        All I can tell you is that they don't have a single copy of GtM VIII
on their store shelves and I had to order my copy after seeing that GtM IX
was right there next to GtM I ~ VII.

        The Model Catalog v1.0 book was awesome though. An excellent archive
of all Bandai plastic kits, including some long-out-of-print nuggets that few
outside of Japan have ever seen.
