You got ripped! That looks like a counterfeit 1/144 Turn-A. The real
thing costs, IIRC, 500 yen, so in import stores it sells for $7.50 ~ $9.99.
Those Chinese bootlegs are horrible in quality, even if it's cheaper by a
few bucks you'll save a lot of time and frustration by buying the original

That one should be in 1/72 scale. Doesn't move or anything, but a good
display piece after you are done building it.
