1990 Technodrome MISB Question (WARNING)

Okay, so I found a reasonably priced Technodrome mint in the box on eBay and scooped it up for around $1,200 as a Christmas gift to myself.

Does anyone know about the "Warning Small Parts" disclaimer and what it means?

Upon further examination of the pics, I noticed this disclaimer on the box (right-hand side) that I have not seen on most other boxed Techondrome playsets. I asked the seller if it was the original 1990 version and he said it was. Is this just a variation? Perhaps a foreign version? Or a reissue? The small print on the back of the box is hard to read in the photos. I have not received it yet, but am worried I that I got duped or bought and different version unintentionally. Any info is greatly appreciated...

I'm aware, I was a kid at one time, lol. I had this playset, but the disclaimer is not on some other versions of the package that I've seen for sale. Which is why I asked if this particular warning label was specific to a different version of the playset and not the original US 1990 version, which is what I (hopefully) paid $1,200 for.

I can check my box sometime over the next few days. It doesn't strike me as unusual, but I have no idea whether that was on the original box or not.

Most of the earlier toys had packaging variations. I would imagine this was no different. One would think the version with the warning would be more common since they probably realized they were looking at countless lawsuits pretty quickly.

That's true, and somewhat puts my mind at ease. Guess I have to wait until it's delivered to further examine the box.

I can only speak for those 90ies tmnt toys with german language on them but I do know 100% sure this was on every toy package at those times.

Was it less or not common at all in the states?
