I appreciate the side by side pics. I pulled out my old Tigra to see if I'm actually committed to my pre-order. While I do like the paint detailing on the nails and belt on the old one, her joints are pretty bad. The figure is also kind of lanky. I'm definitely going with the new one. I may paint her finger and toe nails though.

People can bash the color scheme on this figure but to say you're sticking with the outdated inferior decade old version is laughable. Bout 97% of Hasbro's redos have blown the original TB or early Hasbro versions outta the water! Only 3 TB figs that imo, Still stand the test of time are Rhino, Lizard & Green Goblin.

Well this is some neon, retina-burning orange, to be sure.  Even with all the reviews I hoped it wouldn't be quite this bad. Gotta wonder, how noone said "hey let's tone that down a bit".  Sure, people are gonna get tired of hearing us rag on this, but her tiger fur is her distinguishing feature, so its important to get it right. Few tads lighter, and a bit of shading, and she'd be perfect. Stripes look very good. Instead of too much paint on the rest of her, they didn't color the claws at all.

The heads she comes with are ok but frankly neither one says "Tigra" to me. I like the color on the eyes, though. Also like the color on the bikini (which is molded on, nice). She's usually in blue but I think if they did that with this paint scheme, it would just look cartoonish. The fangs on the belt look great- they accent without overwhelming. The tiger amulet looks cheap compared to the 2009 version. Despite the drawbacks, she's pinless, has double elbows with swivel biceps and you just cant beat that.

I doubt Hasbro will be able to ever do a figure with such intricate paint job. 

Why not?? Look what they did with Psycho-Man, and who knows how many others. Its a matter of attention to detail, and they've demonstrated time and again they can do it...they just don't ( all the time).

Today I got the Barbecue GI Joe. The orange used on his outfit would've been great for Tigra as well.
