K2 Slayblade Japan Model??

Anyone ever seen a "Japan Model" K2 snowboard? I just purchased a 09-10 Slayblade 153 from an authorized online dealer (listed on K2's website) and they sent me this snowboard. As far as I can tell it's identical to the US model except for the Penguin logo (right's issue?). Everything else is identical except for an extra K2 logo in silver on the front so I'm assuming it's authentic.

Here's a pic of the "Japan Model" and extra K2 logo in front.

Called K2 customer service about whether they would honor any warranty issue and they said it would as long as the receipt is from an authorized dealer.

Anyway just wondering if it's normal for US dealers to buy up leftover inventory from other regions and if there are any other differences.
