I saw them first in 2006 here on dA and I wanted to get them so bad!
Whenever I had side money to buy stuff, there were other things I needed t get and it's never easy to buy a +$300 worth of tools in one go. Yeah, I could've bought them separately but somehow I didn't do that either, and it's not like it's cheaper that way on the long run.
