Pre-ordering this Elin is anything but a TERAble idea

Arcadia - Non Scale
TERA is a game that deserved a lot more than it got, both from players and publisher alike. But, before I get into a rant about that, let's take a look at Arcadia's lovely upcoming Elin Elementalist. We've seen her before, and now she's available to get your paws on--or at least to pre-order. Sadly she won't be gracing shelves until May, which is a long time to wait for a figure this lovely.
It's no secret that Elin ended up an extremely controversial topic, mostly for the proactive rather than reactive stance from En Masse in the first place, so it's easy to guess that reception to a very un-American version of these little foxes might be a bit mixed.
Personally, I love her, and I'd really like to get my hands on her. The pose is gorgeously dynamic, and the texturing and coloring are very vivid and well done. She's quite sizable as well, about 11" tall--which, as expected, comes with the hefty price tag of around ¥12,800. Even the most die-hard of fans such as myself might have a few qualms about that kind of dough.
