Default Euro bubble Shockblast, Soundwave and LoC... Hot Shot?

For those who don't know, we already found out that Shockblast (as well as Swindle) is a repackage intended for the European market (multi-lingual endflap). He is probably not going to flood American shelves again.

Note that the name is just on a small cardboard insert. Maybe the one that says "Excellion" wasn't finished so they used a Hot Shot one for the packaging sample.

I know. I guess he and Shockblast are intended for the Argos restocks.

European Crosswise (hexalingual packaging, photo of toy instead of box artwork)

And the Drag Race Pack again... but a packaging variant? Hot Shot packaged upside down?

you would think to make the hot shot homiage cmplete the would have used clear yellow, or even olid yellow colored 'wings' for the dyber key power to make it seem more like hotrod

Blue breaks up the monotony of orange, red and yellow.

It's called "defacing".

Intentionally damaging test shots in order to make them unattractive to potential buyers.
