    Dude that is quite a troubling statement lol, if you of all people never even seen it on the shelves, what chances do the rest of us have?

    Hint: our chances are equivalent to the number of MPMs I've seen in my area. Zilch, nada, zeroooo

    If I never imported my toys, I'd be such a sadboi ;( I can't imagine how the other potential MPM-goers feel

    I feel bad because I'm pretty sure that there's two stores in my area that have MPM-4 readily available.

    you severely overestimate my will, let alone my self-esteem to do anything for myself

    Is it so hard to just want to see at least one of these MPMs on the shelf in my lifetime? I'm 95% convinced those in-store videos and pictures were staged

    just yanking your chain thar

    To date, I've only ever seen MP-21 in store, and I think I might have even seen a Prowl once? But otherwise, no dice. I did the phone method and did find out they had 8 MP-10s at one point. I think the hype is still strong, and I will see it eventually, but it's just not very reassuring to think that future MPMs will always have to be imported to get into the collection. I'm very deep rooted in the joys of brick and mortar, I like the option of buying in store, and the comfort of refunding an item if it is not up to par with quality.
