    Don't really care, it is gonna stay in Bot mode, and it is just one of many bots on the shelves. I did pick up a second one with the new numbers just incase I "need" it for $12 on sale, but will probably get rid of it eventually.

    We get occasional sales at a store called Fred Meyers in the Pacific Northwest. Sometimes as much as 50% off and there was the $5 coupon last month.

    Pfff. I got mine today on a sale. I only got 3.01$ off, though. A lousy 27.99 if you ask me.

    You have to watch the sightings boards. We post the sales when someone finds something like this. :)

    I think I got the 88 one. I never realized Hasbro released a version without the number.

    No, the first didn't have the black and white outline. The newer one does.

    Yup. I should have cleaned them out, but space is starting to get somewhat limited. Love Freddies sales.

    I have the original version and I really don't care or understand the big deal about it. Figure looks perfectly fine without the number(s) outlined.

    Outline shmoutline.

    Nah, couldn't care less about such trivial matters. Looks fine to me and is displayed in robot mode anyways.

    Mine is the first version without the outline. Don't care even remotely. If anything, it makes it a little more special as the 'unwanted' version.

    I got the early version, but I don't care about it enough to worry about a little extra detail.

    I'm in the same boat. I don't care about NASCAR at all, so the numbers really don't bother me.

    It really doesn't bother me that much because he's always in bot mode,but I'll probably pick up the newer version eventually just to leave him in vehicle mode.Hopefully they eventually end up on clearance somewhere.

    TT version only has the outlined numbers, IIRC.
