So the tail bands may be a technical need.
This is a really good point. Though I can't help but think there could have been something less weird than those bands. Hot pink tail sock?

I somehow think this would be chucked off the drawing board, but it's got it's own merits.

Wait, it's out? Already?

Why did I think it was a November release?
