        That's what Legends would have you believe so they could sell you a
copy with a straight face, but I think Bandai gives out copies to distributors
and the # of copies you get depends on how big you are (i.e. your sales
potential). I've heard in some Asian countries they only have ONE copy in
the whole country. These are clearly not for sale as the catalog does not
come with a price printed anywhere on it, but for Legends, which sells the
Eva poster you are supposed to get with some of the LMHG releases seperately,
any chance to make a quick buck!
