Lord have mercy look at that price tag! Fingers crossed our orders make the slip 🤞 Though I won't hold my breath 👀

Okay, I had a long chat with someone from Zavvi's support today and ... They're not canceling orders. I know, it's only a support person, so it's not 100% sure. Excerpts from my conversation:

Thanks for confirming this for us. I can confirm that the price you will pay for your Ghost In The Shell Motoko Kusanagi 1/4 Scale Statue is £234.99.

When I said that now it is much more expensive and gave the link:

This would be correct. For now, you are being charged the price showing on your order.

I further asked that the difference is huge. So it will be so cheap for sure?

Yes, I can confirm that the price on your order is the amount you will be charged. Is there anything else that you need help with? Thanks, Callum

Personally, I don't trust them: P

Yeah based on my dealings with Zavvi I wouldn't trust them even if their CEO promised me something directly to my face. Still, that's interesting to see.
Problem is they have a whole year to change their mind and cancel it any time so I still think the chances are slim. Worth a try though as I can't imagine being able to shell up the "proper" price for it!

Yeah, but if someone wants this figure, even if the original price is so huge, I will recommend buying 2 copies xD On Zavvi and normal store, ha ha.

There's always a chance. It was with a blu-ray set but when Garden of Sinners was coming out, I snuck in and placed an order that ended up being a ton cheaper than what it got sold as. They never corrected my order so perhaps they won't here. Of course it is a lot more expensive than my case but it may come down to how many orders they had at the cheaper price and how much they want to shift copies. That or laziness if it's too much of a hassle to fix. It's a lot of money to use, not so much to them if it's a single customer.

Fire Force Season 2 Part 1 available for pre-order at a very decent price from MVM:

Seems like they've lowered the srp from £39.99 on season 1 to £29.99 for season 2.
Probably means UP will have it for £16 - £17 when they list it.
Still a good price on AoL though!

Yeah they're matching Season 1 Part 2's SRP which was also £29.99.

Also worth noting that the Blu-ray only regular releases (Gleipnir, Infinite Dendrogram) for this Q3 have also seen a reduced SRP from £39.99 to £34.99, which makes discounts and sales a lot better.

wonder if this only affects part seasons, NGL S2 is still RRP £39.99

I guess we will know in a few months if orders are canceled as I can't see Zavvi going through with manufacture preorder allocation for a bunch of orders they will cancel.

If they do then its kinda worrying as it means Zavvi will be holding tens of thousands of pounds worth of stock they likely wont shift quickly. Yeh I know 1099.99 is retail price and not the price they paid, but I can't imagine this would be a cheap figure even on wholesale price

Nice price, series any good? looks like you can get Part 1 elsewhere to go with it, I'd guess they go together.

Apparently some kind of season 2 exists.

HMV were selling Season One Part 1 at the same reduced price (I picked both parts from their physical store). I haven't watched the series yet (backlog ಠ_ಠ) nor played the game adaptation so I have no idea how good Arslan may be.

Apparently some kind of season 2 exists.
I believe MVM released Season 2.

I enjoyed Arslan, a little while since I last watched though, I would probably say a similar series would be Yona of the Dawn, so if you liked that proabably a good bet that you would enjoy Arslan.

But you might be able to pick up Part 1 and 2 New from Ebay for reasonable similar or a bit lower prices (although I don't see much at the moment). Used to barely go for anything, as it was a unviersal release where they just had too much stock and could barely give it away.
But CEX still has Blu ray of part 1 and part 2 copies for 3 and 5 (or more likley 5 & 7 with postage)

And Yep MVM released the second season of Arslan and it has been in the Deals of the week and I think it was in the Christmas sale as well.
Second season is only standard edition in a blu ray case (I aquired an extra collector's editon of one of the part and stuffed season 2 in)

Any idea if this collection includes specials? Toradora!: SOS! Hurray for Gourmands, and Toradora!: Bento Battle?

UPDATE: It does. Sorry for asking a silly question before doing research 😓
