I wonder how much of the guide they finished before they had to cancel.

That really makes me sad about the Nioh guide...

 

been checking the amazon listing a few times every month.

Kind of off topic but received my first First 4 Figures statue today (Tanooki Mario) and damn, this has definitely turned me off from these cheap ass statues we get in majority of these video game CEs. Going to definitely slow down on buying these CEs now with statues and buy more statues like this.

Yeah, they are pretty good. I've sold several of their pieces over the years for a friend of mine, and I always found the quality to be top notch. The prices are a little on the high side though, as most of their gaming related pieces can be rather "basic" in details.

 

My last personal buy from them was the Star Fox one, and it was very nice as well, but I ended up selling due to financial issues at the time. And while I thought it was a great piece, once again, price was an issue overall for me personally.

Yeah, some prices seem pretty high. I really want that Bowser statue they are releasing which is giant, but damn, $700. Any other sites that sell Nintendo related statues like these?

On another note, if you missed out on the Retro City Rampage Switch CE, Vblank will be putting up remaining copies that were “held back” Monday 11/20 at 12pm ET.

It just depends on the characters, and who it is company wise. Gamestop had a Star Fox statue awhile back, but the reviews said the quality was terrible. "N" themselves used to offer some decent items at Club N, but that is long gone. Japan and EU may offer statues on their sites, but NoA is ass and then some, so nothing to be had here.

 

First4Figures seems to be best currently, as they have some type of Licensing deal, but Think Geek has a lot of "N" merch, so maybe check there to. Import places might also be a good place to try, as I'm sure Japan has tons of great items across many price ranges.

The only time I bought from F4F my statue arrived broken and they asked me to pay the return shipping to Japan for a refund minus the shipping they initially charged me (they didn't even offer me an exchange). I don't remember what the cost was, but I remember it was obscenely high (I was in high school at the time and couldn't afford it). So now I'm stuck with a decapitated F4F Fierce Deity Link in my closet.

Oh hell no, that's unacceptable. I hate places that try to charge return cost for their screw ups. I would have gotten my CC company involved in a situation like that, as hopefully they could have worked something out. But who knows? I would definitely black listed them after something like that, no question.

imo the F4F policies are very customer unfriendly and have turned me off from buying from them but a lot of their figures are impressive. That $700 Bowser is epic.

Unfortunately, I was in high school at the time and didn't understand the intricacies of eCommerce. This was also 2006, when eCommerce was still a weird mess. I wish I'd taken the time to have more follow-through, though, as the FDL statue is worth thousands now (and it was originally $130).

I feel your pain, as we all live and learn. I was lucky back in high school, as that was when I first started ordering bootleg music disc from the backs of trade papers. I would send funds to Italy, and then wait to get my product sent. Amazingly I never got burned, but it easily could have happened.

With Project Octopath going up for preorder on Amazon, I would expect a CE announcement soon. But as it is a Square title, it will be a SE store exclusive, come with a "Project Octopath Juicer" and be $450 (We are only making 5,000!).

Truth is the hype is building for this game, so it will prolly sell out VERY quickly.

Have you played the demo? The hype isn't unwarranted for an RPG fan.


I've been waiting for this since playing Bravely Default.

I didn't expect this game until mid to late 2018, so I hope the amazon preorder is a sign that it'll be sooner than that.  The demo was excellent, so this is one SE store exclusive that I will very likely jump on, depending on content, of course.

The Dissidia FF NT UCE added collectible cards for pre-ordering. Not sure if current pre-orders get them added or if you have to cancel and pre-order again.

I'm guessing the GameStop ones get it too?

Combat looks good! Im currently playing through the first one and the combat can be a little frustrating with my non controllable party members getting in my way/bad mana usage/etc.
