Now that this international crisis is over, all that’s left to wonder is: what exactly was said, posed, measured and decided upon in the meeting to change this? Was there a formula showing how much butt was too much? Is this focus-tested butt?

UPDATE: The inspiration:

I’m going to be serious and say that this is just all around an improvement.

The new pose has more flare to it, it fits her personality, its not some canned imagine from every Hollywood blockbuster and it still has a sexy/playful side to it.

I dunno, when I look at the new pose I really do believe Blizzards response of “we were going to change it already.”
