TOYS Love Plus Beach Queens: Nene Anegasaki - Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» First there was the "Race Queen" in Japanese motorsport culture - busty model-types who appeared in racing venues to enhance the visuals. Next comes the "Beach Queen" which might be defined as follows:

Beach Queen
\bēch kwēn\ (Noun) A high-ranking woman with social proof and a robust bosom who may be found (most times) at sandy geological outposts which abut the ocean.

The honor for the first figure to appear in the Love Plus Beach Queens toy series is Nene Anegasaki who's in the process of removing her denim shorts. The figure is sculpted to 1/10 scale and measures 16cm or 6.29" tall and an extra face is included to change Nene's expression. One point of articulation is located on Nene's neck so her head may be tilted. Preorders are welcome to ship in August 2010 at JPY3800 or US$46.90 from NCS.

TOYS One Piece Portrait of Pirates Neo-DX Jinbei - Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» The One Piece manga/animation property has introduced fans to numerous characters who had cranky dispositions, heroic hearts, or odd appearances. NCS categorizes Jinbei in the "odd appearance" category because he's colored blue, blubbery, and has webbing on his hands and feet. As if that wasn't enough, Jinbei also possesses a face that only a mother could love thanks to the tusks that protrude from his mouth and Jin's perennial angry demon face. Won't easily find a smile on that mug.

Megahouse is inducting Jinbei into its popular Portrait of Pirates series of toys which is known for its build quality and well-sculpted forms. Jinbei measures 25cm or 9.84" tall which is roughly 1/10 scale since series creator Eiichiro Oda lists his "actual" height at 301cm. A crimson
hippari is wrapped around Jinbei's prodigious girth which is tied together with a blue sash. Beneath the hippari, witnesses may view a few red tats that are etched on Jinbei's skin. Preorders are welcome to ship in November 2010 at JPY8000 or US$96.90 from NCS.

TOYS To Heart 2 Komaki Manaka Summer Ver 1/6 Scale Figure

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» Whenever a To Heart 2 toy is announced, we assume that it's going to be a Tamaki Kousaka figure. Not this time. This time around, it's Komaki Manaki who gets the PVC treatment in 1/6 scale. In the To Heart 2 game, Manaka is a classmate of Tamaki's who volunteers at the library and serves as class rep. The Manaka Summer figure is decked out in a pink 2-piece bikini accompanied by a yellow inner tube which she grasps with both hands. The inner tube may be unhanded from Manaki to show the newfound swimsuit model in her skivvies. Preorders are welcome to ship in late September 2010 at JPY8500 or US$98.90 from NCS.

TOYS Chichinoe Plus Infinity Pin-Up Lady Hibiki - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» An older gentleman we've known for a few years once opined, "Son, anything more than a handful just goes to waste." It's unclear if he took into account the fact that humans have different hand sizes but his wisdom has fallen on deaf ears in the case of the Chichinoe Plus Infinity Pin-Up Lady Hibiki figure. The upcoming Chichinoe+ figure sports an unusually large bosom but there's more. In addition to what Orchid Seed calls the "Small Size" (shown on the right side of the photo), two additional bosoms which are progressively larger may be swapped onto the figure to augment her breasts in a highly artificial manner. Preorders for the 1/5 scale 31cm figure are welcome to ship in September 2010.

PSP Monster Hunter Nikki Poka Poka Airu Mura - Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» The Airu (cats) of the Monster Hunter games are the stars of the upcoming Monster Hunter Nikki Poka Pika Airu Mura PSP action-adventure which is centered around Airu Village. The versatile cats live their lives in the village where farming, hunting, and cooking are daily routines. Since Airu Village is situated on an island, the bodies of water surrounding the village are ripe with fish to be fetched out of the drink. The Pugi creatures from the Monster Hunter canon also appear in the game to provide companionship and interaction.

In the Airu Guild, adventurers may curry assignments for earnings and every contribution by the residents leads to expansion of the village. Guild quests can be either exploration jaunts or collection exercises where the party of Airu work towards enhancing the village. When exploring, monsters are inevitably encountered and the group of Airu attack as one cohesive unit to deal as much damage as possible. Airu Village supports multi-player gaming where up to three gamers can cooperate on Guild quests. Players who have the PSP version of Monster Hunter 2nd G can convert save-data from the game for use in Airu Village. As a bit of bonus content, Hello Kitty appears in the village in the form of costumes that may be worn by the Airu.

Preorders for the Japanese PSP import Monster Hunter Diary: Poka Poka Airu Village are welcome to ship on August 26, 2010. The first printing of the game includes a bonus DLC card inside every copy.

TOYS Batman G-Shock with Batmobile Choro-Q - In Stock

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Casio originally released the Batman G-Shock last year and sales didn't meet expectations. Maybe the retro yellow face of the LCD watch wasn't all that appealing to the Batman-loving public. Apparently, even the caption below the LCD screen didn't grab buyers. The caption reads, "From Bruce Wayne's Dark Murderous Night of Despair Was Born a New Hope for Gotham City. The Batman!" The total production run of the Batman G-Shock was limited to a mere 1000 sets but only ~60% has sold through thus far. Japanese distributors appear to be antsy and they're discounting the price from the original JPY16800 to JPY11800 or US$129.90 from NCS.

The Batman G-Shock is bundled with two silver-colored Batmobile Choro-Q toys - a variant in normal driving mode and a second version with fully raised body armor. The Batmobiles are exclusive to the Batman G-Shock bundle and aren't available in any other sales capacity.
All preorders are shipping today and new orders are welcome to ship this afternoon.
