I posted this over at yak's fb page, I finally figured out what's not right - his torso is too small for the rest of his body. Compared to the vintage one, his head sits on TOP of his shoulders just like the costumed characters. The new (still very awesome) version has the head situated more on the top front of his chest. I think the torso needs to be twice as big and repositioning his head on top of his shoulders should then make him 100% perfect!
But that's my humble opinion/observation.
