Formania Nausicaa Gunship by Bandai!

HEy everyone, Thursday, which is today in America, Bandai anounced that they will be developing a "Formania" completed model of the Gunship fighter which was in Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. The movie was directed by Hayao Miyazaki and came from Studio Ghibli in 1984. Hayao will be directing the production himself.
It is due out late Feburary of 2011 and will have wings that can fold out and spread just like a birds whcih is 310-millimeters. So just over a foot. It has a moving cockpit, legs, air ducts, and a very nice display stand.
The only down side to it from being a fantastic model and having a good size is to it is that i will start out at 10,500 Yen which right now at the conversion rate is $126. The Formania series of models started out earlier this year in March with a Gundam bust.
Fantastic stuff, but can my wallet handle that? I don't know, wish it did.
