    Those are just the same photoshopped promo images we got of the american release.

    Sure it's different?

    Also, that eBay seller doesn't actually have the toy; he's selling 'preorders' that won't be available until August. The picture is just the typical stock photo.

    Pity, there's no "Suck my Popsicle!" bumper sticker...

    Other than that, I prefer the American version.

    Well the picture is of only one side, maybe they decided to put it on the other :)

    I'm sure Reprolabels will take care of that.

    Those are the same photos as these ones.

    Which are the same stock photos used for the Hasbro version.

    Although I've been trying to collect Movie figures of characters who actually appear in the movies, I highly doubt I will get the Ice Cream Truck twins.

    Well if you remember when we first found out about the ice cream twins on walmart.com, the stock photo was pink and white, these are purple and white, maybe that is also a listing for the takara version

    I'm pretty sure they're never going to put that on a mass-release toy. Reprolabels or nothing for something like that.

    Could you post a picture of the "pink" Twins, for comparison?

    compared to this:

    You can tell the Takara Version is a bit darker

    They should also make some stickers of the other "Ice Cream Products" that are on the side of the Ice Cream Truck. There are a bunch more that aren't on the final figure. Check out the pic in the post, you'll see what I mean:

    I believe it's the backgrounds playing tricks.

    Until we get further information, off to Toy Discussion this goes!

    Those are the same photos, just with different hue setting.

    Remember when some of the first stock photos we got of Alternators Optimus Prime had major problems with the hue setting, making him look magenta?
