... Because Gainax had an official design for the unit (Which differs a
little from the action figures... The original was white). I assume that
they meant to use it, but never got around to it.

...Unit 02's head? . . . Unless they changed it SIGNIFICANTLY since I
have last seen them...

The unit 04 looks identical to Eva-03. The only exception being the
color. In the said action figure, it is silver/chrome (which I
personally think was a bad move) In the original color illustration, it
was white (similiar coloring to MP units). Why they changed it to that
silvery color, I have no idea. Maybe it had something to do with
production cost or something.
