Transformers MP-08 Grimlock - New Import, Sold Out

«©NCSX» If the Transformers echelon were positioned in terms of power ranking, Optimus would be in the prime spot followed by Megatron. Third place would probably be given to Grimlock - a mighty Dinobot who transforms from bulky robot to mechanical Tyrannosaurus Rex. In robot mode, Grimlock carries an Energon sword to mete out the destruction but in Rex mode, his bite does all the damage. Takara finally gives Grimlock his due respect in the eighth Transformers Masterpiece toy which was released in Japan last week and finally arrived yesterday.

Masterpiece Grimlock is made of a combination of PVC and die-cast metal with numerous points of articulation. A gimmicky LED in its right fist illuminates the included Energon sword while Grim's eyes may change color to red or blue in either robot or dinosaur mode. Accessories that are bundled inside the package include a little helmet which may be placed on top of the Rex's head, a blaster rifle, and more. Grimlock looks good in Rex mode but his arms are too scrawny and don't really match his imposing bulk.

All preorders have shipped already as of yesterday but we're currently sold out. We'll update our product listing if we're able to restock another batch from Japan in the next few days.

Denwa Ginjou Coin Bank - Import Preorder

«©NCSX» During the Great Depression, many citizens went from putting their savings in banks to stuffing their mattresses with wads of cash. Think of it as a learned response after thousands of banks went belly up and cash/credit became dear. Instead of using a mattress as a store of currency, NCS recommends the Denwa Ginjou Coin Bank from Targa. The deleveraging process that started in 2007 is likely to continue for at least 2 more years as wealth is wrung out the global financial system. Although the savings of millions has been vanquished over the past year, it's never too late to start saving again for the next round of wealth destruction. The Denwa Ginjou bank accepts coins of all sizes and is designed to look like an old school rotary phone. The product solicitation states that the bank will play one of 10 random Showa era jingles whenever a coin is inserted into the slot. Songs include "Always - Sunset in the Third Street," "I want to return on that day," and "Boyhood." The bank is made of ABS and runs on two AA batteries (not included). Dimensions: H170 x W100 x D110mm. Preorders ship in August.

A stunningly rendered and beautifully stylised comic strip action-adventure, The Spirit is the story of a hero born, murdered and born again. Rookie cop, Denny Colt, aka The Spirit (Gabriel Macht, The Good Shepherd, The Recruit) returns from the dead to fight crime from the shadows of the Gotham-like Central City.

Michael discovers that Hanna loves being read to and their physical relationship deepens.

PC-Engine Blaster Joypad - Clearance

NCS Sale Offering: March 30, 2009
«©NCSX»
New and factory boxed PC-Engine Blaster Joypad which was released for the Japanese market nearly 20 years ago. Although the controllers are new, the boxes have slight dings and some very minor color wear. Perhaps in a testament to the longevity of plastic however, the joypads themselves look great with shiny patinas and seem to have just shipped from the factory. Each joypad is wrapped in a little bubblewrap baggie and a 2-page user pamphlet is included inside each box. The back of the packaging lists the original retail price as JPY2880.

The Blaster is designed for use with the PC-Engine console and features the SELECT and RUN button on the center of the controller while the III, II, and I buttons are located on the right side of the pad. Each button may be empowered with turbo-fire by adjusting the slide lever above each one.

Sale Offering
Pricing is set at US$18.90 per
PC-Engine Blaster Joypad. If you reside in the USA, you may select USPS Media Mail shipping on our shop which is about $2.50. International customers are encouraged to select USPS First Class Airmail at a cost of approximately US$10.

Space Invaders Game Bank - New Import, In Stock

«©NCSX» Back in 2003, Taito celebrated the 25th Anniversary of Space Invaders by releasing a replica of the Space Invaders tabletop game which was really a controller container which held a Dual Shock 2. It was highly collectible and NCS eventually sold out after keeping original inventory for 6 years. Taito shipped a boatload of Space Invaders products last year to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the franchise. This year, the 31st Anniversary of Space Invaders doesn't have the same cachet but that's not stopping Taito from keeping the Invaders merchandising train rolling.

Most piggy banks don't reward savers with entertainment. The Space Invaders Game Bank rewards coin-droppers with a thrilling (sorta) shoot 'em up. Players who insert a 100-yen coin in the coin slot will get to play a round of Space Invaders that's fairly faithful to the original from the sounds to the shields to the included color cellophane overlay. The game bank measures W200 x H105 x D95mm (7.87 x 4.13 x 3.74") in area and is listed as 1/6 scale on Takara's product sheet.

A 100-yen coin measures 2.26cm in diameter so the closest approximation that we have here in the USA is a nickel which spans 2.12cm. The nickel is slightly thicker at 1.95mm versus 1.75mm for the 100-yen coin but it's perfectly sized for the coin slot. Note that a quarter is too large but dimes and pennies may also be inserted into the slot for your personal savings. A little red trigger in the coin slot is activated whenever a nickel passes through. All preorders have shipped as of yesterday; new orders welcome.

