Altines was re-released earlier this year, so you may have missed your chance on that one. At least the Mandarake prices are pretty reasonable for her now, if you can spot one in-stock.

I thought the rereleases were announced after that (the one that also showed the year-end rereleases Eukrantem, LE Eukrante and LE Ianeira).

Altines and Altlene were originally announced for re-release last year, for a release early this year (I think February was the original planned date), with a minimum number of preorders required before they'd commit to actually doing the release - Altines hit the minimum, Altlene didn't.

After a bunch of delays, Altines was eventually re-released in... July, I think? And then at some point they quietly slipped Altlene up on the KonamiStyle store for another re-release next year, and announced the Eukrante and Dengeki Eukrante/Ianeiria re-releases.

Altlene's was cancelled - Altines' went ahead (there are people just a few pages back in this very thread talking about receiving theirs from the re-release).

Just to fill in some blanks, Yeah Altines was released this past July (I got mine in early August). She was to be released in April but the Japan earthquake pushed her release date out. Basically if Konami received 2500 orders they would produce her and Altlene. Altines (who was originally an exclusive to begin with) easily surpassed it but Altlene (wide release) did not. Also Eukrante failed to reach her goal. I guess Konami decided to release them despite their poor poll results.

Looking at the sold out listings, Mandarake's prices for Altines seem to have stabilized at around 8k yen now that the rereleases are in circulation, which isn't far off what you would have paid via a proxy anyway, so that's a good option if you can manage to snag one before they sell out. Best to get in quickly though, as the prices are likely to only go upwards as time goes on.

What is a reasonable price for Altlene then considering the reissue is coming soon?

And is the helmet included with the re-issue?
