Bootleg perhaps?!

I thought about that too, though I can't figure out how they would make the helmet and goggles so similar.  If it's a boot, its a fantastic copy.  Even then the markings and paint aps seem to match up with the other photos submitted.  Maybe the black goggle one is a prototype?  Very odd indeed.

I have compared my figure with pictures taken from http://instinctoy.blog73.fc2.com/blog-entry-891.html and they seem to add up

You mean other than the goggles?  Instectoy's version has the clear goggles...

In most of those photos the glasses look dark tinted, which match with mine. I'm just gonna choose to believe that there was some variation in the paint apps on the goggles, ie some got more or less black applied to the glass part.  :)

Well, it sounds to me like everyone has the tinted clear version except Kay, which still begs the question as to where his came from...

After a closer inspection with a magnifying glass I can see the goggles on this figure is not completely black. Mine has a darker tint like MikeT

As for the question where I got it on yahoo jp auctions.

If that's the case, then I'm betting these are all the same.  The clearness of the tinted goggles is heavily dependent on the lighting - maybe there's no difference at all.
