    No, this isn't the latest Mosaic. Theallspark member SwiftEagle has reported that the middle finger of both hands on DOTM Deluxe Crankcase has been clipped. This information has also been confirmed by our own El Duque. Has this been done for safety reasons? More than likely it has. There is no word yet if the TakaraTomy version has also been altered in this way. You can see the before and after pictures below.

    Damn it, we've been discussing this in Feedback for days and the news credit is going to go to someone who thinks this is worth a class-action lawsuit? :lol

    How hard is the hand plastic? If it's fairly hard, it's probably safety reasons. If it's soft... maybe they feared the wrath of parent groups over permanent bird-flipping action.

    But wow. It looks like they didn't change the mold, but rather are lopping them off after the fact. Poor guy. :(

    Man, and here I was looking forward to the bird flipping action, pity..

    They could at least have rounded the ends to match the other fingers though, cheese.

    ^ Yeah, much as I think the OP is overreacting, this does hurt my interest in the figure a lot. It's incredibly crude work.

    I've been aware of it for a while. Figured on putting a note on the resources page but not really frontpage worthy IMO.

    BTW, whoever first reported it will get the credit.
