Formania V Sazabi & Formania EX Sazabi Bust Comparison

I wanted to share some photos of the Formania V Sazabi and the Formania EX Sazabi. These busts are figures, straight from the box, no need to paint or detail. The Formania V came out in 2010 and the one with a simple flat red colour scheme. The Formania EX just came out in 2017 and is glossy with more complex colour scheme.

For the most part, other than the colour scheme, they're pretty similar. The newer EX has a lot more metallic details across the bust, but I'm a much bigger fan of the simplistic scheme and colour choices of the original. Both kits have parts that come off to display some of the inner frame. The head opens on each to reveal the cockpit enclosed within. 

Both busts come with a maintenance vehicle, each with different markings, but most importantly the EX's vehicle has a flexible connector to the base vs. a stiff rod that comes with the V. The EX also features two LED spotlights (batteries not included) which don't really add much IMHO. If you have any questions or would like photos of specific parts let me know! (Pictures below are in no particular order because I'm being lazy)
