Not sure what is going on. In one mail recently, LINE decided to postpone the Pop-up Store without a date. Now, I received an email to say that it will be opening on the 30th April 2014 to 22nd May 2014 at the same venue – Grand Steps of Wisma Atria.
The reason why I am posting this information is because I know there are true LINE fans who wanted the LINE dolls. And in the latest Press Release, it added more information on the pricing and also added information like the limited collection UT (Uniqlo graphic T-Shirt) designs (in May) that will be made available for sale.
Read the Press Release for more details.
