Lately, I’ve been reading many post from various bloggers about their current preorder list which includes early 2009 releases as well. With the current economy at it’s present state, it surprises me where not many people’s list are affected. I kinda find many people are buying more or they don’t need to cutback at all. I’m not complaining but just surprised that’s all. lol
Unfortunately, this economical crisis has affected my spending spree significantly and the biggest hit is my preorder list. It was just yesterday I made my 3rd round of cancellations over a 2-3 week period and it just pains me to click on the cancel button. T_T
So who got cut? Hit the jump to find out.

Nendoroid Midarezaki Kyoka
Very cute but not enough to make me keep her in.
She was gonna be my first nendo saber. T_T
It was a tough choice between the nendo version and the figma version (honest ^^). But, as I’m a figma otaku, I went for the figma version. But really, I want both. T_T
If I can find her on my trip then I would bring her home. If I don’t then it’s bad luck for me. -_-
Doing the math, I don’t find she’s worth 100AUD which includes shipping.
She was tough choice overall because canceling ‘two-piece’ figures are rare for me. T_T
Two of the most toughest choices. I just can’t afford to start on another complete series. Maybe when the Aussie dollar rises again, but who knows when. T_T
Was just gonna get her on a whim because I got Kanu and the idea of seeing these 2 dueling each other looked interesting. I guess that won’t be happening anymore. T_T
The next line up are the ones still on my preorder list. These are the ones I really, really, really, really want and no whatsoever crisis or situation will make me stop having them. Well…. if it’s a life or death situation, then that’s a different story. lol
She is just too damm good to pass up. Her pose is dynamic and the detail of her armor and sword is just magnificent from the promo pictures.
Not only the quality is great but the pose is just too eye-catching to pass up. It’s like she’s actually showing you her pantsu. xD
Noel, u should reconsider and put her back into ur list. xD
I thank Kotobukiya for doing a re-release. I missed her out on the 2nd or 3rd run ( I can’t remember ) but I’m damm straight not missing her in this run. It could be the last re-release ever.
Besides, M12 never stops talking about her. I can’t tell if it’s love or just over obsessed? >_>
I’ve watched the OVA but haven’t started on the series yet but she’s already one of my favourite characters. Nendo holding petit guns is my style. xD
Again, too damm cute to pass up and besides, it’s Yoko and she will be my first Yoko figure. ^^
figma Asakura Ryoko School Uniform Ver.
As I’m dedicated in collecting the whole figma Haruhi set, I cannot pass her up. Even though she’s not my favourite character, the group will feel empty without her. :)
figma Takara Miyuki Winter School Uniform ver.
She is just too moe to pass up and again, I’m dedicated in collecting the whole figma Lucky Star set so she is a MUST HAVE!!!!
figma Shana Flame Hair ver.
Last but not least, I chose her over the nendo one. I’m also getting the Black hair version as well which is kinda pricey but at least I don’t need to go on a ebay hunt and fork out a ridiculous price for her.
That’s it from my list for now. I have 3 figures incoming this month and I hope they arrive before I go on my trip. Considering no one will be home in the morning, I don’t wanna come back and deal with a missing parcel. -_-
So who else preorder list is affected by the economical crisis?
