Yeah I understand all that but these are pre or non high grade 1/144
kits we're talking about here. The MSiA's were $20 each. That's high
considering they are going to be released here for $5.99 IIRC.

attached mail follows:


Actually, Jason, that's not. That price covers:
A: Conversion of the price in Yen to Dollars
B: Import tariffs and duties
C: A slight markup on wholesale so that the wholesaler can make his profit,
and...
D: The dealer's markup (proportionally higher for the high demand) so the
store makes a profit...

$16 to $ 25 is about average for imported kits, with the exception of the
MGs (30+ dollars) and PGs (90 dollars or more...)
