Interesting read. Personally, I'm all for it. Sure, I'd like to see whoever I like to take part in Smash Bros., but I far prefer no representation if the alternative is misrepresentation. They've already successfully destroyed certain characters by making them out of character in Brawl, so I definitely won't want to see that happen here.
I understand that Brawl terribly misrepresented a lot of characters, but what did they "destroy"? I don't know what you mean by that.

Aside from the fact that Tropical Freeze looks like real gorilla fur, the proportions of the face are off too. It gives DK an even goofier smile. The jaw is less pronounced and the mouth extends way too far to the corners of his face.
The likely scenario with the Mega Man trailer is that the CGI model was designed by a different team than the in-game model was. Brawl's trailers and SSE cutscenes used models that were just about identical to the in-game models, but for this game's trailers and character portraits, they seem to be using models that are more detailed, and in a couple of cases, differently detailed.
I think his in-game model fur is supposed to look "rougher" to suit the setting of a fighting game. I don't mind it.

Ah, nice. I was hoping to see any kind of new information through these daily screenshots. They probably won't show new stages at this point, but they can show any new attack moves (bar Final Smash, which they're probably still keeping as secrets) or new things about existing stages.
It looks more like a stage hazard to me, as opposed to 1P mode boss.
Between classic Mega Man's Wii U model complete with his arsenal and this stage, the Smash Bros. teams really are doing more justice to Mega Man than the current Capcom ever will.

I'm more interested in that spark of light. Is it an accompanying effect, perhaps for the Wii Fit Trainer's smash up+A, or is it something from an off-screen character?
Oh, and the last day's 3DS scrolling stage pretty much confirmed what I suspected earlier: the two Mario stages are actually different sections of the same one. I'll even say Warp Pipes will be used for transportation, since the sky section is obvious moving towards one if you see it in animated fashion.
I really want to see these stages formally introduced.

People are speculating its either a neutral special or a down special, called Sun Salutation, based on the yoga move of the same name, which is how she is posed in the picture. It seems like a pretty reasonable assumption to me.
