TOYS SR Video Game Robotics - New Import, In Stock

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Yujin made a splash with their line of Shooting Game Historica toys which appealed to toy collectors as well as gamers. They're up to three volumes of Shooting Game Historica already along with matching SP packaging variants. Yujin branches off the Shooting Historica series with a new collection dubbed SR Video Game Robotics which celebrates five mechs from olden video games. The games that the robots hail from aren't ancient but they are from the 16-bit generation with the exception of the "Blast Runner Assault Robot" which is one of four mech types from Sega's RingEDGE coin-op titled Border Break. The games and attendant mechs:

Border Break - Blast Runner Assault Armament Type I
» Cyberbots- BX-02 Blodia
» Assault Suits Leynos- AS-5E3 Leynos
Assault Suits Valken - AS-117 Valken
» Wolf Fang

With SR Video Game Robotics, Yujin (now owned by Takara Tomy) makes an important evolution from the Shooting Game Historica series. All of the robots in the set are made of articulated parts which allow each mech to be posed for action stances. The quality of the toys, in our opinion, is top-notch as today's gallery photos should convey. When we inspected the mechs yesterday and discovered the love that went into the toys, we tried to order a few more factory cases to have and to hold. Sadly, all Japanese distributors have sold out of this item but a possible S.P. edition of the Robotics may be our chance to order more.
NCS is supplying SR Robotics in complete sets of five toys at the price of US$38.90 for new orders. All preorders have shipped of as yesterday afternoon and new orders are welcome to ship today.
