That's the dilemma for North American customers, who
have to pay for extra import tax, other fees, etc. As
I mentioned before, this "chogokin" Gundam has more
plastic than metal, so you should ask the salesperson
to let you examine the kit first before you decide to
empty your wallet.

The height of the chogokin Gundam is approx. 12.5cm,
very close to the 1:144 scale stated on its boxcover.
