  1. I can finally breath! I know the price at long last!
    And if the release date is THAT far, then I’m obviously purchasing the 25000jpy full version, I have a whole year to save for it after all 🙂

    The last doubt I have will be resolved tomorrow: is it an exclusive release of GSC, or can it be purchased from other online stores?

    I can’t wait until tomorrow to know more about it! XD

      • Well, it’s more like : why wouldn’t you pre-order it now since, anyway, you won’t be paying until the figure is ready to be shipped? ^^; At least, this is the case for GSC official store, and amiami.

        -in the case of GSC store, the pre-order period is limited > between the 21th July 2016 (Thu) from 12:00JST until the 7th September 2016 (Wed) at 21:00JST. Take in consideration that in the event order limits have been met, the pre-order period will end before the closing date. Payment will be processed as soon as the items are in stock, generally 2-3 weeks prior to the shipment date.

        -in the case of amiami: from what I’ve seen so far, they do not follow GSC periods, and usually, their figures are up for pre-order for FAR longer, but then again, I also witnessed that an item might stop being available for pre-order at literally any given moment. In the case of Amiami, when the figure is released in June, they will email you with the total amount (the figure itself + the shipping cost -you DO NOT know the shipping cost until that step-) and tell you you have one week to send the payment.

        The actual difference in this specific case: the shipping cost.
        GSC offers free EMS shipping for the 25000jpy figure
        Amiami will make you choose EMS too by force (because of weight/size) for a 19460 JPY (22% off) figure, but you won’t know the EMS cost until June 2017 which, considering it’s a 45cm figure, will be high.

        I very strongly advise you to go to the myfigurecollections page of the figure: http://myfigurecollection.net/item/396841
        and ask all the questions you have! Right now, there are massive talking in there, and many fans sharing ideas, asking countless questions and so on, and most of those people are worldwide pros at ordering figures! 🙂

          That’s exactly why. I could swear my credit card would be charged the moment I place the order. At least that’s how it is in most online shops.

          Take in consideration that in the event order limits have been met, the pre-order period will end before the closing date.

          So there IS a pre-order limit, then… scary.

          It’s already up for pre-order at CD Japan with 10% off! http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/NEOGDS-199862

        • AmiAmi has 22% off so that’s even better ^^” I think I’m gonna order from them unless there’s a better deal?

          • I personally ordered it this morning from GSC online store, something I usually don’t do, but in this particular case, they offer free EMS shipping and I like to know that the final price is 25000jpy.
            In the case of amiami, the shipping cost will be unknown until June 2017, though you can already expect easily 5000jpy considering the figure itself is 45cm, so if you add it’s own box and the shipping packaging, plus the weight was estimated by fans to be around 2-3kg…

            All in all, it’s pretty much a very similar price in the end, whether it is amiami or GSC!

            The problem now is: customs fees, from which I will absolutely not escape … I am expecting easily 80eur for this *cries*

            • I see… I think I will ship mine to Japan (I have a friend living there) and I am planning to go to Japan myself next year where I can get it and then take it to Brazil with me, thus bypassing custom fees.

    • RE expensive CCS merchandise: Cutesherry, I think I remember you saying that you’re still hunting for the Poster Box released back in 2000, right? A complete set just popped up on Yahoo! Auctions for only 1000 yen. You can see it here. I was able to get my own copy for roughly 50 USD this way, so keep an eye on it if you’re interested!
