· The November 2003 Previews advertisement appeared on pages 230 and 383, and the May 2004 advertisement was printed on pages 457 and 497
· Bagged versions of the figure signed by David Mack were given away at Toy Fair 2003
· Although retailers were informed that the ratio of Scarab to Akemi figures would be 7:1 for each case, the figures were released in the ratio of 3:1 (six Scarab and two Akemi action figures).
· The back of the blister packages are the same except for the UPC symbols.
