Her robot mode looks great. Love the head sculpt. Car is a bit goofy looking, but still fun.
Someone pointed out that you can fold the shoulder pylons away, so so that's one way to make Elita-1's profile look different from Minerva's.
Or, IDW Minerva is basically this. The end result is the same, but it seems more likely that IDW were given upcoming designs to use for Minerva (and Knockout) in the Wreckers mini, than Hasbro using the comic as their primary source material.This is basically IDW2 Minerva, who is not a Headmaster.
Yes, that's why I said it would make Elita-1's different from Minerva's, rather than vice versa. It's Minerva's profile that Elita-1 needs to be modified from.Minerva has the Shoulder pylons, its Elita that needs them folded back.
