Howcome Bandai hasn't contacted Fanime about doing something like this, seeing that Fanime is the closest to the release date (May 29th)?

Since this is such a huge release, chances are that Fanime won't be able to arrange it to be moved up or have an exclusive release party.

So, we'll just have to wait until the tuesday after Fanime. >_<
