TOYS Itazura Coin Bank Mikeniko Kitty - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» The market value of assets big and small, paper and physical got demolished in the great plunge of 2008-2009. It was an unstoppable crash wave that destroyed value and obliterated trading accounts the world over. Unable to meet that margin call when CRUDE tossed its cookies and dropped to $33.85 in early 2009? Too bad. Your leveraged position got sold out. You blew up and got knocked out of the game. Madoff took a bite too and the term "Ponzi" became fashionable again. Wealth got transferred and moved across the table in a big way.

To replenish their savings and salvage their portfolios, average citizens need the proper tools and guidance to help rebuild wealth. Hedging long positions long term is a losing game but diversification isn't. Wall Street as a whole probably won't be looking to hold any punters victims suckers investors' hands so in addition to diversification, NCS recommends the Itazura Coin Bank - Mikeniko Kitty Version. Drop a dime or in this case, a JPY500 piece on top of the box and a curious kitty paws the coin and brings it into the cardboard box it calls home. The sensor on top of the box is decorated to look like a dish with fish parts on top. Fit the JPY100 coin (or nickel) onto the space between those fish parts to activate the bashful cat who loves to save.

Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late May 2010 at JPY1800 or US$26.90 from NCS. The coin bank runs on three "AA" batteries and accepts coins that are 2.70cm in diameter and under. For us Yanks, this capacity accommodates quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies. For Japanese folks, the coin bank can accept JPY500, JPY100, JPY50, JPY10, and JPY5 coins. The coin bank is available in either white or brown colored felines.

SOTW PC-Engine XHE-3 MSX Controller Adapter - Clearance

NCS Sale of the Week Offering: February 15, 2010
Original Release in Japan: March
16, 1995
«©NCSX» Brand new and factory boxed XHE-3 MSX Controller Adapter for the PC-Engine which allows MSX joysticks and joypads to be used with the PC-Engine. Micomsoft produced a lineup of MSX controllers which were fairly popular back in the day. Instead of manufacturing a separate lineup of controllers for the PC-Engine, Micomsoft introduced the XHE-3 Adapter which bridged the MSX and PC-Engine so owners of both platforms could use a single controller on either one. The packaging lists compatibility with the Micomsoft XE-1PRO, XE-1ST2, and XE-1AP but any standard MSX controller can be used. Further, please note that Mega-Drive controllers are not fully compatible - the "B" button is not mapped but "A" and "C" work. .

Product Condition
NCS' remaining inventory is brand new and factory boxed in the original cardboard container. The condition of the packaging is in good structural shape but please note that there are visible signs of wear and weathering caused by decades of storage. The adapters inside are however in pristine and shiny condition.

Sale Offering

Pricing per XHE-3 Adapter is set at US$30.90 each. If you reside in the USA, NCS recommends USPS Priority shipping for the most economical domestic service. Please click on the Postal link below the UPS shipping options to display Postal shipping rates. Thanks.
