So I've been dying to ask this all weekend but wasn't sure who or where to post the question to on these forums.

Is TFSOURCE still going to be at Botcon next month?

I'm assuming yes because they still have plenty of officially liscensed inventory to sell other than 3rd party items, but then again I wouldn't be surprised if there is some political drama going on behind the scenes that might have offended TfSource as well.
I even went to the trouble to try and find a phone number on their website again just to doublecheck that there wasn't one hidden there somewhere (as with last time no luck). I still don't understand why any company in business wouldn't have some type of public phone number available for customers. Just strikes me as kinda odd, but thats a subject for another thread. So is TFSource still confirmed? Anybody know?
I know their not the be all/end all of the community but I was impressed with their spread back at Botcon 2010 and was really looking forward to checking out the TFS booth again this year. I'm one of those types that appreciates being able to look at something and check it out in person before I buy it.

They will be there, I've been in contact with them regarding this.

JPY 8,800 converts to roughly $105.53 USD. I've seen two Japanese distributors giving pre-order discounts, but since I'm still not completely savvy with International shipping rates to the US, I can only guess that if I order from a foreign store even with a discount, all costs (including the shipping) will almost equal TFSource's asking price.

So, it's a nice figure, but I'm not $100+ interested in it.

I can get foreign figures a little bit cheaper locally, but I didn't expect that she'd be twice the price of a figma or a MG Gundam kit.
