I'm increasingly getting fed up with the slow as fuck order turnaround rates that the US S-E site does. I should have just used the Japanese one through a relay service.
Like, the only value of the US shop is it's exclusivity deals. Outside of that, they're slow as shit to ship and overpriced to boot since they use UPS. They're slow because they essentially share stock with the Japanese S-E store, and until the Japanese store fulfills their allotment of orders and then reproduce the product for the US, the US store is always second to be settled.
Japan's gotten their new PAKs. Had them for about 2, maybe even 3 weeks. I just have no idea why this is taking so long, and the shipping's not that much more expensive depending on what store you use and what shipping service they offer. Fedex is not that much more expensive than UPS.

Hey, hey, hey, hey...... What about us (however many of us there are) poor Australians huh?! We don't even exist in their eyes!!! It's so painful hearing about all this exclusivity aaaaaaaand I have no hope!
I'm pretty sure the ones that people have in hand now they bought at that online video game show event. I don't think any of the Square Enix stores have actually shipped anything, and their release date for the Hardedge Cloud is only listed as January I think (at least for the European one)
(only talking about the Hardedge edition here)
Though yeah, the Square Enix stores are crazy slow. Took so long for them to get their stock of the polygon figures, was delayed every month!
Their shipping costs are stupid high too. I think it'd probably be cheaper for me to buy the Hardedge Cloud from those ebay listings rather than the SE store.
You know, I know that's gonna be a popular one because horny, but the doll joints REALLY don't look good on characters without pants or sleeves. Cloud's probably gonna look better lol. I hope they use the blue dress on him.
