If I didn't care about the feed why would I bother to open it? I know they were showcasing the exhibit of Bunny Chris and it also mentioned something about figFIX so I just scrolled through the images and that specific one caught my attention because it had both of them in it.

Tell your world is really, really nice. One of the few vocaloid songs that isn't infinitely better when sung by a real singer IMO.

The New York expo has a gallery display on the first floor and the GSC shop in the second floor.
The second floor opens next friday at noon, concert is at 8pm.

Get there early and wait for the figures.
>>
>>115141150
GSC cancelled so many online pre-orders to fill up the expos of California and New York. Even savvy buyf/a/gs got theirs cancelled.

The Cali expo sold out and so will the New York one. I'm pretty sure GSC will let the japs have theirs first before they ship out to the rest of the world.

But with the halloween hype coming up expect to see that little $45 nendo to skyrocket to $100. It's already selling out for $85 on MFC.
>>
>>115141396
I figure I'm in the minority in that I tend to prefer the vocaloid versions of most songs. Shinkai Shoujo and Jishou Mushoku are the only two I can think of off the top of my head where I actually like the human singer more

if you're near it and like vocaloid I'd say drop by. If you're, say, two hours out and/or don't really like vocaloid, I'd say skip it.

They have to, they know there are people outside of japan who are willing to pay to see Miku and buy merchandise.
They will probably do tours in europe first, and maybe in latin america, but they are bound to be back in the states at some point; LA and NYC are the top cities, but maybe they will do some other major cities later.

>>115142030
>GSC dropped the ball hard
No. The concert in Anime Expo years ago was a test run to see if they could sell concert tickets. This CA and NY expos are to see if they can sell figures. They clearly underestimated the demand for anime figures in the States.

Expect to see an American GSC branch opening soon, or an even friendlier GSC online store.

Also, don't forget that Japan just invested 4billion yen into their "Cool Japan" initiative to expand Anime into the entire world.

"okay, we sell stuff online that we make to order. lots of people buy it. we even have metrics as to how many are buying it in each country"
"let's completely ignore those metrics for miku expo"

even if they got overwhelmed there is no excuse for not reserving stock for both days or limiting one and then maybe unlimiting it the next day. I've seen other companies loosen their limits on successive days

GSC != Crypton btw

Even a big company like GSC would run into shortage if they are asked to produce 10,000 Halloween Miku nendos.
Have you seen their GSC tour videos? There are only 20ish employees painting and detailing.

Also, like the other anon said: Maybe they are learning from Toei. Create something very popular and sell in small quantities. Toei has managed to stay in business for almost 40 years with that marketing scheme.

my point is not that they should have had enough stock on hand because that takes time and they didn't have the luxury to build to order like they do with their WF orders but that they should have known better to reserve stock. Even if they only had 500 total and that means 250 for each day that's better than selling all 500 in one day. I go to SDCC and companies there are smart enough to not sell their entire allotment on day 1.
