I like the variety. We're already buying what are essentially the same few action figures over and over, month after month, with different armor and heads. The ladies' face sculpts are always great, but they are all very similiar-- classically beautiful. Marlena's has some character to it. Same goes for Jitsu. He looks grizzled. I even like the more cartoony interpretations (clawful). One of my most anticipated characters is Plundor, though I know I'm in the minority on that one.
Just my two cents. I can understand a desire for consistence as well. It drives me nuts that many of the most beloved characters suffer from design flaws because they came out earlier in the line. The
weak ankles, bobble heads, reversed fore-arms and stiffer clothes and loin clothes that hindered articulation---while newer, more obscure characters have zero QC issues (FFM!). It also still bugs me that
girls don't get an ab crunch. Females can bend at the waste-- that's not just a guy thing!
