    Because Bandai cut everybody who ordered it off at the knees by announcing a 2.0 right before they shipped. Now figures that could probably use a reissue because they're not popular enough for Bandai to invest in new tooling won't get one. Medicom pulled that asshattery with their Wonder Woman too, _twice_, and they'd have to do Lina Inverse before I'd ever touch another MAFEX solicitation.

    All in all a pretty good figure. Comes with 2 heads so you can put one on your SSJ Vegeta (new version) for a powered down alternative.

    Does this new Vegeta feel more sturdy in hand compared to previous releases? I heard starting with battle damaged Goku, the DBZ Figuarts since have been substantially more solid and sturdy compared to previous figures.

    Does anyone have both versions of Vegeta? I'm curious if Vegeta 2.0 is any different than the first one (besides being more sturdy). I saw him available at SDCC, but couldn't justify buying him if he is the same figure.

    I got it yesterday, Aside from the details on the Scouter I cant find anything about this that made it necessary. If anything the first release had better paint and details.

    Looks like the lasso is actually just premolded with two looks. Still better than what anyone else offered. It's amazing that the different makers don't do more for her most well known accessory. I'd love to see an actual threaded lasso with a wire inside it like it seemed this could be in the early pics. This goes against almost all my collecting habits but I might end up ordering one of these just because it's probably the best WW figure we'll see in a while.

    It's not the likeness of Gal Gadot I was hoping for, but I'll probably still order it.

    Does the 2.0's head hold the scouter better than the first one? I had the SDCC version of the first mold and remember having the damndest time getting the scouter to stay without falling out.

    Still waiting for BBTS to drop Padme into my Pile of Loot. Anakin has been waiting a long time for her in there.

    Thanks! Looks like they changed his a bit. Yeah, can't justify rebuying him.

    I might get WW & Batman & Aquaman. But I also said I'd get some Avengers too and that never happened. Just Cap laying in a bin somewhere.

    Mine's not here yet but minus the details (shading) i already like the new one more. if only because his legs appear to not be loose.

    The new head looks much better than the old one. It looks more like Vegeta.

    For me, i prefer the 1st release head & facial expression, more cartoon accurate in terms of Saiyan Saga cartoon series.
