DEFF include Both portraits AND DEFF update the new one:

-Get rid of that heavy brow making her scold

The end.

Yes the reactions to the original face was recieved very well. Now I see many complaints. Besides it's still not looking asian. It looks like it's sculpted less human. Not a valid excuse.

I loved that original portrait. I thought it was beautiful and sassy.
I don't think the new one is bad, it just doesn't appeal to me.
I think the new one is too similar to the original PF.
I don't find it cohesive to the rest of the line now.

So a quick list of statues that received negative feed back this year that i can recall.

mystique (bait and switch long hair portrait, a lot say included portrait is to masculine) SS does nothing
rogue (same portrait for the most expensive x-women, a lot of dislike for the portrait) SS does nothing
poison ivy (complaints of to muscular and masculine portrait) SS does nothing
batman (complete screw up in costume, too bulky with hunch back) SS does nothing
daredevil (some costume complaints) SS does nothing

psylocke (after full reveal most everyone loves it) SS scraps the head, goes out of their way to make an entirely new portrait.



Time for new management at SS.

Yeah exactly, SS is hustling backwards, went out of their way to make a new portrait that could've been well received if they simply included both. But instead they've divided customers, and have effectively lost sales.

New portrait looks cartoonish. SS is dropping the ball....again.

I wonder if this was also a reaction to them turning her white again in the comics and people found it problematic

Old portrait was stunning, had great hair, and was proportional to her body.

New portait is anorexic, has limp thing hair, too long of a neck, and doesn’t match her body.

Went from an INSTANT BUY to not a chance in hell will I spend the $500+ on this statue. Clearly the logical, statue buying 3% got hosed again
