Figure News: Another month, another batch of delays

Figure News: Another month, another batch of delays
17 Feb 2011 00:23:38

Well, this really shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone, but it still sucks. Good Smile Company, ALTER, and Max Factory have just announced another batch of delays - which includes pretty much everything they were going to release this month. To be precise, the following February releases are now March releases (unless denoted otherwise)... (Updated with new items.)

-Kamen Rider Ouja Strike
-Kamen Rider Raia Sting
-Rei Ayanami
-Black Gold Saw

-Date Masamune
-Black Gold Saw (pushed to April)
-Yuyuko Saigyoji (pushed to May)

-Hatsune Miku Tony Taka ver.
-Nadeko Sengoku
-Xecty (swimsuit ver.)
-Blue Eyes White Dragon
-Red Eyes Black Dragon
-ALTER Ryoko Ookami
-ALTER Ritsu Tainaka (pushed to April)

I can already tell what GSC's thinking.

Although to be honest, this kind of thing is making me much less inclined to purchase GSC products. If you know an item's going to be popular (Rei, Masamune, Black Gold Saw, etc.), don't announce a release date until you're sure you can actually release it on that date! This is the second delay for all three of those figures (as well as Taka Miku and the Yu-Gi-Oh! dragons), and it seems like every single one of the Kamen Rider Figmas has been delayed. I'm cool with the delays, but please don't announce them less than two weeks before a product's due out! [/rant]

Anyway, how are you guys feeling about this now-frequent development? Disappointed, or relieved? Sound off below!

I'm a bit disappointed, but in the end relieved. I missed preorders for both Date and BGS figma, so this gives me more time to find cash to hunt them down with later. I was also a bit over budget this month anyways because I found a decent priced figma Saber Lily.

The whole constant delays thing is getting pretty ridiculous though. It's pretty sad when you can pretty much EXPECT delays.

Oh well... makes this months orders easier to afford.

Is the BGS nendo going to be delayed too? Or do you think she's safe?

Why do I get a uneasy feeling all the kamen rider figmas to come are going to be delayed.

Every one of them so far has been delayed, with the exception of Ryuki Dragon Knight. Although to be fair, this is probably a pretty confusing project for all the parties involved - Medicom is manufacturing them, Max Factory is providing sculpting and supervision, and GSC is distributing them. But at any rate, I'm thinking of just preordering Camo and Axe, and waiting to see if Michael Jackson gets delayed to may as well. Those three are the only three I really want (at least, until the new ones from WF go up for preorder), so I'm just gonna play it by ear...
