I'm getting 2B for sure, and I'm hoping Big Nep from VII turns out great.

 

At first glance the Makoto P5 figure was an instant buy for me, but I think I'm going to wait for it to be painted and finished before I decide if I want to preorder it.

I think that Lina Inverse is awesome! Slayers was one of the first Anime series I ever had the pleasure of watching! Gourry and Zelgadis were my favorite characters for a long time! I'm glad to see that series getting some love!

Anyone use any US based sites to preorder on? Seems like that's a cheaper overall option than using a Japanese site. What sites do you use?

Anyone use any US based sites to preorder on? Seems like that's a cheaper overall option than using a Japanese site. What sites do you use?

I've used all of the US shops listed in the op. Anime Island is currently my US shop of choice thanks to free shipping, 20% down on pre-orders vs having to pay 100% upfront (though you have that option too if you prefer it), good prices, and there seems to always be at least 10% off coupon available.

 

BBTS is also nice since they allow cancellations and don't charge for pre-orders until release.

 

I've been using TOM less thanks to their increased order cost requirement for free shipping and increased restrictions on shop points usage. TOM does ship their stuff well and includes nice extras such as a clear file and some Japanese snack/candy.

 

As far as cost vs Japanese stores, US stores can be cheaper but usually aren't. USD has been holding strong against JPY. Even after paying to ship your package across the world, the price is usually less than US shops. Sometimes it depends on the manufacturer's relationship with the shop. For example, I've noticed Anime Island sometimes has the best price (factoring in free shipping) on Kotobukiya figures. For Aniplex exclusives, going with a US shop such as TOM is usually cheaper than importing.

 

Japanese shops have the added benefits of getting your items much sooner, increased stock reliability, and better able to predict month of release. If you think Japanese figures get delayed often, US shops incur that same delay + additional US stock delays.
