    Just ordered it.

    Chris - It's £8 odd shipped via EMS.


    EDIT: Looked as if it was £8 odd, actually came out to £19.70 in the end, see below.

    That's Lightfoot (Getaway) and Hydra (Darkwing) from Masterforce to the right of Ginrai, and on the other pages, Deathsaurus and Wingwaver from Victory (with the nine images at the bottom of the page showing Wing and Waver in their torso forms attached to the other members of the Multiforce).

    - Follow the link Ricochet posted.
    - Then click on 'Mandarake Global' near the top right of the page.
    - Click 'English.'
    - Click yes or no for adult themed products (doesn't matter).
    - Enter 'gc' in the search box.
    - Scroll down to the fifth item, add to cart, and it's straightforward from then on.

    With EMS shipping to the UK, it cost me £19.70/$31.50.

    You'll get an email a few hours after ordering with a payment link, they accept cards or Paypal.

    Thanks Ninety for posting the info on how to order. It'll cost me about $15 (assuming I did the yen conversion right) for the book in the US, but well worth it. I can't wait to reed the book.

    Happy to help guys, SSJ - I owed you a favour anyway after you got me the Target fiasco Animated sets (I have a long memory for favours :D )

    Book looks fantastic, only one I'm aware of that has all the Kabayas. Can't wait to get hold of it.

    Interesting, I have a similar TF Kabaya book that also shared pages with other Kabaya products from the 80s/early 90s. I wonder how more complete this one is.

    The book is a catalogue of Kabaya G1 Gum, apparently some articles about the decoys as well. The listing doesn't mention the smaller choco kits and I am not sure if they are included at all.

    Other contents include; Kabaya kits from Microman/Microchange era and overseas KO Kabaya.

    Will be a shame if the Choco kits aren't included.... :(  Still, if it covers the gum kits and some of the decoys, it'll still be the most comprehensive book on Kabaya's ever!

    It appears this guide doubles as an auction catalog. When will the auction items be added to the Mandarake site?

    Well talk about fast. It arrived at work today. I was shocked that it shipped so fast from Japan. Heck I can't ship to parts of this country that fast.

    I was amazed by the sheer amount of sets Kabaya put out. I had no idea that they produced a Fortress Maximus or Liokaiser sets.

    If you've ordered this book, you're in for a real treat when you get it.

    OooOooo... Decoys, Caramel, Ramune, Choco... doesn't look like full coverage, but even slight coverage of these things is rare.
