This is the easiest decision SS could ever make to satisfy everyone.

They should also make the psyblade more translucent.

XM missed a trick there. They could have offered a Nicolas Cage portrait

Lol! Yeah, that would have been quite a trick.

+1 offer both portraits

and its not just xm that offers multiple portraits - prime 1 and iron studios usually include at least 2-3 portraits with most pieces when they make sense. hell even SS includes 2 from time to time i dont understand why they wouldnt here

one could say that maybe its a licensing issue and disney didnt approve the last one then i would counter they could still make this one better. i refuse to accept this is the best they can do with their stable of amazingly talented artists

- head is too small for body
- face too narrow and long
- neck is too long
- brow area above eyes is too big (ie. caveman brow)
- hair seems very smooth / simple, has an animated look

SS seems to have change the art direction in how they do female face/head recently, like the last year or so and while some have been well received a lot have been controversial to say the least.

This new one is definitely a miss, the original one was a lot better.

I like the newer portrait. It looks more like a comic book hero, less like a cosplayer.

If they took feedback, I wonder if they will continue to take feedback. At very least I think we can agree this shift has been divisive.

yeah this head switch has taken all the focus off of the base and the horrible psyblade. The psyblade will probably look better from further away but I agree can we get some translucent resin please!?! Think of how badass it could be, like the aspen and the new green lantern. They did say they will be extending the arm into the big green gun on the green lantern, so hopefully they make a tweak here too.
