TOYS figma Persona 3 Aegis - New Import, In Stock

NCS Product 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 releases 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 Manufacturer
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.

TOYS Persona 4 Kujikawa Rise 1/8 Scale - New, Sold Out

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Mitsuru Kirijou was the token redhead in Persona 3 and Kujikawa Rise serves as the ginger of choice in Persona 4. In the game, Rise is an idol who abruptly retires from showbiz to live with her grandmother in Yasoinaba. Rise keeps busy by working with 'Gamma at her Marukyu Tofu Store where patrons linger to catch a glimpse of the celebrity. She even attracts stalkers. Since Kujikawa has the heart and training of an idol, her 1/8 scale figure (20.5cm or 8.07" tall) from Wave depicts her in a pose that's brimming with flair and showmanship. Wayne Newton, is that you?

Kujikawa is dressed in an black outfit with a skirt that features a hound's tooth design. The skin of her thighs breaks up the dark colors below her waist and a yellow bandana is wrapped 'round her neck. Ms Rise's trademark pink glasses are included in the package as a bonus which may be fitted onto her face so that she looks like a librarian or a schoolmarm.

CD FFCC: The Crystal Bearers Music Collections - New Import

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Square shipped the Crystal Bearers a couple of weeks ago and we've thoroughly enjoyed the variety of music in the game. Without a proper soundtrack however, we had no idea what the tracks were called while playing the game - that is, until today. The Crystal Bearers soundtrack spans two CDs which contain a total of 70 tracks. We gave it a quick sampling earlier this morning and we think it's safe to say that it's all good. There's country, jazz, celtic, blues, rock, orchestral, and even what sounds like folk in the collection. The country music is so country that they even brought out the fiddles. Sounded like a hoedown was about to start.
The compositions on CD1 are all from
Hidenori Iwasaki and Ryo Yamazaki while tracks on CD2 are composed by Kumi Tanioka, Nobuo Uematsu, and Ryo Yamazaki. All preorders have shipped as of yesterday and new orders are welcome for dispatch this afternoon.

Wii Fullmetal Alchemist: Daughter of the Dusk - New Import

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Intrigue and treachery are afoot in the sequel to last year's Full Metal Alchemist: Prince of Darkness. Continuing the storyline from the first game, Prince Claudio Rico Aerugo from the country of Aerugo is negotiating a peace treaty with the nation of Amestris but things are not as they seem with subterfuge, snipers, plots, and more all in play.

Edward Elric is aware of the machinations behind the peace treaty and Roy Mustang eventually also learns that the intentions of both parties are not particularly sincere. To avoid outright war between the two nations, Edward, Roy, and the rest of the gang work to stop an assassination plot in motion.
Edward and Alphonse explore the land of Amestris and engage in short flick-action sequences where the Remote is wagged to trigger cues during the game. For example, in one sequence, the brothers have to leap off a platform by moving the Remote. In another Remote waving sequence, Edward has to jump and duck over/under obstacles as he runs across the screen. In yet another sequence, Winry is tasked with performing maintenance on Alphonse's armored arm to keep it squeak-free and polished. Mini-games also pop up from time to time that require shooting skill, When exploring the world, the Remote controls a little cursor which points in the direction that you want the brothers to run.
