Two Figure Cancelations

We had suspected this for awhile, but we got the final word today from Atelier Sai that the two YUA figures that were originally due to ship in November have been formally canceled for export:

You're Under Arrest Miyuki Kobayakawa 1/8 Scale PVC Figure
You're Under Arrest Natsumi Tsujimoto 1/8 Scale PVC Figure

They would not tell us why (they never do) but there is speculation that since Section 23 licensed the Anime for US distribution Atelier was not able to obtain the proper licensing clearances authorizing these to be sold here in the US - and since we FOLLOW ALL the rules, we will not be able to sell these either. We will begin the process of canceling pre-orders for these today, and issuing any refunds if necessary.

Sorry folks, remember I'm just the messenger.
