    The clips look unused in truck mode and there are no pegs on the pecs, so I don't see another use for them.

    A while back Lukelbs posted some pictures of Challenger and the Nemesis version. You can see how the Nemesis version has metallic paint for the flames (and maybe the black too? Can't tell) along with the new head sculpt that appears to more closely match the CGI model, whereas the red & blue is flat gloss on the normal Challenger, and the head sculpt is different.

    Looks like it CAN be stored on those clips there but not well enough to close the chest. I'm gonna see if there's enough room to put the staff in headfirst. Maybe it'll close then.

    Cool detail. Does it rattle around at all or is it secure when you close the chest? Mine is posed on the shelf now and I don't wanna disturb it.

    Well can't say it rattles but also it is not a rock hard grab. To place or remove it, you have to unplug the whole chest. (At least i had to with my big fingers)

    I was almost sad I didn't get Nemesis with the new head and Batman Forever paint job, but then I saw only the original had light up eyes and I don't feel so bad.

    Nice. I wasn't sure if I'd seen a purple variant. Any different accessories?

    Wow I didn't even know the new one was out! They look incredible together. Any plans for some mods or crazy pics?

    Yeah, I preordered it and like a week later it shipped, and I received it yesterday. Eventually I'll take pictures and maybe try out some modifications.

    While both looks great, i am glad i got the green destroyer. He just have a cold ruthless air with him.

    Do you have a current favorite of the three? I'm even more excited about how good they're gonna look once you get the new head for the OG Challenger.

    Has anyone sliced off the other tab on the sword handle so that the fingers can properly wrap around?

    So ShowZ have updated the product page for the Challenger reissue with these images:

    8d30e64be8.jpg 891e5d8745.jpg 54069e4a7e.jpg 110d1f0b73.jpg 6f0e664679.jpg e63cf02e82.jpg ce7d664809.jpg

    It seems to have the new head, along with some extra detailing around the waist area, along with a more detailed paint job (though not in the same style as the Nemesis releases, and not sure if it's accurate either). Have they uploaded pictures of someone's custom or do we think that UT have actually gone and delivered on the paint?
