Modern Marvel: Poe Dameron #1 Joe Quinones Variant

It is not unheard of for a comic to have changes from the time it is solicited to the time it is published.  These differences can be as small as a slight cover modification to an entire story or creative team change.  The Joe Quinones variant (aka BB-8 variant) of Poe Dameron #1 was solicited with a slightly different cover than was used in the solicitation.

On the solicited cover, BB-8's head is leaning back as the droid races away from Poe Dameron and other Resistance pilots.  On the published cover, BB-8's head is leaning forward.  I'm not sure why the cover was changed, but the art modification does accurately reflect BB-8's head placement when he is rolling forward.  In the movie, whenever we see BB-8 rolling forward, his head does come forward, which lends an air of determination on the part of the droid to get where it is going.
