Leona Morimoto Polystone Figure

Japanese manufacturer Q-Six has started preorders for a Leona Morimoto figure made of polystone. The blonde dominatrix hails from the Discipline animation series where she heads a powerful club on the campus of Saint Arcadia Academy.

Leona measures 18cm or 7.08" tall from spiked heels to the top of her white bow. She sits spread-eagled on a sculpted chair made of a single piece of red PVC and gazes slightly askew from her seated position. With the exception of her gloves and thigh-highs, Leona is basically naked and wields a riding crop in her hands to mete out the proper amount of discipline. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late December 2006.

Super Robot Wars Huckebein Boxer

In the Super Robot Wars universe, the Huckebein is a mech based on Gundam design conventions that originally appeared in Super Robot Wars IV for the Super Famicom. After a series of incarnations, the Mark III version of the Huckebein debuted in Super Robot Wars Alpha (Playstation) with a Boxer suit kit bolted onto its exoskeleton.

To celebrate the mightiness that is the Huckebein MKIII, Kotobukiya has started preorders for a model kit which measures 23cm or 9.05" tall when fully assembled. Pricing is set at JPY6800 or US$65 from NCS and delivery is scheduled for mid-late December 2006.

Animal Crossing Bottle Strap

In the online tag mode of Animal Crossing, players may buy a message in a bottle from Tom Nook's establishment and send it to other online towns. Yujin takes the communiqué literally and presents a collection of Animal Crossing character straps + bottles which may hold tiny messages and perhaps bits of sand or salt. Each animal and bottle measures 21mm or 0.82" tall and eight styles are on offer to ship in mid-late January 2007. NCS will bundle the eight straps together and supply them as complete sets. Preorders are welcome starting today.

Front Mission Trading Arts Plus Stage 2

Preorders are welcome for a new collection of detailed Front Mission Wanzers from each of the five canonical games in the series. In addition to normal paint versions of the mechs, metallic paint variants are also randomly packaged in the blind boxes. Pricing is set at JPY680 (US$6) each or US$55 per factory sealed case of 12. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late October 2006.
