    Actually it looks like they do call it that. The word smacks you in the face right at the top of the page:

    Hey, I know some of you missed the pre-order and I just saw this on evilbay from a Japanese seller. ( Not sure if its cool to post the ebay page? Not my auction of course)
    Its higher priced than the HLJ site but just in case price is no object for you and you just want to grab one and not have to worry about the hassle of chasing it down later.
    Just trying to help out.

    Surely these will become available again at or near the preorder price once production gets going? These aren't a limited edition collectible.

    You'd think so.
    Apparently some of the versions are limited. There's a page on the company site addressing the issue, to some degree, of their stock versus demand.
    Its kind of hard to understand once auto-translated but here it is in case it helps your buying decisions:

    Saw a couple up on ebay, seller is asking something like $250. For that kind of scratch you could get a decent resin casting.

    It was inevitable that people would jump on ebay and try to capitalize on demand. The prices, even for the "limited edition" squirt guns are pretty extreme. If they end up in Wal-mart for $10 a pop I'm going to laugh my butt off.

    If this is how it's being sold, really hope they'll give it a substantial ammount of packing peanuts when it's shipped out...

    Amazon.jp isn't shipping mine until Sunday - and it estimates that it will be with me in the UK by Thursday - which I am sceptical about, however, I did pay a stupid amount of postage, so, fingers crossed

    Have a second one coming fro HLJ, haven't heard anything from them either - but the listing still states
    "This item is expected to be released on or about 08/31".
    They'll either update it, or wait until they have additional stock on that date and start listing more product.

    I did get a notice from Hobby Search about 8 hours ago that this item was available for purchase but I just saw the email now so I missed my chance. I wonder how many seconds they even stayed in stock?

    The "clear silver" version has blue grips rather than amber from what I can glean from earlier blog links. Grabbed a couple in any case.

    I wonder if someone will do a run of grips to fit these at some point.

    HobbyLink is showing the grey pre-production render rather than a photo of the final product but for eight pounds each (rather than the 50+ on ebay) I'm happy to take whatever colour they send.

    Yeah, got the same notification e-mail (at 1:30am) saying they were available for order/pre-order.

    By the time I actually checked the e-mail around 9:00am, it was sold out, lol.

    Has anyone had notification of shipping from amazon.jp yet? It's due to ship today, and it doesn't seem to have moved

    Have one of each coming. Tentative, and it may be a while since I'm slightly banged up (took a tumble down a flight of stairs face first on Saturday) but I might look at getting a few sets of grips cast up in amber. Think the added weight would help the feel of the blaster, as well as the aesthetic.

    I couldn't get the AmazonJP account to accept my zipcode. I'm jealous of you guys. I really wanted to get one for me & 2 for my kids. Post a lot of pics when you get them!

    Well, there's still the ones on Ebay. $60 average (shipped) and that one crazy person trying to sell it for $249.99.
