Paid $300-something for a perfect grade Strike Gundam, and $3.50 for his girlfriend

I wonder what the falcon means with official announcement? Any chances for a little discount for mystery code holders? Blink

Let's see if it was a good idea to pre-order that little thing already.

So you did the dive and pre-ordered?

This is where I put my signature, right?

I am one of those who are more poor than rich and then jump into a plane, spend almost 1000 Euros to get to Siberia just to visit a girl for one week. A funny story after all it was.

Yepp, I dived in. I did far more stupid things in my live but always funny which I can't regret.

Great times.

If people really want one, better to do I think.
Maybe the price drops, or maybe not. It will be shipped in December 2016 or maybe not.
But what if it does? Let's say maybe 200 bugs less, shipping in December, gives 10 - 12 months to save up the money where you can decide to cancel the entire thing and buy your girlfriend some new lingerie or lingerie for yourself if you prefer that.

If you take all possibilities into account why not safe one by pre-ordering it, because it really looks handsome, and risk to lose 100 bugs or get one of this models. I don't like to gamble but in this case...

I suggest a Assault Rifle replica and a Gallente merc in medium gear with federal marine skin next.
About the last CCP should talk to Sideshow. I regret that I never had a chance to get a Darth Talon figure from them. Cry

The more expensive it is, the more exclusive it is. Consider a "for plex" price as well?

I'll wait for it to drop to 75% off like oh, I dunno, every other EVE-related physical good.

Not even digital items bundled with the sales, that's dissapointing. I would suggest the Sterling Matte Black blouse and some of the left / right side cybernetics that are still unavailable.

Or hey, I dunno, an exclusive Nyx SKIN.

C'mon CCP let's make some sales.

So, according to Mr. Peter de Leon, from the sales department at Triforce, $1800 is the correct price.
$2000 was the placeholder price when the side was tested.

Just wanted to share my knowledge whit those here interested. I got this clarification via e-mail from Mr. de Leon.

Well, now it's up to everyone him or herself if to buy it or not. You can also go for a TRI-PAY plan and aquire the ship by 3,4 or 6 monthly payments or discuss an other option.

If it's about me, I pre-ordered one and go to save the money up until December 2016 and decide then if to complete the purchase or not.

Have a nice day and fly save.

Interesting. Sadly, my personal cut-off point for models is at around 100$, so I'll wait until the price drops to that.

You're dreaming buddy.

I work in hydraulics manufacture and I will tell you right now that a perfectly balanced 3d model accurate to minute detail with inlaid electronics and magnetics would cost the manufacturer a good $400-600 to make just in labour.

With that being said, an option to purchase via PLEX should be available, if it's not already present.

Also my IRL guristas jacket when?

Was pretty much expecting this to be the case to be honest. Was a nice idea and definitely considered, but not at that price. I like EVE, but not that much.

An exclusive Nyx skin would... actually be pretty damn cool. I'd consider it, if it was baller enough.

For much less money than that you can buy (through plex) a real Nyx, which can be useful to help your alliance, and does not take any space in your house.

Oh, that's a great idea. Maybe toss in a gold magnate as well.
