I think the most known figure that this happens to is Chewbacca (on his belt pouch) . I have seen it on original and Bespin Leia and Han's hair , Hoth Rebel Commanders scarfs and the arms and legs of Imperial Commanders What a Face

That squid head rainbow shot really freaks me out lol the discolouration is so uniform in most cases. I thought the more red/brown ones were international variants.

Don't forget about cloth capes.  I pulled this picture from ebay a few years back, and the back ground was edited out.  Clearly shows the cape mid change.

Don't forget about Clints pic Chris. I suppose beside the confirmed LL burgundy cape they are all discoloured. I really like this funny rainbow of my Squids but actually don't see them as "true variants"

I don't think of the cape colours as variants either.  Just a neat oddity.  Here are another couple of examples of the capes discolouring.  Again, I got the pictures from ebay a couple of years ago, and photoshoped the background out.

Oh I totally agree but it's just wild how many of them change uniformly, I know there's exceptions.

Just had to share this beauty! Found on eBay. Usually it is the torso that discolors.

Great addition James. clapping I forgot you had those. I remember seeing a picture of them, a long time ago, in a galaxy far far away. What a Face

Here are a few that I have.