Space Invaders Extreme 2 - New Import, Restock Soon

«©NCSX» Taito's classic Space Invaders game gets extreme once again with new features that bring the retro franchise up to speed with the Joneses. Game elements in Space Invaders Extreme 2 include:

» Bingo System:
Taito throws in the classic game of Bingo where a 3x3 grid is lit up during the course of a stage as invaders are shot. To win at Bingo, key spots on the grid must light up horizontally, vertically, or diagonally.
» Multiplayer WiFi Mode:
Compete against another player via wireless Wi-Fi connection with new strategic considerations.

The weapons are the same as the original SIE with the blue laser cleaving through waves of enemies, the bomb-shot causing multiple explosions, and the broad shot hitting multiple enemies at once. Both screens of the NDS are used where the top screen features Bingo or UFOs and boss invaders alternately while the touch screen contains the waves of invader forces.

Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Stardust Accelerator - New, In Stock

«©NCSX» The Yu-Gi-Oh World Championship resumes anew in 2009 with another exciting tournament where characters from the television series engage in a brand new Story Mode. The game features over 2800 5D's cards which includes new cards from the Crimson Crisis booster pack and promo cards including "Genesic Dragon," "Shield Wing," and "Stardust Dragon."

Trigger Heart Exelica Enhanced - New Import, In Stock


«©NCSX» The Naomi arcade version of the Trigger Heart Exelica shooter was originally released in the Spring of 2006 to some fanfare from the fanbase. The Dreamcast edition followed up in early 2007 and over a year later, the Playstation 2 version completes the circle with an "Enhanced" game upgrade which features a new animated introduction, a Story Mode, and a third playable character named Faintear who's a blonde that may be seen on the upper-left corner of the game cover. She's the antagonist in Trigger Heart and her weapon is a twin laser shot that cleaves upwards in a straightforward blast.

The p
lay mechanics in THE are fairly routine where the gals blast away at their foes with standard vulcan shots and flit through vertical aspect stages. The wrinkle in the routine is something called the "Anchor Shot" which allows Exelica or Cruel Tear to tether an enemy ship. Once captured, the enemy vehicle may be launched like a projectile at other enemies for added scoring. In addition to small enemies, larger ships may also be hooked and hurled into the midst of enemy forces for a group smash. An enemy ship may also be hooked and then used as a barrier against enemy shots. It's a new shmup technique to explore and revel in. Developer Warashi also touted the V.B.A.S. (Variable Boss Attack System) where end-level gargantuans change their attack patterns based on the skill of the player.

Trigger Heart Exelica Enhanced LE - New Import, Restock

«©NCSX» The Naomi arcade version of the Trigger Heart Exelica shooter was originally released in the Spring of 2006 to some fanfare from the fanbase. The Dreamcast edition followed up in early 2007 and over a year later, the Playstation 2 version completes the circle with an "Enhanced" game which includes a bonus Exelica Nendoroid figure. We're not sure where Exelica's partner in crime, Cruel Tear, is but where's her Nendroid figure? Inquiring minds do wonder. Preorders will ship today but please note that new orders will ship next week when our second batch of the game arrives.

Gundam Senjou no Kizuna Portable - New Import, In Stock

«©NCSX» The arcade version of Mobile Suit Gundam: Senjou no Kizuna (Bonds of the Battlefield) is an immersive gaming experience where players enter a capsule called a P.O.D. (Panoramic Optical Display). Once seated inside the P.O.D., the senses are absolutely overwhelmed with bright lights and blaring sound. The game uses an overhead projector to beam a 180° panoramic image of the battlefield action onto the screen which is... overwhelming especially when your mech is in motion. Two control levers (sorta like twinsticks) are mounted on the front panel for movement and weaponry while two foot pedals may be thumped to ignite the Gundam's boosters. It's the closest thing to actually piloting a Gundam mech that we've seen thus far and the game reaches the PSP this week.

The portable conversion of Gundam: Senjou no Kizuna isn't as impressive as the arcade original but the missions are intact along with 8-player versus action where a 4-player team battles another 4-player team on action-packed theaters of conflict. Gamers can enjoy the Arcade Mode and Mission Mode (1-4 players). Upon starting a game, a metal gate open up to reveal the arena outside the bay (where the Gundam robots are stored) and your robot rockets into battle. The action runs fairly brisk but graphical quality has been sacrificed to maintain fast speeds. A replay function may be utilized which shows your greatest moments as well as botched operations.


Early reservations will include a bonus Gundam Strategy Guide that is being given away by Bandai in 50% ratio.

Strangely, Adel is not only free from the curse but apparently has the wherewithal and destiny to help the people revert back to normal.

One day in a fit of delirium as evidenced by her untimely laughter, Adel's mother (Ma Ma) puts three of her demonically afflicted children in a cauldron and endeavors to summon Xenon himself to the world.
