i like the cartoony, unrealistic marvin more than this one. he's almost too life-like, and seems smug and smarmy. stick with the toon, he's the one we all love.

In case you don't know what I mean by the cartoon version, here's an example:

for all those who are bound to view after me, let's hear your take: which version do you like better?

this cartoon made me smile. I too prefer the older Marvin, but I can see where this one might have a place.

I actually like this Marvin, because of the purpose this representation serves. That smarmy smugness is that of someone who is doing it just for the cameras (which are implied). The cartoonish one you linked to, drew, fits because of the ridiculousness of the situation being presented. Both have their purposes and both serve them well :)
