NOTE: The proxy on the left has its first effect written differently from the text box at the bottom of the picture. The text we have translated is the one in the bottom box (this is also the text that was in the script read by the hosts in the stream). The one in the picture reads:
“During the Main Phase of the turn in which this card was activated: you can Special Summon 1 Level 6 or lower Insect monster in your GY.”
In other words, you still get your Insect monster, but instead of selecting your target when this card is first activated and Summoning it at resolution, you can activate it at other points of your Main Phase during the turn in which this card was activated, and it does not target.
Yes, this means we don’t know which one is correct.
