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.


The request was specifically for the overseas markets. The figure will be sold without restrictions in Japan itself. Megahouse (Bandai) tried hard to convince the original rights holder, but was unsuccessful.

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!


No store in North America will be available to provide you with a legitimately imported item in this case. Anything that ends up on Ebay or other websites will either be bootleg or a resale from Asia at double the regular price.

So angewomon on ebay if it is double than original price will be an asian fake, even from a japanese seller who says its the authentic japanese version?

Yes, you did say that. And no that is not true. There are people from japan selling the item off of ebay for over 200 and are shipping the real thing. I purchased mine from japan seller for 170. Will be japan authentic not bootleg or asian resale.

Because kids are lining up to spend $100+ on a figure to sit on a shelf. And parents totally want to spend $100+ on a figure to sit on a shelf, or for their 5 year old to snap in half playing with as if it was a toy.

Oh wait.

Maybe invest in the toy market if you want to actually aim at kids? Because all Digimon has gotten there are some pretty crappy looking Fusion related things these days. And I like the designs of Fusion digimon but those toys look like Happy Meal items.

Whoever made this decision, needs let go. They are ill equipped to run a business. They are woefully ignorant of how business works. This is the most ridiculous thing in recent memory.

I'm still a little vague on one point here. When you say the request was from the "original rights holders," are you referring to a Japanese or a Western company? The wording allows for interpretation either way, and I'd like to know whether this is a Japanese company pulling the plug or outside influence?

The original rights holder for anime properties is Japanese in about 99% of the cases.

you made it sound like you were specifically talking about china. That's basically where you will find bootlegs. as for the price hikes you will find that due to items being hard to find and out of print and mainly everything costs more no matter what it is. she pretty much sold out on pre-order from every japan store I've come across online Play-asia says they have a stock coming in tomorrow. but expect to pay more than 100 for her. they have angemon for 170 before shipping. She would probably be around the same and then something like 20 dollar shipping or more.

I was wondering where you get your source about megahouse (Bandai) trying hard to convince original rights holders. I haven't read that anywhere. If you have a source please share a link with us.

I know other forums people are telling people to write complaints to Bandai about not allowing angewomon to be sold outside of japan.

there is also this site who says pre-order can be taken up to march 1st, but don't know how reliable the source is. to me it seems kind of sketchy.

I responded to the email saying that I do want to keep my TK and Angemon statue. I did eventually find Kari and Angewomon from another website so I was able to get her back. Now my question is, how do I know for sure I still have my TK and Angemon statue still ordered? Also where can I see that I was refunded for the other?
