- Weapon: Double-Barreled Assault Missile Launcher
Here's a pic I took of the two versions. The one with the longer tab is the one with the "defect". The one with the shorter tab is the corrected version. Apparently the longer molded tab (which was supposedly a molding error) was causing the locking tab below it to break on some BB's right after the toy's release. If the locking tab broke, the car's nose would not stay locked after transformation. The shorter tab was supposedly made to reduce the pressure on the locking tab to reduce the chance of breakage. The problem I have is that the longer tab has been on almost every BB made (including all of the two-packs and on the clear window Japanese version), while I rarely, if ever, see the shorter tab version in stores.
