Kits are NOT shrinkwraped when they come out of the factory in Japan.
Neither does the Japanese hobby shops shrinkwrap them. It's a practice I
am only aware of that's being done by Legends and its parent distributor,
The Right Stuff, which according to them is the only Bandai approved U.S.
distributor of Gundam kits left (the other two couldn't meet Bandai's
monstrous quota so they dropped their accounts). They shrinkwrap the kits
to avoid customer disputes or people who buy a kit, clip off the parts they
need, and take it back arguing the kit's missing parts.
