And here is the one with the new Elf minifig in the pic provided by Heir of Black Falcon.
If all else fails, I know a certain customizer that has 2 different versions available..... just saying
I believe the Chinese facilities have their own versions of molds that are different than the "standard" ones. So if we see bows coming out in normal sets, they'll probably be just like they always were. But if we see bows coming out in Chinese sets (minifigs, magnets, collector sets, etc), then we might very well see the new design.
The image of the bow you've posted actually looks like the one produced with the Robin Hood figure from the Series 1 collectible minifigures.
@Quickblade: Yes, I knew about BF and loved their products, I'm even a forums member, but that would still keep new KFOLs away from the experience of arming minifigs with bows, as most do not know about BF, and most of those who do know have parents who think it's a rip-off in one form or another.
