Leia smooth hair: how can this happen?
I've just learned about the smooth haired Leia, and have some questions:
1. How could a manufacturing defect like this happen in the first place? Wouldn't the hair be sculpted by the designers with more detail than plain smooth? Having seen the Mega Factories Lego episode, and the way the Police dog was designed and made, I would expect the designers to not have created a half-baked design as moulds are so expensive.
2. Wouldn't the early boxes picture the smooth Leia? If there were throwing in smooth haired Leias, how could a textured hair piece appear on the minifig box? (I haven't seen a box but it appears obvious that the early boxes show the correct part or everyone would be using the boxes to tell if they had the blob-head Leia).
3. Does anyone know or have an estimate on how many were 'released' into the wild?
=== UPDATE ===
Heh, blob-head :D
