Hi. Does anyone know how I can get a hold of a Matryomin? (

If so, how much do they usually cost? Is there a kit somewhere to make my own (I'm not too big on soldering, though)?

You'll need someone who can read Japanese... or you can try going here:

and inquire via email. Does anybody know if Masami Takeuchi speaks any English?

I have had occasion to email Masami Takeuchi in the past, and he appears to speak good English. (I also heard he learned Russian in order to take lessons from Lydia Kavina, so I don't think language boundaries are an issue.)
