    Saw some preorders pop up for SOC GX-71. Not sure if recent or not. Nippon-Yasan and Nin-Nin Game. $370 and $298 respectively. Didn’t see any preorders that are in the states.....or did I miss the boat again?

    Domestic pre-orders haven't gone up yet. The import sites put him up last night around 2am (and immediately sold out). I know because I was fighting every second to try to get my own secured. I did finally get one through anime export.

    AJ probably sold out as they have secondary pricing in the 44k zone.

    Suddenly I fear I may NOT be getting an SOC VV when preorders for that guy go up.

    I know they don't compare, I do, but I have the Minipla Voltron and the Playmates oversized and I literally have no use (or space!) for the SOC version. The vehicle Voltron, however, I do think I'll preorder because I don't have it in my collection and there's no guarantee that Playmates (or whoever obtains the license, right now) will produce it in the same size as the previous two oversized ones. (I do so wish they would, though.)

    Shame the series ended because they could've used that to produce the molds without issue. I'm hoping someone makes it and makes it an online exclusive of some sort. =\

    it's been up since earlier at that price, only slightly WAY cheaper than the price they have on the first run that (i hope) no one is biting on.

    Edit: damn $90,000 yen? i swear the original was cheaper than that this morning.

    Fucking reissue sold out fast. Did it even make it to when the west wakes up? I don't know why I expected different from the masters of manufactured scarcity.

    More than likely scalping. From what I understand they did the same thing to Getter Emperor once the other sites sold out.

    I can't believe there are some people that can hoard SOC considering it's price point.
    I can accept if a collector have 3 SOCs
    - mint condition
    - combined mode
    - lion mode

    But there are peeps even buying 6 units of SOC Go Lion.
    - 1 for display
    - 4 for storage purposes
    - 1 for profit

    fuckers...
