No, this isn't the latest Mosaic. Theallspark member SwiftEagle has reported that the middle finger of both hands on DOTM Deluxe Crankcase has been clipped. This information has also been confirmed by our own El Duque. Has this been done for safety reasons? More than likely it has. There is no word yet if the TakaraTomy version has also been altered in this way. You can see the before and after pictures below.

I think it depends on who is cutting the parts out of the sprue at the time.

The fingers on mine seem fine, but do appear blunted. I thought it might be something to do with the actual design.

Damn, not even a remold. Just lopped them phalanges right off (and not evenly either). Guess that's what happens when you're a robo-Predator knock-off via Michael Bay. :roll:

I would have been blissfully ignorant of this had I not seen the stock image more clearly. I didn't even pay attention to it until this thread.

Looked at my Crankcase and it seems like the fingers got lobbed off ad the 3rd knuckle.

Anyways, they may have done it since it's the middle finger. They don't want kids making this guy give Autobots the bird in the middle of battle. :lol:

This may be the one time I buy the Takara version if the fingers aren't lobbed off.

And if they took the time to remold and reassemble all the figures, people would be complaining about the delay.

Can't please anyone it seems.

That's ridiculous. I can't believe they'd just sloppily chop them off like that. One more reason not to buy that figure.

Now that's just sloppy. Does Hasbro even know about this? I mean, come on, Hasbro should be more professional than just have people chopping fingers off of figures like that...

You beat me to it! The fingers look to be soft bendy plastic, which probably won't be a saftey concern. I'm pretty sure it's a decency issue.

Mine are at least clipped to the same length. I didn't notice at first, then it bugged me. To think, I almost posted a thread last week asking if anyone else's Crankcase had broken fingers like mine.

I don't see how it could be a safety issue, because the hands are made of that soft rubbery plastic. I think it's just because it's the middle finger.

I agree, I bet it's a middle finger issue. Some lady in Michigan probably complained so Hasbro did something about it.
