I received a reply back from Kim. As follows:
Hi Dale, now Ive examined my yodas, it looks like the ones with robe-ends going away from each other are from Hong kong and the ones with parallel robe-ends have no country of origin. The ones with parallel robe-ends seems to be the yodas with either palegreen or dark green teint and the yodas with robe-ends going away from each other are normal green teint. IMO opinion its too suttle a difference to rate it a variant.
Hope this helps you out a little more Wayne.
