I would argue they should have gotten rid of the holster, given the original Kenner toy had no belt nor a holster of any kind. The colors of the 2021 redeco are pretty good - the eyes are bluish (rather than purple like the movie), the skin seems a little brighter, and the lime green outfit is close enough. The Black Series mold doesn't have knee-high boots like Kenner's figure did back in the day, but you do get the dark green paint around the wrists and elbows. Hasbro opted to leave out the painted white eye reflections of the Kenner original, which I was going to complain about - but the glossy finish on the eyes is so good, I think they made the right call.
If you can find this figure at a fair price (or if Amazon reruns it) you should absolutely buy one. I love that they made the hips so he can sit, and he seems like the kind of figure that should be able to hang out with Jaxxon. Kenner's weird 1979 paint jobs were a hoot, and I am happy they brought them back for 2021.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Amazon.
