Hi tikilongbeach, we have several resin sculptures outside and inside our home. Here in New Hampshire we see temps range from 10F below to over 90F with humidity sometimes. The only time we have had a resin sculpture get damaged was getting partially encased in ice. I have not seen damage from sun, rain, etc. On one of our Lowes shell fountains there is some slight fading when comparing sun-to-shade side of the piece, but other than that not much else.
These Toscano heads appear to be a dark grey-to-black color. They likely added carbon black to the resin to help with UV protection plus help fill the resin with less expensive raw materials (carbon black is cheap & used all over the place).
I felt the need to use my two Plastics Engineering college degrees for something useful today.
