Thanks for liking our work.

As to your question, you may still pre-order it after we sold the item to the first 100 buyers, but the rest numbers (150) will not have our promotional deal.

Our promotional deal is only for the first 100 buyers: ($199.99 U.S plus shipping) + "A handcrafted gift"

If you have any questions regarding our products, you may also contact us through email: info@a-x-2.com

Love everything I've seen so far. Will there be any story info included with the packaging? I'm curious to know more about the world Rei exists in.

Anyway, can't wait to see the colored pics!

That was a one off I believe, it never went into production. However, I'm hopeful that as they expand their fanbase and grow we'll see a version make it to production eventually. One can dream anyway. :D

Right now, I just want to know when the rest of the Rei's go on sale, I missed it today as in my excitement I didn't realize it was in the a.m. and missed the sale by a good 12 hours. :(

Preordered! Will the figure be able to hold the gun? Hope it's not just a prop, or that would definitely disappoint a lot of people :doubt:

I've got to be honest here; the fact that the figure's price jumped up nearly $50 after the initial pre-order stock with free gift sold out has left a sour taste in my mouth. It feels like the latecomers are being charged a penalty for not being lucky enough to be in the top 100 and are stuck footing the bill for the "free gift" that those lucky few are going to receive. Now, plenty of companies do the free gift for the first 50, 100, what-have-you, but I don't generally see a huge (or any) price hike on the remaining stock and that's what I take issue with. I'm horribly disappointed by this practice from this company.

I've been watching and checking this thread regularly since it first appeared. I've sent links to it, the official blog and website to friends of mine and have looked over all the posted images frequently - to say I was excited about this release is an understatement. But that "penalty" charge and the idea that I feel like I am paying for someone else's "free gift" has put all that on pause and even though the figure is currently available, I believe I am going to have to pass.

Considering the first 100 sold out in about 5 mins and that the higher priced versions are still lingering in the store a couple days later, I'd wager it's safe to say that we're not the only ones to share this opinion.

Really bummed about how things with this company have turned out. The excitement is pretty much gone for me at this point. There had to be a better way to "cost-in" the free gift other than making those that werent quick enough to be in the first 100 pay for it. Ugh.

Please don't be disappointed! There will be rewards for everyone who came to our store to support us. We will make sure that each person who bought directly from our warehouse will get a reward and we will have an announcment about that sooner or later this week! :rock:

Does it come in BLACK?

Do you like to see Rei in Black? Here is your chance!

There will be some chase ver. Rei randomly insert within the rest of 150 pieces. This chase figure will come in black with more detail weathering.
(This special offer is only applicable to direct order through our online store.)

Considering that 100 ppl picked up Rei for $200 and got a "free" pair of shoes, whatever the reward is, it needs to feel like there's an additional $45 "value" and worth the extra cost to the customers.

Personally, I'll be looking forward to this announcement, and keep my Paypal handy just in case, because I really do love this design and if I feel like I'm getting a good deal, I'll happily give you my money. Right now I don't feel like that the value is there anymore with the 20-something % price increase, but I hope you can change my mind with this "reward".

lol, I know right? I think 1 3A is more than enough for me. Never dug the game they played with their drops, but I'd be a liar if I said that the allure of the chase didn't pique my interest some. Not sure if I'd actually dig the figure in all black, but the extra detail weathering does sound good. I'm curious how many of the chase version they'll be sneaking into the final 150.

Jumping topics just a bit, I was wondering if a "compensation" for the added 20% price hike could include being added to a special mailing list that'll get first crack at a (with a limit of 1 per person to keep flippers at bay) version of the next figure - kind of like, "okay, the first 100 got the extras this time, but next time, someone else gets a shot to keep it all fair and good!" That'd be cool, but not sure how practical that would be.

I'll say it again though, I really dig the design, specifically the head sculpt and weapons and I really want to see this company "make it". I think the price hike created a little backlash with some people (me included) but I do commend them for attempting to add some kind of "reward" to the remaining stock to increase our perceived value in proportion to the increased cost. They're making an effort and I do appreciate that.

Wasabi's anime cousin really did turn out very cool.
I'm more interested to see what they do next since the source of inspiration is pretty obvious. Very cool figure though for sure.

"Sorry, there are only 46 “BOOM! SERIES NO.2- 1/6 Rei” left. All others are either sold or being held in other buyers’ carts. Buyers have 10 minutes to checkout, after which it may become available again."
