TOYS SR Gashapon Disney Fireball Set - Old Import, In Stock

NCS Product Synopsis
Update: April 05, 2010
«©NCSX» Within a relatively short amount of time, Disney's Drossel has become something of a sensation in the Japanese marketplace. Drossel appears in the Fireball CG shorts with a robot named Gedächtnis and the two banter about inane subjects. A number of toys inspired by Fireball have been released already and Takara Tomy gets into the action with a gashapon set which features four figures. In the product photo, the figure variants are: (1) Drossel tries on her combat headgear with the blue rings, (2) appears with her twintails (3) wears the Obruchev flight unit, and (4) gets gussied up in the Belinda combat unit. Each figure measures roughly 11cm or 4.33" tall and every figure is articulated so Drossel may be positioned into various poses and special postures. «Photo Gallery»

TOYS Ikkitousen Kanu Unchou Bathing Figure - New, Sold Out

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» After a strenuous full body workout on the battlefield, Kanu Unchou doesn't retire to the local tavern or laze around inside a hostess lounge. No, she relaxes in a transparent bathtub by her lonesome and reminisces about the time she pounded out the smackdown on Jokou Koumei. «Photo Gallery»

Toy manufacturer Daiki Kougyo releases a Kanu Unchou Bathing Figure which is based on an illustration by
Miyazawa Tsutomu. The figure is sculpted to 1/6 scale and measures 27cm or 10.62" in length while the bathtub spans 29cm or 11.41" which is enough to capture Kanu. The sculpture is by Hiroshi Sato (Overdard) and Kanu's completely nude although her hair has been placed in strategic spots to maintain some semblance of decorum. Daiki's promotional photos show the bathtub filled with what appears to be green slime but note that this liquid isn't included with the figure. We're going to fill ours with Perrier just for the bubbles.
