    Oh man...this is confusing...so will OOOs come with Ankh? I'm asking so I let my friends know. We're getting "ripped off" in our country because sellers are keeping the Ankh for themselves.

    The sellers in my country can be downright "low" in my country and I really feel for genuine fans who want the Ankh.

    Every TaToBa in the first production run, until TaToBa gets an official Bandai reissue, is intended to come with Ankh. The local shops you have to suffer with are just dicks about handling the bonus items, since they're boxed separately and so easy to scalp.

    The second production run does not happen until April. Until then, Ankhs for everybody! Probably including the Bluefin imports to the USA.

    Thanks for clearing that up, dude. So its confirmed that the shop owners that aren't selling the Ankh are just capitalising on the situation. I guess my friends won't be buying from them anytime soon.

    There is always the possibility, however small, that the Ankh bonus is being handled entirely differently by Bandai Asia, and that the stores aren't getting one for every TaToBa they stock. I can only go by what I know about Bandai Japan's supply.

    And speaking of supply, HLJ really is claiming that their TaToBas won't include Ankh anymore!

    S.H.Figuarts Kamen Rider OOO TaToBa Combo

    This is strange, as AmiAmi has claimed that their reissue TaToBa isn't going to be stocked until April, which was why I even said it wasn't considered a reissue until then anyway.

    S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Ozu Tatoba Combo (April 2011 Restock)AmiAmi English Site

    Maybe this is wrong, and the reissues DO come out now and AmiAmi's just getting their orders filled a month later? Or their release date is totally off?

    See, everything was so nice and simple, and now it's getting screwed up.

    You have documentation that yours comes with one, so it won't matter to you. Only to anybody ordering one from HLJ after this point.

    Unless you get some order update email with bad news...

    I'm really getting into Kamen Rider, but I can't really decide on which figures to get, and where to get them.



    Are S.H Figuarts Kabuto and Decade any good cause I'm really digging them.

    Any places I can buy them cheap(under £40)

    I suggest aiming for riders that you like in terms of design and show and you can always buy them online like HLJ. £40 is a steep price! :O

    That, and if you're in no rush then you could always wait for an eventual reissue.

    they are both great, if you choose decade, make sure you get the violent emotion version as it comes with a more accurate head. as for kabuto, he has been reissued onced and will be reissued again in May... i believe dark kabuto will also get a reissue. it looks like kabuto is sold out everywhere even for the pre-order, all the main riders get sold out pretty fast. Hyper kabuto is a cool figure too and he is available now should you want him.

    So I've got my payment request. It too comes with "Nukh". This e-Mail is also after HLJ was claiming no Ankhs so take that as you will....

    My OOO is coming via EMS due to HLJ's hilarious "all orders shifted to whatever mode you selected for the most recent preorder" policy, so I should be getting mine early next week. Whether or not I have an Ankh should help settle this.

    So I order mine hoping to get Ankh, but my payment request says I'm getting Nukh, and my payment confirmation says I'm getting Unkh! I'M SO CONFUSED!

    Man, that's as bad as how some stores have Figuarts as Figuerts.
