Sabr, I sincerely appreciate the visual examples (and they speak volumes of your credibility), but you're fixating on the wrong point. My intention was never to argue about the definition of "mold" or "re-tool".
I'm simply stating the obvious: new Waspy is based strongly on old Waspy, and that's surprising, considering how far TF engineering has come in the last 17 YEARS. You can disagree with THIS statement, but so far, no one has actually made comment on the meat of my actual point. The word "re-tool" and "mold" is more interesting, for some reason.
Besides, BH BB is arguably a "new mold" as most of the parts are significantly changed, just as the new Waspy has a similar arrangement of parts, but slightly different shapes than old Waspy. Or maybe you're claiming it's about size: different size = new mold; same size and similar parts = re-tool. From a broad perspective, looking at the actual transformations (and assuming the new Waspy IS the same transformation), I would stretch the word "re-tool" and put it on new Waspy, in order to indicate that the old Waspy was slightly altered to create a new one (while basic engineering has remained the same).
But forget I said anything. It's astounding how much some of you guys care to argue the minutia details of what a term means in the universally exact sense, as though "mold" and "re-tool" are pre-human words that have exact definitions which are never open to interpretation. As I said before, I really don't care all that much, and I don't need opinionated corrections, as the visual "proof" itself IS open to some interpretation. Sort of like how some people will sell an opened product with all the included items/box and call it "new". I don't call that "new", but maybe you do. I'd love to argue about the word "new", but in reality, I'm far more likely to just shop with someone who agrees with my interpretation of "new." Meaning, "let's agree to disagree!"
And for the love of God, you will NOT find me ever using the word "re-tool" or "mold" again, as the inspired-ire/corrections is feeling rather unfriendly.
