Caltoy UJ Mouse Plush

There's been a number of rats in the news this year. In New York City, rats were seen dancing rampant inside a fast food restaurant and there was a movie based on rats running a restaurant. We once saw a rat that was roughly 2' long and upside down inside a city trash can - dead and stiff with an 8" thick sinewy tail. A tear was shed for the sanitation engineer that had to clean that up.
Rats can be lovable. Caltoy says so. To that end, Sega ships three big Caltoy rodents with dish-like ears and stubby tails in December 2007. Each rat measures 45cm or 17.71" long and three color variants are on offer - white, pink, and yellow. Pricing is set at US$49 each and preorders are welcome.

Hokuto no Ken Muso Tensei Media Case

We go through a lot of new games and movies every week. Year in and year out with the same routine, storage becomes a major issue in that it's not easy to archive a few thousand DVDs and CDs. The Hokuto no Ken Muso Tensei Media Case won't make a dent in our storage requirements but at least it'll serve as a decorative shelter for a week's worth of new releases. The Media Case holds about 15 DVD cases within its partitions which are decorated with an image of Kenshiro or Raoh with a spiky helmet. Preorders are welcome to ship in December 2007 at US$10 each.

Kewpie Honey Diecut Cushion

Sega Toys has started preorders for a pair of cushions being released under the Kewpie Honey banner. Two characters are featured - on the right we have Go Nagai's Cutey Honey in chibi formulation and to the left, a Rose O'Neill Kewpie.
Each cushion measures 35cm or 13.77" in height and roughly 25cm in width. The thickness is approximately 5cm or 2" which is comparable to the Mario cushions we've sold in the past. Pricing is set at US$18 per cushion and preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late December 2007.
