New update, amiami finally has them instock (no longer on preorder close status, you can even order them now), so probably expecting shipment notice soon
EDIT: Also payment requested! Woohoo!
I only just got my payment request to Amiami. Wonder what the hold-up there was.
Yeah feels like they're slowing down a bit, I had to contact them to ask if they're shipping 5 days after I paid.
It may be worth mentioning that I contacted Show Z Store to replace my Scarlet's heterochromatic eye decals (they were stuck to the yellow paper they come with and trying to clean it off ruined them in various ways) and they promptly shipped something out. That is without me even providing any pictures of the damage, because I wasn't thinking about trying to get replacements at the time. I have to give Show Z props for an easy process.
I managed to apply the rest of the girls' eye decals to my satisfaction. Now I just have to figure out how I want to make mouths
Wow these are so cute! Kawaii
I know you didn't ask, but if you were so inclined, Amiami apparently still has them all in stock AmiAmi [Character & Hobby Shop]
These girls are adorable, I need this. And the red Dino dragon too.
Hmmm, it doesn't give you the prices for the 4 different shipping method. You have to get a quote... I feel bad making them give me a quote for each method.
Don't feel bad; email them and make them do their job. If they somehow haven't figured out how to provide shipping costs like every other website, and they explicitly instruct their customers to email them for this, don't feel bad about doing it.
I went through this with them 2 years ago. I emailed them like their instructions say to do, and instead of giving me the estimates I asked for, they told me the weight of the package, a detail which still didn't really allow me to calculate the costs myself. After I replied, making clear that they should change their instructions if they didn't want people to follow them, they did provide the estimates for all their shipping methods. I went on to give them a rather scathing email about the whole process of trying to shop there, and they replied that they are only a small team. This coming from one of the biggest-name sites of their kind.
I wouldn't have mentioned them if they weren't the only place I've found all the girls in stock. I honestly forgot just how much of a hassle it was, but re-reading my email exchange with them brought some of that back. I remembered that I ended up buying something from their "amiami_com" account on ebay instead. So I looked it up to see if they had the Magic Henshin girls on there, and they do, but they're much more expensive: AmiAmi Japan | eBay Stores
Evertime I see these twins they remind me Rem and Ram
I'm sure those two were a huge inspiration for the twins.
Seems very likely, they even have the little hair clip/ribbon x detail thing.
Yeah or maybe something like this that transforms would be interesting
ShowZ never got my individual figures in stock (missed out on the set). Had to cancel today since I didn't want to wait any longer and something else that cost about the same came up that I wanted more.
Shame because I really did want to get these.
I think of Dorothy and Leona West. Unfortunately (for me), it doesn't seem like either of the Gemini Wings is male.
Not just to be a contrarian, but that could also be a reason to think they weren't the inspiration, if you thought that Iceberg wouldn't want to copy a detail so directly. I think it could go either way. Pairing/contrasting pink and blue is a common enough motif, but Re:Zero is well-known enough that it would probably be harder not to have seen those two
This must be something close to their ultimate form
Oh wow! Is it just the Torso part of Thunder Dragon (?) you've not used or is that hidden in there somewhere too?
Oh is the centre part(s) of the Twins' cockpit thing also not used?
I like the underarm grip on the Dragon Tank cannon too
Yes, Scarlet Dragon's chest part is unused. I actually arranged it with the other unused parts, the Gemini Wings' cockpit and microphone, as a kind of armor stand.
I thought for a long time about how I could get the cockpit on there too, but I couldn't think of a good way. I did think of a silly way though:
It's not actually attached; it's just wrapped around and clinging on via the speakers on the back. I think I remember someone in this thread mentioning the idea of doing something like this, before the girls came out
