Probably because of the joints at that size. The plastic used for "clear" parts differs from the opaque plastic used. It's usually much more brittle or more soft, depending on the plastic itself.

The brittle plastic has trouble with tiny joints, like the elbows, would be prone to cracks or outright breaks. If they used the softer plastic, then it's harder to get those same small joints to function properly.

With Tygra, I'm not sure which plastic they went with. But the joints are kept to the shoulders and hips, which are larger.
