If there were Niche plushies, what should they look like?

Ok folks, I really have no clue which I find better, so help me decide please ^^
Should we keep the current "fluffy" material for the neck? -> REACT WITH "HAHA" if you prefer this

Or should we switch to this "fur-like" one? (In orange of course) -> REACT WITH "CONFUSED" if you prefer this

Thanks!

I like the longer fur because you can probably stylize it more-- make it poofy if you want. But I also think that it is closer to the Nichelings in the game. Also it looks soft and like you could put your face in it-- speaking of that, what's the scale of these?

Just got some pictures with less perspective so we can actually see the proportions :)
(And one from below)
These pictures made it visible that the front paws are in the air xD
So I think I will request them to be a bit bigger. Same goes for the tail.

Aww, I didn't realize he had toe beans! Though, wouldn't it make more since if his paw pads were black or pink...?

Adam's toe beans. (This is the only image I could find of them :) )

It seems that Nicheling Toe beans are always a few shades darker than their fur.

It looks a lot better there than on the plushie. @Philo, I think the paw pads should be darker (like in the image above) than the highlights (ears, muzzle, etc), almost the same color as the pattern. It looks weird with it being so light.

I did a Photoshop session with our artist Steffi (who paints all the Niche key visuals and made the intro) to send the plushie producers a good picture of what we would like to see changed. We adressed all these points and will give them the list:

Should be changed:
1) The head shape looks a bit squashed and too pointy. We liked the previous version better. Best would be something inbetween the two
2) Change neck fluff material to the the more fur-like one
3) Shape of neck fluff should be a bit longer 
4) Change Mane shape and position, make a bit smaller (was better on the version before)
5) The pads should be brown (same color as stripes)
6) The nose should be drawn a bit slimmer 
7) Make the front paws a bit bigger (make sure they touch the ground)
8. Make the tail a bit bigger 
9) Shape of the action point should be more oval and should have white dot painted on

If possible also:
10) Eyes should be more symmetrical, both same distance to the seams
11) Make stripes on back of head straight
12) Remove the seam on the front paws 
13) Make ears a bit thinner

We have decided to keep the lighter muzzle after also doing a test how it would look without and we also decided to not add ear stripes because it felt like the design gets overloaded with them. Happy to hear some more feedback before I send this off ^^

I'm assuming it will take at least 2-4 months before we can even begin the Kickstarter ^^
(which we will need to do since we have to order at least 500)

The mane from the side kinda looks weird. i don't think Adam would have access to that kind of moisturizer to slick back his mane that well. (plus it doesn't match up with front view)
