Creator's Labo #14 Arisa Another Color - Preorder

From the Manufacturer
Hot off her sell-out performance, Yamato is pleased to represent Arisa in an all new color styling. Fashioned by Sunny Day of the Korean sculpting team Cerebus Project™ from an illustration by Shunya Yamashita, this plump, bespeckeld girl in school uniform, precariously poised on her toes, is even more captivatingly irresistible.

Standing over 24cm or 10" tall, Yamato's CREATORS' LABO #014: Arisa comes window boxed with a host of accessories including bass guitar with strings, a new pair of eyeglasses, heart shaped sunglasses (new), decorative arm parts, display base, and removable blouse and skirt. If you missed her first performance, be sure not to miss this encore.

Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late June 2008 at US$68.90.

High School of the Dead: Rei Miyamoto - Preorder

A contagion is spreading across the world and infecting humanity without prejudice. Normal citizens are dying by the boatload and then rising up again as the undead. Our story takes place in Japan where a number of high school students and a nurse named Shizuka Marikawa have resisted the contagion and now must find a solution to man's plight.

In the High School of the Dead serial, a student name Rei Miyamoto uses a spear-like weapon known as a sou-jutsu which is capable of clearing out wide swaths of zombie malcontents. Japanese manufacturer Toy Works has started preorders for a 1/8 scale Rei Miyamoto figure which is constructed of PVC and ABS. Rei wears her high school uniform which may be shucked to reveal her bare bosom. To fend off zombies, a sou-jutsu is included with the toy. Just in case. Jan Code: 4543341131348

Ikkitousen Sekine Special Color Ver. - Preorder

From the Manufacturer
We said it would be dynamite, and it was! Yamato's highly praised PROJECT DYNAMITE #001: IKKITOUSEN - Kanu Unchou 1/5 PVC statue has been a sell-out phenomenon!

Now Yamato is pleased to present an all new color variation of this damsel in distress which is sure to be just as explosive, if not more. Sculpted by the talented TOUSHIROU (Cobra-kai), this chained and shackled beauty leaves nothing and everything to the imagination.

Window boxed, this limited second run of Yamato's PROJECT DYNAMITE #001: IKKITOUSEN - Kanu Unchou features spiked balls not included in the first edition. Another must have collectible from Yamato.

NCS Preorder Offer
The figure measures approximately 16cm in height and nearly that much in "area" with Kanu's sprawled legs radiating outwards like tentacles. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late June 2008 at JPY13000 or US$129 from NCS.

Real Artwork Series: Galaxy Express 999 - Clearance

Happinet Robin releases a piece of Galaxy Express 999 artwork which features two recognizable figures which pop out of the piece:

1) Starsha with her doleful eyes and blonde hair
2) The Galaxy Express 999 in all its glory

By "pop out," we mean it. Both Starsha and the ship are 3D models that poke out of the artwork and may be touched, examined, and photographed in their extruded forms. The dimensions of the product measure W210 x H297 x D140 mm (W8.27 x H11.69 x D5.51") and would look good hanging on a wall or mounted in a GEX999 shrine/gallery.

NCS Sale Offering
Pricing per Real Artwork Series: Galaxy Express is set at US$149.90 which includes free shipping by UPS Ground.
