    Any idea when this will come to the USA?

    It honestly looks amazing. I'm loving the flat volume/sleep/wake button so that the bumper looks seamless.

    After translating the page. It says:

    The set includes:
    • One flat body bumper
    • LCD screen protection film
    • Sheet 1 AFP (Anti-Finger Protection) Crystal Film
    • One anti-glare film
    • One protective film for the back
    • One microfiber cleaner cloth
    • Adjust the power button five seal

    Also stated is that it can't be used with the 30 pin adapter.

    It's said to cost 3,280 yen which is about $38. Wish PS would give us the option to just buy the bumper alone.

    Wondering about this too. This needs to be released in the US for the $40 price, importing for $70 is a hassle.

    PowerSupport responded to someone's inquiry and stated that like the iPhone 4 bumper, they have no plans to release the iPhone 5 bumper in the US.

    Seems like the only way is to purchase from Asian retailers. A very nice bumper case i would say :)

    I had the 4S version and loved it! Would love to get the iPhone 5 version, but no way am I willing to pay $70 for it.

    i agree, $70 is a little too much to ask for a plastic bumper. However, for a well made japanese product & the packaged screen shields, there will still be many people willing to spend on it.

    Since this is as close to a perfect bumper case as it can get. ;)

    If they have this released on day 1, yes I would spend 70 for it.

    Since I get new iPhone every year... which mean my iPhone 5 has 10months life cycle left only.

    I've got one coming from Japan. I have the Air Jacket for my ip5 so getting this one all in black was a no brainer. Costing about £45 in all.

    Unfortunately good cases take a longer time to be released. & PS is known to be one of the late comers, however their products are always top notch in quality and in high demand.

    No harm getting another case though, that is if you have that extra money to spend :cool:

    I think since iPhone 4, I no longer using power support screen protector, because they are really expensive and it takes long time for them to release...

    I am using Monoprice screen protector for the iPhone 5, very affordable~

    It doesn't look so slim anymore from your pics. Any reviews?

    Wow!!! :eek:

    This looks perfect! Especially because it's not interfering with the skin! Is that sticker(boy)?

    the buttons look so sleek on this bumper... I ordered one a week ago but they are out of stock in Japan... not sure how long the wait will be.

    This is probably the single best case you can get for the iPhone 5.

    No idea how they can charge what they charge for a bumper and people buy it.

    I remember when Apple first introduced the bumpers at $29 and everybody was screaming overpriced.
