I have the same 2 variants of greys too. Almost 2 different colours but I just class them all as grey otherwise it'll get too complicated lol.

I haven't been keeping duplicates of the grey varients but Ive got this one.

The grey on the right seems to be far more uncommon is that the same as your findings?

Yeah, that’s literally the only one I’ve seen so far. Good to know it isn’t a one off, I’ll keep my eye out for more. It’s markedly different, seemingly more so than the series 2 and 3 oranges.

I'm pretty sure its variation but it's all a matter of opinion I guess.

Some have different tones due to ware & sunlight exposure like you say but these 2 examples are not that. They are a completely different solid shade of grey altogether.

That's my 2 cents, I could be wrong but I'm heavily leaning this way on this one lol.

Easy way to tell is to cut a figure open. Yellowing and discoloration are usually only on the surface. These LOOK like outright different rubber colors but checking the internal color will prove it.

If I come across anymore I shall do just that! The colour seems to be uniform across the figure so I’m leaning towards discounting wear of sun bleaching.

There are 2 shades of grey but most colours have a variant. Salmon, mustard, buff all differ. Im not entertaining this as a variation lol
