    I bought my Mudflap figure over a month ago, and it is the version with the TRAX license plate. I haven't opened it yet, and just yesterday I found one with the MUDFLAP plate. So of course, I bought that too, with the intention of opening up the first one.

    But then I got thinking... I want to keep one sealed, and I have just assumed the one with the MUDFLAP plate is going to be the rare one. But do I have it wrong, and perhaps I should keep the TRAX variant in it's box?

    I need some help guys. Which one is more common, or rather, which one is the variant being mass produced?

    Thanks!

    If I'm not wrong, TRAX are from the earlier batches while MUDFLAP comes from later ones. Not really sure about it though.

    Trax was first, Mudflap later. Not sure which is more rare. But Mudflap is more sought after I believe

    The Early ones are TRAX, the newer ones are MUDFLAP. Assuming that it was a running change, and that hasbro is going to whore out this line for another year or so, there should be a lot of MUDFLAP ones rolling around the pegs. Unless Hasbro decides to go both ways.

    Open the "mudflap" version. The "trax" one has cheaper quality plastic.

    Some actual data, just for variety!

    Shmax - Results

    Note the "num collected" numbers. So, assuming that each person has correctly selected the proper toy when updating their collection, only about 5% of the collectors tracked in our database have the "Mudflap" Mudflap.
