    For those who don't remember: Two years ago, when Takara released Binaltech Meister, a popular Japanese bikini model named Mayuko Iwasa selected a special color scheme for a one-of-a-kind version of Meister, which would be signed and auctioned for charity.

    You can see some images here:

    Well... looks like it's back. Apparently, this was shown at a current toy show.

    Hey Nevermore, I can't help but notice that under your name it says "theoldguy" so were you "the new guy" on April Fool's? Did we ever find out who that was?
