TOYS Persona 4: Kuma Figure - New Import, In Stock

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Japanese manufacturer Wave pays tribute to Persona 4 by launching a series of figures which debut with a non-scale Kuma toy. Kuma is the reverse teardrop shaped bear whose color scheme is reminiscent of something that might be found in the circus. Big eyes, a wisp of a smile and a tiny nose are found on Kuma's half-moon face whilst two blue ears and a tuft of blue hair protrude through the top of Kuma's head.

Kuma's body is made of PVC and ABS but note that the zipper that serves as a point of demarcation between his body and head is made of soft vinyl. A zipper tab sticks out from the back of Kuma's "neck" but it's non-functional and is just there for show. Since the figure is nonscale, Wave decided to make Kuma petite and he measures a mere 9cm or 3.54" tall. A yellow disc is included with Kuma for display purposes. »Photos«

OST SaGa Series 20th Anniversary OST -PREMIUM BOX - New

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» The very first "SaGa" game was Makai Toushi SaGa which was released on the original Gameboy in December 1989. Square followed up with two sequels on the GB and eventually expanded the franchise with three Romancing Saga games on the Super Famicom and the Saga Frontier/Unlimited Saga/Minstrel titles on the Playstation consoles. That's a lot of games and a lot of music was created for those games.

A single CD nor even a quadruple CD package could hold all those tunes. There's so much music that Square's 20th Anniversary SaGa OST contains 20 CDs which hold over 500 music tracks for your listening pleasure. In addition to the CDs, Square's also throwing in a Creator's Interview DVD and a special 20th Anniversary Commemorative illustration. »Photos«
