Lucky 7s Indeed - Nendoroid Kaito Reissue

Lucky 7s Indeed - Nendoroid Kaito Reissue
08 Jul 2010 00:55:07

What have we here? It seems that on July 7th of all days, Good Smile Company announced that they're finally gonna re-release the Kaito Nendoroid!


"Hell yeah! About time, too!"

Since the figure's initial release way back in February of 2009, demand has far outweighed supply, meaning that it was nearly impossible to obtain one for under $120.


This is the closest you're gonna get to a cast-off Kaito figure, folks.

Thankfully, though, GSC has finally listened to all the constant fan requests, and will be re-releasing him!


Miku's smiling 'cause she knows that she got four re-releases before Kaito even got one.

While it's not set in stone yet, it's pretty safe to assume that they're going to do an open run this time around, like the Figma and Nendoroid Black*Rock Shooter and Figma Mari. If this is the case, then there'll be more then enough to go around, meaning pre-orders won't sell out for weeks or even months.


"Attack, my pet!"

The ship date for the reissue hasn't been confirmed yet, but pre-orders go up tonight at JAPAN TIME (usually around midday JST) via the usual places (Amiami, Hobby Search, HLJ, the works).


Even Luka has already had a rerelease, and she isn't even a year old. Poor Kaito.

Thanks to Mikatan's blog for the information and pictures!


"Yes! My minions have returned!"

Does anybody plan on picking this guy up? I'm glad I waited rather than paying scalper-prices...


Remember, Kaito's minions are going to "recommend" you pick up this Nendoroid.

EDIT: Amiami put him up, and he sold out in minutes. They'll probably get more - surely GSC wouldn't be so stupid as to let K-On Syndrome occur all over again, would they? At least HS and HLJ won't run out for a while...


*sniffle* "I sold out already?"

Kaito re-release, huh?.. Well, I'm not into Vocaloids, though I adore some of Miku and Rin figurines, but Kaito nendoroid... really don't understand what's so special in it. BTW, what did you mean by open run? Just in case, I remember the K-On! syndrome. I barely missed my precious Mugi nendoroid that time.

A closed run is when the company manufactures a given number of a figure, and only allows for that many pre-orders. This means that popular items (like the K-On Nendoroids) can sell out very quickly. It seems that Kaito here was on a closed run.

An open run is when the manufacturer allows for infinite pre-orders, and makes as many figures as they receive pre-orders for. They've been doing this with some recent figures, including:
-Figma Azunyan
-Figma and Nendoroid B*RS
-Figma Mari
-Figma King Kazma
-all re-releases of the K-On Figmas and Nendoroids, starting with the July re-release of Figma Mio
-Figma Luka

Alright, to the folks who missed out on Amiami and HS's preorders: Go here. Check often. Hope you get lucky.

As for me, I've decided to resign on this one - I prefer Petit Nendoroids, and I can use the money I've saved from passing on this to grab Revoltech Mothra.

Yup. Kind of a fail on GSC's part...

Ah, seriously? They would do this after I just finally caved and bought him too. >.>; Oh well, no regrets. At least I don't have to deal with the panic of trying to find him in stock somewhere, and I made a friend out of the deal. ^^

It seems all the people that were whining about it after Sebastian's re-release got their wish. If I weren't already over my figure budget for the month, I'd be really tempted to pick up another Kaito. I want a Kaito army too. ;_;
