    Ugh, fucking coronavirus. Ah well, anything they would show off there will probably get shown in Figure King anyway.

    Better safe than sorry, but this is the only way to protect the public. Companies can always schedule their Hobby Show showcase in independent Web Broadcasts.

    That's a real shame, but you have to do what's safe. Corona spreads through contact with infected surfaces, and at those shows everyone's in close proximity and touching the tables and display glass and shit.

    Friendly reminder to purel my dudes and stop licking every doorknob and toilet seat you come across. Trust me, I know the temptation, but we gotta be health-conscious here.

    Words to live by.

    I won't be surprised if this causes delays that are felt into next year. Easily.

    Damn that's too bad, but better safe than sorry in situations like this.

    Goodsmile Company already issued a statement saying all their products will probably have 2 to 3 month delay thank to the virus. Guess I'll likely have to wait a bit more time before I get my hands on the stuff I pre ordered.

    Maybe companies will just release pictures on social media instead. At least that way they might actually be decent quality snaps.

    I’m in favour of any action taken to holt spreading of the virus. More countries need to lead by example and just shut shit down.

    Japan has already talked to the Olympic Committee about cancelling this year's Summer games too. Nuff said.

    “Corona virus” is actually one word. “Coronavirus.”

    Coronavirus is also a generic term for a type of virus spread by animals. This one is being called the novel coronavirus, or more accurately the SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2).

    I can't blame them in the least. Public health and safety takes priority.
