Yeah, the daily email is the first time I saw them as well. I mentioned in the first post that I already have the UDF figure, it's nice but the quality is about on par with the 6.99 figures jakks pacific figures at target albeit much smaller.

Don't think AmiAmi ever had them. While they are made by Bandai, they are not in the MFC database. I had never seen that Luigi until TOM sent their daily email.

 

There's also this cheaper, and likely smaller (how big is the Bandai one?), Medicom UDF Luigi's Mansion Luigi: http://hlj.com/product/MEDUDF-201/Fig

They're actually made by a company called "Nihon Auto Toy", not Bandai.  The Luigi is almost twice as tall as the UDF figure - about six inches or so.  And no, AmiAmi never carried them.  To my knowledge, they've never carried any of Nihon Auto Toy's Mario stuff.

Ick, no, Jakks puts out some of the crummiest figures imaginable, with incredibly sloppy paint.  The UDF figures, especially that Luigi's Mansion one, are so much nicer.

Seconded on UDFs. I have some of the Mickey Mouse ones and they're good quality figures for the price. I've rarely if ever been disappointed by Medicom's products; they're one of my all-time favorite figure companies.

Anime Island still has Alisha up for pre-order.  It says it will be in stock July 31. You gotta put down at least 20% deposit though.

Figma MGS2 Snake delayed to June: http://myfigurecolle...net/item/233765

 

Looks like Nendo Cynthia pre-orders have closed on Amazon Jp and she is already going for over twice her original asking price. If this is anything like Nendo Red, Amazon Jp will randomly open up a few pre-orders up until release. I also expect her to get a US release later like Red did.

Just got an email from amiami regarding the delay for this figure. new date is on June! I was super excited to pay this month already. hehe! I guess i have to wait 2 more months for this figure.

If you dont want to wait... Amazon has the 3rd release batch still available. $36 is a great buy imo. I should have waited for the rerelease instead if shelling out around $50 for my figure a year ago. Hehe

To continue the trend, Figma Lucina is delayed to June.

A package I thought was lost (FuRyu Asuna and Leafa swim) finally arrived today. 58 days for SALU, a new record for me (previous was like 40 days). Other packages that shipped later than this one, including some from the same store, came in during the wait, so I thought this was my first lost package. The prices of the figures in this shipment are going up in aftermarket, so I ordered another set yesterday... lol, oh well, they came out nice so should be easy to sell the extra set and get my money back.

They also have free shipping on orders over $50 this weekend only. I ended up getting luigi and toad plus a UDF fire mario for 40.97 shippped. I wish they still had king boo in stock but oh well.

This is so expensive. I do love the P4Arena line though Aegis and Labrys came with more for a less price. I'll wait and see as September is expensive Miku Dollfie hands months I believe and also a Seven Deadly Sins girl....will pick up eventually though.

I just now saw that Shinichi/Migi figure listed on Amiami. Holy shit I have to have that.

I adore P4, but I just can't get into those figmas in particular. Agree that Aigis and Labrys felt more worth it.

Yu was a maybe for me, but once I saw that price I was like NOPE NOPE NOPE. He's so simple for a figma, yet costs a good chunk more than others that have more elaborate parts (and/or more parts in general).

My next Persona-related figure will probably be Parfom Labrys. Here's hoping that she won't have an insane price :razz:

I wish they would reprint the Kid Icarus Pit figma, it looks great, but it's like 160 dollars everywhere I look.

You can send GSC a re-release request: https://partner.good...rt/eng/inquiry/

 

Figma Pit took a long time to sell out after release (regular and dark), so chances are low for a re-release :(
