    this is the first glimpse we've ever gotten of the hasbro packaging or the existance of a hasbro leadfoot outside of stolen chinese samples

    where in the fuck did this come from and how did this random guy from Massachusetts get ahold of one

    though it is very interesting that twin twist is now topspin

    Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrghhhhhhhhh!

    I'm still kicking myself for passing up a Leadfoot test shot last summer, got the Takara one, but it's not quite the same.


    Package says DOTM on the top, so i doubt this was made any time recently.


    If Topspin was actually repainted, this thing might have had better prospects.

    As it stands, i think it's still done.

    Please somehow be like the GI Joe Target Exclusives that Ross got a couple years ago. I have the Takara version, and am happy with it, but I would love to have a couple of these to go with it.

    This thing was meant to be on the shelves 6 months ago at the latest, and this is the first one we've ever seen.

    Odds are this thing is done.

    What made it $300? The packaging? I always throw it out, unless it's a leader. Leadfoot himself isn't worth that much.
    Whoever bought it must of been really desperate.

    Are you serious?

    Before you edited your post, you said we'd never seen it before, which answers the question, you asked, that i highlighted.

    Whoa, where did this come from? Six months later we finally see it in packaging, does that mean there's a handfull of packaged samples out there or something I wonder?

    I think its hella cool for the sake of being an oddity, but toy wise... I can understand why this didn't go mainstream. Like, I've always thought the HA Leadfoot kicked the cans outa the deluxe to begin with, and then we ended up getting at least 2 versions of the single packed deluxe Topspin (the armored one I think looks better in itself), so I dunno.

    On the other hand, I can see Canadian Tire & whatnot doing decently with these being sold as part of a Nascar promo, especially around an event of fathers day, but mass market toy section stuff, not so much. :(

    Cool thanks for the info.

    If anyone has the Japanese one you could get these for $9.

    Since storage eats into profits, i might guess Hasbro don't generally put things into actual production runs unless they're already ordered??




    Oddly, it's been suggested that whilst the Takara one lacks sponsor logos, it's actually painted red, as opposed to the red molding on what was to be the Hasbro version.
