    OK, I caved. One last one for 2013

    I claimed, rather naively, that I was done for the year. As Cedric quite rightly pointed out, never say never.


    Very large box. What's inside?

    Dear lord, another box! Boxes within boxes. A bit like dear Marshall, no one know quite who is the real one.

    As starscream pointed out, blue is an odd choice for the backlight. Red would be the more obvious choice.

    I wasn't actually intending to get this one until I'd seen pics on here. But, rather confusingly none have turned up yet. So, being the impatient kind, I saw a deal and jumped on it. And, gotta say, it was the right thing to do. I am really impressed with this as a collaboration. There is just so much attention to detail. Apologies for all the box shots, but it really was a pleasure to work ever closer to the G inside and I wanted to try to give you a sense of what I was feeling. Also, this is for starscream who mentioned he much prefers the excitement of an unboxing to just adding it to the Incoming thread. This is not just another lazy collaboration, a lot of thought has gone into the whole package and I for one appreciate the work the designers have done to make it feel very special.

    I hope you like the pics. This really is my last one of the year and I am dead impressed with it. (It really is Cedric!)

    I'm impressed also. Which japanese seller got his arm twisted - I tried a few, but no go.

    thanks, I've been dealing with him of late, but he wasn't one I asked. I did notice he sold the MNM on rakuten.co.jp but not GLOBAL RAKUTEN.

    ...and agree their packaging is insane - i got the exact same packaging for 2 standard G's from them. I have enough bubble wrap to last me a year..

    I didn't actually ask. Two units popped up on global and I snapped up one. Just lucky timing.

    You probably paid 21000jpy + shipping. On Ebay I paid twice as much. Theres one born every minute.
