Shonen Jump 40th Anniversary Sofubi Special - Preorder

NCS was first introduced to Weekly Shonen Jump back in the 80s. We were just punk kids back then, wandering the wilds of New York City where bookstores like Kinokuniya and Asahiya became occasional haunts. A portly but attractive salesgirl at Asahiya pointed out Shonen Jump and recommended it. Each issue of Shonen Jump was as big as a dictionary but way more enjoyable to read. We were hooked, When the summer of 2008 rolls around, Shonen Jump will celebrate its 40th anniversary and a barrage of merchandising is on the way to mark the occasion.

The first salvo is a quintet of Sofubi (soft vinyl) figures - Goku, Kinnikuman, Naruto, Ichigo, and Luffy - who hail from five of the most popular works featured in Shonen Jump. Each figure measures 10cm or 3.93" tall and is designed by PansonWorks. Pricing is set at US$12.90 each but we have a separate listing for the complete set of five figures for the price of US$56.90. Preorders are welcome to ship in late August 2008.
