I hadn't realised the orders would close so soon, so I just ordered mine! There's three hours left (JP time applies as the deadline)...

It's probably worth noting that the figures have already started popping up on Yahoo Auctions and Mercari, so even if you didn't manage to preorder one you may not be completely out of luck.

However, it's still not clear how much they're roughly going to cost when bought "second-hand" like this, so the asking prices are kind of all over the place right now.

For reference:
Clear figure, starting bid 2000 yen
Gin figure, starting bid 4000
Gin figure, starting bid 9213 yen
Gin figure, asking price 9999 yen

Redshark has specifically asked people not to buy through anyone other than themselves, and they want to make it possible for anyone to buy from them. https://twitter.com/ultraredshark/statu ... 5224519680

Contact them if you've missed out on an order and they might be able to help directly :)

Not yet! Since Orion is now next instead of Riki, Riki will probably be released after.

Mine came this morning too!
I thought it would be smaller, the size is really good. I also like the paint job.
Those figures are a complete success IMO. The only downside is I wish they didn't all have the same pose, which puts me off from getting all of them because I think they'd look weird together. I still want Orion though.

Yep, it came with a tag with Gin's picture on it.

Also random side note I'm not sure anyone can answer but I'm curious:

Image

The back of his nogging has all the copyright information, but it only lists Yoshi himself (高橋よしひろ) and neither of the publishing companies that own rights to Ginga (Shueisha and Nichibun Comics), with the rest being specific to the figures themselves and not the characters. How exactly does that work from a legal point of view? Especially since the art of the tag is directly from GNG and thus by all logic should belong to Shueisha. Is he allowed to give official license to minor products like this without having to get the publishing companies involved?

I can't keep my hands off my Gin haha.

I'm glad we've got fellow fans who are able to make such items as those figures and the PP plushies
