The top picture seems to be better quality than the bottom one so they're obviously Wii U and 3DS versions, but it still doesn't make sense why they would have different facial expressions, I don't think that would be a hardware limitation by any means

I’m not sure if that’s the case. Comparing the “3DS” Rayman trophy to another 3DS trophy, they look a little different. The trophy stand, for example, looks much more polished on the Rayman trophy. I think it looks closer to the Wii U trophies than the 3DS ones.

Yeah, the different expressions wouldn’t be a hardware limitation. My guess is that it’s one of these two scenarios: 
A: One of them is the model Sakurai’s team made, while the other is the one Ubisoft supplied. 
B: Rayman is playable, and multiple trophies for each character (a la Melee) are returning. This may be semi-confirmed, due to there being multiple trophies of Wii Fit Trainer revealed.

Nintendo posted a picture of the Rayman trophy on Facebook just now, but they changed the model a little. Most notably, the face. I wonder if Ubisoft got upset that they made him look stupid.

Ubisoft made the top one, actually.

In order to make Rayman’s trophy, we asked Ubisoft to share their references. We were expecting to receive 2D drawing references for Rayman, but to our surprise, they sent us data of a brand new 3D model that they rendered for this game!! And that was how this trophy was created. It takes a lot of work creating each model, so it’s wonderful that the creators contributed their own efforts!!" - Sakurai

The second picture was first posted by Ubisoft on the official Twitter and Facebook accounts for Rayman. There’s no explanation as to the differences between Sakurai’s and Ubisoft’s at the moment. 

I’m so confused about this whole Rayman ordeal.
