Default '12 vs. '13 Burton Super Hero Rider Weight Range Differences

Yoo dudes, question for anyone who might have an answer. I just picked up the mid-season release 2012 Burton Super Hero (first run). It appears to be the same as the 2013 "official" release Super Hero in every way except the graphics.

What's tripping me out is the rider weight range between the two. Burton has the 154 2013 model as accommodating riders up to 200 pounds, while the card on my 154 2012 model shows the weight range max at 170 pounds.

Anyone know what the deal is on this discrepancy? It seems the boards are the exact same, minus graphics, so why the difference in weight ranges? I'm hoping Burton just pulled the weight range off the 2012 Hero, and that my new board adheres to the 2013 specs as I'm on the heavy side otherwise.

Let me know what you know, much appreciated all!
