    The anime eyes are from a version of Studio OX art, so maybe the pictures are just mixing them for fun?

    The problem with those new faces isn't the size of the eyes, its that they appear to be paint added directly to a flat new face sculpt rather than being recessed details?

    Either that or the blue overlaps too much around the eye itself and has bled on to the eye socket, creating the weird visual.

    From the Weibo link:

    Surprise: PS-04P Azalea Protoform is expected to be launched as a special edition on Valentine's Day in 2020. It will come with 2 beautiful girl head sculptures (smile / friendly expression). The head carving can be applied to the PS-04 cartoon version and the PS-04A illustration version delayed until the end of February. The original four head eagles of the Royal Sister remain unchanged. After the Spring Festival, the shipping date can be determined and the reservation can be made (Steel Star Limited Edition Exclusive)

    OK, so then my understanding is that the faces with the "beautiful girl" (read: bishoujo) eyes are basically bonuses that will ship with Protoform. But they're really intended for Alternative, which makes sense since Alternative is more of an OX version.

    I'm also guessing that Protoform is a PSX exclusive, with orders opening on 2/14.

    Eyeliner to the rescue! (Seriously, the official Animated Arcee toy had the same issue, and 5 mins with a black Gundam marker makes it 10x better

    (Couldn't find a pic of eyeliner-only customizing, but you can see the change it makes)

    As long as I can order this and everything to do with this mold. Is this all going to be available through PSX? What is this steel star limited edition exclusive?

    Steel star is the direct translation of PSX's Mandarin store name. So prolly a PSX exclusive.

    That's actually my hope/first thought as well----that a "large-eye" face means they plan an Animated repaint...
    (Works for Animated Dragstrip, too!)

    Psx says they’re planning to launch the order for her around Feb 10.

    These prototype repaints are cool. Can’t wait to see which one they do next.
