I've tried to do my homework on this issue and I don't have any definitive answers. A couple of theories:

1.) for the first run of turtles, the different factories they were created in made the nunchaku (and hole punches) slightly different

2.) the beaded nunchaku were part of the first run of figures and it was subsequently fixed therafter (they are ridiculously fragile, and that's saying a lot considering how fragile that weapon always was)

There are fan club figures that have a smooth nunchaku, but there are no beaded nunchaku that come with non FCF. Anyways, they are more rare, regardless.

If you look at the nunchucks the line that connects the handles has a bead or rope like look. The regular version has a solid line

I'm wondering about rarity, and if I should have him graded.

I have found only one other on eBay but he is part of a lot of 4 FCF turtles and seller wants 700+

I got him pretty cheap so either he is not rare or seller didn't know what he had
Either way at least I have a MOC soft head Michaelangelo in pristine condition so he probably worth grading anyway

There was a thread on this subject but I didn't get to read too much of it and now I can't find it and have searched every keyword I could think of

I have never even heard of this before, so that's saying something.

well after enough digging and the perfect arrangement of key words i was finally able to find the thread i started reading some time ago

i just checked and mine also says "Package printed in Hong Kong" and "Assembled in China"
but still no idea on rarity.
