They probably will but it'll take some time.

I started collecting the SEGA versions b/c I couldn't possibly afford twelve full-priced Alter or Koto figures (while having several other pre-orders) and personally, I don't appreciate figmas



CM's Horo is up for pre-order!

I'm probably going to collect the Alter SW figures.

Just finished SW2 and I'm a fan...

Loved Trude and Eila the most but can't say I like the Koto figures all that much. The Alter Shirley, Sonya and Minna look great.

I'll pre-order Minna and Shirley and have to hunt down a Sonya that isn't $200!

Yep, I preordered her instantly. Though I'm still not thrilled with her, I feel she is the best Horo to date, so definitely don't want to miss out.

I don't have any of their figures, but the prototypes look promising (especially the latest pics) so I'm hoping production version matches it.

I just combined all of my April preorders in to one shipment. It's going to be rather pricy, and the most I've ever had at once;

(T)(Pre-order)Touhou Project 1/8 Mountain's Telegnosis Momizi Inubashiri Complete Figure | 6,630.- | 1 | 6,630.-
(T)(Pre-order)Touhou Project 1/8 Yukari Yakumo the one behind the spiriting-away Complete Figure | 8,100.- | 1 | 8,100.-
(T)(Pre-order)Touhou Project 1/7 The Devil's Little Sister Flandre Scarlet -Laevateinn ver.- Complete Figure | 9,000.- | 1 | 9,000.-
(T)(In-stock)GUILTY GEAR XX ΛCORE 1/8 Dizzy Complete Figure | 9,420.- | 1 | 9,420.-
(T)(Pre-order)Nendoroid Oreno Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai - Kuroneko | 2,600.- | 1 | 2,600.-
(In-stock)Nendoroid Black Gold Saw from Black Rock Shooter | 2,600.- | 1 | 2,600.-

Ami are expecting the rest of my pre-orders on the 27th. At least the yen has weakened a little recently... 38,350.00 JPY = 435.041 AUD. Shipping may top it over $500. But the figures are ones I really want, the nendos are just collectables. I should have never got in to them. ;.;

Heh, don't worry mate, I spent little under $1000 AUD on a Warhammer 40k model splurge.



Also just pre-ordered the Alter Minna and Charlotte figures.

Ah, Games Workshop. Craftiest thieves of all time. That sure was a hobby that could add up. I didn't get -too- carried away, but my uncle spent untold thousands on miniatures. He didn't even play, he just liked painting them (even had some of his work featured in White Dwarf, many moons ago).

Anyway, I digress. I love Alter's work, and kemonomimi figures... but I just can't bring myself to like the Strike Witches figures. The legs are just too silly for me. It's a shame, because apart from their striker units they are gorgeous.

Finally, nearly 2 years after her debut, her Pre-order starts tomorrow. I don't normally buy figures nowadays, but I'll make an exception here because this series always have a place in my heart.

Doesn't look that special.
I may buy it but only if the price is not higher than 6000yen

Mate... She's got a bloody trench gun. That's special!


But apart from that the figure doesn't do much for me. Never finished Gunslinger Girl.

MakubeX2 you just made my day, I been wondering what happened to that Triela figure I'll probably buy 2 or 3. One to open, one to keep in the box and a third if I feel lucky.

Haven't bought a new figure almost 2 years. Been spending elsewhere.

For the pre-orders is HLJ or other sites getting it as well I assume?

Still wonder what took them so dam long to release Triela I remember way back when I the news broke and was going to buy it but sadly she never came out.

Since there are no official listing of price at the current moment of this posting, my estimate will be around 4500 yen. Which puts it at about US$55.

4500 yen is too cheap, it be around the 5000 to 6000 yen mark.

Just ordered mine at AmiAmi for 37 GBP: http://www.amiami.jp/shop/?set=engli...e_display.html

A true testament of Alter's craftsmanship. She looks as perfect as the prototype model. Figure of year?
