    Yeah, as best as I can tell that's what it is.

    Hard to tell if any other colors are different [original MS-20 vs new MS-18C] without seeing a side-by-side comparison.

    I went ahead and placed a Pre-order - even if he's exactly the same as MS-20 + the updated head [which I already have], this is a good one to add to my 'piddle pile' [a bin of cool, favorite or iconic Legends figures that I let my nieces & nephews play with, take on vacation for photo shoots, pop into my pocket as a work buddy, etc].

    I’m sure it’s been answered in here somewhere but there’s too many pages.
    What’s the little plastic square piece for? Thank you group

    My neighbour was gone for 3 days, so I finally got him.
    Got the Toon version, will make pics later but have to say this is indeed my best MFT figure to date.
    The feel of the material and tolerance on the joints are top notch.
    Was kind a writing MFT off as figures that are very nice for display but not for messing around and that is fine for my display but this give you faith they are going for better quality.
    I do not mind they bumped the price up compared to the older moldels.

    @Dutchy79 I agree, def one their best. Do you have Blitzwing? That's another good one that's up there with Astrotrain and the 3 go pretty good together

    Looks like ShowZ still has both in stock. I'm not sure on their shipping restrictions, or what you'd consider "cheap."
