Hey all,

I am interested in buying a Medicom RAH Ultraman Hayata figure, I have never bought a figure from this line before.I have found some on-line and I know they are quite pricey. I have heard there was a renewal version made. Does anyone know what the difference (if any) between the two were?

-thanks in advance!

P.S. for clarity sake I mean the human figure of Hayata.

I found these stock photos of each:

and original:

I can see some cosmetic differences, seems like renewal has a clear instead of tinted visor and a better gun sculpt. Original has some other tool I don't recognize. the orange color and paint apps may be different, or it may be lighting I'm not sure.

My main concern is if one has joint problems, or was known for bad paint apps ect, visor tint, and orange hue are not major nit-picks with me. I cant find reviews for either one anywhere.

Oh and the original shows a pic with the helmet off, and it is included in the acessories shot. Renewal does not show this, does that mean it is not removable in the renewal because that would be a deal breaker.

to add to the confusion:

Apparently a fashion doll put out by five star toys, which nowadays seem to specialize in vinyl Kinnikuman (m.u.s.c.l.e men) figures. It's definitely more affordable, and it has the mars gun, but seems less well made...
