TOYS Dragon Quest IX Smile Slime Tower Plush - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» In the original Dragon Quest games, the slimes were just enemies to be smacked and slain in very short order. In dungeon crawling lingo, the slimes were "cannon fodder." As the slimes grew in popularity and stature within the Dragon Quest universe, they began to take on other roles. There was even a couple of Dragon Quest games in which a Blue Slime played the part of protagonist. It was in Slime Morimori Dragon Quest where we watched a Slime ricochet off walls, squeeze itself into a puddle, and dash through dungeons. The Slime could even stack fellow Slimes on top of itself by dashing into the beasts to launch them upwards and then catching the falling beasts on the top of its head to make a tower.

Square Enix brings the Slime Tower to life with their upcoming
Dragon Quest IX Smile Slime Tower Plush which features a Blue Slime on the bottom, an Orange Slime in the middle, and a Green Slime crowning the whole shebang. Preorders are welcome for a "Small" version (US$15.90) which measures 16cm tall and a Medium version (US$38.90) which towers 31cm in height. Reservations will ship in mid-late December 2009.
