I presume it's this one.

Have a look at the logo on the Black Thunder IA at top of page as well.
Yes that is a bit steep, same with the blue one this seller has.

New variation for me too. Seems authentic though.
Perhaps a misguided attempt to update the logo.

I say misguided because from a design point of view there are too many competing graphical elements. The gradient bird graphic is quite a dramatic change in itself, but placing the text above it is wrong headed, and then, to "box" it all is strictly amateurish.

Sometimes companies make variations on their logomarks in order to easily identify different points of origin or alternate manufacturing facilities, etc. That's a possibility too.
