ToLink Trademarked in EU

So a European trademark for smartphone game Tales of Link has appeared. Does this mean anything? Still not sure. I'll keep an eye out.

Mikleo and Edna figures announced, Colored Ludger Prototype

I'm trying a new thing--I'm gonna start covering figures from the Tales series from here on, so let's get to this (pictures taken from Dengeki, here and here)
At Wonder Festival 2015 Summer we got a look at more Tales figures to be released later.
First off, the Ludger figure by ALTAiR announced at Tales Festival now has a colored prototype:

Ludger is planned to release in 2016. Still no prototype of the Julius figure that was announced at the same time.

And as a continuation of the AlterxKotobukiya Tales of Zestiria collaboration that previously gave us Kotobukiya's Sorey figure and Alter's Alisha figure, a Mikleo figure by Kotobukiya has been announced, as well as an Edna figure by Alter. An uncolored prototype of Mikleo was shown, but nothing on Edna yet.

ToZ NA Preorder Bonus

Not too far behind the announcement of the Collector's Edition, North America's preorder bonuses are now listed on the game's Amazon listing.

According to the image (as well as the page), the bonus will be the legacy Mystic Artes for Mikleo, Lailah, and Alisha, along with the Tales costume set and the Tales weapon attachments.
