Getting her is not as easy as getting the other characters via pre-order.
They released this last February 2010 and since the whole licensing issue which affected my order with local sellers (a lot of local orders were canceled), I've been monitoring every possible website that re-opens this for order but it keeps disappointing me.
So, two (2) days ago, miraculously it was open for order at Hobby Search. The things I have to go through to get my brother to go home just to order for me to found out that it's sold out. I was partially depressed and decided to give up on it till that night, Pjal called me and informed me that the orders are open at AmiAmi.
Mind you, I was busy preparing dinner at that time that I dropped everything and went on making my order with my dad's laptop. I'd made separate orders for myself and Pjal and mind you, I got the confirmation the next day and made my payment for both with different shipping address. And the stock for Nendoroid Ritsu Tainaka went down till it's sold out in less than 30 minutes. It was crazy!!!
I'm guessing it would work since it worked the last time I made these kind of purchase.
But I guess it was too early to be excited when I receive an email this morning as follows:
Thank you for ordering with AmiAmi.
This mail is to inform you that your order 4711822 has been canceled for exceeding the purchase limit:
[Nendoroid K-On! Ritsu Tainaka]
If you have any questions, or concerns, please feel free to contact us here.
But I paid it yesterday already. So what happens now? *sigh.
This is the suckiest thing EVER! I hope this matter resolve soon.
Either Option 1: A refund or Option 2: Proceed with the order *sigh. I pray hard that it's option 2. At least it's easier. Going through refund phase is just too troublesome. *sigh.
Let us pray for a miracle.
An update: Option 1 it is. I got my refund already *sigh. Sorry Pjal.
