This figure has been haunting me for weeks, but its one 'flaw' is I've only seen this available as a PVC. either that or my Yahoo-fu has weakened over the years.

I must know: was this ever a kit? Or should I abandon hope now?

I believe that was only a pvc. about 95% sure

This *was* released as a kit way back in 2007 (I think around Feb?) Wonder Festival, but only 5 were made available before it was mass released as PVC. It sold out in less than 5 mins (The going price on YJA later was like 40000+ yen, and this is only a 1/7 kit).

I gave up looking about 6 months ago.

Hope abandoned.

unless you're willing to live with pvc-to-resin conversion from recasters, otherwise the likelihood of landing the kit is... well, zero.

If sero gives up, the chances are almost certainly zero ;)

besides, there was a vivid thread on gamerabaene's forums about recasts that had a lot of heated words that don't need to be repeated here. While production companies are known to double-dip on properties without paying royalties, there's no justification in gypping a manufacturing company directly either. The result will always screw the consumer in the end.

Deep down there's still an inkling of hope. :p

Well said on the PVC to recast issue. We get angry when kits get recasted so why not the same for PVCs? In both cases the sculptors are being affected negatively. That's why we buy originals in the first place right, to support sculptors?

Not that I'd buy PVCs, but hey.
