I think this is more news-worthy than General.
If I had forty bucks I'd totally order that. The dragon on top of Magus' castle is so cute!

Yeah, I'd say this is worth a front-page shout out. I'm not familiar with the collectibles scene at all so I'm gonna sound like a N00B, but is "Entertainment Earth" a legit/trustworthy place to buy from? Is it the biggest-name outlet that has the Chrono Trigger figures for pre-order, or is there an even bigger-name outlet the Compendium can cite?

Entertainment Earth has handled several Square-Enix related figures, such as Final Fantasy, Kindom Hearts, Full-Metal Alchemist. As well as several Star Wars, Star Trek, DC and Marvel Comic characters. http://kotaku.com/5512577/chrono-trigger-figures-from-six-months-in-the-future I don't know how safe they are though :p They seem to be rather popular though.

Neat! I also wish I had 40 dollars to spend on one.

I actually didn't notice that. SUCKS. I love Marle.

I hate that XD. But hey, it might make them a lot of money. It reminds me of a lot of figurines. There was a set of King of Fighters figurines where a lot of the girl ones had fan service poses, and it was pretty stupid to me considering that a lot of those characters were really boyish characters and it didn't make sense for them to be taking their clothes off and posing.

There were tons of fanservice figurines like that at Sakuracon, actually. Some of them were quite beautiful. Even for boyish characters, the posing figurines are very pretty. I'd like a few myself.

Maybe because in the other non boob pointing picture, she is getting everyone coffee/tea/elixir. Why is the princess getting everyone drinks? O I GET IT, BECAUSE SHE A GIRL SHE HAS TO SERVE EVERYONE! GET BACK IN THE KITCHEN!

A lot of conventions have vendors who do that illegally. For example, I know there is always one guy with a master sword replica, as well as final fantasy weapons. They aren't suppose to be selling those replicas, since they are based on a existing IP they do not have any rights too. I remember one Animation Studio was pissed for a while at all of the unlicensed merchandise based on their series.

You forgot the most awesome imagery Marle is connected to: the NA cover. Maybe they didn't know since they just had the chibi cover art for the Japan release, but Arc Impulse/Frost Arc looks pretty cool...And I like the snow gear too.

Finally!

I've been looking for a set of Chrono figures to point out the fact that Marle isn't there!
