    Interesting. Disregard my comments then! Maybe it was different KOs, because I swear I remember people saying "why didn't they add the shin hinge in?"

    Not yet, which is odd considering all they need to do is just copy the original head sculpt

    They probably also took note of people asking for the DNA shoulders. That do be just hopium from me though lmao. It'd be nice but yeah, fixing the head is a big one.

    They didn't make any announcement about adding the shoulders, but they could surprise us. Even then, not the end of the world for me, but I can see their benefits.

    Head still looks a bit odd, but I appreciate the effort to improve it. That being said, I wished they just cast the ion blaster entirely in black rather than the gunmetal-black combination we have. Their choice to do so, to say the least, is

    oh that looks so much better
    I wonder if I ordered it like a week ago, that means I get the first head, or the reason it's delayed shipping is because of the upgrade head on it
