    yea but, $65 for a 5.1inch figure? even if it is battle angel, that is still pricey, unless it has a bunch of parts like micromans have.

    Well, it's not JUST the figure. You get a 278 page manga as well.

    I was tempted by this myself. Just too many other things on my plate, though.

    You'd better take pics when you get it!

    Yeah, well, I just found out about the figure today, all the places that originally had it for preorder for $40-$45 were all sold out and the Ebayers want between $80-$100 for it, not including shipping. This was the only place I could find it, in stock. As I mentioned, not something I would normally do but knowing how quickly these limited edition figures packed with a manga can vanish and become very expensive very quickly I had to jump now or lose it forever. No buyers remorse here :D  Shipping was only $11.60 for the 2-4 week sevice so I can't complain.

    true how ever, the manga is in japanese.

    i don't speak japanese.

    so it doesn't do me any good, now does it. :tongue: 

    also it has nothing to do with the official storyline, according the site, if it did, *it actually says it is an alternate universe/timeline* so again really doesn't interest me much, now if it was an actual volume in the series, then i would be interested.

    but for now, i'm not interested in the manga.

    how ever the figure looks interesting, it's just that price...

    I have that figure box.
    The manga is pretty nice, even tho i don't read japanese either.
    The figure is cool, but very fragile. Display piece for sure.
    I could take some pictures if anyone is interested.

    Well, $45 originally. But i am a bit disappointed with it, yeah. I was hoping it would be more like a Busou Shinki. You have to be careful with those too, but Gally is really fragile.

    It's a Gunmm figure. Its an insane figure, but too costly compared to Figmas and Frauliens.

    This is true. Even the $45 i paid for it is too much. But it's not as if Gunnm figures grow on trees, and i'm a big fan so whatever.

    I don't think comparing it to some figures that aren't even released yet is a good way of looking at it :redface2: 
    I do think the Figma look awesome in the promo-shots (i am so getting Lelouche on day 1). Fraulein Rei looks a bit shit to me tho.

    well why not? he has neither in his hands, and he is making his own judgment about it.
