Masauzi Yoshizawa of REFLECT apparently remembers Poison well because she was available as a garage kit earlier this year but a finished PVC figure version of Poison makes it in today at JPY7140 or US$68 from NCS. The figure is set at 1/6 scale and measures 28cm (11.02") tall from her spiky heels to the top of her removable cap. A pair of handcuffs is included in the product packaging to serve as a nifty accessory.
NCS originally sold out of this product last month but a new batch arrived today and all backorders will ship this afternoon. New orders are also welcome to ship today. «View larger photos for this item»
Well, it's a Famicom adapter for the Nintendo DS Lite. Plug the NDS Lite on top of the unit via GBA slot and slide a Famicom cartridge into the Familator. Power up and play 8-bit games directly on the NDS Lite or pipe the video out to a television for big screen action. We'll post more photos and details tomorrow when the shipments arrive.
Darth measures 44cm or approximately 17" in height. A total of 1,000 units will be released in Japan and each toy will be serially numbered so that each and every buyer knows his position in the universe.
Pricing is set at JPY31,000 or US$269 for the Japanese version of Darth Vader W Size but please note that a USA version of the toy (which is limited to 600 units total) will also be released sometime in the first quarter of 2008 at a substantially lower price of US$199. Preorders for the Japanese version are welcome today.

Our cost to bring these in on January 9, 2006 was US$157.09 based on the USD/JPY conversion rate at the time and we foolishly assumed we would be able to sell them for US$175.00. Sale pricing is set at US$109 which includes "free shipping" by way of UPS Ground.
