Not unusual, actually. They post pics as soon as they get 'em in...

yeah, but it's annoying sometimes pre-ordering stuff when you have no idea what it looks like

So don’t preorder them? They’re not anything super exclusive so you don’t need to worry about missing out on them.

Hear! Hear! They don't cost much, and if you're worried that you already have that mold, wait until you see a photo...

ok you're right. Crazy that someone might want to see a photo of something before they buy it. What was I thinking. :roll:

I think the point has been missed but that's ok.

Yeah, for the most part. They’re the same molds as the older figures just with different paint applications.

Yah, the Geigan re-paint puts one in mind of the old SOC Death Trigger Gigan...

Yeah, but we had pictures, right? We already saw the promo pics- in fact, seemingly the same pics from the website- on the teaser for them, and then we've seen photos of the figures on display.

This is important news. Thank you, Jomei's Tumblr.

Those links won't load on my slow-ass phone, though, so before I get excited... is this thing regular price for this line, or are they going to jack up the cost because it's a special edition figure?
