Are there any other boxed sets like that ?

What about Jaws, Planet of the Apes (old version), Terminator, Predator (camouflage, damn where is the f....ing box), and so on... :D

That's a big wowser here. If they had marketed it like that here in Europe, I would possibly have bought it just for that cool head.

Aegis,

Did the information include where it would be sold in Japan? Like what store chains would hold it? Maybe I should go shopping tomorrow...

No details at the moment - I'm waiting for a friend to email me back telling me where he found this - watch this space!

Wow, thats too cool. I did find a great alien 3 figure hiding in the back of an Anime store, and managed to get one of the origional Kenner toys from 79 off of e-bay (never mind how much it cost).
I so hope this will be available!!!

I checked into this with a friend of a friend living in Japan. It's limited to 9000 units and most are gone already. Some places not sold out are selling for about $300, plus s/h.

Too rich for my blood, but DANG is that cool! :D
