TOYS Star Wars Light Saber Kei Oritatami Kasa - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» A few years ago, NCS stocked a Star Wars Light Saber Umbrella from Happinet that can best be described as a "big ass umbrella" which featured an image of Darth Vader. When May 2010 rolls around, Taito will release another Star Wars umbrella which is the telescoping type. In its native form, the umbrella measures a mere 30cm (11.81") in length but press a single button and the umbrella shoots upwards and outwards in a rain-shielding polyester bloom that measures 95cm or 37.40" in diameter. Three images are printed onto the fabric of the umbrella: the Death Star, an X-Wing Fighter, and the Millennium Falcon. Preorders ship in May 2010.

TOYS Hello Kitty Colorful Frog Plush - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» Cats and frogs don't mix. We know this because frogs live in ponds and laze upon lily pads while felines generally don't hang around large bodies of water. Despite the differences, Eikoh stitches Hello Kitty into a frog costume. Not one frog costume. Four frog costumes. From the left of the product photo and moving right, the colors are: lime green, aqua blue, pastel pink, and violet. Just violet. Each plush measures 16cm or 6.29" tall and roughly 9cm or 3.54" in width. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late May 2010 at JPY800 or US$13.90 each from NCS.
