To those who are thinking of importing these...DONT. Not because they're horrible, but because you can get them without hefty import fees!

Just got done with my Previews order (Yeah, I'm running late) and Kotobukiya is selling them in the US. You'll get these significantly cheaper if you order them through your local comic/game store as you wont have to worry about Shipping costs!

Here's the Previews code for them
SEPT09 1448 Frame Arms SA16-Stylet MUM Unit Model Kit $34.99
SEPT09 1449 Frame Arms GOU-RAI MAM Unit Model Kit $34.99

And yes, I am feeling rather smug at this moment....

Do you get still get to say 'I told you so' if you can get them unassembled too? Just checking for theoretical work arounds.

Actually, I have quite an extensive number of times that I'm right, forming quite a formidable precedent.

And, because you really wanted me to: I told you so. (again)
