    A quick heads up. Hunter Knight Customs pointed this out, "Has anyone realized that the entire name on swiftwind's box is just a sticker and underneath it says " The original" just as the reissues? What happened to "There will be no reissues after Man-e-faces".... Print error or marketing tactic?"

    I saw that on the Mattys Facebook page last night.

    I went to check my Subscription Swiftwinds box and no sticker. I guess not all the boxes have the original burst and they are just covering the ones that got produced in error with the stickers. Not sure if my extra 11/15 swiftwind will have a sticker or not till I get him on Tuesday.

    It's likely they are still creating the two art files at the same time so they don't have to pay someone to do it later. The factory may have just printed the wrong file so they had to sticker over it all.

    My box have no sticker, so maybe it just a correction.

    "The Original" labels are a waste of time, money and logistics, please eliminate them.

    I agree with JonWes.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I wonder what the quality control will be like on these large stickers. They only get the stickers on the bubble straight about half the time.
