Interesting that the US is only getting a 1xCD, if countries like Thailand and/or Philippines are getting their own 2xCD.

Not sure really! Maybe it's as with AR and US and the TH/PH also just press a 1xCD and getting their 2xCD from the EU... The latter would make more sense!

Didn't someone say that the Japanese 2CD is the EU box and cardboard sleeves with Japanese pressed CDs?

Dunno, but would make sense! If I remember correctly, we already had that, with the PopArt package!
But in the end it counts, where the discs are from!

It is indeed - 1st post updated.

If anyone has images of the non-EU releases that'd be welcome (especially the backs with cat#, company info, logos etc). :)

Thanks - any additional stickers or extra expensive "import" price?

Only the EU sticker. I got it from Amazon for $21, but the price has gone up to $27. Still cheaper than the UK.
