Look into my eyes.

You might have noticed that the Villager Super Smash Bros. Amiibo, one of the hardest to find (and thus most expensive) Amiibo has recently been a bit cheaper on the re-seller market. A recent re-release of the figurine in Japan has helped drive down prices, but a few users have pointed out that the character has gone through a few changes.

We had an original run Villager figurine in the office, and we've compared him to the recent re-release in the photos below.

The most notable difference is, obviously, the eyes and the smile. While there's no noticeably difference in the figures overall size, the larger eyes in the original figure give it the illusion of looking larger overall.

No official announcement has been made about bringing the re-release to the US.
