PS3/Wii/X360 Component Video Cable 2

A few years ago, a company named Farmer released a multi-console AV cable which plugged into the Gamecube, PS2, Dreamcast, and original Xbox. It was very convenient.
Fast forward to a new generation and Farmer returns with a component video cable which links the Playstation 3, Wii, and Xbox 360 to a component video compatible television. A four-position switcher built right into the cable toggles between the following settings:

» Xbox 360 HD
» Xbox 360 YPbPr
» Nintendo Wii
» Playstation 3

Build quality is reasonably good and image output is comparable to standard Sony and Nintendo component cables at a lower price. «More details»

Universal Media Disc Vertical Stand

Got a gaggle of UMDs lying about your lair with nary a storage slot to slip them into? Why not pony up a measly US$18 for a stand which stores 24 UMDs safely within its confines. In addition to the storage utility of the unit, five blue LEDs light up (three AAA batteries required, not included) for some value-added shiny² illumination.
The UMD Stand is built from clear and sturdy plastic that allows the blue light to shine visibly from within. A swivel assembly at the base gives the stand the ability to rotate 360˚ for some whirling action. At high spin cycles, it's better than a disco ball. «More»

Evangelion Non-Scale Figures - Preorder

Kotobukiya has started preorders for two new Evangelion figures which are scheduled to ship in May 07.
First up is an Asuka Langley non-scale figure which features the glowing redhead seated atop a stone slab of some sort. Asuka clasps both hands together and smiles at something in the distance. Next, a non-scale Rei Ayanami figure where she's all decked out in a party dress that clings to her like plastic wrap. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late May 2007 at US$39 each.
