it has some changes aside from country of manufacture - not sure if those changes are information for public consumption yet or if it's really still in prototype status though...

It should say "only locker made in USA"

To me it dosent mean anything, but to many people it does. Just about every Profender thread has some douche saying "Buy American or die" all while typing on his China computer and watching his China TV, then getting in his Toyota.  >:(
