I pre-ordered the Luffy and Nami figures on here. It seems like Crunchyroll gets their stuff a month later than other sites though.



Most american retailers if not all American retailers don't sell newly released items in Japan because they are well... Newly released in Japan, not America. Crunchyroll is not unique because they get their stuff a month later. They are merely predictable and ordinary in this aspect. Amazon is another retailer I buy from that shares this in common. Amazon is a collaboration of many 3rd party American retailers. If you check these individual retailers you will see they are no different than Crunchyroll in acquiring these items to sell 1 month later. I cannot preorder from Amazon though so I choose to buy from Crunchyroll. So you are correct that Crunchyroll gets it's items 1 month later. But you are comparing it to Japanese retailers and not American retailers. Thats like someone in Japan acting surprised they didn't get a new iphone the same day as the United States.

This isn't a PoP figure, but I actually got my G.E.M. Aladdin figure 3 weeks before the estimate.


I was hoping to get my Vivi earlier seeing as it released in Japan in like January. Other places had trouble with Vivi as well though, like The Grandline Shop didn't send theirs out til about a week or 2 ago.

I was talking about other sites like AmiAmi and HLJ. They ship the figures earlier than Crunchyroll and you can get them sooner. Just look at the Mikasa RAH figure. Crunchyroll doesn't get her until the end of October while the other sites get her in July, then a second release in September and for some reason CR is charging more money for her.

Did you regret buying it all together, or just buying it from CR?

Buying it altogether including buying it from Crunchyroll, the shipping fees were quite high, and the DvD subtitles were terrible, maybe the translations were accurate but the way they put them together into the anime episodes were terrible.
