Probably the first batch was done as the brown with black pupil, then to cut costs and time they switched to all black. Most figures don't have detailed eyes Wink

It could have also been that the painter simply forgot to paint it  scratch  I've come across a few figures like that in the stores.

Luka, what a pity your elephant hasn't pupils Neutral Are the eyes just black then? Cause if they were only painted with that light brown it would be horrible Shocked 

LeeAnn, that's so wrong! I personality hate it when you see some nice catalog photos of the model and when you receive it, it's not like that at all Evil or Very Mad
