Tiny's new look

How do you like Tiny's new look? In DKBB they changed her from spunky 1960s kid hero to hip and happenin' teen. Personally, I preferred her old look because there seemed to be something inherently comical about her, the way she moved around like she was a character in a sixties teenybopper movie. I bet they did that on purpose. Now her whole angle of being "the kid" among the Kongs and her ability to shrink seem to have been totally forgotten. I'm not fuming mad over the change, I just wish they'd left her design as was.

Which do you like best?

DK64 Tiny FTW.

Small, wearing overalls and skipping like a little girl are SO her.

It fails. "Tiny" is taller than Dixie.

The new look takes away the purpose of her name. So def DK64 Tiny.

QFA.

Her name is symbolistic of her body frame. And the ability to shrink does add to that.

I personally dislike the new look, but I'm not gonna break stuff over it.

I prefer the old one, but I really can't say I have anything against the new one.

The redesign is perfectly logical. It validates Tiny in a series of games where Dixie also returned. And the name.. well, now it's ironic.

The name really won't fly as "ironic" unless she was enormous. If Chunky's name was Tiny, then it'd be ironic.

yeah

it feels like they kinda took away her innocence... now she is just another candy kong, (ie.monkey that looks like a woman... trying to add more sex appeal?(you cant say it doesnt look like they tried, not when all the other kongs look the same[donkey kong, diddy, dixie, etc]) it was weird enough with candy kong, sure DK couldn't have an ugly mug for a girlfriend... but still, shes a monkey for crying out loud!
