And now you are asking "what's the difference between a ReaperCon Sophie and a Convention Sophie?". There difference comes from how you can purchase them. ReaperCon Sophies are only available during ReaperCon but online sales are allowed, so anybody can get a ReaperCon Sophie while the convention is going on. The Convention Miniature is a different animal entirely, it is only available to be people that actually attend a convention that Reaper is present at (I'm not sure if that includes PAX or not). So it can only be purchased in person from Reaper. The first rendition of this happened to be not one but two versions of Sophie. The first is the more standard family friendly clothed version (the one included in the Liche Level box set) and the second is the infamous UL or Urban Legend version. The Urban Legend versions are, basically, Sophie naked, or for that matter any Reaper Miniature where the normal version is clothed and a second "naked" version is also created. There are currently three Urban Legend miniatures in the Reaper Line, all of these are larger scale minis (54mm+).
The theme for this year's ReaperCon is the Dark Carnival, naturally Sophie is the Ringmaster (Ringmistress?). Here is the green, sculpted by Derek Schubert. I imagine that a painted version will follow quite quickly from Derek.

The convention mini is one of the now famous (infamous perhaps?) Mouslings sculpted by Gene Van Horne. Gene didn't sculpt this one with greenstuff, but even though its grey we still call it a green. I don't think I want to get on the wrong side of this mousling!
