    MP-05 ended up costing me $99.19 shipped!!!

    I just got the payapl charges on my bank account today, that's about $10 less than I expected!

    Nope, shipped from Japan, now that I look at the original e-mail, it was supposed to be $117.00, so I saved even more than initially thought.

    I ordered from HLJ, I expect to get a modded one.

    I had pre-ordered on from HLJ back when they said it would be unmodded, and canceled my order when it came out that they would, at that point they were kind of my last hope to get one unmodded, so I turned around a few days later and just said "screw it" and ordered from them anyway.

    I got mine from HLJ, and mine was unplugged. I do live in the UK though, and they did say their UK shipments wouldn't be affected. The plug is a tiny push in thing that only sits on the top of the barrel. From the news thread, that sucker comes out quite easily, at least it gives the appearance of coming out easily.

    It's the least she can do for the ring you bought her. Hell, mine got me a PS2 (when they were $300) when I made an offhand comment about engagement rings and gender equity. Coolest thing she ever did.

    yeah, order was placed this morning....i found a guy on ebay with them for 120 shipped, with a plug thats not glued in, so that'll pop right out. but then he sold out yesterday after i left work.....but i emailed him and he's got an online store, and that saved me and now my bday present is on the way....i put it on our joint card, but she's gonna cut a check for the amount, then try and get a few friends to chip in on it as well...(she doesnt make as much money as me, and probably already has a few other things picked out for me too) but regardless of who ends up paying for it, im getting one...im stoked....
