    ShowZ currently has these pictures listed for Dragoon both on Facebook for the 2nd batch and on their site. It looks to me like the paint has been updated? Could they just be using a repaint to advertise the figure or will there be some updates to the paint apps on this guy?

    I've inquired with them directly and am currently awaiting their reply.

    It's a custom paint job.
    e-tailers are shameless when it comes to stuff like that

    UT should not release an "improved" version too soon... If they want to sell a weathered version, then it should be priced higher than the original in order to avoid criticism from the customers who bought the first release. I wouldn't mind a better version (from UT or KO) in the future with more ratchets and paint.

    They would still have criticism because it would cost more and should have been weathered to begin with.

    That's what I was figuring, but I was slightly hopeful that it was an updated version haha

    The thing I like about ShowZ that I don't know if others do also, is that if you've placed your deposit and then the price goes up, you're already locked at the lower price. I'm saving about $20 on LS-13 because I dropped a whole $2.00 back when it was first listed.

    Very true. I've saved quite a few pennies doing the same.

    Yes I've heard this happens a lot. Many of them simply just don't show up after CNY. Source: I design stuff that gets made in factories and the production people have mentioned this happens.
    Megalopolis Toys used my pic of my own custom SS38 Optimus from my instagram to advertise that they had the figure in stock. I had to message them telling them their customers were gonna be disappointed when it didn't come looking like my custom :p  And also not to use my pics without permission!

    On hand it feels good. The joint, weight, articulation. Only the mold details is not much, made the paint apps look too plain. Definitely need weathering on it.

    overall good toy as usual from UT

    Oh man! I guess that's a compliment to you though! What was their response when you contacted them?

    They took it down and apologized, but it took them a couple weeks. Overall I took it as a complement!

    This may sound blasphemous but I like his "clean" look.
    It's not screen accurate but it's pretty awesome as is.
    Besides I don't really have the skill, time and patience to customize it. I may buy an updated second version.
    Don't mind owning two copies of this incredible mold.

    I think that's actually a custom Rendsora V1
