I have a very intruiging mystery I'm hoping some Hasbro fanatics/experts can help me with. :D
I purchased a Hasbro Heracross beanie after LONG last from pikabulbachu from Germany.
After it wasn't arriving for some time, I grew worried it got lost in the mail, and ANOTHER Habro Heracross popped up in shuuichi_chan 's sales so out of sheer panic I purchased hers as well. I also figured if I had two they could be brothers, since that's what I've got going on with my US and Japanese Paki Paki Heras.
So long story short the Heracross from Pikabulba arrived from Germany the other day and I noticed something strange....
First of all he FELT quite different. This could be due to many things, level of "loved"-ness, the beans falling down to the tush etc. HOWEVER, I something compelled me to check their tush tags!
THIS is where it gets interesting.
>The US one had the official Hasbro stamp and info. But it says 2000 as the latest date, and has the American address on it!
> The German one says 1999 as its date, does not have the Hasbro stamp but IS stamped with "distributed by Hasbro INTERNATIONAL".
My question then is:
Was the Hasbro Heracross made in two ALMOST identical versions, one for EU and international buyers and one for the US?
I find this just facinating as I assumed I was going to "end up" with two identical Heras! :O
Also, I have a few small sales!
