    It's not as bad as everyone was fearing. In fact it's NOTHING at all!

    Thanks to Kevin (Valkyrie-Exchange) at Macrossworld for the pictures.

    well, that's nice to know. I still ordered mine from overseas just to get it quicker, since I had nothing else to get from bbts.

    I can't tell you how giddy I am right now.

    LOL at those paying extra for unmodded Megs.

    Excellent. I bet a LOT of people are very relieved to see that this is all it is. Fantastic news for those who ordered from HLJ.

    After all that, that really IS a bit of an anti-climax, isn't it?

    Mmn, although, this is just how HLJ is doing it... y'never know how some of the other sites might...

    Makes you wonder if other sites went with a different method of plugging/capping Megs.

    The fact that the plug is sooo easily removed makes it's requirement even more of a farce.
    Can I order a real gun as long as it's got a neon cork bunged in the end?

    Wow, I'm shocked that that's all it takes to apparently get by Customs - adding a barely noticable and extremely easy-to-remove orange plug. Talk about being entirely self defeating.

    Good job U.S. Homeland Security :)

    I don't think that has to do with homeland security, they all know its a toy and letting it go isn't life threatening. I'd be heavily disppointed in our homeland security if they did put more time and effort into stopping what is obviously a toy instead of other things.

    Sorry to go off topic but Homeland Security is a damn joke.

    They just love to cry wolf with their stupid terror alerts.

    Rant off.
