    Mine shipped out today from Baba on eBay. Can’t wait. And am kinda excited about the silver lotto. Lol. Wish we knew what that was exactly.

    No silver accessories thank Odin. I got mine from TFSexperss in China. I used the more expensive shipping option (3 days with DHL) so It got here super quick.
    I will post pics in a wee bit.

    *edit*
    Pics....

    No... those are my fault. I was a bit heavy handed... like BSF... only less like BSF.... you know... cause I didn't break him.

    Is he painted on the black/gray overall body? Or is it molded in that color?

    And thank you for the pictures

    I'll admit I like the blue widows on the toon versions, and I know grey is another color thats difficult to get right, like purple, but the color has some red tint.
    Its starting to feel like mix and match parts for these figures to get the version you want for your collection.

    Yeah XTB really kicked poor MMC out of the park with the face especially. The super dark mouth was a poor choice.
    Man he is really nice. I hope they do some funky retools. A blue one could be cool, maybe even the yellow. And of course Lift Ticket.

    He is pretty sweet. The improved shoulders are nice, but they could have been improved a touch more. Other than that, everything is tight and the added paint is a really, really nice touch.
    Over all this feels better than the first edition.

    To what extent are the shoulders improved?
    How could they have improved even further?
    Do you have any close up shots of the palm/inside of the new hands?

    They are improved as in their outward motion is not hindered by the body. The way they could be better, is that they still make contact with the backpack and can dislodge the backpack. Not a deal breaker but it would have been nice if they had attended to that aspect.

    Thanks. I was hoping the backpack dislodging issue would be corrected but seeing that it isn't plus the fact that there are no optional silver parts included has me leaning towards passing on this v2.
