I want my Bear!

This is sort of a store question.  I bought the Minimoto starter, and I wanna expand to 100 Rice, but nothing is in stock.  I purchased some Ronin for this, but still waiting for them.  Question is twofold.

1) Is there any way to know when things get restocked in the store?


2)If I placed an order with Kimiko Hoshi, who is on preorder, and a bunch of other things... am I going to have to wait until she is released to get everything else?
