Gamers who customized Shepard in Mass Effect 1 may have trouble importing into ME3 (update)

Update (3/9/12): BioWare Community Coordinator Chris Priestly has acknowledged the face-code error in a post on the game’s official forum. In that thread, Priestly wrote that the development team is correcting the issue. In the meantime, he provided a link to a user-created tool that may solve the problem for PC players. Keep in mind that this is not the official fix, so BioWare won’t take any responsibility if it turns your lovely female Shepard into a repulsive abomination unfit for human or alien eyes. GamesBeat has contacted EA and BioWare to get a time frame on the fix’s release. We will update again once we have their response.
