    hey folks,

    so i got me a second uncle megatron today.... didn't notice anything weird til i placed the boxes side by side...

    check the first pic - take a look at the area circled in red:
    [​IMG]
    (and the megs seen below the boxes are not the uncle versions, the one on the left is a bootleg, and the one on the right is the initial release of meggy.

    but here's that part enlarged:

    can anyone read that? i'm dying to know what it means, lol.

    as for the inside, the contents are exactly the same. same markings, same everything...

    i thought it may have been stamped on, but nope.. it's part of the artwork and the same text appears on the side of the box..

    any help would greatly be appreciated!! :)

    tis chinese (the large letters) i can only make out a few of the characters...the second is jia meaning house/family and the one following it is nian meaning year. and the last character is shang meaning ontop. and the 3 is a three :)  i'm sure someone else can fill in the rest/read it in its entirety.

    thank you all for helping out :) 

    now to determine if this is a rare variant... cuz none of the uncle megs i've seen has this marking...

    dun dun dun.. the plot thickens.

    but thanks nonetheless (^_^)

    Maybe just a packaging variant depending on which area of the country it was shipped to? It happens in the U.S. sometimes.
