I managed to use a coupon with my pre-order, which I thought was great at the time, but turns out it shouldn't have worked and the store owner thought my order was cancelled because of it but apparently never was. They only had one Ciri ordered from Sideshow and someone else must've taken my order since they thought my order was cancelled. I'm assuming they shipped Ciri out to the other customer and they only sent me the cancellation email today when they realized what had happened. It really sucks especially since Ciri was the first high end polystone statue that I was interested in getting. At least they immediately sent me a refund but it still sucks.
Awww what a bummer. I would be pissed. Hopefully you get her on day. They redid Yennifer and Geralt in 1/4 so I have hope that they do another Ciri in 1/4 with alternative outfit or a 1/3 Ciri. Fingers crossed.

Although her alternate outfit is cool, I really wanted Ciri in her default outfit since that's my favorite look for her. I'm doubting Prime 1 would do another 1/4 Ciri in her default outfit though so I'm putting all of my hopes in a 1/3 Ciri at this point, even though I didn't want to get any 1/3 scale statues since they're so big. Maybe it's not all bad that I missed the 1/4 Ciri since she did suffer from a lot of issues so I'll try not to dwell on the disappointment for too long haha.

After going all in on the 1/4 line, I really wish they'd tell us if they're planning on releasing a 1/3 Yennefer, Ciri, and Triss to go with that Geralt...

And the EX is 350. I hope she turns out well. That is pretty nuts on low edition sizes.

ES = Edition Size - the amount of statues produced by the collectibles manufacturer.

EX = Exclusive, refers to a super special version of the statue which may incorporate additional special features, such as an alternative head sculpt. Normally the EX has a lower ES than the regular statue.

Wow, that doesn't get my hopes up for a 1/3 Yennefer.

Warning - Conspiracy Theory:

So, I was wondering why P1 would treat such a lucrative license as The Witcher so badly. Especially those "easy sell" characters like Ciri or Yenn. I noticed that there are other manufacturers making Witcher figures (in smaller scale) like cheap plastic hobbies - but they have essentially the same pose as the P1.

It's clear that CDPR released a general render that was sent to each manufacturer under license and according to the scales they are allowed to produce. I wonder if this is what has lead to P1 attitude. Essentially a lack of creative license, and a way to really distinguish themselves from the competition.

Sure, you can argue that the bases on P1 are more intricate then cheaper, smaller competitors......but lets be honest, who buys these figures for the bases?

I like the Prime1 base of the Witcher series. But if the statue I get deviates too much from the prototype, I'm out.
I really hope Yen looks as good as here prototype and hope for a new Ciri
