    Forgive me if this has been posted before...(did a search and found nothing)...

    My question goes more towards the original Ratchet toy...I find some on ebay with and some without the Red Cross symbol...I assume it had to be removed because of copy right issues...so which one is most rare or more valuable...?

    And any info on why/when the change was made...

    I believe the "Red Cross" actually sued for copy right infringment.

    When I got mine, I went for the one that had the cross. I guess just 'cause I liked it better :)
