Default Bonus in Estes Luna Bug Kit

I was at Hobby Lobby yesterday looking at kits and I found a Luna Bug with two fin sets in the package. In addition, the fin set laser cut is now corrected, the first run kit I got had a small offset in one of the fin root edges.

With the extra fin set I could do a six fin version but probably will see if I have a nosecone in parts to make another.

Was there another kit with the bonus? Maybe yours is just an anomaly? Iíllhave to check our HL, the Luna Bugs are staying in stock now, instead of flying off the shelves.

I bought a couple really old Big Daddy kits last year, in a clearance bin at a HobbyTown, for $6 each. They had been opened, and missing minor items. One kit was missing the decals, which was fine, since its getting bashed into a Der Grosser Vati (sandman creation using DRM-style decals). Another kit had three sheets of balsa with no die-cut marks, just plain balsa. Iíve never seen that.
