In any case, feast your peepers on the Nintendo Wii Remote Projector from gashapon peddler Yujin. The little gadget is basically a thumb-sized keychain that shoots out an image of a recognizable (and some not so familiar) video game character from "Zelda The Twilight Princess," "Super Paper Mario," "Fire Emblem," and "Odoru Made in Wario." It's unclear how bright the projected image will be but we'll post impressions, photos, and samples once we receive them. Preorders are welcome to ship in Dec 2007 and NCS will supply the mini projectors in complete sets of eight at US$23.
Despite the lack of Zelda sound love in the minds of the populace, Bandai has decided to release a Sound Drop set based on the recent Zelda game. Sound effects sampled from the Zelda no Densetsu: Mugen no Sunadokei aka Zelda: The Phantom Hourglass game are stored on a computer chip where they may be replayed with a single button press. So, the next time you're at the local mart and aching to hear some shrill Zelda sounds, take a Sound Drop from your pocket and press the button to confound and possibly delight the other shoppers. Preorders ship in Dec.
To help the masses of key fumblers in Japan and around the world, Bandai has announced a set of Super Mario keychains which light up the darkness like a beacon of hope. Or something like that. While the light won't cure alcohol poisoning, it'll provide a little clarity when looking for the right key. NCS supplies the Mascot Keychains in a complete set of 5 at US$20. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late December 2007.
As one might have surmised from the product header, I-NO hails from the Guilty Gear X games where she serves a shadowy figure known as Ano Otoko. Under instructions from Ano Otoko, I-NO machinates and manipulates the fighters in the Guilty Gear X game against each other. In the Guilty Gear XX sequel, I-NO is the boss character and the ultimate opponent in the game. I-NO's primary weapon is an electric axe which she strums to blow out sonic blasts and wreaks havoc on opponents by swinging it like an actual axe. I-NO's witch hat also provides offensive capability to stun oncoming attackers.
Max Factory's Guilty Gear I-NO PVC figure is set at 1/7 scale and measures 26.50cm or 10.43" tall. The likeness of the figure is true to I-NO's wacky video game persona and her body is posed in a manner which conveys her unique personality. Preorders are welcome to ship in Dec 07.
