as already known TM label(early version) is sewn on the surcoat. it seems to have changed in R label(later version), R label is sewn on the armour shirt. like these, label position was changed later in some outfits. in King Arthur, there should be no sewing inconvenience in either position so this is just my personal opinion, in King Arthur, probably Mattle thought the label was should be attached on the main item(armour suit) and rewrote a sewing instructions for seamstress. no matter how small sewing change, the instruction would have been rewritten.

Also my two versions has the same paper tags. my paper tag ’29’ is sewn strictly on each items.

すでに知られているように、TMラベル(初期)はチュニックへ縫われていて、Rラベル(後期)はよろい上に縫われています。このようにラベルの位置が後から変更された衣装がいくつかあります。King Arthurの衣装ではどちらの位置に縫ってもほとんど同じ縫製です、ですのでここからは私の個人の意見ですが、おそらくマテル社はこの衣装のラベルはもっとメインのアイテム(よろい)につけるべきだと考えたのではないかと思います、そして縫製指示を書き直したと思います。どんなに小さな変更点であっても、縫製指示が書き直されたでしょう。
