Animal Crossing Watashi no Uchi Collection - Preorder

«©NCSX» Yujin has started preorders for a new set of Animal Crossing "House" gashapon toys which feature the characters of AXing and their houses. Checking our own sets of previous AXing House toys from yesteryear, we notice that the pieces of furniture are rehashed from the earlier toys but the three houses feature a new design.

Each figure measures 3cm (1.18") tall and the dimensions of each house are 5 x 6 x 5cm (1.96 x 2.36 x 1.96"). Each figure can be placed inside his/her respective home along with the pieces of furniture that are included with the particular toy. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late April 2009 at US$28.90 per complete set of five figures from NCS.

Igor Blu-Ray - New Release, Ships in 24 Hours

From the Publisher
This hilarious animated twist on the classic monster movie is must-see family fun! Determined to prove he can create his own diabolical invention, a mad scientist's (John Cleese) nice-guy assistant Igor (John Cusack) creates a female Franken-monster. But his creation, Eva (Molly Shannon), is sweet and sings show tunes! That is, until she falls into the clutches of Dr. Schadenfreude (Eddie Izzard) and his shape-shifting girlfriend (Jennifer Coolidge). Now it's up to Igor and his sidekicks (Steve Buscemi and Sean Hayes) to save Eva - and their country - from real evildoers, including sneaky Prince Malpert (Jay Leno).

Directed by Tony Leonidas (LILO & STITCH 2: STITCH HAS A GLITCH), IGOR takes many of its macabre cues from horror-comedy classics THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS and YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, mixing monster-movie elements with moments of clever humor and generous amounts of slapstick.

Chocobo Magic Book Plush - Reproduction Preorder

«©NCSX» Whenever Chocobo's out in the wild, the feathered beast generally runs, pecks, and squawks up a storm. Add one more activity to Chocobo's to-do list: reading.

In the recent NDS
Chocobo to Mahou no Ehon game, a magic book was the source of Chocobo's woes as well as its eventual salvation. With Square Enix's Chocobo plush, the big bird apparently enjoys reading from a magic book of spells. The Chocobo plush measures 20cm or 8" tall from the bottom of its talons to the top feather on its head. Furthermore, Chocobo measures 19cm or 7.50" from beak to tail feathers. If you count the book in front of Chocobo, add another 1.20cm or 0.50" to its length. The new production of the Chocobo plush is scheduled to ship in May.
