    I've just bought Universe Superion and noticed that the nosecone of the Airazor / Air Raid mold has been remolded. The nosecone has well and truly been blunted now, having previously been fairly pointy.

    Its a shame as I don't think it looks as good with the blunt nose. Safety standards again I expect. Considering the mold was first used only 4 years ago its soon considered unsafe!

    That's a drag. Oh well, I can't wait to get the new repaints so I can mix molds and have the best color schemes for the teams.

    this reminds me of the changes made to Blast off in the RiD line when some of them had rounded tips.

    its a shame I'd much rather see a soft rubber used then changing the toy
