TOYS Namco Classic Game Sound Controller - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» If we were commissioned with the task of creating sound keychains based on classic Namco games, Xevious and Famista wouldn't have been our first choices. The music in Xevious is distinctive but it's also numbingly monotonous in a loopy sort of way. Famista's BGM isn't distinctive at all and fits into the "ditty" category of music. Bandai has no qualms however and the first two Namco Classic Game Sound Controllers are based on the sound effects and BGM clips from Xevious and Famista.
Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late March 2009 at JPY900 or US$13.90 each from NCS.

TOY Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Zant Statue - Preorder

From the Manufacturer
Imported from the UK! First 4 Figures is proud to present Zant, the first in the 1/4 scale “Master Arts” line of Twilight Princess Centerpieces.

Zant was a servant of the Royal Family of the Twilight Realm who had devoted his life to serving them in the hopes of eventually succeeding them. However, he despised them for not taking any action to rid the Twili of their misery, and was eventually passed over due to his obvious greed and ambition. Rejected, disenfranchised and bitter Zant met Evil Ganondorf, who appeared to him as a god and promised to grant him untold power in exchange for his loyalty. Zant accepted and became so empowered, he became the self proclaimed “King of Twlighlight” at the expense of the Twili who were turned into shadow beasts. Only the bearer of the Triforce of Courage could be brave enough to face Zant, leading to a showdown of epic proportions!

Zant is wearing his distinctive helmet and armor. The helmet’s tongue is removable which reveals his mouth. He also comes with fully detailed clothing. The green line detail on the sleeves is luminous so it glows in the dark, creating an eerie effect. The white detail work on the base is also luminous. At 1/4 scale, he measures approximately 21 inches tall, including the base. Cast in high quality poly-stone, the statue is hand finished and hand painted. Comes dressed in an incredibly detailed and authentic hand tailored fabric costume. Created from official Twilight Princess game files has allowed First 4 Figures to faithfully recreate Zant’s distinct style and add fine detail.

Zant comes in deluxe full color packaging, hand numbered base, and includes an Authenticity Card which allows you to purchase the same number of the model next in the 1/4 Scale “Master Arts” Twilight Princess Centerpieces range. Limited to 750 pieces worldwide. This is the first in our 1/4 Scale “Master Arts” Twilight Princess Centerpieces range. Artist: Goran Sadojevich. Preorders are welcome to ship in May 2010.
