    Right then, I was at my local Walmart today hunting down unclipped figner Crankcases for a friend who wants one(And because I want a third.), in any case, in my search I found a Crankcase lot number that had not been brought up before. That being 10851. I thought maybe it was an unclipped Crankcase so bought it, and left the second, since really I didn't know if it was unclipped case or not.

    Once in the car, I opened it up, and started transforming him. At first, I thought he was clipped, as I did not see the nail, but then.. I noticed... Molding! And it dawned on me that this must be a new batch of Crankcases, those with remolded hands, as opposed to the long fingered ones, or clipped finger ones.

    I apologize for the poor quality of the picture, but it was the best I could do.

    Meh. Image isn't working. So here's a link. If someone can tell me of another photo service I can host there.

    I'm still looking for an unclipped one. I've seen a 11121, but I have no idea what that one is.

    It looks better in person, the middle finger looks just like the other fingers now. I still prefer the bird flipping model.

    Cool, now if I decide to get more I can have the long-clawed one as the boss.

    I've seen pictures of the remolded one, and it does look good, but I still prefer the long-fingered ones. Probably because it's "original".

    With that said, I'll still be buying some of the remolded ones...I know I will.

    I wonder what his fingers will look like in the movie?

    Actually if you slow down his and Crowbars transformations in the clip where they smash into IH it becomes quite visible that they have battle spikes coming out above their hands just like two ton 21 does on the Venture Bros.
    That's how all this big spiked finger stuff happened, silly Hasbro please release a HA version with huge spike popping action now.

    I really don't like rubber on the figures, but I didn't wan't a clipped one either (less rubber, less finger to bend). This is nice. After the movie, I hope he get's a voyager with hard hands and pincers. For some reason, the pliability of rubber and me liking things that lock into place really turns me off or rubber-y toys.

    I'll post up a comparrison picture later, at least as best as I can. For some reason the phone I used, depsite giving a clear picture at first when it focused made it look compeltely unfocused when I took the picture.

    So Crankcase with remolded hands are now available? Sweet! I will definitely keep my eye out for it. Beats trying to track down x3 Crankcases that have all of their hands intact.

    I will have to keep my eye on this. Still haven't found a single unclipped one. I don't really care about the long finger per se (granted I do think it looks okay), I just think the clipped one looks like complete crap.

    Nice! I'll give my area time to run through the current stock before trying for a remolded one myself.
