TOYS Koi Bitodzukan Toy Figures - Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» A few years ago, NCS imported Monsterism toys (officially sanctioned by Pete Fowler) from Japan and sold them to collectors and fans. Since then, the vinyl toy market in North America has grown and all sorts of critters can be collected stateside. The Koi Bitodzukan toys from Kabaya are another brand of critter except no one in North America knows what they are. School time:

   The Bitodzukan are flora. Vegetation. The kind of stuff that's good for providing roughage to the diet. If vegetation ever got melded with some poor slob's human genes, you'd probably get the four critters seen here. From the upper left and rolling clockwise, they are:

» Kusamadaraoo Kobito (Bean)
» Ritoru Hana Gashira (Flower)

» Benikino Kobito (Mushroom)
» Kakure Momojiri (Peach)

   Each figure measures 6cm and fizzy lemon candy is included inside each box. Preorders for factory cases of 8 figures are welcome to ship in Jan 2011 at JPY2400 or US$36.90 from NCS.

NEWS General Updates

Holiday Preview Part II
We're in the steady simmering period before the holidays. This is the time when order volume starts picking up from the summer doldrums and weird stuff starts selling. We sold two cutting boards over the past few days which haven't sold in 5 years. Over in Japan, new software releases slow to a trickle while North American releases ramp up with the flood of releases that'll reach market before Thanksgiving. In the next few weeks, USA releases will slow to a trickle and Japanese releases will ramp up.
