«©NCSX» We're of the opinion that something as mundane as a tumbler should be bright and cheery to make drinking whatever's inside somewhat comforting. There's none of that with the FFVII AC Tumblers from Square Enix. The Cloud and Sephiroth designs on both tumblers look melancholy and infinitely sad. Dr. Kevorkian might have one (or both) on his table. We're looking past the gloom however and supplying the Square Store exclusive tumblers to our customers at US$33.90 each. Please note pricing reflects the special arrangements required to import them.

«©NCSX» A catastrophic conflagration on the Martian surface forces the denizens of the planet below the crust once again. Aspiring peons and drudges are able to pull themselves up by their bootstraps by joining the ranks of the Ravens. Mercenaries by trade, Ravens bear the emblem of whoever's willing to pay top dollar for their services. Most eager to pay are vast and, by default, sinister corporations which jockey for control of the Martian subsurface - Crest, Kisaragi, and Mirage.

«©NCSX» When the original Nintendo DS was released many moons ago, manufacturers in Asia and Japan flooded the market with storage pouches and carrying cases for Ninty's new handheld. There hasn't been the same amount of carrying cases for the Nintendo DSi but that's mainly because standard NDS cases can be used with the DSi. Don't tell that to Hori however since they're releasing the System Bag DSi Black this summer which is designed to store the NDSi, the AC adapter, and a bunch of game cards in its cozy confines. Upon opening up the System Bag, players will be greeted with a number of form-fitting pockets that'll keep the Nintendo DSi and accessories secure and safe from danger. Preorders are welcome to ship on July 9, 2009.
«©NCSX» Mitsuru Kirijou was the token redhead in Persona 3 and Kujikawa Rise serves as the ginger of choice in Persona 4. In the game, Rise is an idol who abruptly retires from showbiz to live with her grandmother in Yasoinaba. Since she has the heart of an idol, her 1/8 scale figure (20.5cm or 8.07" tall) from Wave shows her in a pose that's brimming with flair and showmanship. Wayne Newton, is that you?
Preorders for the Kujikawa Rise figure are welcome to ship in mid-late October 2009 at JPY6800 or US$73.90 from NCS.
«©NCSX» The blue-haired Ria Kujo is a character from the Twinkle Crusaders PC game who's wide-eyed, reserved, and unassuming. Ria has a weakness for Japanese confections known as "wagashi" which bear a passing resemblance to petit fours. In her upcoming toy sculpture from Milestone, Ria pushes a broom and appears to be skating but she's really just stepping. Her school uniform is inexplicably hiked up from behind which means the manufacturer encourages voyeurism.
The toy is non-scale but measures 18.50cm or 7.28" tall and preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late June 2009 at JPY6800 or US$73.90 from NCS.
