    Are you referring to the metallic one, or is there another one coming out after it? Or is this is the 2nd release of the metallic one? I'm a little confused as the metallic one appears to be available on some Chinese sites, but it's still a ways out on American sites.

    Yes. Do not grip Vortex by the turbines on the sides of the hood near his propeller. They are done very much in the style of Toyworld's Constructor, meaning that they are short, cheap screws which don't properly hold pieces together and if you apply much pressure at all while gripping him to stabilize him, you will break them.

    It's the piece I highlighted, but they're on both sides. A reviewer I saw also broke his doing the exact same thing as me: I was trying to disconnect the horrible tabs on the top of the helo cab and they are awful. They became so stuck that I needed to pry them out with a tool and in doing so, the moment I grabbed the figure to stabilize it, pieces started coming off.

    So, it's really two problems with that figure which seemed to be somewhat prevalent.

    Swindle comes undone quite quickly as he doesn't tab in as nicely as Brawl to the Bruticus knee joint. This goes for all versions, but the first release is the worst.

    I think he's referring to the next reissue. I know I contacted ShowZ to ask if they would be getting anymore of the metallic or if there would be a reissue that preorders will go up for and they said info will be available in the near future and Zeta is making changes to it. I think hes confused with the next month release though. All I mentioned before was that I only contacted ShowZ about this because TF Source has preorders that have a July release, but there is no way they are the revised one.

    Left is toy colored and the right is more toon color inspired with a new head and it has some minor modifications to improve stability.

    Left is Armageddon, right is Bruticon. There's also a metallic version of Bruticon.

    Damn, I even wrote Armageddon first before editing it. Don't know why my brain decided to do a backflip.

    Zeta has re-released a bunch of figures, and I sure hope they release ZA-07.

    According to ShowZ it is definitely coming with word from Zeta that they've made improvements. So a ZA-07 reissue is in the works just without a date for now. I asked them about it last month and that's what they said about it. I sent a message to Zeta and their response was "Please take note, I do not have the details", whatever that means.

    I’m always debating whether or not to get this guy, but I’m definitely interested to see what they do with the update.
