looks like they were loose in a box for a while (especially the B, lost of parts broken off the trees) as long as the bags are sealed they should be complete.

TMP-A one looks to be an original mold, not the retool they did last year

did you get the full wallpaper decals?

It won't be pre-painted but the styrene (plastic) will be almost the right colour.
And as long as the bag is sealed the kit should all be there. Don't worry about the parts not being attached to a sprue. There will still be some stubs attached to the parts though so will require some clean up.
There is no dark side of the moon really, matter of fact its all dark.
