Is there a list of all the Unifive figures available anywhere? I need to
know what's available... particularly if the series has Cima Garraha's MS
Gelgoog.

Are these things out of print? If so, how long? I saw some on sale here in
the Philippines. I'll try to ask the store if they can dig up more of these
for me.

Thanks,

Fed
