My guess is the ears will be the same. I had found out shortly after the initial pics were released they were not coming out until April, but was told in confidence -- no explanation given as to why. Now that the "news" is public, my guess is they couldn't get the production line done in time for the planned Feb release. I was really bummed as I was hoping to get them before I went back home to Asia in a couple weeks. I just really wish they would bring them out in Duffy size!
