seeing little miss "need for SPEEEEE~EEEEEEEEEEEEEEDo!" on here http://i.imgur.com/MwdzE.jpg I'm sure also pushes that irritable "WHY IS THERE NO NEWER INFORMATION!" feeling.

I see that the thread has been updated and my heart fills with hope, only for it to be dashed once again.

I'm incredibly new to the Shinki scene, so saying how much I like these two would be pointless; however, once these figures *do* get released... where would one find them? Is there a particular store that you guys use, or would it mean another conversation with a proxy?

Heh. We really need to get that FAQ out.

The typical three sources that we tend to recommend are these. They each have their pros and cons.

1: Amiami - Online Japanese store that ships to foreign addresses. Has pretty good discounts on the figure itself, but the shipping can be high.
2: HLJ - Another store. They dont offer the same discounts on the figure, but the shipping tends to be cheaper when buying lots of stuff at once.
3: Mandarake - Kind of an oddman, as it's a 2nd hand goods store that ships across the globe. If you dont mind a bit of box damage, the usual reason a Shinki shows up on mandarake, it's a good way to get a shinki fairly cheap although it's often the luck of the draw whether you'll actually get something. They dont update the website in real time, and they're listing product in actual stores, so something could be sold out before they process your order. On the other hand, you can also get Shinkis here that are sold out elsewhere.

Now, this advise only really applies if the two are a general release. If they're a Konamistyle release, you either need to cross your fingers that someone decides to sell them on Mandarake, or you need to start talking with a proxy.
