i want them to keep on using shared parts; it is already part of the character of the line, if u take it out now it will look odd.
having said that, i am not sure why they would push ahead with a compromised version of a figure (since you say you did want new tooling) when you could have just swapped evil lyn for some other female variant or 200x variant, so she would have come later. so what is this evil lyn then? if she's not 200x variant then she just seems to amount to a random mash up of ideas.
if you were adamant that this was the 200x evil lyn and how you wanted it to be, then i'd accept it; but i'm really not happy with a 'in the mean time' figure (you could have given me Artilla!!! *shakes fist at the moon*).
