Despite our protestations, the R2-D2 exploitation will probably never end so if we can't beat 'em, we join 'em. NCS shamelessly engages in the peddling of R2-D2 products and we're selling the soy sauce bottles today. Each droid holds about 4 oz of liquid. We tried water, milk, vodka, and soy sauce and everything poured out with ease. That is, until we tried olive oil which was too viscous to make it through the droid's pour-hole. «Photos»

Aya scoffs at those pansies.
She goes to war wearing a two-piece bikini, a hat, and a pair of thigh high boots. Occasionally she'll throw on a feather boa to accessorize. In the case of the Oneechan Bara VorteX Aya figure, our idol also wears a beaded necklace and hefts two swords for that special dual slicing action.
The Aya figure is set to 1/8 scale and measures 20cm or 7.87" tall. Two color variants are on offer - a red bikini figure as shown in the product photo to the left and a black bikini version. Other than the color of the bikini and the shade of the tassels on her gloves, the two figures are identical. Aya also wears a hat which may be removed to reveal her hat-flattened hair. New orders are welcome to ship today. «Photos»
The Kanu Unchou figure measures 17cm (6.69) tall and sprawls approximately 9" from the tips of her manacled hands to the toe of her left foot. An extra hand attached to a flared sleeve and a staff are included inside the packaging which belong to Choukou, Kanu's oppressor in the Ikki Tousen storyline. The Kanu figure and is fully painted, assembled, and ready for display.
Please note the windowed box that holds the cold cast measures 16.5 x 12 x 9.5" and will incur dimensional shipping charges for UPS Ground as well as UPS Air. Preorders will ship today and new orders are welcome.
