    Damn, I was hoping the Japanese would just be -unmodified altogether-

    Has anyone found an actual point to the giant pincers yet; since they seem a little out of place on Crankcase from pictures (and trailer glimpses)?

    Looking at the shape of cyberverse Crowbar, they seem better fitted to his profile...

    Living in the Netherlands, and got mine two days ago.

    Mine's constantly flipping me off. :D 


    I really like Crank, although I sometimes have problems storing his dreads in SUV mode...

    At this point, we've also had reports of Americans finding unclipped fingers, too. It's becoming apparent that this is a running change that happened -while- stores were ordering for the street date. The clipped one (or possibly a remolded one) will be the more common one in the long run, but next week, there's going to be a lot of people randomly finding clipped and unclipped samples. I think I'll just wait till someone on the board has some confirmed ones to sell for retail price.

    I just got mine yesterday from a Wal-Mart outside Philly and he has the long fingers. The problem though is that he's lose all over. Actually most of the DOTM wave 1's I bought yesterday have the same problem. Going to perform some surgery today.

    Crankcase is pretty neat though and ooze's evil.

    You're a jerk, Mr. OP. I was planning to skip this guy, but now I have to agree with LeTigre. Your pictures make this dude look badass.

    I'm happy for the guys that don't like him. That's an extra $13 or so (retail + tax) they won't be spending. This guy has a spot on my shelves, though.

    Oh hey there. I got this guy Friday and opened him up today. He is pretty awesome. Mine was missing the claw finger though. I can't recommend this guy enough. His transformation is simple yet decent. That face is made of pure awesomesauce.

    Amazing figure, but a bit loose like another member said. I don't like how the back of the SUV doesn't peg or lock in robot mode, but it is nothing serious. I love the leg transformation, it's complex but simple at the same time. I got the cut claw finger as well, but it's no biggy.

    I disliked the dreads and since they got in the way of transformation, I removed both. My con's have a strict no hair policy...

    Did you scream "Get a haircut, you hippie!" before you did it?

    Just opened him. Pretty badass, but mine has the clipped fingers, which sucks. Oh well.

    Got the clipped fingers one too. I have no idea if this would help, but my Crankcase card was barely taped when compared to my other deluxes. It only had tape on one side and the tape even seemed like it was peeled back a bit. Usually my deluxes have tape on both sides and on the bottom. Maybe the "middle finger" Crankcases are more heavily taped ot the card? I dunno.

    Got a replacement for my broken one today, fingers clipped(though much better than my previous one) and Dreads are stuck on the joint but I'll live with it, an exceptional figure other than those small qualms.

    mine has clipped fingers which really look like crap. I'd be able to deal with it, but he's also got some annoyingly loose joints and the plastic feels kinda cheap.

    If he had tight joints Crankcase would be really fantastic.

    It probably wouldnt be hard for someone who got an unclipped one to find someone to cast it
