Contact GSC support for a replacement: support@goodsmile.jp
Include the Figma number (153), a pic of the damaged part, and your shipping address. GSC is very good at supporting their products, even for people outside of Japan.

I must be dense...

Got Link today. So awesome.

But...I can't figure out how to put the Master Sword into his hand? Does a part of the sword come apart? :/
This shouldn't be difficult...but, I also didn't want to pull something/break something. (The hilt must pull apart...right?)

The bottom tip of the hilt (the little piece that is thicker than the rest of the hilt) comes off. You may have to use some force to do it. With that off, you can slide the sword down into his hand, then put it back on.

I used EMS which takes 2 days to deliver (shipped on 11/22, received 11/24). I usually don't use EMS since it is crazy expensive, but there was a 50% off EMS deal when I ordered. SAL usually takes 2-3 weeks to reach me, so normally it would be today (12/6) at the earliest that I would get him through SAL.

Actually, I have a different figure that shipped SAL on 11/21 that I'm still waiting for. -Update- Arrived 12/8, so 17 days by SAL to Florida,US.

Thanks. I looked over the sword for a few minutes and decided that was the only place that *could* come apart. But, it didn't want to budge. (Granted, I didn't pull too hard.)

I used the SAL (unregistered) to get my Link.

I got my Link yesterday. I also used the EMS 50% off deal talked about here, but my figure was stuck in customs for a week :(

Oh well, it made it and I'm super happy with it


Edit: Also, does anyone know the release/preorder date for the Pit (Kid Icarus) figure?

Hadn't heard about this one. There is no release date yet. Check the MyFigureCollection page for updates.

Figma Pit: http://myfigurecolle...net/item/117917
Figma Dark Pit: http://myfigurecolle...net/item/118548

I hope they keep these Nintendo Figma's coming. Zelda would be amazing, but they would probably do the Skyward Sword version which is a bit different from the common Zelda depictions. Twilight Princess Zelda would be epic:

I think it would be hard to make a Zelda figure with a pose-able lower body, due to her dress. They could probably do Sheik. A SS Zelda would be better since all she did was play the harp (minimal lower body pose-ability required). I'd love an SS Zelda to go with SS Link.

What I really want though, is Ridley (Super Metroid Ridley).

If you're having trouble getting that piece off, try warming a cup of water and dip the tip of the hilt in there for like 20 secs. Hot water makes the plastic more pliable. This trick can also be used to realign leaners and help pegs go in easier (like the ones in the backs of Figma's, sometimes those are a pain to get in).

I finally got mine. Man, they do an amazing job packing these things... but the box for mine was still a bit damaged, as it was with Samus (thought that was shipped with Zero Suit).

BTW, any word on upcoming figmas that might be interesting?

The Pit Figma's are the only big name video game figures I've heard about. They don't even have a release year yet, so I would guess summer 2013 at the earliest.

Don't know how popular this is, but Persona 4 Aegis Figma comes out this month (December 2012):

Preorder from AmiAmi (3600 JPY, ~$44.33): http://www.amiami.co...de=FIG-MOE-6771

Persona 4 Labrys Figma
in February 2013 (3630 JPY, ~$44.70): http://www.amiami.co...de=FIG-MOE-7580

I don't know anything about the Persona series. I recently picked up P4G for Vita because everyone says it's awesome, but I'm finishing other Vita games before starting it. I think at least Aegis is a popular character since I've seen other figures of her. Other Persona Figma's have already come out, including two earlier this year. If interested, check second hand stores like Mandarake and AmiAmi Pre-owned.

I got my Link figma today and he is beyond awesome! This is the first figma that I have ever purchased and it is crazy how detailed he looks and all the accessories he comes with. I would personally love a Twilight Princess Ganondorf figma next.:D

Pit and Dark Pit Figma's are up for preorder and available April 2013. Links added to op. AmiAmi preorder of either includes 3DS AR code as first run bonus.

I'm still debating getting one. I like the 3DS Kid Icarus game, but I'm not a long time fan of the series. Since I already have Samus and Link Figma's, it would be fun to get Pit and set up a Smash Bros scene for them :3

Eh... don't really care for Pit. At all. The new game was a dud... But setting up a Smash Bros display sounds like an awesome idea.:-k

I wish they would make a Ridley or Zero Suit Samus figma. I'd love to make a Metroid themed display.

My replacement Master Sword showed up. Super cool of those guys to provide support like that. Getting that removable piece off was a bitch, but it seems like it'll be easier going after that first time.

Considering it's my first Figma, I'm pretty impressed with the product and the customer service.

Updated op.

After two months delay, Momohime is expected to be released tomorrow, Jan 18. She is sold out at all the stores in the op, so I hope you got your preorder in.

Kongiku is selling out at many places, but Hobby Search still has her. Considering Alter's Momohime was delayed, there's a good chance Kongiku will be as well. Still good to get your preorder in now if interested.

Samus Figma is going for big bucks at second hand stores. Last I saw, she is selling for at least 10k JPY (~$118) unopened.

JPY has been falling lately. Paid for an order a few days ago from Mandarake, and the PayPal exchange rate was 1 U.S. Dollar = 87.0918 Japanese Yen. Should help us save a few dollars on figures + overseas shipping.

-Edit-
Kongiku pre-order open again at AmiAmi: http://www.amiami.co...de=FIG-MOE-7355

Momohime is a bit more expensive than the pre-order price, but I'm surprised she's in stock at all. Better hurry.
