This has to be a record for shipping charges for a plastic model.

A round trip ticket to Japan to personally pick it up would cost less

Then at the bottom of the listing is another "quote" for shipping at $26

If anything we love clear and accurate listings 😏

After the luggage fee, take off/landing tax and all the recent Covid-19 add on fees, a $1,000 round trip ticket may be on the low side.....

Those Fujimi Mad Max knock-offs are hard to find and date from the early 80's.  Back in 2014 I sold 3 of them in eBay auctions.  I didn't keep a record of what they sold for, but I'm sure none went as high as $168. 

Some more information for the curious and lovers of the weird: 

Their kit numbers were all MP-xx, for "Mad Police."  I never had MP-02, but I think it was an 80's Firebird.  

All the kits had ugly "sci-fi" body mod parts that just glued onto the basic kit: fender flares, huge exhausts, different noses etc. 

The best parts were the 2 figures in each kit, one male and one female.  They came with alternate heads: bearded or not for the male, with a helmet or not for the female.  All the kits came with a pump shotgun that the female figure could hold.  Since these were Post-Apocalypse kits, you could put both heads on 1 body and call them mutants. 😀 

A breakdown of the kits and what was in each one:

MP-1 "Destroyer:" a Nissan Cedric with a .50 caliber machine gun on the roof. 

MP-3 "Venus:"  the one in this eBay listing.  A Toyota Celica Mk. 1 with a huge 6-barreled mini-gun mounted on the right-side door and a Stinger-style hand-held rocket launcher.

MP-4 "Farcon:" a Nissan 200sx with a huge, futuristic gun mounted on the roof and a Stinger-style hand-held rocket launcher.

I just wish somebody could scan and save those Kit Pics, to the forum, so they don't get lost.
