CyanogenMod's new mascot gets tweaks and a new name

CyanogenMod's new mascot gets tweaks and a new name
A couple days ago we told you that Team Douche had come to a decision and chosen a new mascot to represent CyanogenMod. At the time, the Team had said that the name (then rAndy) wasn't official, but it seems that the actual mascot itself wasn't quite official either. Now, Team Douche has unveiled the final version (and name) for the new CM mascot. 

CyanogenMod's new mascot gets tweaks and a new name
Its name is Cid, which is short for CyanogenMod ID. Cid has become something of an amalgamation of the two original designs by Caio Alves. Gone are the wrench hands, and the overall figure has "grown up" a bit from the relatively childlike proportions of the originals. The eyes have been enlarged and Cid was given a mouth in order to be able to show emotions (in this introduction Cid does look a little mischievous.) 

The Team wanted to find a unique mascot which would symbolize CyanogenMod while distancing it from the stock Android mascot. Cid can certainly do that. What do you guys think of the changes?

The mascot in the original design didn't have the antennas on its head, anyway both designs are really good

I liked the wrench hands personally. This one just reminds me of the bastard offspring of an unhappy Teletubby and a Blockhead from Gumby. Doesn't really matter since the CyanogenMod mascot is only ever present on the boot screen, unless they are incorporating further UI tweaks to compliment Cid into regular usage. Since the Android Mar, uhh, Google Play Store already recognizes multiple devices I'd like it if I could use something like Androidify (but with more bells and whistles) to incorporate my own choice of mascot a little easier. I've got an old rooted Droid Eris recognized as Twiki (Buck Rogers) and now my Droid Razr Maxx recognized as Maximilian (The Black Hole). I'd like to be able to do something with that...

Cool artwork! Effective yet simple graphic look. What happened to the wrench hands?
