012 turtles:

Wave 1 itself - no pupils, pre-eye-resculpt
With pupils, eye resculpt
Without pupils, post-eye-resculpt
With monogrammed belts and colored pads
With battle shell feet on wave 1 bodies

Plus the 2017 repaints which included wave 1 turtles, battle shells, and many other heroes/villains
