The things we do for love

Here it is, boys and girls – a gun permit allowing me to legally own Masterpiece Megatron (MP-05) which arrived in today’s mail. You can now truthfully say that I’m certifiably something (what that something is depends largely on how you feel about geeks and collecting things). In order to get the permit, I had to:

  • Be a member of a legally registered club, that being the Megatron Club Inc.
  • Demonstrate why it is a necessary part of my collection
  • Detail how I will store the item to prevent unauthorised access
  • Submit a P638 Application for a Prohibited Weapon Permit, and provide certified copies of 100pts worth of ID

Fortunately, the fee is waived for collectors.

All this for a toy!?

Now all I have to do is to find one to buy when I’m in Hong Kong. I can also look forward to being stopped by customs as I re-enter the country after spending 8 tortuous hours on a plane…
