Sorry, the 6 is required to have a valid UPC code. Toshiba uses a 12 digit UPC code and 6 is the correct check digit for the partial code listed. The code I have posted is correct and I have confirmed that it was issued by Toshiba Consumer Products USA.
The photos you have shown only contain 10 digits for the UPC#. The first and last digits are omitted. The first digit is the first digit of the GS1 ID number assigned to Toshiba Consumer Products USA (each Toshiba division has a different ID number). In this case it is a 0. The last digit is a check digit used to check that the rest of the barcode is valid. The correct check digits are 1 and 6. Thus I took your partial 10 digit barcodes and corrected them to be the full 12 digit barcode you would find on the package. Then I looked them up in the GS1 database, which revealed an A2, and an undescribed item.
I am reminded of last year with Wal-Mart and the Gameboy micro. I waited in line and bought one. However, when I went to check out, it came up full price and not the discounted Black Friday price. Naturally I complained and they called electronics. Apparently the electronics employee who got the micro for me, got one from the regular case and not from the Black Friday stash. The two items, even though packaged identically, had two different barcodes. One barcode was for the BF model, and the other for the model they were normally selling.
When BF was over, they still had BF micros left. They just upped the price in the system so that both barcodes had the same price, and they mixed all their BF stock with standard stock.
Could very well be the same thing here. A standard price A2 (the barcode with the description) and a BF special A2, with a new barcode. The special could be free movies, cheaper price, a combination, etc.
