So heres what I learned from my sources. The MP-01B's that are on the market now are for the Chinese market. Now when I say Chinese market I dont mean KO's! They are legit products meant for chinese buyers. Supposedly the plaque is also exclusive to Chinese market only. When the Japanese market MP-01B hits (which _may_ be January) it will include a comic. So thats what I heard. Heres to hoping the japanese market run address the waist assembly issue, or is it not that common?
