The tissue box holder is perhaps the greatest incarnation of Rush ever. And thanks to Big Bad Toystore
, folks living outside of Japan can get their hands on it. Starting today, BBTS has it up for pre-order
for $108.99 US. It's estimated to arrive in September.
Expensive? Yes. Worth it? That's up to you. If the jumbo E-Can pillow
is any indication, Rush could well end up becoming a collector's item.
Yeah, no. I think I'll pass. How the heck does ANY merch make sense at that price point? I could get someone on deviant art to commission a plushie for easily less and get the same darned thing.ReplyDelete
ECapcom, plush merch is sold in limited quantities. It's going to be a collector's item.Delete
$109+ dollars is entirely too much for a plushie with a compartment for tissue paper. Enough said.ReplyDelete
He's cute though! I would definitely consider buying it at a lower price point.
I am really hoping for a North American release. That's what I really hate about importing from a deputy service or buying imports from an American company; you have to pay for all that extra malarkey just so these companies can make a profit and THEN pay for shipping (I would imagine shipping for this guy is not going to be cheap, unless it's included in that $109 price tag??). I do understand why they do that, but it's still irritating to know that. :\ A local release would take the strain off that price. But knowing Capcom and their bloated prices, probably not by much. O.oReplyDelete
Still, I am a collector and if there is not going to be a NA release, then I'll buy him by saving up for him. :D I don't think it's crazy. This little guy is probably one of the better merch releases. Besides, I see the pricetag inflating to something much more unreasonable in the future.

*Date not necessarily accurate.
Guys, $108.99 is merely what an importer is jacking the price up to. They retail for less than $50 (4800 Yen). Even @ $50, I'm on the edge, but I might go ahead and wait until one pops up for cheap on YAJ.ReplyDelete
This is hideous; I didn't see nothing cool on this type of merchandising. Look at how ridiculous is this tissue holder. C'mon guys....ReplyDelete
