>Here in Singapore its already out and going for 18 bucks...thats quite high
>for a 800Y kit.

Low supply & high demand results in a pricy kit. That's generally the way
things are for Gundam kits in Asia outside of Japan. Here in the U.S. the
stores just stay at a fixed price unless they are overstocked for a long
time.

>It seems like the price of plastic is going up every year.

So is oil and everything...

>Why's the Zaku I priced at 3000Y when the Zaku II was about 2600Y?

What? If you are talking about the MG kits, they were both 2,500 yens.

>Is the MG Dom featured the actual production kit? Somehow it doesnt seem so
>impressive from the recent photos...I expect a bit more details but the kit
>looks a bit too smooth.

The fan created "MG" Dom that had a B&W photo in an issue fro HJ earlier
this year had better proportions and detail designs IMHO...
