LBP Mini Knit Sackboy Mascot Photo Gallery - In Stock

«©NCSX» The Mini Knit Sackboy Plushes arrived last Friday but too late in the morning to take proper photos. NCS rectifies the lack of photos today with a gallery featuring the four Sackboy variants including the surprise Sunflower version which replaced the "Smile Sackboy" that was originally listed in Taito's preorder solicitation.

The four Sackboy plushes are:
Normal Sackboy, Soldier Sackboy, Pirate Sackboy, and Sunflower Sackboy. Each mascot measures 10cm or 3.93" in height and is made of plushy brown material that's soft to the touch. To recreate Sackboy faithfully, a cloth zipper is located beneath Sack's chin.

Preorders have begun shipping last Friday but for customers who reserved the "Smile Sackboy," we have sent a reconfirmation email to notify customers of the change and to inquire if they wish to order Sunflower Sackboy or switch to another variant. If you don't see the email, please check your Junk or Spam folder in case our message was filtered.

Street Fighter 20th Anniversary Chun-Li - New, In Stock

«©NCSX» Japanese manufacturer Organic releases a special limited edition Street Fighter 20th Anniversary Chun-Li figure which features a child-like version of the power-kick-capable heroine. The production quantity is limited to only 500 pieces total but it's unclear if each figure will be serially numbered so collectors can keep tabs on where they stand in terms of the manufacturing run.

The full product title is "
Street Fighter 20th Anniversary Chun-Li Limited Color Black Version" where the not-so-dainty Street Fighter wears a black dress with gold trim and regulation-issue dark leggings. Her shoes and the hair accessories are white. Chun's appearance and pose are somewhat cherubic although the spiky wristbands are a telltale sign that Chun-Li is no angel. The figure measures 12cm or 4.72" in height and is sculpted from PVC. All preorders have shipped on Friday and new orders are welcome.

Creators Labo #016 Jingai Makyo Ignis - New, In Stock

«©NCSX» Yamato releases the sixteenth Creators Labo toy and she's someone we're very familiar with. Her name is Ignis and she's a woman warrior who hails from the Jingai Makyo eroge. Ignis is a ginger with moxie, fighting skills, and choice pieces of fighting garb that usually make her the center of attention. There's probably more material making up her boots than Ignis' entire outfit.

In her Creators Labo turn, Ignis seems to thrusting forward as if being propelled by a jet of water. How else to explain her arched back and the forward positioning of her hips as well as the wayward position of her body? Then again, maybe that's just how she rolls. Ignis carries a sword in her right hand while a firearm is gripped menacingly in her left hand. In addition to the Ignis figure itself, the toy includes a jagged, bony-toothed, pedestal upon which Ignis seems to leap. A tentacle extends from the ground and disappears behind Ignis' billowing "skirt."

The figure measures 20cm or 7.67" in height. Preorders
have shipped already as of last Friday and new orders are welcome to ship today. Due to the size of the Ignis figure, NCS recommends only shipping by UPS Ground within the United States to avoid onerous air carriage charges.

Djibril Zero 1/8 Scale PVC Figure - New Imp, In Stock

«©NCSX» Djibril Zero looks like a lil' angel of a girl with gossamer wings and a halo. But she's not an angel nor a girl. Zero's actually a computer program known as the New Angelic Gaia Interface (N.A.G.I.) which incarnates in the form of a modern day cherub.

Djibril Zero hails from the Makai Tenshi Jibril franchise and Alter has seen fit to rend her into a seemingly airborne figure who's held aloft by a metal brace. Hajime Kouzuki (Little Pink Summer) provides the sculpture which is set to 1/8 scale and measures 17cm or 6.69" tall.

Preorders and new orders will ship today at JPY6800 or US$73.90 from NCS. The first production of the figure includes a bonus full-color Djibril Zero trading card that's mounted on the lower right corner of the carton.

Persona 3 Elizabeth Figure - New Import, Restock Soon

«©NCSX» In the Persona 3 video game, Elizabeth is a boss character who throws piercing projectile attacks and calls upon different forms to vary her method of attack. She's an interesting boss who's tough to beat but you'll win a very nice bonus if you manage to defeat her.

Alter sculpts and releases a 1/8 scale Elizabeth figure which measures 22cm or 8.66" tall. Liz is dressed like a futuristic air stewardess and carries her book of spells "Le Grimoire de Couer" on her left arm. The characters and demons from all Megami Taisen (MegaTen) games have a distinctive style about them thanks to the artistic stylings of
Kazuma Kaneko and his cohort Soejima Shigenori.

All preorders will ship today and new orders are welcome to ship within the next 4-5 business days when our second batch of Elizabeth arrives.

Pinky Street Kira Kira Music Night for NDS - Clearance

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» The female hipsters of "Pinky Street: Kira Kira Music Hour" which was released last year return for another round of dancing and rhythm action. The gist is this: the stylus is used to poke at three sections of the touch screen as they light up. For example, if the top section is lit, tap it as quickly as possible to register a groovy rank of 「RAINBOW」 but if the middle section glows and you're a micro-second too slow, you might get a 「KIRA2 」or a 「GOOD!」ranking.

It's all about quick and nimble tapping as the three sections light up in various patterns. New directional cues, new characters, updated scenarios, and a revamped music list all conspire to make Kira Kira Music Night a fresh and riveting gaming experience.

Kira Kira Music Night for NDS is new, factory sealed, and in excellent condition. Pricing is set at US$28.90 per copy which includes "free" shipping by USPS Media Mail within the continental United States. Media Mail normally delivers within 2-3 weeks.
