Google translate and see:

"MX - 1 in the photograph will be a special dish, subjected to aging processing and custom. We added hot shoes and green lines, etc. We were considering selling in this form, but it was a "phantom machine" that we could not realize. Although not well known, the height of MX - 1 is designed to be together with the height of the shoulder of former PENTAX MX."

In other words a prototype of factory modifications for a special edition adding hot shoe and "brassing" wear lines.

Pentax in the past offered customization options to domestic (Japanese) customers such as a different hand grip on the K20D.

No. It's user of MX-1 made it. No WE, but I. The text in Russian. It's not prototype of factory modifications for a special edition adding hot shoe and "brassing" wear lines. The user of camera made it.
