    Ok I don't know if I am allowed to do this here, If I am not then I am extremely sorry.

    For my final Statistics project, I am supposed to conduct a survey and acquire data on it, SO me being the Transformers Geek I am, decided to do something transformers related. All I would like to ask is if your Deluxe Cranckase(s) has either:

    -Cut fingers
    -Original Fingers
    -Remolded fingers

    and that's it, I would REALLY appreciate the help. Thanks :)

    might be good to post pics for some people that were out of the loop so they can see remolded versus original. clipped shoud be a no brainer.

    I have two Crankcases: one with the "fuck you" fingers and the other with the "half ass" cut fingers.

    Good luck on your project and please quote me in saying the "fuck you" fingers. Thank you.

    Technically speaking, it's not really a finger. Rather, it appears to be more of a stabbing blade attached between his knuckles kind of like Wolverine's claws. At least, that's how I see it anyway.

    On topic, mine has the original, intact hands.

    One thing you might want to note in your survey is that your chosen sample...denizens of the TFW2005 toy forums...are going to be heavily slanted towards early adopters. My guess is you only have one remold so far because by the time that product got out, most of us already had our figures.

    Of course, another bias is that a few of us were hyper-informed consumers, figured out which packages were likely to be clipped by serial number, and avoided clipped fingers. But I think that's a small number of people, interest in this figure turned out to be relatively short-lived.

    You know, I never thought of it as an Assassins Creed dagger,,, that's neat though

    Thanks:) 

    I'm trying to figure out were would this go :/ haha

    Thanks

    Yeah, In my introduction/conclusion I am stating that a collector is testing this with other collectors data, due to this the results are in a way biased. I forgot about the serial number though O.O I might include that in the conclusion. Thank You for pointing that out though :D

    Mine was clipped :( . On the bright side, the fingers are pretty much equal in length and it's a pretty clean cut. So, could be worse.

    I have the unclipped version but it doesn't matter to me. I don't really like the figure that much.
