Please add this note to the following minifigures:

The reissued figure can be distinguished from the original by the larger attachment
ribs in the torso interior.

cas128new
cas229new
sp001new
sp005new2
sp005new2
sp004new
sp004new2
sp005new
sp006new2
sp007new

Those are all the ones I could find where a reissue torso has been used in the
minifig inventory, and there is no difference in printing between the original
and reissue torso

Is it possible to have a Related Items note for reissued minifigs? The torsos
now (mostly) have separate entries in the catalog, however it looks like sellers
are still listing these incorrectly, perhaps unaware that another entry exists.

I think the only two related items options for minifigs are
- Figure In-Set Variants
- Figure Stickered and Non-Stickered Matches

Can a new one be created?

In addition perhaps a standard note can be added to minifigs such as SP001new

"Sellers must ensure listings for this minifigure consist of reissued elements
as listed in the minifig inventory and not the original elements"
