    (possible) Heads up for those looking for MP01 instead of MP04....

    As some of you may recall, the MP01 re-release in Japan was shelved, but it *was* apparently to be re-released in Hong
    Kong.

    Just got a mail from one of my contacts which suggests it *has* just been re-released there.

    The price mentioned was the same as the original price, so i assume it's new stock....

    I'll attempt to clarify for sure.

    EDIT: Source got back to me, he confirmed it IS the re-release version.

    I'd be interested in seeing pics of the package to compare to the original.

    It seems there's no difference in the packaging whatsoever.

    The pictures i was sent look no different. and i was told even the date on the box is the same.

    That said he did assure me it *is* the re-release, and he's proven a reilable source in the past.

    Got a similar mail from Toyspark yesterday saying that he had the re-release in stock.

    What kind of re-release has the same date on the box?
    I don't understand what marketing strategy they are following here, re-releasing it in HK but not anywhere else especially when it's gonna be included in mp-4?

    Still think its bogus.
