Okay, as some of you may know, I recently got an angelgotchi and killed the back quite a bit trying to remove reluctant screws. It still works thankfully with the help of tape but I was still so upset about it that my mom and sister chipped in and ordered a new one which arrived in the mail a few days ago. Thankfully the screws were cooperative this time around and it's been tested and works, I've tabbed it for now though and am going to let my sister raise it until she can get her own angel.
On closer examination though I've realized a few things, while my original one was most definitely pink the one I just recieved is more of a peach color. Also, according to the packaging, instead of the bum with wings icon that my original has it's the ducky icon. It's got me curious if anyone knows why the icon was changed, and which icon was first of the two.
Here's a couple of comparison shots between the two, please excuse the tape, I'll probably tape the batteries in place on my second go-round.

I have the same ducky icon with my angelgotchi and from what i found out there were 2 versions of it. the first versions had the duck icon and the second version had the butt with wings.

On the Angelgotchi the Duck icon was first, then the butt with wings xD (there was also a toilet roll icon on the US/English version I think - but I may be wrong about that..)

There's info posted on Mothra's web site (Tamenagerie): http://www.tamenagerie.com/angel.html

Yes,TamaMum, it is the toilet roll. Mine is pearl pink and has that icon.
