Yujin originally released the SRDX Ikkitousen Chou'un figure in Japan earlier this year and it's now time for Chou'un to take a bow in North America. The figure measures 15.25cm or 6" tall and is packaged with a pastel-blue stand and a mounting vice for display purposes. Chou'un's uniform appears to be in good shape until you peer at the area below her left breast - the cloth is slashed open to "accidentally" reveal a bit of skin.
Imported from Japan! From the Square Enix CGI masterpiece, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, comes the heroic Cloud Strife and his mighty motorcycle, Fenrir! Not just another figure/bike combination, this is the ultimate ride with the ultimate rider!
The fully articulated Cloud Strife action figure measures 7.5" tall and includes his famous massive Buster Sword accessory. The motorcyle "Fenrir" is a fully detailed masterpiece of style and design, and measures over 12" long. Every detail has been carefully crafted, from the real rubber tires to working shocks and steering. Best of all, Cloud Strife can be posed astride Fenrir in a multitude of poses!
Note: The Japanese version of the Cloud Stride & Hardy Daytona toy is still scheduled for Dec 2007.
Over a decade after the devastation, a contingent of WORMs is spotted amassing and preparing for another destructive wave. To combat the threat, three girls named Eika Ichijo, Karen Sonomiya, and Otoha Sakurano are recruited to battle the WORMs. The girls are known as Skygirls who pilot mighty exoskeletons (read: mechs) which are capable of fighting the WORMs. Konami has started preorders for a set of Skygirls Trading Figures which measure 12cm tall and are packaged randomly in boxes of 10. There are five standard figures (shown) and 1 secret figure. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late January 2008.
Preorders are welcome for a 132cm or 51.96" tall Elmo plush which towers over all of his stateside plush counterparts. Whereas little Elmo looks somewhat cute, the oversize Elmo looks downright disturbing. It's the eyes. Preorders are welcome to ship on or around October 31, 2007.
PS2 World Heroes Gorgeous leads preorders for this week followed by the new Galaxy Angel II game. There's some interest in Seaman 2 but the subject matter may be too strange to appeal to today's mass audience.
