We first found out about this roughly a month ago at DigiFes, so it's model kit time!
Figure-rise Standard Amplified Dukemon [Special Coating] features the pre-existing Dukemon Amplified model kit mold, but with new & nicer coloring.
The main upgrade to the figure is an upgrade to various colorings, most notably the gold.
We won't be detailing this one heavily, as the actual mold is the same, so it's purely if you like the new colors.
They also tease new full color packaging that is being worked on.
Pre-orders for Figure-rise Standard Amplified Dukemon [Special Coating] open in a bit over 2 hours from the time of this post at Premium Bandai. Pre-orders will be closed at an unspecified time and it costs 8,800 yen. It ships in January 2024.

It looks nice, and certainly better than some early images of it, but it doesn't feel quite as striking visually as the WarGreymon compared to to the original.
A few extra bits...
Premium Bandai Japan is currently harder to access, so a bit extra for those who want to pre-order and not wait to see if there is an international release.
Some intermediaries will want not only want the urls of the items above, but may ask for the product name in Japanese as written on the page. Those names are given above, directly below the pre-order links.
If you want to be sure to nab something...
We've currently pared down the list of intermediaries we list due to some places closing and others becoming iffy in their communication, calling into question their reliability. If you have any stories, positive or negative, about any intermediaries, DM me with them so we can figure out who might be worth adding (or re-adding), since these aren't affiliate links or anything, simply suggested ways to make it easier for fans to nab stuff.
You'll want to contact an intermediary to get these items sent to you. WtW is not affiliated with any, but here are a selection of intermediaries that have worked well for various WtWers and their friends in the past:
You'll want to provide your chosen intermediary with the link to the item. Just copy paste the link to the product pages for what you want and send them a message about it and they'll take care of it after they discuss pricing and their policies with you. The links embedded in the news article for the products are exactly what you'll need to send them.
Some of the intermediaries have a full storefront and may have the item listed, so you may want to check that first.
