The VHS and single packaged versions of Duke (pictured above left) had a flat black finish as opposed to the glossy vest and boots of earlier versions.
Duke (v11) has an entirely new body sculpt. The entire body was re-used to create Duke (v12) (2003), while the head was reused to create Duke (v14).
