I love that secondary head sculpt, she looks amazing with it both in Animation and figure form.  I'm not into Motu but if this figure has right price I might get it for that headsculpt alone.

Why does the Revelation version have less detail and a worse sculpt than the origins version? The whole Revelations line is so hit or miss. There have been some great releases and some not so great.

A matter of taste, IMAO. I like the whole series.

I guess it’s a matter of perspective. The sculpt on the Revelations figure looks excellent to me.

I'm not seeing it, honestly.  It looks to me like the Revelation version has more detailing in almost every regard except the shield.

Well the Masterverse version has no armband raised details, no gauntlet raised detail and simplified chest and skirt filigree, no straps on boots, fewer and less detailed accessories. The shield of the Masterverse version as you mention has none of the more intricate pattern found on the original - it's just a copy of the Stinkor shield which itself is inferior to the Origins sculpt. To my eye it all just looks less crisp and less appealing - yes that is subjective, but the Masterverse sculpts just look sort of smoother, almost melted or like it's a copy of a mold of a copy of a copy and the crisp detail that would convey depth is lost - but the problem isn't that it's a copy it is that whoever designed it made the details muddier, rounder, duller and in my opinion worse. And to me those don't seem like stylistic choices but instead just seem like inferior work to put it bluntly. On some figures the slightly less impressive sculpt is totally outweighed by how cool the concept is and how appealing it looks regardless of some muddy details like the New Eternia Beast Man. So that's why I say it's a mixed bag. There have been some amazing ideas and so-so execution. But it's always harder to do something new than it is to copy the original and just make it slightly better which is all that Origins has to do.
