Shrink wrap can be easily resealed at home. There's little machines that does that for about $30. In any case I don't think Tamiya Japan even shrink wrap them out of the factory, it's the distributers who wraps it. (In many Japanese shops they tell you to open the box to verify contents before walking out of the store. This is why it doesn't come shrink wrapped.

LA is very big and I do not live in LA exactly but Orange county. Tamiya office is near to my office (5 minutes drive) but hard to find a shop carry this kit around here.

Shrink wrapping equipment is easy to get one........ but how to explain the good "Kit Label" and "Production date code sticker" were still on the shrink wrap. Anyway, I have sent the "date code sticker" picture to Tamiya US let them to investigate. I thought they will take care about that in order to maintain their image and reputation.

That kit label looks somewhat cheesy and can be easily replicated. At least you got your issue resolved

The date sticker and label can be removed. I use to do this stuff when I'd get warranty repairs or reworks at my old job.

Tower should be able to investigate it by checking who returned it into inverntory last before it got shipped out to you. Also, if you paid using a credit card, you can also dispute the charge through them.

BTW - Tamiya is terrible when it comes to nitro. They don't support it much nor do they further it with any development. Stick with Mugen, Kyosho or Team Magic.

no wonder they called it a limited edition, limited in the parts you got maybe the leads there to melt down to make your own parts or maybe you just lifted the parts and blaming others for 5 fingered discount
