    Hey guys, I've been ordering my masterpiece figures for a while from AmiAmi, as they are so expensive in the US. But to date, I haven't seen any available with the collectors coin. Is there a Japanese store that sells these figures at or near the cost of the ones at AE or AmiAmi that do carry and supply the collectors coins?

    No, because collectors coins are a bonus for Asian-based retailers outside of Japan. Japanese retailers never offer the coins. If you want them you'll have to buy from a Chinese retailer like Robot Kingdom or look if your local import retailer offers the version with the coin.

    You'll pay extra either way, so you'll have to decide if the coin is worth that to you. I myself am happy enough with displaying the collectors cards, I don’t need the coins.

    The official date for orders set by TakaraTomy is 7 April. Amiami are just adhering to that date.

    Pre-ordered. HLJ also says September... guess we'll have to wait until the TT-Mall listing is up to see if he does come out sooner than expected.

    Put in a preorder for it as well. I was expecting an October release but September is even better.

    Sweet, just remembered I already have a September order started anyway (though what's there will likely be delayed), so even better idea to have waited for AmiAmi to list him.

    Pre-order now placed. ^_^ Can't wait!

    HLJ has it for $87.15
    Nippon-Yasan has it for $79.49
    Anime Export $75.44

    I think I am going to stick to Nippon-Yasan here since I dont have to pay up front for it.
