Hi all!

So I got the announcement today about the Tiger & Bunny companions and dolls, and even though I've never heard of the anime (I should look it up sometime), I thought, "Hmm, awesome robotic looking people! Must have." emotion_dowant

But of course they're only available from Mecha Neko. Which you can only access if you're from the USA. I myself am from the UK, and therefor not allowed in. emotion_donotwant

So I was wondering if there was any other way of getting these items?

Yeah, thought so. What would I put in the search bar to get the companions?

Here is a list with links to each item.

A user by the name "Apprivoise" is also willing to help overseas users get the T&B items so try contacting her.

it's not bullshit, it's legalities, and it's not like Gaia wants to limit who can buy it directly from them either.

the issue has to do with licensing laws.

Viz is the company that has the license for this in North America and it's probably thru a deal with Viz they got the rights to release official Tiger & Bunny items. Viz would only have legal authority to authorize for money sales of the items in the US and MAYBE Canada as well.

because of this Gaia can only sell it for Gaia Cash inside the area Viz can authorize for money sales in. otherwise they could get sued for breaching copyright and licensing laws.

I'm sure Gaia would love for there to be a way to get worldwide sales rights for these items, but since they can't they're making them as accessable for everyone as they can. plus there are nice Gaians out there willing to help out those who can't buy directly from Gaia themselves without trying to sell them for the maximum profit possible.

Yeah, I thought there'd be some legal gumpf like that responsible; which is understandable, but still rather irksome.

no matter how much money you spend you can't expect Gaia to do something that would land it in legal trouble. nor can you expect them to pass up a chance to give users items they want just because they need to limit where they can be bought with Gaia Cash.
