    Who would have thought at some little pop culture Japanese store they would have had one of these on the shelf (I bought it for a steal):

    Uh, you could have gotten ALOT more for that price. Obviously they had some idea as to what they had.

    Last one in this condition went for around $1200 on e-bay. It wasn't much more than MP-04.

    It didn't look like it was opened before. There was no tape, but no tape residue, which I heard is not uncommon. It definitely was not removed before and it has all paperwork, driver, missles on sprues, and an unused sticker sheet. It looks flawless...but because of that I am not displaying it out of the box.

    Jesus Christ. Sounds like it could have been MISB but the tape deteriorated/flaked off at some point.

    I hate you, btw. ;)
