A lot of times the figures get shipped on separate ships.....Rikka and Sinon are through Kotobukiya and I usually schedule it an extra month out just in case. The dock situation is exacerbating the situation significantly, so Kirito was suppose to get in a while ago....

Random fact: Koto US and UTC are in fact the same company haha..../sigh I just want figures to be on time. :< I'm as frustrated as you guys....

You sure on that? UTC seemed to be more of a Good Smile Company than Kotobukiya. It be weird for Kotobukiya to own a distribution company that sells Good Smile product.

Also just seen that the ETA on the Kirito figma has been changed to 3/31/15. Since Sinon and Rikka will be coming shortly I am not too upset about this anymore. Hopefully the dock situation will get resolved soon so problems like this won't happen much anymore.

I am 100% sure on that. Koto US is not Kotobukiya. Koto US and UTC are both partially owned by the same person. Koto and GSC own each of the other halves of each of the companies.
