I ordered the original Figma Onoda Sakamichi figure (not the reissue) way back last fall. [url=http://goodsmile-global.ecq.sc/maxfigwd00238.html]Good Smile Company actually shipped the figure to other stores in January 2015, and he's mostly came in-stock and went from most stores now and is sold out.

I don't usually complain because CR's prices are the best, but CR is now four months late delivering the figure. I understand the port strike could have backed up orders for one month--maybe even two. But four? I E-Mailed CR support about my order and was told my order was guaranteed to come (eventually), but I don't see why it would be taking a third of a year to deliver my figure unless they're planning to stick me with the reissue that I didn't order.

Has anybody received their Figma Onoda from CR yet or heard when it's actually coming? Because if I'd have known it was going to be this late--or not coming at all--I would have ordered it somewhere else.

We're receiving a huge batch of items (which includes Sakamichi-kun) into our warehouse this week. I expect them to start shipping next week. It's a lot of items since we've had production delays alongside port delays, so I'm hoping they finish up by the end of next week or the following week.

I'm really sorry for the delays. It's unacceptable to be so late, but we are limited by the schedule our distributor has, and we've been sitting with our hands tied for a while now. I thank you so much for your patience on the matter.

P.S. I usually keep this thread updated for GSC products: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-893027/psa-good-smileutc-item-update-thread

You can always reference that for future products. ^_^

I have been waiting patiently as I can as well for the Onoda figure, I had a friend buy him this weekend at ACEN before I even got my pre-order which was disheartening I hope this does not happen again.

I sincerely apologize for the delay and I'm sorry you had to buy a copy at ACEN over the weekend. :/ We're constantly talking to Good Smile Company and UTC regarding these ridiculous delays so hopefully US fans won't have to resort to this in the future. OTL

I'm actually rather relieved to hear other people have been waiting with me! My boyfriend preordered Onoda quite awhile ago as an anniversary gift for me (which was back in January :P), and I have been annoying him constantly to check and see if he's shipped since then. But I'm not too mad about the wait, more nervous than anything! It seems like every time I order anything linked with Goodsmile Company I end up waiting an excruciatingly long time (my Cleaning Levi for instance was supposed to come in October and ended up getting to me at the end of January into February, after I had ended up seeing PLENTY of him on sale at a con I attended in October- grrr!) So if anything, I place my frustrations with GSC, not CR.

But regardless, thank you for the update! I am so pumped and excited to receive my little Otaku biker I can hardly wait!
