    A month is the standard window for TTMall stuff, more or less. So it's not really them favoring Black Zarak any more than any other TTMall toy.

    That said, it really is weird that they waited so long for JP Victory Saber sales. On the upside, I imagine any Japanese TF fan would have known about Victory Saber before Takara specifically opened orders and were just sitting on their money waiting. I imagine any harm to the campaign was minimal if any, but it's still far from ideal.

    right? but hey, I'm betting they are prepared. just like, I'm betting they are working on some ARK add-ons

    The real hype for the Ark hasn't truly started. many places are just now starting to get theirs. :)

    I must be the only one that is bothered by the changes in the facesculpt; the chin portrudes more and the lips seem to be less...defined.

    I wonder if it's because one is a render and the other is in plastic

    It looks the same to me, just from a slightly different angle. The chin is the same, it's just more hidden in the second pic.

    I double checked and yeah the chin is the same. I did consider that the angle was playing tricks on me but I don’t know, there’s something that just strikes me as being different (aside from the obvious fact that this is not a render). Something about those lips. Anyway, guess I’ll find out (soon-ish) whether I’ll still be bothered by it.

    I actually love this a lot more than what we got. The gold chrome make its pop and the non-chrome that we're getting looks dull in comparison.

    Admittedly the black and white contrast will work pretty well, although I'm not sure how well Sky Lynx's neck attachements would hold up.
