According to the literature found at the product page, this toy is coming out in May of this year and will be priced at 10,290 yen (after taxes), most online hobby shops in Japan will usually sell it at 9800 yen. It comes with a gunpod, pilot figure, missile pods, spare hands, stand attachments, manual and stickers. It has to be pointed out that the product page also stated that the pictures provided are that of prototype, so things might still change in the end product.
