I think they just wanted to do something different. Most pieces are of her in the Jim Lee green and yellow costume. The eyes are a bit wide. Otherwise I think she looks ok, but it is hard to tell. They seem to shy away from show the face head on. I have noticed that these Marvel pieces do have worse paint apps compared to the Femme Fatales line.
I did a couple video reviews: https://youtu.be/NvIv74XLVKQ
Still working on improving my reviews, but you get to see some of the paint apps on Dawn, Sinful Suzi and X-23.

Agreed, the Marvel Gallery paint jobs can be VERY hit or miss. As an example, most of the X-23 masked Wolverine figures I saw had HORRIBLE paint applications... but for the SDCC exclusive unmasked version they seemed to listen to the masked complaints and tried to do a better job. There were still odd mistakes in random places, but overall they're improving.

Looking forward to watching your reviews!

I heard that the unmasked ones were horrible. Could have been just a few instances.
I might have to try one then, if they are better.
I thought Gamora and Medusa were nice

Thanks for watching. Excuse my yooper accent, lol.

I think so too. Rather than starting a new `savage` line, they probably just wanted a variant of Rogue.

There indeed are a lot of Rogues in the Jim Lee costume. I don't mind the costume so much, but they're all in a markedly similar pose: flying with one knee bent and the opposite arm in a fist. Too many of those will not good look on a shelf.

I'm glad they came up with this. Now I wish they'd ship it already. Seems too good to be true.

Got word from BBTS that they still don't have a release date.

Anyone got theirs yet?

That's some good news. Probably means it's just around the corner.
