Good Smile unleashes a torrent of further delays


There'll be some space under the tree at Christmas

We should have known it was too good to be true. When Good Smile Company announced a very slim roster of delays just a few days ago, it looked like the company was on track for a remarkably punctual December. Turns out not so much, as a fresh press release today announced a staggering 19 figures delayed across GSC's various brands.

Sadly, the biggest delay may have hit the most anticipated product, as the company announced their much desired version of Tsukihi Araragi (and her alternate colour version) will both be delayed a whopping three months into March. The lovely Deep Sea Miku will be held back for two months while a plethora of other figures slip into January. Here's the full list:

Delayed until January 2014

Good Smile Company - Not-so-Blessed wooser Charm of Love
Max Factory - Momo Belia Deviluke
FREEing - Mei Misaki: Swimsuit Ver.
FREEing - Ichiko Sakura
Phat! Company - Minicchu IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls 02
Phat! Company - Yoshino
Phat! Company - Caster [Fate/EXTRA CCC]
Phat! Company - Nendoroid Etna
Phat! Company - Nendoroid Flonne
Penguin Parade - Petanko Saber
Penguin Parade - Petanko Rin Tohsaka
WING - Fiona: Shunya Yamashita ver.
Embrace Japan - Victorique
threeA - 3A x VALVe Portal 2 Atlas
threeA - 3A x VALVe Portal 2 P-Body

Delayed until February 2014:

Good Smile Company - Hatsune Miku: Deep Sea Girl ver.

Delayed until March 2014:

Good Smile Company - Tsukihi Araragi
Good Smile Company - Tsukihi Araragi: Alternate Colour ver.

It's a pretty bitter blow for anyone who was expecting one of these for Christmas. While GSC and its sub-brands produce a LOT of figures, to delay this many is pretty sloppy quite frankly, and doesn't reflect well on the company's planning ability. Here's hoping none of these guys/girls/robots slip any further.
