Armored Franky: a peaceful figure!

Armored Franky is the last figure that a major part of collectors need to complete their Time Skip Mugiwaras Collection, however, Megahouse suddenly decided to release it as a SA Maximum classed figure, that's not illogical because when seeing that good quality and all the gadget exposed next to our cyborg we can hardly admit its expensive announced price (¥15750), but Megahouse didn't stopped there, in the last Jump Festa event, the figure manufacturer aggressively announced the Limitation of Franky...!

But, why Megahouse? Important character, best figure ever, expensive price, and Limitation? All people felt K.O. with that announcement, since Megahouse clearly said that Franky will be a Mekke/Megatreashop/Bandai Premium exclusive figure which will be hard to obtain with the standard price, unless we live in Japan... Some people already profited of the situation and started selling it for Maximum-crazy prices (for example at eBay, 420 US$!), some other third-party re-sellers also started to take full payment for it (¥17500) and it's crazy everywhere...

But today, a hero comes to save the humanity, I mean Animarket announced that they will be taking preorders for it, which means that we can get it for a good price! Which means that we are saved! And that's  not all, Abyss Corp, an official distributor of Toei and Megahouse products in Europe announced that they will get the distribution of Franky too, after all this series of good news, I wonder how Franky will be limited... It's not only Limited to Japan? I hope Japanese people will get him too...

Preorders for Franky will start February 15th, 2013. So people, get ready, set your plans, because it's a nice price we've got here to pay, and good luck!
