    Does anyone know approximately how many are out there? How rare is it?

    Never released officially. A few samples do exist though. Maybe less than 5 each as I have seen personal pics of both.

    It made it far enough for packaged samples. I'd say maybe a couple dozen are floating around.

    I just got one last week. Pictures will be coming very soon! :D 

    From what I've gathered, there are only three known to be in existance. I'm sure there very well may be a handful more out there, but no one's come forward with them. One's in Japan, one in the UK, and the other sitting on my shelf. :D

    That is beautiful. Its rarity is a CRIME.

    Two of the three are sealed (mine and the one in the UK). The one in Japan is opened.

    Man, those Japanese people are fearless.

    Congrats on the acquisition bro. A fine addition to your Prime/Convoy collection.
