Shooting Game Historica Vol. 2 - New Import, In Stock

NCS Product Synopsis - Updated on August 14, 2008

«©NCSX» Japanese toy manufacturer Yujin launches the second volume of Shooting Game Historica gashapon which features starships from another six shooting games as follows:

» Fantasy Zone - Opa Opa
» Musha Aleste - M.U.S.H.A. (Metallic Uniframe Super Hybrid Armor)
» R-Type III - R-90 Ragnarok
» Raystorm - R-Gray1
» Star Luster - Gaia
» Star Blade - Geo Sword

Three Photo Galleries Uploaded Today
Due to the amount of photos, we're splitting them up into three separate galleries to ease the load on our server.

» Overview - Grouping of Ships Gallery - All six ships in group photos
» Detailed - Individual Ships Gallery - Geo Sword, G.A.I.A., M.U.S.H.A.
» Detailed - Individual Ships Gallery - Opa Opa, R-90 Ragnarok, R-Gray1

Since Yujin appears to be releasing the ships in some sort of chronological order, we might not see the Judge Spear or the Silvergun until SGH Vol. 4. The toys are normally sold randomly in Japan inside gashapon machines but we're gathering together all six ships into a complete set so our customers can collect them all without having to suffer the pain and annoyance of unwanted duplicates.

If you have a Hotmail or Yahoo email address, please check your Junk-Mail or Deleted Items folder for our email.

General Updates

GA-KO Alarm Clock Again
All backorders for the GA-KO Alarm Clock will ship today. Stock is available for new
orders to ship this afternoon. With today's shipment, NCS expects to keep the GA-KO Alarm Clock in stock up until the holiday season.
Mother 3 - Bye Bye
NCS kept GBA Mother 3 in stock for over two years but we finally sold our last copy last night. They're all gone despite our negative review of the game and the subsequent hate mail.
Total quantity sold in those two years: 860 copies of the game and 120 sets of the Mother 3 GBA bundle. Eight sets of the GBA bundle were damaged during shipping from Japan but we were able to sell them at a reduced price. For a while, we thought we'd have the game in stock forever but little by little, box by box, the supply of the game eventually petered out. Thanks to everyone who helped clear out our inventory.
KORG DS-10 Synthesizer
Another batch of NDS KORG DS-10 arrived today and any remaining backorders will ship today. Update: Sold out again. Restock soon.
