    Oh horror! Oh horror of horrors!

    I picked up my MP-8 today and look at this:

    Everything looks swell...

    But... WHAT'S THIS?!

    NOOOOOOO!!!! RAEG! :( 

    More Than Meets Teh Eye?! :cry  This spelling mistake occurs at the front and top of the box.

    The shop which I got mine from got his stock from a Hong Kong supplier and not directly form TakaraTomy in Japan.

    Can anyone verify if the "Japan" boxes also have this spelling mistake?

    What a disappointment! I guess people might think that I am making a mountain out of a molehill but this is TakaraTomy, not a fan project or KO. *sigh*

    EDIT: Both "Hong Kong" and "Japan Versions" have the spelling mistake.

    Oh no, I hope mine isn't like that. Mine is on its way right now from BBTS.

    It beats "The Truth The Eyes Have Met Before" that's on the side of the packaging for Revoltech Megatron. (? It's on the side for someone, I think it's Revoltech Megatron.)

    Are you seriously pissed off?
    I think that is truly teh most hilarious spelling error I've ever seen!
    I almost wonder if it was done on purpoose. :) 

    EDIT: solitudinal, I'm not trying to belittle your purchase. If anything, perhaps it's a minor misprint and actually increases the value, that's been known to happen.

    Not pissed off. Just disappointed. :( 

    But I'm buying it for the toy, not for the box. :lol

    Any idea if yours is "Hong Kong" or "Japan" "version"? I use the inverted commas as there are no known differences other than the supplier origin yet.

    Well, I bought mine at Toys R Us in Awase, Okinawa, so I'm pretty sure it's legit.

    So it seems that both "Hong Kong and Japan Versions" have the spelling error on the box.

    And just for posterity's sake I checked my MP-5, 6, and 7 boxes...they are all correct, so it wasn't a copy/paste error :p

    MP-01 had the same error on his box. This only reinforces that Grimlock is a true fully realized Masterpiece

    Ah yes....cause MP-5, 6, and 7 all have the Decepticon logo on theirs, guess it was a copy/paste error from MP-1!....makes sense!


    One word: Engrish.
