So back in January I bought the daily deal Kirito and Asuna figma, they were meant to be released on the 31st of January but so far its the 4th of feb and my order has not been updated, and the listing still says pre-order.

I've emailed support to find out what's up with my order, but has anyone else got their order of Kirito figma yet?

I haven't received him yet, however I did message support and they said they're waiting on the manufacturer. Apparently they haven't received him from the manufacturer yet and eventually when they do get him they will ship him out to us. However they have no idea when they'll get him or ship him out.

Asuna will be released on a later date. Assume May-July release.

Just called Ultra Tokyo Connection and they told me that they are releasing it at the end of this month. Chances are that we will be getting the Kirito figma sometime in march.

oh wow, but then how come Amazon.com is selling it already if it's not been released yet?

Also in case anyone is interested, Chrunchy Roll emailed me from the support ticket I sent about the release, and they said they havn't got them yet, so it's not that anyone has been forgotten like I personally felt.

He has been released before, this is his re-release which other sites have also already gotten. CrunchyRoll receives their figures about a month or two later than other figure sites.

EDIT: I also don't recommend ordering the ones on Amazon or Ebay unless you're absolutely sure its the real one as there are many bootleg versions of him being sold on those two sites.

Asuna was released a few years back, Amazon is selling it for 200% more. Unless you want to pay $150-$200. This is a re-release so basically new production which "estimatedly" be ready by June-Aug.

Kirito re-release is now available in Japan last December, so it's all about shipments when will they arrive in the US and when will UTC will release it to CR or when will they ship it to you.

I wrote to the supplier and i got this reply

Thank you for contacting us at Ultra Tokyo Connection.

We sincerely apologize for the delays we have been experiencing
Unfortunately figma Kirito and multiple other products has been stuck at the LA port due to heavy congestion.
These products should be arriving fairly shortly, but due to current circumstances we cannot expect a specific ETA date.
Again, we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

Sincerely,
Ultra Tokyo Connection.

Hey guys,

Good to contact UTC on this. We're still waiting for confirmation, but the West Coast is seriously clogged with ships waiting to port.

Darn strikes....

But we will ship these out the moment UTC releases the stock to us (just letting you know, this was a HUGE A** order so we'll be beating down doors to get them out!)

Thanks for the reply! I am waiting for my Kirito order too and was wondering what was up. I'll wait some more (waiting for Saber 2.0 as well from you guys so hopefully you can ship them together or something)

blame the dock strikes, I don't live in the states so local problems like 'east coast dock strikes' and congestion don't make the news here so I've been reading about it, it looks like last weekend they closed the dock completely, and only this Monday started shifting imports again. so if you want to blame anyone blame the dock workers.

Well, there you have it... port congestion... *sigh*

I wish it's not going to be like this when they release Asuna...

How did this get so delayed? It can't be just the ports, since my Sinon and Rikka have arrived at the warehouse and are starting to be shipped. Those to figures had a estimated release date of 3/31/15. So what went wrong with Kirito? Is it just UTC? I seemed to never get anything on time when the order goes through them.
