Animal Crossing House Gashapon 3

A new Animal Crossing capsule toy collection ships from Yujin which features animal characters and abodes inspired by the recent AXing theatrical film. The houses are identical to each other except for the color of the roof and the furniture inside. Every house is furnished with a unique bed and a chair to complement the whimsical homes along with paper rugs and wallpaper. Six styles of toys are available - four characters with houses and two character sets which feature two animals each along with pieces of furniture. Think of the character sets as potential house guests with their own furnishings.
The animals featured in this set are as follows: Apollo, Alberto, Sari, Bouquet, Seiuchi, Mr. Resetti, Tanukichi, and Tsunekichi. NCS supplies the AXing House product in a complete set of all 6 toys at US$26 per set. New orders are welcome to ship today.

Animal Crossing Ichiban Kuji Plushes

The plushy straps from the Animal Crossing Ichiban Kuji set measure 10cm or 3.93" tall and five varieties are available as follows:

A) Futa aka Blathers
B) Totakeke aka KK Slider
C) Pelly
D) Mr. Resetti
E) Tanukichi aka Tom Nook

Similar to their larger AX plush brethren, the Ichiban Kuji plushes all sport furry coats and feature the recognizable likenesses of the characters that they're modeled after. Totakeke carries his ever-present guitar which is glued tightly. All preorders will ship today and new orders are welcome.

Animal Crossing Ichiban Kuji Mugs

The Mugs from the Animal Crossing Ichiban Kuji set measure 9cm or 3.54" tall and three varieties are available as follows:

A) Futa and Fuko aka Blathers and Celeste
B) Tanukichi aka Tom Nook
C) Totakeke aka KK Slider

When quaffing a hot beverage such as Ovaltine or Swiss Miss cocoa, it always seems to taste better in a thick mug with a handle rather than a glass cup. Your hot drink might taste even better in an AXing mug. New orders are welcome today.

Gyakuten Saiban 4 Limited Edition

One of our suppliers was able to stock 130 copies of the Gyakuten Saiban Limited Edition bundle and we're taking a chunk of that stock. We can accept preorders to ship on Wednesday-Thursday of next week. The bonuses included inside each pack are as follows:

Gyakuten Saiban Encyclopedia and Data Collection
Gyakuten Saiban Douga (History and Image) DVD
Gyakuten Saiban 4 Game and Special Edition Container

** Some red Gyakuten headphones expected but we'll try for 1:1 ratio **

FFXII Revenant Wings Sky Pirates Bundle

Preorders have not been started for the FFXII Revenant Wings Limited Edition bundle yet but we do expect to stock it. Since the supplies of the product is expected to be hoarded by speculators and hiked to lofty valuations, many of our distributors in Japan are taking a wait-and-see posture. We expect bulk supplies that circumvent the speculators to come to market about 1 week after the official release in Japan and pricing is expected to stay at reasonable levels.
