Both that you have pictured are the 1988 version of the LRW. I would say it is just the lighting that makes them appear different colors.

In the Showstoppers series there were two different releases of the LRW. Release 1 had the Original LRW:

Release 3 had the 1988 version of the LRW:



Both of these are distinctly different colors.

The one you have pictured that is a darker color looks like the one from the "kit" that had to be put together. It had the dark color of the "original", but the tampo's of the 1988 version.

Did you open it yourself? If not, look at the base and see if it has a screw in the bottom instead of a rivit.

Here are pics. of the Release 3 Showstopper [on the left] and the "kit" LRW [on the right].




On the boxes of my 1:24th Super Magma's, it say's the color of the original LRW is Cherry Red and the 1988 version is Flame Red.
