    And for more infos: this AD/mini comic is bigger than the regular mini comics as we know.
    During my last travel at Tokyo I seen two on sale in the Mandarake shop showcase (Shibuya) at 500 JPY each, I traveled many times to Japan and it was the very first time that I was seeing it on sale, very rare.

    Awesome to know.

    I'd love to see a High-Resolution scan of that Cover-Art. There are so many fun details in it. (like the characters flying in background, reminiscent of Rudy's Grayskull-boxart)

    Mine came from the Shibuya shop so they are the ones that you saw. I have been to Japan 30something times toy shopping and have never seen one of these! I am happy for me that you did not buy them !!!

    I wish someone could do a more hi-res scan/photo of the boxart for completion, I don't even see it on the front page encyclopedia area.
    Visit my art page at: http://theblock.deviantart.com/ , if you like my work and have an account there to, feel free to fave or watch me, I could use the street cred !

    Well that too, but I was thinking more like whoever might actually own the physical box, make a detailed scan of the artwork so we can appreciate it like all the Rudy Obrero box-art. Power and Honor, get on it
