Did your Crankcase lose a few fingers? Afraid to buy the figure because of the reported damage? Worry no more! Fellow Seibertron.com member Galvatron X has done the legwork to assemble a list of product codes and the likelihood that Crankcase is damaged.

Galvatron X wrote:Because I'm a nerd, I've tallied up all the codes and "finger status" for Crankcase. These are from my own purchases, Seibertron posts and from another site. Nothing statistically definite, just a running total. 03651 looks pretty good. I've opened 2 now with that number and the fingers are intact.

Happy hunting, and post your codes and results (Intact, Cut) here!


03651 - 7 Intact, 0 Cut
10131 - 4 Intact, 0 Cut (2 in Canada)
10191 - 1 Intact (Scotland)
10531 - 3 Intact, 1 Cut
10561 - 4 Intact, 2 Cut
10601 - 3 Intact, 14 Cut
10801 - 0 Intact, 1 Cut


While it appears the product code will help you select an undamaged Crankcase, the codes cannot be taken as a guarantee. Good luck and good hunting!

Mine was code 10531. The middle fingers were both clipped. I think this was done on purpose probally because they didnt have time to create a new mold and wanted the fingers to be proportioned. The long finger was probally an error in the mold. Or maybe its just the american version being politically correct. (F***in Bastards) What do you want for $9.99 ???

I only bought this guy cause he is a blatant homage to the Predator. Thats gangsta. :CON:

Bush leauge if you ask me.. I didn't even notice anything until I read this thread.. Ole Boys whole hand is lopped off..Come on, it's not like hasbro hasn't found more ingenious ways to give us the finger right?

I got mine at a San antonio traget 10601.. Only his thumb survived...

I grabbed the last 10601 from target ne ohio and from the top down view it looks like the finger is still intact. Can anyone else confirm you can see it looking from the top of the packaging?

Found one 03651 Crankcase out of about a dozen of them at Walmart today. All the rest were 10601. Opened it up and am super happy about my new spiky fingered Crankcase.

This is in Manassas, VA.

Not sure how that would be possible considering his hands are tucked deep between his arms and body, unless you can see through his plastic paneling, which you can't.

Also wanted to mention that the unclipped one I opened today was waaaay less floppy than the clipped one I bought on release day.

That's great! That's why I've been putting all this together.

Yeah, 03651 seems like the best bet so far!

I say if it's cut, then return it as damaged.

Reporting in from Albany, NY

10601 Longer two fingers are clipped, rather neatly on mine. SO not going to bother buying another.

If you look close enough you can barely see them, but I don't think you'll be able to make out if they've been clipped or not.

I'd like to thank Galvatron for doing all this detective work. You've helped a lot of people out.
