Tamashii Nations updated their Instagram account today with what many purport to be a re-issue of their long out of production “Frieza” figure. While the figure does look extremely similar to the original release, many believe this post to be a teaser of an updated version due to the purple paint on the shoulders, correcting what many felt was a glaring flaw in the original release:
The most convincing piece of evidence is in the text of Tamashii Nations’ post:

Where my questions lay, are as to whether or not this figure is going to be for sale at New York Comic-Con, or if it will simply be making its debut at the show. If it is for sale at NYCC 2017, will it be New York Comic-Con’s first Dragon Ball SH Figuarts exclusive? It looks like we will have to wait until the show to find out..
Are you excited to finally see this rare figure re-issued? Are you angry because it may affect the value of the original figure? Sound off in the comments below!
