    I'm not by any means complaining about getting extras, but I am curious why the US and Euro markets are the only ones. Can you give some background on that?

    Wow, legitimately glad I held out on Nicee - She looks great, but I don't care about Arcee at all. Do we have a price/preorder links for this gal yet?

    that's a weird thing to do. Exclusive regional head? Makes me worried for those that ordered from ShowZstore or whatnot.

    Agreed. How the hell are we going to know which version we are getting? Since the US based stores often sell items that were “released” in Asia.

    That's all I was told by the main man. Aside from the she's coming out this year.

    I wouldn't be worried since Show-Z can usually carry whatever they feel like carrying same with every other Online retailor.

    Show-z store are the only folks so far that have it up for preorder. you may want to do a google search to be sure.

    well most notable e-Tailor tend to request what they'd like to carry or they are given the option of carrying Exclusives. depends on the e-Tailors and if they care or not.

    Ever heard the term "Closed Mouths Don't Get Fed"? Etailors need to speak up if they want to carry the product. and Big Firebird also needs to hit them up and ask if they'd like to carry their product. but if neither one makes the first move, well..it's kinda their loss.

    At least that's my personal opinion on the matter. and of course as they say, Opinions and all that. heh

    Wow, I mean, I'd be a little upset if I don't get the bunny head from the shop I ordered her at.

    But I don't think I'd use that much anyway.

    Think I'll give red eyes, make her NEMESIS NICEE.

    Unlike her good version, who does it innocently, she AGGRESSIVELY flaunts her unique build in front of others.

    So... bunny head AND standard head? Or just bunny head? No offense to BFB but I could care less about the bunny head. I just want the standard head. I've place a preorder with ShowZ when it first went up. Would hate to have to cancel that and then fight around or even have to pay mor for import or aftermarket to find a standard version. If it comes with both, then i can just chuck the bunny head in a drawer and forget about it.

    Oh... faceplate question. Please tell me there is going to be at least one normal face and they are not all "tongue out" "O" face...

    Just include a neck peg.

    I made a simple neck adapter for my personal Copy of Nicee. it will allows me to use her Titans return headmaster. Solves the head issue.

    If I dont like the face, Shapeways has other options. Im satisfied. If they do the same, you can have any number of heads/faces you wish, ears or no.

    Any chance that it was poor wording or a bad translation and that they meant "NA/EU is getting the bunny head as well"?

    Because I just can't fathom a company making a whole head for a toy and then selling it in the biggest markets other than their home region...

    We will soon find out.

    If I had to wager a bet, each version comes with 2 heads. (just as NICEE did) but on the one we're getting one of the heads is the bunny head and the other head is the standard head we've been shown already.

    While on the regular version, more than likely lt's two of the same head but one has a different expression. (again like with NICEE) That's my guess and I'm sticking to it til they show off more of her with all of her accessories.

    Totally possible. I've seen plenty of statues use that tactic of not including all variant parts in the one box, encouraging people to double-dip.

    Actually, come to think of it, that non-transforming Movie Optimus girl figure by Alien Attack does that - there's a 07/ROTF and a DOTM version.

    Gotta say for whatever reason this retool appeals to me more than NICEE as a figure. I think it’s a mix between the speed-racer/ridge racer esq car and the black coloring. Might actually pick this one up
