At first I thought this was just a re-skin and was told there was no difference betweeen this model and the 1st, but I bought it anyway because it looked really good and when I compared it to the 1st Tombstone : it definitely has more power! You can hear a difference between the two. Tombstone 2.0 has a much more powerful spinner and when doing my tests, was able to knock out all of the other Battlebots pieces off. Don’t get the old Tombstone and Witch Doctor. Get the 2.0!
