In a particularly nice touch on their site, clicking on the image allows you to use a magnifying glass to zoom in on the specific models that are contained in the set.
According to the site, pre-orders started today, August 10th 2010, but actual sales start on September 4th. The set will cost 13,500 Yen.
Now, before anyone asks, YES, that is (at today's exchange rate of 135 Yen to the Pound on www.xe.com) 39.00 Great British Pounds more than the UK retail price of 60 GBP...
