Yeap. How someone can think they are excellent toys
is beyond me.

Actually I prefer boxy packaging compared with easily
damaged blister pack on a fragile card. However, the
MSiA's packaging leaves much to be desired. It cannot
be easily resealed (need to use tape every time) -
they should have used the slide-in design like the
old Eva action figures from Sega.

You know, the above would have been really funny if none
of the statements were so true.

Nope, it's cheap first-makes everyhwere. It's strange how
the Kado Senshi chogokin toy, also made in China, managed
to come out so much better by comparison.
