Default TRF416, where buying them

I would like to find myself a Tamiya TRF-416, but prices are actually quiet high over here in Europe AND the car becomes hard to find.
I have found this car in HongKong-shops for around $ 450,00, which is ok compared to our strong Euro.
It costs 450,00 over here, which is around $ 660,00.

But ... all shops I know seem out of stock.
Someone knows a webshop that still has the Tam TRF-416 in stock, at a reasonable price?

two on ebay? That's new then. A couple of days ago there were none to find there.

[edit]
found them: MyAtomic.com
but there are only shipped within the US.

Tamiya USA had them listed as discontinued for a while on their site and now it just says out of stock. Perhaps they are coming out with an upgraded model. Knowing Tamiya I wouldn't doubt that.
