In this life I won't buy this kit, I'd rather buy three Hasegawa kits with the money. Tamiya now lives in another world with her prices. Around 100 € for a bit of plastic, that's almost 200 DM. Never ever.

In Japan it's $75, $60 pre-sale which is is reasonable. $100 is too much.

In Germany, most Japanese kits are relatively expensive. This is nothing new. The Tamiya Tomcat also costs around 90 € in Germany. You only get them a little cheaper most of the time. Also Gundams.I do not understand the problem 🤔
PS: In addition, there is no F-4B from Hasegawa, right?

Since the DM ceased to be a valid currency 20 years ago, your comperison is a bit flawed, however I give you that: Yes 100,- would be too much! But do look around: MBK has them as pre-order for under 90,-€. I personally pre-ordered mine for 75,30€ incl. discount from The48ers.com.

I agree - it is quite expensive, given that you also can buy aditional "hop-up-parts" from tamiya itself to that kit as well. But take into account, that one can easily price up badly tooled kits with resin and etched parts also - and it seems like this tamiya tooling in 48th scale is the new benchmark without the need of further sets.
