Depending on how long the shipping from Japan takes, as with all imports.

He's a new character, not actually Prime (or Convoy or whoever). He has a SODA GUN. And a BOTTLE STATION. And his mission is to satisfy peoples' thirst. He was CREATED to do that like some sort of Roman-era SLAVE.

Nothing that is so on-crack is boring.

It's actually kinda cute.

It's supposed to be a joke anyhow.

We have skinny anorexic sluts rubbing around on a car for a hamburger commercial and you say the Japanese are Crazy?

Now, if you woulda cited their nuclear-related human experiments circa World War 2 on Chinese POWs, I woulda called you crazy.

If you woulda cited our country's amnesty-granting in this incident of War Crimes in exchange for the experimental human data, I'd call the US crazy.

Should still be preorders. Official release date is December 28, which means stores will probably start selling it on on Tuesday.

Gotta love that packaging.

They've come a long way since "The Truth the eyes met before" and "More than meets teh eye".

And how many of them use original (i.e. self-taken) photos of the toy and its packaging rather than official stock footage or previously "leaked", blurry photos?

All I see are preorder auctions so far.

I did. I saw the auctions. And as I said, all of them are using stock photography. None of them is depicting the actual toy in hand. Therefore, all of them are still preorder auctions.

Don't think I don't know how to look up things on eBay, thank you.
