I agree, the vinty Weequay rules. His expression seems very accurate, he is depicted younger in the original release.
potf2 faded the color of his shirt, from turquoise to light grey.
I only have the vintage version, but wish to collect the other release too
potf2 shows a different interpretation of the character, he is in a ready position, more tensed, while vintage Weequay stands on a more natural and relaxed position (less separated feet)
I think the tvc update will be appreciated in a next wave or design of 60 more figures. It will be a challenge for Hasbro sculptors. They will discuss posseability and likeness (maybe other disposition of his braids, different from the skiff master).
