SR Capcom Fighting Jam 2 Gashapon Set

When Demitri transforms a male into a female, the hapless victim has been hit by the Midnight Bliss. If some of the males in Capcom Fighting Jam were to undergo impromptu sex changes, they'd look like the gals featured in Yujin's SR CFJ2 set. The characters featured are:

» Yun (Midnight Bliss) wears a crown of sorts
» Urien (Midnight Bliss) is svelte, tanned, and exposes herself
» Demitri (Midnight Bliss) grasps a broom and has an open book prop
» Shin Gouki (Midnight Bliss) is ironically dressed like a maid
» Guy (Midnight Bliss A-Type) rocks blonde tresses and a sword
» Guy (Midnight Bliss B-Type) wears a mask and dyes her hair ruddy.

NCS also bundles the secret Yun character with every set. «photos»

Black Lagoon Shenhua 1:8 Figure

In the Black Lagoon animation, an average salaryman is recruited into a mercenary group which tackles hairy missions in Southeast Asia. Supported with work from the Russian mob known as Hotel Moscow, Black Lagoon runs into a motley assortment of killers and professional assassins in their travels. One of their more memorable counterweights is a Taiwanese assassin named Shanhua who slices and dices with blades.

Max Factory celebrates the svelte silhouette of Shenhua with a 1/8 scale PVC figure which measures 21cm or 8.26" tall. Shenhua holds two Khukuris in her hands and two sets of throwing knives may be observed lashed around her thighs. The assassin wears a flowing red number which is tight on top and curiously billowy on the bottom. Preorders will ship today and new orders are welcome at US$68.

Macross Plus 1/60 YF-19 w/ Fold Booster & FPP

Yamato originally released the base Macross Plus 1/60 scale YF-19 (34cm in length) toy a couple of years ago but they've upgraded it with a Fold Booster and Fast Pack Parts for the definitive version of their YF-19. The 21cm Fold Booster features an LED inside which lights up for a bit of illumination. The Fast Pack Parts are bolted onto the rear of the YF-19. Two pilot figures are also included inside the package. All orders ship today.

Star Wars: Luke vs Darth Vader 1/8 Scale Model Kit

Kotobukiya celebrates the 30th Anniversary of Star Wars with a limited edition "Star Wars: Luke Skywalker vs Darth Vader PVC Figure Kit" which pits father against son in a dramatic battle scene. Darth appears to have the upper hand with his saber drawn and cape flowing. Luke's wearing a Tie-Fighter pilot's breathing apparatus, perhaps in an eerie homage to poppy. The kit is set to 1/7 scale and only 1977 units will be produced.
Pricing is set at JPY20000 or US$249. NCS will only ship this item via UPS Ground; please note that this item carries a dimensional weight of 35 lbs. The kit will also ship 1:1 in its original cardboard carton from Kotobukiya.
