    Hm, I think I'll just wait it out then, just in case. Better to wait for a possible retooled version than risking getting ugly/rushed clipped fingers.

    I found a Uncliped Crankcase at my local Zellers last night...and he was numbered 10131
    also saw on twitter that Vangelus mentioned that his Crankcase was also 10131...and Uncut

    so it's my understanding that any CC with that number should also be intact.

    Found another 10561 today, this one at Walmart.

    Also snipped. Looks like the transition happened midway through whatever batch ended up with that imprint.

    Went to toys r us looking for a lower number imprint, all I could find was 10601. I was sure the fingers would be clipped, but since I did not have one yet, I grabbed him and his fingers were NOT clipped! I have no idea about the codes, but there are definetly 10601's without the mod.

    Just curious - do you mean "03651", or was it indeed "03561"?


    Hmm, very interesting...it makes me wonder how they implemented this change.

    Darn, so a Takara version will be the safest bet for a non-clipped finger? (Crankcase)
    If not Takara, what other online sites might have one that has the all the fingers intact?

    I've been writing them down, but I don't have it in front of me. Let's see how many I can remember:

    These are only from what I've read here and other places. I'm sure there are exceptions with each number!

    BAD

    10601 (It seems there are exceptions, though)
    10561
    10531


    GOOD (So far...)

    03651 (Confirmed 4 times)
    10131 (Europe?)
    10191 (Europe?)

    I'll look at previous posts and add them when I find 'em.

    Whichever one is correct. Don't make fun of dyscalculia.

    I don't see how you can interpret that post as making fun. It looks to me like he is just trying to get the facts straight for the rest of us, as seen in the post below. Thanks for compiling that GR.

    Here's an update.

    These are only from what I've read here and other places. I'm sure there are exceptions with each number!

    10531 - 1 Good, 1 Bad
    03651 - Good. Confirmed at least 6 times.
    10131 - Good. Confirmed twice (Both Canada).
    10801 - Bad.
    10191 - Good. (Scotland)
