Hm, I’d have preferred the ‘95 suit (with swap-out elbow spike arms!).

But this one does look pretty cool. I still kinda regret not getting the ‘96 version.

I figured out what is wrong with it, he doesn't look mean enough.

Yeah, the face (maybe just the eyes, even) don’t look fierce enough.

EDIT:
Comparing it to a few screenshots, two things stood out to me. The nose of the figure is too “upturned” making it look more cute and less sinister. The pupils on the eyes are pointed forward towards the front corner of the eye instead of being centered in the eye, which also somehow makes it look more cute and less mean.

Both things are VERY subtle, but they somehow have enough impact to create a rather noticeable difference in the “meanness” of his appearance.
