Yes - Love the Graphics ! Unfortunately the Box is still in Japan and not mine - but happy to have the toy - also found in Japan. At least now the picture is available for us to see how it looks. thanks Brian -this Update made it possible for me to upload this picture from my Smartphone ! More to come later on ...
Nice Addition ! All look Original to me - and yes it is time to add more Variations to My Old list and revise it !
I had never seen the Original version wIth the Japan stamp on the foot and the dome without the slots!
andnow we know there are more Original Yonezawa Boxes - Smoking Robot and Smoking Spaceman with the rounder letters.
Very interesting - i have to check my Lilliputs next week when i come home .
I had the same guess as Lunik - it could be from the Print process and putting the fresh Painted metal sheets over each other.
- still a Mystery.
i do not think that the paint goes through the metal sheets even after more than 70 years.
