    I have two Downshifts that both came to me MOSC. One I picked up at a PA Walmart, the other was shipped from an Ebay seller. I just got the Ebay one today.

    Anyway, they're different. You know the silver paint app underneath of the car towards the front of the hood? The one I picked up at Walmart has a paint app with extensions that reach the left and right edges of the underside of the car, and the Ebay downshift has a paint app that's just a silver square that doesn't reach the right and left edges.

    Anybody else notice this? What version is the "current" version being released now?

    I'll post a pic soon.

    Mine is as the one you picked up at Wal-Mart, if I understand you correctly.

    I have the one that kenm2474 has. Either way it's still a cool figure.

    All examples of Downshift that I've seen so far have the little silver 'wings' on either side of the square on the underside of the chest.

    (all bought at stores)

    Mine has the paint going to the sides of the green piece. Sounds more like a QC thing than a real variant.
