Whereas the Kinu Nishimura is based on the Capcom vs SNK 2 version of Mai with a slightly more rounded and open face, big beautiful eyes, and highly accentuated body proportions, the Aizu Project sculpt is inspired by classic King of Fighters Mai. This is the Mai we grew up with - playful, wild, and sexy. Her face is sharp and thin, the body is bodacious, and the color scheme is traditional Mai. The pose in the Aizu Project version is highly kinetic and is perhaps overly gratuitous. Edit: Painfully gratuitous.
Preorders for the pre-painted 1/7 scale coldcast are welcome to ship in mid-late July 2007 at JPY16000 or US$165 from NCS.
Lives in a Bog
It's a Frog
Along with the large 38cm tall frog plush, an even bigger 43cm long tadpole is also on offer. Preorders are welcome today to ship in late August 2007 at US$49 each for either the frog or the tadpole.

Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late June 2007 at US$50 per factory sealed box of 10.
In addition to the tabletop bowling game, Eikoh bundles a Hello Kitty 86 bowling pin which measures 30cm (11.81") tall with either red or blue trim around the neck of the pin. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late August 2007 - please select the color of the bowling pin through the dropdown menu on our shop listing for this product.
Hello Kitty understands this and the little feline lends her image to a miniature drink dispenser who holds about a quart of liquid. Fill it up with your favorite lukewarm beverage and marvel at the novelty of a tabletop oasis where refreshment pours like manna from the lever-activated spigot. Two styles are on offer - a pink dispenser with pink liquid canister and a yellow-colored dispenser with matching canister. Preorders ship in August.
Features on the Tachikoma include rolling wheels under the legs, properly formed gun turrets, a pod which opens up to unveil the winsome Motoko Kusanagi inside, and pincers that are molded to look like the pincers we know and love from GITS. Accessories included inside the package include a wrench for Motoko to use, a gunmetal-colored gunpod, and an open book replica so the Major has something to read. Preorders ship in late June 07.
