Got an email from BBTS saying they had to cancel my preorder.
Hi- Our distributor has just informed us that this item will not be imported due to low orders, and as a result they will not be able to fill our orders. We apologize for the inconvenience. We have cancelled all preorders and removed the item from our site.
Thanks for the pics Rizuan. The gold paints were on the first version as well. What they did change was the red parts on the phoenix. It seems metallic now as compared to the bare unpainted red plastic on the first version. Nice but not enough to make me buy another one (but I have to say I really did enjoy the RaijinOh more than the older GGG Brave Gokin releases back then, the God RaijinOh... not so much. )
Whoops, sorry for the late reply Kamenrider, I don't know if there are any improvements on this one but I'd still go for the one with the dragon for form GodRaijinoh. Just remember to trim down the dragon's leg connectors to avoid breaking the connection joint (the joint connecting the legs to the groin was too big and tend to break unless you shave them down first, try to look up the old review I posted about this)
Mamoru, the Brave 28 Raijinoh is out but I have no idea what's the difference with the Asia exclusive version
