Looks like there is two versions of the art for that card...

http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Card_Gallery:Mad_Lobster

The simple one with a slightly different pose is Dark Revelation Volume 4 (2007 in japan)

the one that looks strangely like a stretched version of Sea Claw is Cybernetic Revolution. Can anyone tell me what year this set was? My guess is that it's newer.

Japanese Alteil probably had that card up in what, 2005? 2006? It was at least three years old when we launched.

The original lobster was most definitely drawn by hirooka masaki, though.

Cybernetic Revolution (2005) is released in May 2005. It's probably because both arts came from the same artist, lol.

So if Cyber revolution came out in 2005, you mean Yugi-Oh changed the art so it was different from ours later? That's pretty funny, maybe they did it because of Alteil.

Ok. I have played Yu-Gi-Oh since Metal Raiders and I never noticed they changed the card art on Mad Lobster. Of course, I never needed to play a lv 3 normal monster, so I guess I never cared. I have to say the skull makes sense, because it is from the Dark World (at least I assume?) I still think it is a wierd looking card, but then again. Between water monsters with odd art, and laugh worthy, Space Mambo takes the cake.

In all seriousness. I think that would be cool to look into. I know Yu-Gi-Oh has made some changed before when cards were re-released, but I have never noticed a slight artwork change. I mean "After Genocide" was changed to "After the Struggle" to not be so Morbid. All I could find on Mad Lobster was it was changed to look less realistic. Who knows though?
