If you don't mind getting your kits in less-than-pristine condition (they
don't wrap the kits in plastic bags like Rainbow Ten does, and as a
consequence the kits usually suffer slight damage during shipping), and don't
care that they don't send you a hardcopy of the order invoice, yeah.

Good luck dude, I seriously doubt these will be reissued.

Depends. Some other people have had better luck, but I have this order
that's been backordered since 1997.

You can try Rainbow 10, but I doubt they have any left. They were sold out
in Japan when I put some up on eBay back in December. Your best bet will
be U.S. retailers, but even Legends doesn't has a complete set anymore!

No guarantee on backordered items, and in the case of these metal clear
EW kits, I'd say it will never be restocked unless Bandai reissues them,
the likelihood of which is probably less than 1%.
