    Does anyone know how to tell the MP-1 Waves 1 and 2 apart without opening the box? I picked one up in an auction with MP-3 for a good price, but I want to make sure it's Wave 1 before I open it. Thanks.

    I wouldn't of thought the boxes would be different. The copyright year on the front could be different I guess.

    Did they ever correct the spelling mistake on MP-1's box? ("More than meets TEH Eye")

    The one that I have is misspelled. So if I can find out if the wave 2 is spelled correctly, I'll know what I have. Anyone have a wave 2 MP-01?

    I'm just curious really. I'm going to be selling it, and I'd like to be able to answer the question.

    I just got a message from the original seller, and it is wave 2. So wave 2 still has the "more than meets teh eye".

    Was there any differences or fixes in Wave 1 and 2?

    only the US version had the gun color running change.
