    I was wondering the same thing. A lot of pictures these vendors have show the masked version (but they always have that disclaimer about photos) and BBTS is asking nearly $20 more than other stores. I would gladly pay the price domestic if it included the extra goodies but I just have a feeling it won't. It looks like they get some next month, but by then, I feel like there's a chance the ones that DO have the mask will be sold out maybe?

    i'm not sure the box art would indicate which version you'd be getting as i doubt they'd put in the extra trouble/expense to print two versions. they probably printed "option head" to cover themselves and left it at that for packaging for both versions. and if they did go through the trouble and incur the extra production cost, i would think they would put more on the box on the lines of it being the SGC exclusive or something.

    of course i could be completely wrong and they screw us over and release it with the head without the limited numbered card at a later date! :rolleyes:

    That's what I would have figured, but that was the "proof" TFS Express requested (a picture of the "Option Head" on the back of the box) to ensure I was supposed to receive the extra goodies.

    I know TCP has stated their shipment should have the extras. Not sure if any other retailers have said anything.

    @Slagwave
    Thanks for the news!
    TFS-E is ultra reactive, that's great.

    Let's see what I will get, tomorrow...

    awesome, thanks for confirming that from TFS express! great to know if you got the correct packaging and version, as well as if the head/card is missing you can send proof! ;) 

    but sort of silly for TFS express to ask given they have your order on file to know you ordered the SGC version. :rolleyes:

    I remembered the Redwing shipments they and Tfsource got a while back had the coronation extras so I had just assumed they would.

    Mine came from TFs Express with the extra head. Hope Slagwave gets theirs too soon.

    Prettiest Legends ever made, with big bro:

    Went ahead and got Heat Death from The Chosen Prime (along with something else since BBTS keeps delaying) so I'm excited to get it!
    TF Express seems to be sold out so I'm going to pre-order with BBTS and TCP in hopes one of them will get the "Head" Edition. Lol
    Honestly either way, the figures look amazing. The mouthguarded helmet just looks fantastic though.

    The hand is little bigger than the hilt of the Dr Wu's swords.


    Too shinny for me ^^
    But, sorry, didn't seen it.

    Hope you will not have to wait a month to get AZ.

    I’m gunna have to contact TCP again, see if I can confirm whether I’d get the Alt head at this late a date, and then, maybe—probably, place an order.

    Got Heat Death today and I am definitely going to get Absolute Zero as well because I am really enjoying the overall sculpt (plus I love dragons lol).

    I preordered from BBTS and TCP in hopes 1 of them has the alternate head. But if not, I'll still be happy with the figure.
