Figure News: GSC gets slightly more incompetent, announces more delays

Figure News: GSC gets slightly more incompetent, announces more delays
15 Oct 2010 16:52:04

Y'know how I mentioned the other day that I hope the October Figmas other than Dead Master don't get delayed? Well, I suppose I jinxed it, because GSC just announced a number of delayed items. First up, the Figma delays!

Figma Mari Makinami Illustrious - Delayed to November

"You delayed me!?"

Figma Luka Megurine - Delayed to November

"At least I still have my tuna..."

Dead Master, King Kazma, and adult Mikuru are on time and will be shipped out on the 22nd, 29th, and 30th respectively. Let's move on to the Nendoroid delays...

Nendoroid Mickey Mouse - Delayed to December

Not even the corporate superpowers of Disney's marketing division could save him...

The other October Nendoroids (posable Saber, Amano Touko, and the Love Plus chick whose name escapes me right now) were all spared the wrath of the delaying gods. Some other GSC/Alter releases weren't so lucky...

GSC Hitagi Senjougahara - Delayed to December

Finally! I've always wanted a waifu who poops crafts supplies!

Black*Rock Shooter ~Anime ver.~ - Delayed to November

Poor B*RS, unable to lug that cannon over in time for an October release...

Alter's Asuka Shikinami Langley Test Suit ver. - Delayed to November

Good lord, she's so heavy, the iron beams are bending under her...

Anyone affected by any of these delays? I decided to cancel my Luka after this, in favor of a cheaper-to-ship OCC GataKiriBa. Of course, this could be viewed as something of a blessing, as it means October will be less brutal on the wallet...

Canceled Luka for the same reason, Nov. is already bad for me, adding another figma doesn't help. Thankfully delays = good excuse that amiami accepts as a reason for canceling so no fear of being blacklisted.

Amiami is pretty open to canceling pre-orders if it's only one item out of a larger order. Since Luka was part of a six-item October order, they were cool with it. They're also open to swapping one item for another, like how I swapped Luka for this guy here.

Of course. It was Hitagi & Asuka. But I didn't feel sad, at least I save my money for now.

Well, at least if they were going to delay figmas they delayed the two I feel I can do without a bit longer. November's better for me since I had to get the Miku and Luka Nendo reissues this month too.

Heh, I'm in the opposite situation. Considering selling my Miku and Luka Nendos, as I've decided to phase out full-size Nendoroids in favor of Petits (except Churuya-san, because I love that Nendo too much).

I feel sad about this delays. But from the other side a bit relieved too - november will be easier month for me.
