I was wondering about the figure dates on CR. the Shiro figure by kotobukiya is supposed to come out in october, but CR says it will arrive in Jan 2015. Is there a reason for this?

Good question!

Basically, other site such as AmiAmi get it from the distributors in Japan, while Kotobukiya US receives it and gives it to us. This way it's a lot cheaper to ship out and the savings are given to the customers.

I set the date primarily since we wanted to make sure that if it's going to be delayed, then we compensate. The original release for the US/UK/EU/etc is DEC-14. Hopefully we get it before Christmas season but I set it just in case we don't.

It was a hard decision to make personally. Hopefully we'll be able to get this to you before Christmas.
