Unexpected changes can be frustrating.

In this case, I would be far happier with the actual meeples than the proposed ones.

If these were being used as meeples, there might be some merit to the broader (though much less refined) base of the actual model. However, these are merely counters that will never need to stand up. On top of that, the other details are completely lost as well. In a blind test, I wonder how many people could even guess what the finished meeple is supposed to be. I would wager that "erupting volcano" would have more votes than "maiden."
