    I have a friend in Japan who is coming here in May, MP Megs will be out by then. Should I ask him to run to TRU and pick me up one, and bring it over? I understand the importers cant have it unmodded because of the box art. Can he take it out of the box and pack it loose and still bring it over? Or am I just asking him to take too many chances with customs?

    Maybe I should just wait til March til we hear the "Man Arrested in Airport for Toy Guns" stories before I decide.

    You can still get unmodded ones from Canada, as far as I know.

    I had problems with my G1 Meg at the airport in Montreal even if it was loose in robot mode... because of the stupid scope.

    Mp 05 will still go throught customs even from Canada to the States. Unless you come to Canada and pick one up like sami, but still is not fool proof, what happens if you get searched going back over. Shippers from Canada are still not responsable if it gets stopped at customs.

    Just have him put it in his carry-on, the odds of it getting searched are actually pretty slim.

    Um, that doesn't sound right. If that were the case, you could send over drugs, weapons, and bombs and just mark them as gifts. Am I wrong?

    G1 Megs was easy to ship through customs since his scope can be divided into three separate parts - I doubt the MP Megs will be as easy. Thank God I live in Toronto and will be able to make a simple drive to pick it up from Kool Toyz...

    I find it even more ironic that we can buy real p-38's in the US, but not Megs (in Vermont you can even carry a p-38 concealed w/o a permit).



    I don't think the scope would cause problems since you can bring in real scopes with no problem.
