To operate Cyber Maid Alice, a PC and a webcam are required but not included. To get started, you'll have to download the necessary setup software from Geisha Tokyo's website.
The webcam is used to project an image of Alice on top of the Cyber Cube. She'll react to external stimuli provided by the Cyber Stick. For example, pouncing the Cyber Stick on her bosom will cause her to react in a convincing way. Alice can also talk, make gestures and show a range of emotions. A video of Alice's antics is viewable on Youtube. Update Oct 16, 2008: The manufacturer has posted up a new Youtube video which shows the possibilities and the outfits that Alice can wear.
In her 'Maniax turn, Felicia pounces down a grey section of banister with perfect feline form. If the lights were turned down low, the sculpture would exhibit a light and airy silhouette that's evocative of Felicia's wily ways. The Vampire heroine is decked out in her regulation issue fighting threads and the blue tresses are wavy as usual. The height of the figure is listed at 23cm or approximately 9" tall and roughly that much in length.
Please note that the figure is encased in a blister pack and Felicia's tail is unattached from the factory. Her curly tail must be plugged in but the attachment doesn't require any glue and it'll only take a few seconds.
Due to the high cost of shipping Felicia into the States, NCS is raising the price of the figure to US$82.90 but we will honor all preorders that were submitted at US$68.90. Each retail box incurs dimensional weight and we recommend only shipping by UPS Ground within the United States.
The Yoko no Dokuro T-Shirt features a skull with hair pins on the front and Yoko's sniper rifle on the pack. If you walk down the street wearing the t-shirt, you might be mistaken for a revolutionary warrior of some stripe. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late November 2008.
In the Vampire Knight serial, Prefects of Cross Academy such as Yuki Cross and Zero Kiryu wear a black school outfit with a white armband which features the crimson "Starry Cross" on the side. No Vampire Knight cosplayer should be caught dead without one.
Cospa's official Vampire Knight Armband measures 10cm x 40cm and is meant to be wrapped around your left bicep. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late November 2008 at US$22.90 from NCS.
|Little Big Planet|
As of Friday evening, we were expecting a restock shipment of LBP (first printing) today but Sony has recalled all shipments that were in the channel. Sadly, the copies that were recalled will likely be destroyed.
In related news, we were tracking shipments over the weekend and saw that most customers received their USPS Express Mail shipments on Saturday. If you selected UPS Overnight shipping, please note that the delivery date will be today since UPS does not move packages over the weekend unless a separate Saturday fee is charged.
|Preorders Opening Tomorrow|
Based on a notice received earlier today, we expect to start preorders for PS3 White Knight Chronicles and Wii Naruto Shipuden Geitou Ninjya Taisen ! EX3 tomorrow. WKC will include a bonus in 30% ratio.
