Hey everyone, not great news this time.



Due to a recent development, we're unable to fulfill orders for the G.E.M Angewomon & Hikari figure. The manufacturer, Megahouse, has halted production of the figure and is no longer providing it to North American and European retailers.

This cancellation came at the order of the original rights holders. They wanted to market Digimon as a child-friendly property, and though this Angewomon figure wasn't appropriate for that image.

We'll issue a refund for all orders--once we make the refund, it normally takes 3-5 business days to reflect in your account.

If you ordered the bundle set, we will notify you to check if you would like to still keep Angemon &Takeru.

If you have any questions, please contact us via the HELP/FAQ link at the bottom of any Crunchyroll page, and we will answer them to the best of our ability.

We are really sorry for the inconvenience as we know many people were looking forward to the figure.

They do realize there target audience is older people who grew up with this show kid dont even know about this show cause its not on any more but i guess if they want to keep making the same crappy detailed figures that nobody wants and not make any money then i guess they have no business sense

I'm assuming other G.E.M Digimon products like Garurumon will be canceled last minute too. How can I cancel my Pre-Order and get a refund on that order?

Well that's stupid. They never edited Angewomon's outfit when the show aired here so why is it an issue now? Not like some 10 year old would have the cash or the credit card to buy the figure anyways.

It would have been nice had they decided this months ago. Now it's probably impossible to find it in another store. I know it's not Crunchyroll's fault but... Damn it.

Let's say I want to keep the Angemon and Takeru figure. What happens to the rest of my preorder?

Now all the hype I've had for this figure over the last few months is dead...

This is so stupid.

Dear Saban / Bandai (US / EU rights holders of Digimon), no child is buying a $100+ figure of a character from a series from 15 years ago. Get real. Your core audience for digimon is not children, it's teens, young adults, and adults who grew up watching the show 15 years ago.

Oh no, we can't have cleavage showing. Think about the children!! Give me a break. Look at today's kid shows. Sexualized everywhere, but a figure which is clearly marketed toward the early generation of digimon fans is where you draw the line?

They had MONTHS to deny this release. They chose to deny it this late in the game. Shame on you Saban / Bandai. These passive aggressive tactics are insulting to both your audience and business partners.

So dumb.

I am absolutely furious.
Not at the distributors, but at this whole licencing bull.
This figure was $120+, no child can even afford it. Just censoring everything like they always do.

It there anyway to know when companies or stores are going to go along with this censorship? Because i want to make my preorders at places that will fulfill them because of the customer make the choice to shop there, not because we are being generalized as a buyer market thus have these chances of being crossed out because of censorship or marketing strategies?

I suppose i should order anything that seems relatively risque from other sites from now on?

Hope to hear some sort of input about this, thanks in advance.

This is ridiculous! It's not CRs fault, but come on? Now I have to pay over inflated prices because of this! It's already over 250$ CDN equivalent on other sites!

I'm extremely disappointed, and although I am not cancelling my pre-order for Angemon and T.K., I most definitely not buy anything again from the crunchyroll store unless cx service steps in and pays my difference for this pre-order fiasco!

Ridiculous! Just unbelievable!

I think I'll feel most sorry for Megahouse if they were told this late in the game. But from the sound of it, they knew beforehand and chose to only make stock for the fans who ordered in Asia. This whole debacle is disappointing and proves they cannot be trusted.

I was so hyped to be getting this figure since I recently went back and watched the first two seasons two years ago. I even just got a new shelf for both angewomon and angemon; and now that one is canceld I don't even want the other one.

So angry at the guy (who obviously has no idea how Digimon has been marketed over the past year or so) that made this decision.
