Pretty easy on that one-- just take the head off the torso. If there's a black neck mark, it's the original. If it's all white, it's the re-release.
A few other ways:
- The newer torso will be more translucent. Take the torso along with another white torso that you know is high-quality ABS. Put them both on a flashlight-- if they're both the same, you've probably got a good one. If it glows, you've got a re-release. This ought to work for the legs, too.
- Check the arms. If they've got a rectangular indent on the inside of the arm, just above the elbow, it's a re-release.
- My re-released figure (maybe others) has the green torso printing slightly DARKER than normal green. My original has a slightly LIGHTER green than normal green.
- Look at the inside of the hat. The original has 2 indents on the inside of the hat: one circular one for the stud (which says "(c) LEGO" inside), and one more crescent shaped close to where the knot hangs down (which gives the mold cavity number-- mine says "4"). The re-release has 3 indents: circular one for the stud (also says "(c) LEGO", but ALSO has both the Design ID (2543) and the cavity number), and TWO crescent shaped indents, the one near the knot being a bit deeper.
Anyway, there's a few ways to tell...
