I noticed there's no evolution like All Around Vision or Uncanny Dodge for Eidolon's, which was something brought up when the Eidolon in question has multiple eyes all around it's body (as part of it's cosmetic look, as it's more of an aberration) and keeps on getting flanked and sneak attacked.
While it's fair that it gets sneak attacked based on the points I invested, I realize that there's no evolution that matches the concept of having multiple eyes. I'm guessing if there was one it would be a 1 or 2 point evolution.

So a few of the Obyrith lords, and maybe Xinivrae and Lynkhab?

I'm intrigued what more obscure ones they are, are they ones that got just a name mentioned before back in 1e, or ones that were name-dropped by Xanxost the Slaad, or did they have write-ups before?
Yeah, I can see where this whole perception of gender issues comes from. The genre of fantasy art has been biased that way from the start. Even though compared to other magazine covers out there Dragon's is typically tamer in terms of sexuality.
But in terms of gratuitous covers, has their ever been one 'sexy cat-fight' cover? Really, I'd want to see one...
But I guess the aim would be to come up with new and interesting ideas for covers. Less Frazetta and Vallejo, who still are quite influential in fantasy art. It's not like those two artists are a bad thing, but everyone doing art like them is. It's a good thing because we're seeing more variety in fantasy art nowadays.
As all of the covers are drawn and painted you can do a lot more than all of those photographed covers. But I guess Dragon is more likely competing against Heavy Metal and White Dwarf which are the ones more likely to be right beside it on the stands, as opposed to Maxim and FHM.
