The face is great and the detail is nice, but even with some extras thrown in like say an artbook or something. I couldn't see myself paying $1K for that and the Major is one of my all time favorite characters.

Just checked my accumulated TOM points.
I'm at $255 Usd. If I get that up to $300 before cut-off date, I'm going for it.
Life is too damn short...

Once you get it, just be sure to take some good closeup photos and post them here before you soil the figure, lol...

(Figure collecting got me to understand only the metric system for height.)
Yeah, but bunny figures (even if I really like it) usually are simple - no base, no accessories (or only simple like the sword etc.). Here we have a lot of details etc, so bigger price not surprised me, but not SO BIG.

Anyway, I'm pissed. A few years ago somewhere I have written my dreams about the future figurines (it was some topic like: what figurines are you want to have). I described: 1/4 scale Shiki Ryougi and the other one was Motoko Kusanagi (and I was even thinking about this version or this one:

Now, my dream comes through and the price is overwhelming me: /

Anyway, waiting for real photos with final decision, lol.

^^ I can most certainly empathize with your frustration HunterKIller.

The only thing more discouraging than not getting something made that you know is easily within the realm of possibility, is having that thing made available but then dangled teasingly from a height you cannot reach, at least not without sacrifice.

Btw, I love the Shiki idea for a 1/4 size as well! That would be so very cool indeed.

I haven't pulled the trigger yet but I've set myself a reachable goal and if it happens, I'm clicking buttons.
Best of luck with your own determinations.

whew. *fans face*

Glad that I never fell down the rabbit hole of buying anime statues. The expensive ones are very fun to admire in pictures though!

I know this is a tad late, but if you're still on the fence, Zavvi has this for pre-order for a much more reasonable $235 USD. Still too expensive IMO but better than $1000!

Omg.....

That's SUPER tempting at that price. I try not to buy statues/figures - but that would be SEXY next to my GITS blu ray collection on my shelf

I don't know how it's possible for that price at Zavvi to be accurate.
Something odd going on here.

I think I may order it and then see what comes about.
If they are forced to honour that price, this could be the deal of the year.
If not, I can always cancel.

Ditto. As gorgeous as that looks, I'm already in the black hole that is anime blu-rays. Figures is a whole another ballpark that scares the crap out of me and my wallet.

Figures are quite the black hole (especially 1/4 scales, pain, so much pain). For years I considered figures a waste of money and mocked collectors, then in 2013 I bought my first figure and yeah..... Boy did I end up becoming a massive hypocrite.
https://myfigurecollection.net/users...ales&order=asc

Though I'm currently falling out of the hobby as there's not as many upcoming figures that appeal enough to me to want to own and I ran out of space (I've got many in storage). Also, prices are rising rapidly, FREEing 1/4 scales are already very close to 30,000 yen MSRP (excluding tax), and in 2016, they were around 18,000 yen. Oh, other things that suck about being a figure collecting, the dusting (I recommend a makeup brush set), and if you ever have to move, so much time you'll have to spend packing them up.

Was thinking the exact same thing. Word for word. I'll have it at the $250 price, but if it is indeed a mix-up and the price can't be honored - I'll end up canceling it.

That is quite the price discrepancy. Maybe I'll message Zavvi about it and see if they know anything. (doubt it)

>Cancelling

Some advice for if anyone here does later fall into the anime figure collecting black hole, cancelling is something lots of shops don't allow (particularly JP shops), and if you try, you can get banned. Amazon Japan can be similar, I recently pre-ordered a rubber mat and they stated the moment you place an order you can't cancel it. Always think very carefully before placing a pre-order.

Yup. I've seen similar policies for some merchandise I've imported from JP as well.

No cancellations or order changes allowed. No returns or exchanges unless there's proof of damage/defect.

A lot of merchandise is made to order and once you place that order, you are hard locked to it.

I may bite at that . The thing that worries me about the Major is she’s at least partially made of Polystone . Not sure if things have changed ,but I remember Polystone being very fragile the last time I dealt with something made of it . $1000 was just to much of a risk .

Amazon JP usually has a cut off date to cancel by when things are first listed then it goes into can’t be canceled . Very very rarely if a item is a little late to come in or ship the cancel button does pop back up .

While I’m thinking of is the 8 disc Manga UK release of Stand Alone Complex ok to buy ? Does it have the issues the North American release has ?

I chatted with a CS rep and confirmed that the amount listed is not a deposit (which would have made sense maybe) so I also placed an order and we'll see.

I hope the quality turns out good since some of their 1/7 seems to have some paint defects. I would think 1/4 would be harder to miss.

This is obviously a mis-price as I can find nothing indicating there is a cheaper version of this. Worst case scenario they cancel the order best case they actually honor it. So I put in an order.
