Super Mario Galaxy Sound Drop Compact - Preorder

The shrill sound effects and jingling chimes of Super Mario Galaxy are captured in Bandai's upcoming Sound Drop toys dedicated to the recent Wii game. A total of eight different Sound Drops are featured in the set which emit a sonorous sound effect when pressed. Push all eight in sequence and you might compose a sweet Mario Galaxy symphony.

The Sound Drop toys are normally sold through gashapon dispensers in random fashion but we'll gather them up and portion them into complete sets. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late May 2008 at US$25 for the full set of eight Mario Galaxy Sound Drops.

Super Mario Galaxy Funyu Funyu Mascot Vol. 3 - Preorder

Representations of rascals and rotund fungi from Nintendo's Super Mario Galaxy game are the featured subjects in Bandai's new mascot keychains. You might be wondering what the heck "Funyu Funyu" means so we're going to school you. When you mash or completely crush an innocent rubbery object only to have it regain its shape and composure, the object is described as Funyu Funyu. Remember, squeeze and release.

The Mascot toys are normally sold through gashapon dispensers in random fashion but we'll gather them up and portion them into complete sets. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late May 2008 at US$22.

NCS Spam Blockage Notice
We've recently installed a robust spam blocker on our accounts at support@ncsxshop and but the software may be a little too aggressive.

Super Robot Wars Alpha 2 Figure - Stock Clearance

When Banpresto released Super Robot Wars Alpha 2nd a few years ago, it was a big deal among the SRW faithful. Along with the game, Banpresto also released a limited edition box which contained an exclusive figure which would never be sold in any other capacity. Sales were brisk but NCS imported too many limited editions. The regular edition of SRWA 2nd sold great for years and we started taking games out of the LE bundles to fill orders. That left us with a bunch of figures.

Sale Offering
Our remaining stock of the SRW Alpha 2 figures is new and packaged in the original retail box for the SRW Alpha 2nd Limited Edition. Pricing is set at US$30.90 per figure which includes USPS Priority Mail shipping anywhere in the contiguous USA. Please note that our shop does not process transactions in real time and orders will be charged US$30.90 only.
