    What a random and strange assortment of characters to kick off a new line with.
    Best of luck to them. Seeing as its Bandai, I'll keep my fingers crossed for some 12" figures from Macross Frontier.

    That's the thing with Bandai. They can release pretty random characters in their toylines. This can be seen in their SH Figuarts and Robot Tamashii line. The scary thing is that if a line doesn't do well, Bandai will just drop it.

    Yea prices are expensive to import that. The quality better be there for that price. I will most likely wait for in hand reviews.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Bluefin might try and distribute at least Threepio and Artoo here in the US, maybe even the Tiger and Bunny and Godzilla ones.

    I also believe Bluefin will be disturbing these and saving us US buyers some dough. Which is great for us since we won't have to be hitting F4 to obtain one of these pre-orders from the usual import sites. :rock

    Agreed, I would so buy an Alto, and I hope all of you are right and Bluefin distributes what they can I doubt they'll be able to distribute any Sentai stuff, and I hope that they'll make some Kamen Riders
