I know they've been discussed a fair bit, but I can't remember if it was in their own thread or not. They're based on a piece of fan art that was drawn specifically for the purpose of making statues, as far as I know. According to Good Smile, if they sell well, we might get nendoroids, which would be amazing, but I don't see these selling all too well 'cause the designs are kinda wack.

The art they're based on- http://mamitan.goodsmile.info/assets...JAMES-JEAN.jpg

I like the designs well enough, but I'm worried about the billowy bandannas. They seem like they're made to break off. =/

I made a thread here:
http://forums.thetechnodrome.com/showthread.php?t=49659

Anyways GSC posted something on it's FB page on Dec. 1:
"A quick update, we mentioned we were aiming for a November pre-order for the Leonardo Statue, but it's been delayed a bit while we solidify things on our end with his official release.

We'll be sure to update this page when his pre-order opens!"

If they had been made into Figmas instead, I'd be all over them.

Love the design of these (which is unusual, since my tastes usually run quite traditional), and they'd be a must-buy if they all had red bandanas & brown pads, instead of the cartoon colours.

Went up for preorder a few days ago... If you grab all 4 you can get codes to redeem a aluminium print of the art it's based off of. US only from the website itself though.

You probably won't find a better price than BBTS if it doesn't get put on Amiami. Even directly from GoodSmile it's still around $130 and you're going to pay more for shipping from Japan.

I just put in a preorder for both Mikey and Leo at BBTS this morning. Oddly, Michelangelo is listed as coming out in March and Leo in April. I have to assume that the listing for Michelangelo is wrong though.

Preordered! I would love to have all of them but I'm just going to stick with Mikey due to the costs.
