Theres an Maitreya Experimental Kit floating around that i've seen some vendors use. i'm not sure how they acquired it and there usually a general warning that the outfit may not fit properly. i think it was someones attempt at reverse engineering it. but yes big stores that you would of thought they could easily get it no problem have been denied and for them to not lose out on sales... necessity became the mother of invention...Is it true the Maitreya one is the hardest to get? I've seen a few big/biggish creators using best-guess for Maitreya bodies when I would have been sure they'd be able to get the dev kit.
