I received from DutchBear a fox that looks exactly like Starlux one but in a color that I have never seen before. Size is the same, both weigh 5g, material looks the same, however the mould looks like an mold at the end of its life. I have checked some other Starlux foxes from other collectors and all look like the left one that I received from Susanne. What could it be the right one? scratch

I'd say it's a resin home-cast, it's slightly bigger all round and smoother in sculpting yet with a grainy/bitty texture all over. That would suggest someone has taken a mould off of an original?

Thanks for your replies. Very Happy It doesn't look a resin figure once I can see seams, it is almost surely hard plasticSeams are identical in both figures what show that parts were assembled alike. Maybe it confirms that it is a Starlux figure definitively?
. The only difference I can tell is the less textured surfaces. Maybe it is only a home repaint that removed the texture because of the extra layer of paint. Though, it also doesn't look repainted at all! Laughing Was there any later set or series where they reused the mold with a different painting? Well, I have a Starlux mistery indeed. Very Happy

Thanks everyone, I also find them very playful, like the owner is sending a ball and foxes are ready to get it. Laughing
I hope some additional information can be found but until better information, I'll keep it as a Starlux variation. Very Happy

I used a better scale and figured that in fact foxes have different weights, enough to conclude that unlikely it is just a painting variation.
Original Starlux is 5,4 g and misterious fox is 4,2 g, 25% lighter than the original. Also, I searched in an exaustive way for Starlux foxes and I am not able of finding any other looking like the misterious one. scratch
Some examples:
