Ragnarok Online Narikiri Collection

In the Ragnarok Online game, a number of items may be worn by a character to distinguish him or her from the unwashed masses. Since some of the items worn in RO are so unique, Japanese manufacturer System Service has decided to offer them for sale so you can wear them on the street or at the next costume party. Four pieces of headwear are on offer:

1) Deviruchi Hat - Plop a devilish creature on top of your head
2) Drooping Cat - A black kitten seemingly claws at your noggin
3) Maid - A lazy looking maid in a purple dress and white apron
4) Angel Wings - Pretend you just dropped from heaven.

Preorders are welcome to ship in October 2007 at US$16 per piece of headwear.

Ragnarok Online USB Cup Warmer Set

When engrossed in a late night session of Ragnarok Online, caffeine really isn't needed to keep a player awake. The excitement of slaying Poring and exploring the game world is enough to keep the Sandman away. However, if you're the type who enjoys a warm caffeinated beverage for that extra buzz, System Service is at your... service. Plug the cup warmer into an available USB port and then dock the included Poring-faced 10cm cup on top of it. The cup warmer keeps the beverage in the cup nice and warm with no muss nor fuss. Preorders ship in November 2007.

Ragnarok Online Collection Plush

Cuddy creatures come alive when System Service unleashes the Ragnarok Online plushes. Measuring a modest 10cm in height, four creatures are featured as follows:

(1) Poporing - A green teardrop shaped beastie
(2) Arc Angeling - Aqua-blue color to match the heavens above
(3) Poring - Bright eyes, pink patina, and a crooked smile = love.
(4) Drops - Golden-wheat colored beast with a pained expression

Preorders are welcome to ship in November 2007 at US$9 per plush.

Ragnarok Online Collection Prize

Imagine populating your Lego castle or other construct with a crowd of miniature Ragnarok Online figures which measure a mere 3cm in height. Pit them against Lego soldiers, G.I. Joe Kubricks, Barbie, or any other toy figure in your war chest and then film a stop-motion war movie for the Youtube generation. We're thinking of dropping some of them into an aquarium but the PVC might leach into the water and wipe out all of our pet shrimp. Four types of creatures are included in each NCS set which is priced at US$6.50: one pink Poring, one green Poporing, one yellow Drops, and one blue Arc Angeling.
Preorders are welcome to ship in December 2007.
