A-Wing Pilot - Tycho Celchu

Just picked up one these figures from the 30th Anniversary line of figures. On the card this figure really looks great. The sculpt for the body and clothing is one of the best to date. The wrinkles and folds in the fabric look really real, and there are some nice paint details.

That is until you take his helmet off. The figure comes with the helmet in place so you only really get to see this when you take him out of the packet.

What's the hell is wrong with his eyes!

I've discussed this topic before about how mint a figure can be as even when you get a brand new figure out of the box there is always something that's not quite right. But this figure takes it to another level. I've had a look at some over versions of this figure and they all seem to suffer from the same problem. I'm guessing this maybe why the figure comes with his helmet on so you can't see the face until you've paid for it.
