The bottom one has been out for awhile. I know because I own it.

Edit: But I guess I should have read more carefully since it says the bottom one is getting a reprint. Embarassed

More than just a gimmick. It's actually useful to tell at a glance when coffee and the like has gone cold after forgetting about it for some time.

I don't know what mechanics are behind the colour change, but if the image-changing material loses its efficacy it might be problematic if the two images mesh together.

Isn't there a problem with the last one? Isn't the duck a guy?

Yes the duck is Mousse. In the red graphic he is the guy behind Ranma's left shoulder. It is the same people in both graphics. Shampoo and Mousse switch positions from one pose to the next.

Generally, microwave and dishwasher is not recommended for these types of mugs.

That's fair, without his glasses he wouldn't recognize you, or anyone else for that matter. Very Happy
