Yes, this one looks good. I wasn't going to bother with a red version... untill now.

the biggest difference I can see is the stabilizers.
I wonder is there is anyway to achieve this effect with the original kit ?
Does resin warp if warmed (gently) ?

Good quality resin can bend when heated.

But it seems like this red phantom has a lot more tails overall than the white phantom. So you couldn't do such a thick 'mane' with the white phantom.

Haaaaaaaaaaaaa !

But ?! The back of the skirt is totally different ! Like on the Silicon Tribe kit !
Now if I want to make a CG Red Phantom I'll have to do some new parts XD
Well I won't bother...

It also has an additionnal part at the back of the feet, some more black lines on the ankle armor, the horns bend towards left and right rather than to backward, it has no different color at the tip of shoulders, and has the super-knight icon (can't remember the name of the knight-grade), and that's all I can notice, I see no difference on the arms or the face/front.
