Be careful though, if you remove the arm completely from the torso, as you want to avoid cracking the base of the torso. Also see if you spot numbers printed on the "wrists" of the minifig hands (it would be noticeable because the hands wouldn't rotate as smoothly as usual when plugged into the arm).
Draykov wrote:The traits I described are typical of figures with parts manufactured in China. Those figs tend to be a bit less in quality compared to figs available in traditional sets. So far, those figs with Chinese parts (the arms with indentations and serial numbers, hands with serial numbers on the wrist) have been limited to the Collectible Minifigure series as well as certain "battle-pack" type figure sets released for original themes (like this one). So, I'm happy to hear those traits aren't showing up yet in regular sets (with the exception of certain Toy Story and Superheroes sets).
It could be a variation in printing...maybe one fig had his face printed at a different facility...but that would still be a bit strange, given LEGO's attempts to standardize everything. Not sure what the deal is.

I later bought the Endor battle pack, and both the stormtrooper and scout trooper had the "pale" face. I assumed it was most likely a misprint only on my pilot figure, but apparently it has appeared elsewhere.
Those pilots must love the sun...
