TOYS Dragon Ball Kai Trantrip Costume - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» Halloween is nearly a year away but it's never too early to start planning your 2010 costume.

Should you opt to become Goku this year, Cospa's got you covered with their new Dragon Ball Kai Costume which is available in Small, Medium, and Large sizes.

TOYS Iron Man 2 Mark-IV Artfx Statue - Import Preorder

From the Distributor
A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! In May of 2010, Robert Downey Jr. will reprise his role as Tony Stark and his heroic alter ego Iron Man in the hottest sequel of the year, Iron Man 2! To commemorate the triumphant return of this iconic character, Kotobukiya is proud to add the IRON MAN 2 MOVIE IRON MAN MARK IV ARTFX STATUE to the Marvel Studios collection!

After surviving imprisonment by terrorists, billionaire industrialist Tony Stark created the Mark II armor suit. This was followed up soon after by the iconic Mark III suit used to battle Stane and his Iron Monger suit at the culmination of the first film. In the sequel the ever-productive Stark improves on his own designs yet again with the Mark IV, the absolute cutting edge in high-tech personal armor suit and man-sized weaponry. Sleeker and more powerful than the previous versions, the Mark IV is visually impressive and will look great in your collection!

Sculpted by Ryoichi Ito, Iron Man stands approximately 13 inches tall (1/6th scale) atop an exclusive cylindrical Repulsor Transmitter base. To show off the Iron Avenger's mighty power the Mark IV includes LED lights in the eyes, chest, fists, and base! In addition, the switch to activate the lights is located on the top of the base for easy activation. This pre-painted, snap-fit ARTFX Statue is easy to assemble so you can have your Iron Man Mark IV on display in no time! Preorders ship in May 2010.

TOYS Marvel Red Hulk Fine Art Statue - Import Preorder

From the Distributor
A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! The Hulk has been a staple superhero of the Marvel Comics for years, battling foes across the universe in epic storylines. In 2008 the gamma-powered powerhouse met his match in a mysterious crimson-hued mirror image: the RED HULK. Massively powerful and frighteningly intelligent, the villain has all of the Hulk's strengths and none of his weaknesses. With a mean streak matching his might, the Red Hulk (also known as "Rulk") has beaten many of Marvel Comics' superheroes and remains a threat to the entire Earth in the current Fall of the Hulk story. Based on the stunning art of Ed McGuinness, the Red Hulk Fine Art Statue continues Koto's tradition of excellence.

The unstoppable Red Hulk rampages across a blasted volcanic landscape, preparing a lethal blow for his foes. The brute is absolutely covered in rippling muscles, with muscular definition rivaling (and even exceeding) that of Bruce Banner's gamma-powered form. The detail on the tremendous villain's intricate sculpt highlights every sinew and fiber of his being, while the fantastic paint work emphasizes his skin's subtle crimson gradations. A dark smoky gray appears on the Red Hulk's shredded pants, close-cropped hair, and finger and toe nails. Gleaming white teeth stand in stark contrast to the monster's gaping maw, while his tiny beady eyes shine with a hellish yellow. You can display the Red Hulk in two different ways according to your preferences with two included heads; one depicts the monster grinning in evil glee, while the other is a mask of rage crisscrossed by a yellow "X."

Sculpted by master artist Eric Sosa, Red Hulk stands almost 13 inches tall (1/6th scale), veritably leaping off of his exclusive "georama" base. Not only does the volcanic earth look great on its own, it will connect to the base on the upcoming Hulk to form a dynamic battle scene! Don't miss out on the character voted #1 by the fans at!
