      The OP has a link to the Tomopop article which lists the different stores. I personally recommend AmiAmi.

      You forgot to mention the saber, and other images I've found show a pretty neat stand with three spots for interchangeable section ID icons as well as a crane for the figure. I'll post them in the thread...
      EDIT: Just to be clear, I just found those images via Google, I am not quite sure whether the stand and such will actually be included in the final release, although I certainly hope so...

      HNNNNNG I NEED this so badly! To bad she doesn't bring extra head parts but then again it is suppose to be ELEANOR. Now if only they and Kotobukiya would make ULT so we could have the sisters together XD.

      Same, that's where I ordered it.
      The EMS shipping is pricey... But I feel like it's worth it for the quicker delivery.

      Awesome! Finally a preorder! I found pics of her months ago last year and was worried they cancelled production on her. With so much accessories, she's a MUST HAVE! The only gripe I have is her bubbly, round style overall (compared to the plastic kit versions). But that's easily overlooked. I just wish they'd release more figures of the other character classes so my hoard of RAcaseals have other people to play with.

      interesting. I'd like to see them do some of the prominent NPCs from PSO like Kireek as well

      Agreed! First thing I wanted to find out was if they're expanding on this and making other characters from PSO. We shall see, but I won't hold my breath...for too long

      A slight problem might be that the Chogokin series seems to consist almost exclusively of mecha and robots. Other Casts are a possibility, but the other races seem unlikely.

      Yeah, it would be awesome to have a 1-1/2 foot long Orga Flow figurine in your room XD...

      Its far too expensive.

      Well, as I said in the thread, it's a pretty typical price for this kind of figure. If you're used to it it doesn't seem like that much. :P

      Not to mention that she comes with tons of accessories, all already built for you. That's actually a fair price for the detailed and multipart figure that this is. It's just the fact that action figure prices have steadily grown. And the yen + shipping conversion isn't helping either. Now where's my Kireek?! Or any other cast figures for that matter! The amount of racaseal figures I have is ridiculous. And that's all because they refuse to release the other classes!
      I'm a PSO fan, not a RAcaseal fan!

      I'm a RAcaseal fan, but I'm honestly not that fond of the Kotobukiya ones, seeing as they're plastic models. I prefer figures completely assembled and painted. I certainly hope that other CASTs will be released, though races other than CASTs seem even less likely, considering that the Chogokin line consists almost exclusively of robotic figures.

      This actually arrived for me last week, I was surprised as hell ^_^
      Now, they need to make one for Kireek, and I would have ALL the glory, ALL OF IT
