The inventory for these two minifigures is the exact same. Is there a reason
to have two different catalog items for it? I don't doubt there may be some
differences between the reissue and the original, but the inventory is listed
as them being identical.

The torsos look different between these 2 ninjas, plus one is clearly Chinese
plastic.

The paint details on the torsos are different and there should be 2 different
entries for the torso, one belonging to the original and one belonging to the
reissue.

Yeah, I see it now. Very subtle. Good eye!

There's also that policeman one. It looks like the torso is a different mold,
but I'm not sure whether there's a separate catalog entry for the different
shoulder shapes on the torsos.
