Every PS3 (20GB and 60GB) order submitted over the weekend up until this morning will be shipped today. Email notifications and tracking information have been mailed out to our customers as of yesterday morning. Please note that tracking numbers are generally activated after 7PM EST. If you did not receive the confirmation and you rely on Hotmail or Yahoo as your primary email account, please check your "Trash" folder since our email may have been forwarded to that folder.
Stock Situation: 20GB PS3 consoles are currently available for immediate shipment this afternoon but 60GB models are sold out as of the time stamp above. Due to the Thanksgiving holiday this week, please note that NCS will suspend new PS3 import shipments until next week. It doesn't appear that our vendors have inventory on hand in any case until the upcoming weekend when new shipments are expected to be released to the market. If things go according to plan, NCS will restock 60GBs by Nov 27.
Six styles are on offer with five monsters captured in 32 x 32mm cubes while the sixth monster, a purple dragon, is held within a 50 x 50mm block. Pricing is set at US$30 for a complete set of six and preorders are scheduled to ship in mid-late February 2007.
«©NCSX» The Tachikoma is arguably the best mech in existence. Forget Gundam, Votoms, Mazinger, and even the Evangelion. Give us a couple of Tachikoma and we'd rule the world.... or at least take over the local bodega. To celebrate the greatness and abject superiority of the Tachikoma against all other mecha, Japanese manufacturer Cospa has started preorders for a big blue plush which measures 33 x 25 cm (12.99 x 9.84") in dimension. The product photos make the Tachikoma look massive but its really not that big. Nonetheless, it is the biggest Tachikoma toy that we've seen for far. Preorders ship in mid-late February 2006 at JPY6000 but please note that shipping costs will be lofty. NCS sets tentative pricing at US$85 per plush.
