Would've been neat to see how the one on the right might have developed, but overall I've always loved the final design, which is much closer to the one on the left. For one thing, the "side on" and slightly elevated angle on the traditional "gun up" Bond pose is a cool variation on the tried-and-true.

Either way, thank Heaven they dropped the "Rhoda"-style head scarf.

Interesting to see the starship enterprise passing by on a Bond poster…

The one on the right reminded me that, for all of Bond's efforts to try and save the world and prevent a nuclear holocaust, this is the only Bond film in which two nuclear bombs are actually detonated, the very thing that Blofeld was threatening to do in Thunderball, and Bond made it happen!
I'd love to read the report he put on M's desk the next day.
