DVD Fireball Drossel Winter Package - Import Preorder

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Disney and Kotobukiya have started preorders for a limited edition DVD Fireball Drossel Winter Package which contains a DVD and an exclusive figma which looks like a robot that's been inspired by a candy cane. Based on the mock-up images released thus far, the figma appears to be wearing a furry helmet on top of its head and has a pair of crimson shades on. A red/white "stocking" may also be seen wrapped around the figma's left leg. According to Japanese vendors, there is a "possibility of shortage" but that's probably just rabid sales hype. Preorders ship in late December 2009 @ ¥5600.

Kanu Unchou Swimsuit 2 Resin Cast - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» Early in Kanu Unchou's career, she only took serious roles. Kanu was a fighter extraordinaire who battled opponents with a mighty spear. Sure, her clothing occasionally burst into shreds but she was a professional through and through. A professional who followed the script and stayed true to her warrior's heart/soul/virtue/whatever.

Recently, Kanu's been getting into sexploitation. That's where she gets into lewd poses that are conducive to ogling. The upcoming Kanu Unchou Swimsuit 2 Resin Cast figure from
Musashiya fits the bill where Kanu is in an uncomfortable pose. Both legs are perpendicular to the floor and only slim wisps of clothing are bound to Kanu's bosom and bottom. Preorders are welcome to ship in September 2009 at JPY13800 or US$168.90 from NCS. Please note this item incurs dimensional weight shipping charges.

figma Persona 3 Aegis - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» Hailing from the Persona 3 game on the Playstation 2, Aegis is an android who battles the dastardly Shadows with a volatile range of weaponry. Her prerogative in the game is to protect the protagonist of Persona 3 and she serves in that capacity with able-bodied determination. Max Factory has started preorders for a figma rendition of Aegis that looks pretty good from the perfectly coiffed head sculpt to the hooves. That's right, Aegis doesn't have feet. She has hooves.

From the Publisher
Anti-Shadow special android Aigis: operation start. A figma of the self-conscious combat android 'Aigis', designed to suppress the Shadow outbreak.
» Using the smooth yet poseable joints of figma, you can act out various scenes.
» Three expressions are included - a 'normal face', a 'smiling face' and an 'angry face', enough expression to make her not seem like a robot!
» The machine guns that attach to both arms can be attached and removed, and her 'Rocket Punch' arm is also included.
» Clear parts that can be attached to the bottom of the feet allow her to stand without a figma stand.
» A poseable figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.

Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late October 2009 at US$38.90.

Emotion Style Mari Makinami Illustrious - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» Wave recently started preorders for a Mari Makinami Illustrious figure (photo to the right) which featured the Evangelion handler in a green plug-suit and red-rimmed glasses. That's the type of spectacles that Elton John wears to show off his flamboyancy. Bandai has started preorders for their own rendition of Mari which is sculpted by KaNA (Heavy Gauge). In the new version, Mari is in a pink plug suit that's adorned with what appears to be racing stripes on the thigh area. Mari's still wearing those red-rimmed glasses and her facial expression is just as placid as the Wave sculpture. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late September 2009 at JPY6000 or US$70.90 from NCS.

R2-D2 USB Humidifier (加湿器 [かしつき]) - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» During the winter months, the heat in our office building gets cranked up pretty high so that the air becomes dry and uncomfortable. It's a relative scorcher indoors whilst the temperatures outdoors are freezing . To alleviate the problem of arid office air, NCS doesn't use a humidifier. We just go around each room with an olde school atomizer and mist the air a few times every day. That routine might be coming to an end however since Taito has started preorders for an R2-D2 USB Humidifier which features wicking action. Roughly 8 ounces of water is stored in R2-D2's lil' body which is wicked into a filter where it is blown into the air by fan power. The humidifier doesn't require batteries and is powered by plugging it into any USB port. Preorders are welcome to ship in November 2009.

PC-Engine Super-Grafx Rom Adapter RAU-30 - Sale

NCS Sale of the Week Offering: July 20, 2009
Original Release in Japan: December 04, 1988

Whenever we locate old inventory in the dark recesses of the original warehouse, we'll wonder how well the plastic has held up over the years. Even though PVC and ABS are pretty much eternal, we're nevertheless wary of any yellowing or flaking. Other than the yellowing Hori Trackballs that we unearthed a few weeks back, everything we've found that's been manufactured with plastic has been in pristine shape.

For today's offer, NCS attempts to sell a few cases of the PC-Engine RAU-30 Rom Adapter. All inventory is brand spanking new and complete with inner styrofoam tray, original instructions in a baggie, two plastic feet, and of course the new RAU-30 adapter. Although the adapters are in mint condition, the outer cardboard packaging is less than perfect and looks rough. Cardboard simply isn't as durable as plastic as time motors onwards. The RAU-30 allows PC-Engine Super-Grafx users the means to connect the awkwardly shaped console to the CD-Rom interface (IFU-30).

Product Condition
NCS' remaining RAU-30 inventory is brand new and packaged in the original factory cardboard box. Although the contents of each RAU-30 is in perfect and brand new condition, please note that the outer cardboard box shows signs of wear, dents, and other imperfections.

Sale Offering

Pricing per PC-Engine Rom Adapter RAU-30 is set at US$59.90 each. If you reside in the USA, NCS recommends UPS Ground shipping for the most economical domestic service. International customers are encouraged to select USPS First Class Airmail at approximately US$21.
