Merry & Pippin vs. Moria Orc (Green Eyes, and alternate paint application First Release)
A variation exists with the Moria Orc from the Merry & Pippin vs. Moria Orc two pack from the early assortment of the Fellow of the Ring two pack.
The Moria Orc found with early Date Stamps of 2001 contains some differences when compared to the later released two pack version. The example identified was also found to be fastened with bright orange tags.
Beginning with the head area, the eyes are painted green and he lacks the black dotted freckles on one side of his head. Moving down to the torso area and the paint application used is more dull and his wrist is painted with the same rusty appearance as his body armor. Moving down to the legs, and you can clearly see that this version is painted primarily black with reddish highlights appearing somewhat clean. Finally the sword and shield is painted in what appears to be a vertical or column style application, using the same dull color as painted on his armor, this is clearly seen interchanged with the black.
The example shown has a Date Stamp of 19801.
