Interesting... I was just about to say the same thing, with regards to this being an old promo-shot that they re-used.
I wonder how come Walt didn't draw a new pic...? If they asked him permission to use this one and all. ( or maybe they didn't have to ask him, since it's already been used in the 80's...)
Anyways, excellent work on the wind in the background there. That stuff takes a lot of time to get just right.
