    Are the shoulders different? Looks like movable pads instead of molded ones.
    If that's the case, it's definitely an upgrade.
    Like the gun as well.

    Damn that's gorgeous. Don't know if I can justify the purchase though. Already have the original and the diecast KO version.

    Awesome!
    The paint and detailing really make this mold pop. Always was a fan of the Evasion mold, and with the new sculpting and paint, this is easily the only BB movie figure I will get.
    I just hope it's released stateside as well, with just as much paint and detailing. If not, I may even import it I like it that much.
    That's saying something since I dislike the SS line.

    811165D1-15C5-4192-822C-F72E64A38BC0.jpeg Ok from what I can tell he’s gots a new head with a rotating mouth new shoulders and lower arms and hands looks like a new part of the upper thighs and wheels and something on his back to accommodate his new gun.

    Well, I never got the original and I don't particularly trust KO's, so I guess I can justify the purchase. ...Though I'm wondering if this is going to be a Takara exclusive.

    Also looks like the hands aren't blocked by a piece of plastic like on the original mold.
    This thing is getting better and better by the minute!
