Could just be the angle, but the one on the right looks like he's got white dots in the eyes, while the one on the left has flesh colored dots.
@mrseatle - They both have their white dots, if you look closely the one on the left is misprinted and they are poking out above the black of the eyes!
@madforLEGO - They were purchased outside the box (BL'd most of the sets by parts, never got any when they were on the shelves!): the torso on the left by itself and the figure on the the right was from a trusted seller. The head on the left came in a separate lot I won on ebay. So they're from all over the place!
Same neck and brackets on the torso...
However the arms on the square shoulder torso lack the LEGO logo, interestingly...
Nevertheless, I'm suspecting it is a factory issue as some of you have said because some older figures from the same line also have the variation.
Take the black suit Batman...
For me, what settles it is these two keychain figures of the old Dark Knight Batman... they were converted to be used as figures, so surely it would be impossible to fake these??
And the printing on any duplicates I own from this line are all a bit different anyway, just this seemed a lot more noticeable!
Although my oldest ones - classic space - have rounded shoulders.
