    Just saw this , and if it’s true. I do hope they sell the new parts seperately for us who bought the first issue or something along those line. Otherwise moving forward it’s best to not buy any first release from them again . 4E8B244F-9C76-420E-92BA-B7C4E01C98E3.jpeg

    Yeah, if we had to put up with the first wave's shitty QC and then get screwed out of this I'll be pissed. 'Stop buying their stuff' levels of pissed.

    This seems to negate the pre-order bonuses for RT-03 Dragoon/Megs, since he's supposed to come with the new head and a "BIG" preorder item. I'd be less inclined to pre-order their stuff if this is true though.

    Wow.. I mean honestly, I think UT will sell these bonuses separately, if there is enough of a demand for it. I personally don't care so much for movie accuracy. I am a fan of this figure. Not a movie fan

    Not sure whatever Taobao bonus code they are giving us , best to check with your supplier you got it from , but it doesn’t look good for first batch owners ,from what I’m reading on their Weibo so far . Some Google translate from their own post . 9B23A03B-FC38-44A2-B4E0-A0F4755FF3E6.png

    Could it be a miscommunication? Perhaps someone heard about the bonuses for Megs and got confused.

    Ok so I've visited their weibo, what UT actually meant is, they know their mistakes, so they've giving the bonus accessories ("special code" as per google translate) to first batch buyers like us for compensation, & that's the best they can do for us. The bonus accessories are referring to the Merlin staff & Lockdown's dagger. Not any special extra bonus stuff.

    As per UT's weibo, the new head is bonus gift for megatron's preorder.
    But there's a chance those resellers/toy shops might doing their own promotion by including the new head for 2nd batch challenger buyer tho, just like the BB7 Toy Sale Store screenshot above.

    I read it differently , they mentioned those who’ve gotten their R-02 from Taobao could redeem their special gift . I doubt it would be the bonus accessories of Merlin staff and Lockdown’s dagger with us already having it .

    ahh you are right. i didn't read the post, just reading their comments.
    but seems only apply to those buyers who purchased/POed from taobao. :( 

    btw anyone know how to differentiate 1st/2nd batch of challenger? & is the 2nd batch really fixed all the QC issues such as the paints?

    I like the new head. Hopefully the eyes are painted. Don't care for electronics.
    Still there's a lot to improve. Metallic Paint, chrome, proper Gauntlets...QC issues.

    It is, the bonus is for the people who bought the first batch.

    Ah, but only on Taobao? That sucks. Still, it's not as bad as what it seemed like at first.
