GEAR Final Fantasy XIII Lightning Strap - New Import, In Stock

NCS Product Synopsis
Lightning struck (sorry) when Final Fantasy XIII shipped on the Japanese Playstation 3 late last year to eager fans around the globe. Sure, most stateside players couldn't read the text in the adventure but that didn't stop gamers from doling out a nifty US$100 for a chance to check out the latest Final Fantasy adventure. A treasure trove of merchandise has already been released to dovetail with the game but Square keeps the gravy train rolling with some more goodies this year.

For the first week of March, NCS brings in the FFXIII Original Lightning Strap which features a black metal plate with silver-colored trim that's jagged like a bolt of lightning. Get it? Lightning. The plate measures H15 x W29 x D2mm in dimension and a pair of Swarovski crystals are embedded on one end of the bolt. A second smaller plate measuring H35 x W5 x D1mm is also tethered to the retaining loop. In addition to serving as a strap accessory, the metal lightning bolt may also be used as a pendant or an earring. Probably.

GEAR Professor Layton Kyouju Strap - New Import, In Stock

NCS Product Synopsis
Professor Hershel Layton is an experienced problem/puzzle solver and his young assistant Luke Triton isn't too shabby himself. They're both starring in Furyu's new Professor Layton Kyouju Strap which is part of the "Eternal Diva" movie merchandise. Each strap consists of a colorful plastic character piece, a purple plastic gemstone, and a glossy black finger strap with loop attachment. The Professor Layton Eternal Diva logo is printed on the side of the black finger strap to ensure recognition. Each strap and character measures approximately 3" in length.

Joining Layton and Luke in the Kyouju Strap are two females - Remi Altiwa in her trademark yellow outfit and the lanky ginger named Flora who wears a pink dress and was also in Pandora's Box. Preorders have shipped as of yesterday and new orders are welcome to ship today.

PSP Playstation Portable Blossom Pink - New Import, In Stock

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Spring is just a few weeks away and the cherry blossoms on trees are set to bloom once temperatures begin averaging in the 50s. Dogwood trees are also scheduled to shoot out bunches of pink blossoms to greet onlookers as Spring marches into view. Although the Blossom Pink PSP can't match the majesty of Mother Nature, it looks pretty snazzy anyway. NCS attempts to use the word "snazzy" at least once a year.

The closest approximation of the type of pink that Sony paints the Blossom Pink PSP is lipstick. To be exact, "Pink Diamond" lipstick because the PSP has a glossy shimmer to it. Stare at the pink patina and marvel at how the color matches the hue on the lips of Kogals who've applied a little too much Pink Diamond. All preorders have shipped as of yesterday and new orders are welcome to ship this afternoon.
