Looks good, except for the gold mask. Does anyone know if its still a Russia and Amazon UK pre-order exclusive or it applies to all premium edition pre-orders now?

Pic that i posted is from EB Games. One of the biggest Australian retailers.
I think that skin is not available everywhere tho. But i could be wrong.

Her makeup isn't nearly as striking as the OP render, and tbe gold on her mask is an eyesore. I was really excited for that skin too.
I'm sure you'll be able to switch the mask for something else.
Yeah the mask is one of Skarlet's gears. You can swap it out if you want to.
Another thing about this, I'm pretty sure it's called the Kold War "Pack" because it's gonna be the skin plus the gears associated with it, thus the skin + gears pack.

That's what I was starting to think as well, that the "7 skins + 7 gear sets" means the 7 gear sets are tailor-made to fit those exact skins. Though of course you're free to mix-and-match them however you like with the rest of your collection.

But then I looked at Kano's Brazilian skin.



Compare the face plate and the heart, they're identical.

So a few things are possible here. Theory rant incoming.

Maybe the Brazilian skin is only showing the SKIN, with the complementary gear pieces taken off and replaced by defaults. Seems like an odd decision to advertise a new skin by basically removing half of the skin, but I guess it's possible. Orrr maayybe some of the special skins don't actually have complementary gear pieces. Which itself leads to two possibilities -- if this Kano skin is one of the 7 you get with the Premium Edition, then that means some gear sets might be completely separate and not made with a particular skin in mind. Or if this skin is NOT one of the 7, then... that makes more sense, it's "just" a skin with no gear. Although Skarlet's is also a country-exclusive, and obviously DOES come with complementary gear.

So, hmm.

In all I'm kinda left with more questions than when I started trying to figure this out.

Maybe the Brazil Kano gears weren't finished when they revealed it? Kano's primary design itself was incomplete during that reveal and in the render you posted, he's lacking tattoos in one of his arms and the chest hair.
I'm very sure that's how it's gonna go, 7 skins and 7 accompanying gear sets for them. And I really doubt either of the regional skins are in the Kombat Pack.

I'm almost positive that this skin will be in a pack and I'm sure they will capitalize off gear sets. With the customization I'm willing to say this could easily be the best skin in the game.
I hope it's available to all for a price or free!
 
Looks great. I was tempted to go for this, but Amazon is so much more expensive than the place I usually buy from.
