Indy Jones Misprint?

I just bought a Shanghai Chase a few months ago and noticed on the Willie Scott fig that her eyes are looking sideways on her scared face. Anyone had this problem?

P.S. Sorry, I forgot the number of the set. :D

It happens a lot. If you buy a clone trooper battle back, you'll probably get a mix of eyes looking left, right, and straight ahead. Just something that happens in the printing.

Lego customer Service is very good about replacing parts like this.

It happens quite often especially with the stormtrooper/clonetrooper battle packs. The troops helemnts usually have smudged up black paint and same as luke pilot minifigure helemnt. But like betram say, customer service will replace it for free.

The most distinct example is her lips:

The head image shows a bad lipstick application, while the minifig shows a correct layering. I have both versions in my collection. I think Bricklink still doesn't have a separate category for the misprint.

Even within the correct prints, the lipstick will tend to be higher or lower against the black line, and I like to think they imply slightly different facial expressions. It's an interesting phenomenon to play with when you have multiples of a single head piece.
