Crankcase Snipped?!

{mosimage}It appears the upcoming Dark of the Moon Deluxe Crankcase has had his middle fingers snipped.  Could this measure be for safety reasons?  It seems likely, no word if the TakaraTomy version will also be altered or not.

You can discuss the news (and speculate as to why there was a change) in SwiftEagle's thread on our forums.  Thanks to SwiftEagle for the news.
