besides more ttgl stuff... (there needs to be more nia stuff i can buy)
COSWORX - I would freaking love it if Cosworx had a booth. or more cosplayer-oriented dealers.
A Kotobukiya booth would be awesome too.
a kotobukiya booth would be AWESOME. i love their one coin figurines but the only chance i have at getting them is when they're at japantowne, and by the time i get there, its too late! :'(
but the thing is that.. i know kotobukiya only sells their products to retailers. which brings up 2 questions that i have.
1) do those one coin figurines ever get discontinued? (some websites say that they do not have it in stock/or it says "discountined" - does this mean they just haven't ordered anymore from kotobukiya's main site? or is it really discontinued from the time it was released? do they have reshipments and redisturbutions of one coin figurines occasionally? i kinda feel like they do with the tales series (abyss, symphonia)
and 2) how do we go about asking retailers (that show up at cons, in person and through websites) that we would like them to order this particular series/set? i know some websites have request kind of links where we can ask them to order, but even if it says on the website that its "discontinued?" what does "discontinued" actually mean and how does a figurine go to "discontinued forever" history?
sorrie if my questions are confusing. i have alot of questions about this whole figurine retail market and im not sure wheres the best place for this thread to be.
