Runaway Brain B&W Version

Mickey Mouse is generally known as a jovial sort of rodent with a sunny disposition and a squeaky voice. Things weren't so in the "Runaway Brain" 7-minute movie where a misguided doctor named Frankenollie exchanged Mickey's brain with the crazed brain of a monster named Julius.
The color version of the Runaway Brain Mickey vinyl figure from Medicom was originally released in the spring of 2005 and a new production was shipped to market late last year. To follow up on the success of the Runaway Brain figure sales, Medicom re-releases a black & white version of the figure to meet market demand. «more»

Motoko Kusanagi 1/7 Scale Pre-Painted Figure

Vice has gone out of business but the bulk of our shipments of the 1/7 scale Motoko Kusanagi figure arrived today. Motoko stands at 1/7 scale and is dressed in two-tone ninja duds which complement her purplish tresses. Her pose is casual and the Major unzips her vest to reveal voluptuous attributes underneath. Repeat: Voluptuous. Kusanagi sports a pair of combat boots and wears enough padding to prevent major damage should she take a direct hit. For return fire engagements, she hefts a firearm in her right hand. The figure is fixed-pose and a transparent base is included for display purposes. «more»

Wonka Golden Ticket

Remember when Veruca Salt marshaled the resources of father's nut factory to find a Golden Ticket in the Charlie & The Chocolate Factory movie? The amount of capital and manpower expended was magnificent... and wasteful. Fast forward to the current day and Medicom has a simpler solution for anyone who wants a Wonka Golden Ticket.
Pony up a measly JPY10,000 and you may join Veruca, Charlie Bucket, Mike Teavee, Violet Beauregarde, Augustus Gloop in the winner's circle. In addition to the golden colored ticket itself, a mounting placard is included for display purposes.

Please note the replica ticket is based on the version featured in the 2005 movie which starred Johnny Depp in the role of the reclusive confectioner. The back of the ticket includes the entire welcome text and instructions for the winners from Willy Wonka. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late August 2007.
