Figma Archetypes - Import Preorder

«©NCSX» Good Smile Company opened up preorders over the weekend for their figma Archetypes which depict what appear to be ideal male and female body types. Some observances:

1) The nimble male specimen is apparently a superhero of some sort based on the pose that GSC has placed him in. The pose indicates an action known as "leaping in place." That's when someone hops upwards without provocation.

2) The female specimen is perfectly proportioned and sports a healthy C cup. She's not an hourglass figure with child-rearing hips however. She's more of an athlete than what some (not us) would call a breeder. Preorders for either archetype are welcome to ship in June.

General Updates

Presidents' Holiday
Banks, stock markets, public schools, and the postal service are all closed and shuttered today in observance of Presidents Day. A couple of UPS Worldwide Express shipments that were scheduled to arrive earlier this morning were delayed because of how UPS treats buildings that have at least one office that is marked in their system as closed. For example, even though our office building has about 100 separate offices and businesses that are all open and working today, if just one office notifies UPS that they're closed today, UPS treats the entire building as closed. Thanks, Brown. Due to this problem, our shipments of PSP Gundam Axis V and a number of restock items are now expected tomorrow.
Demon's Souls - Asian Version
The Asian version of PS3 Demon's Souls that's scheduled to arrive next week features English subtitles and voices along with a Chinese language option. NCS expects delivery of the game on February 24 but the Asian distributor may allow the game to be released to shops as early as this Saturday according to our Hong Kong vendors. If an early release occurs, we'll receive the game on February 23 and ship all preorders at that time.
