SHOP One Piece "Start Living" Shopping Bag - New, In Stock

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» The "Plastic Vortex" is a manmade garbage heap situated between Hawaii and the continental United States. That swirling morass of detritus in the Pacific Ocean contains billions of pounds of plastic shopping bags, baby bottles, and Hannah Montana stickers. Help slow the growth of the vortex by using cloth shopping bags.

Maybe the One Piece "Start Living" Shopping Bag will hit the spot which measures
40 x 36 x 13cm and is made of 100% cotton. The saying on the bag reads "Start Living Before You Start Dying" which might encourage risk taking, alcoholism, gluttony, and burglary since different folks are going to interpret the words in their own ways. Y'know, they might live it up because a shopping bag told them to. New orders are welcome.

BOOK The Eyes of Bayonetta - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» Bayonetta was/is a hot game. We're still replaying it. Whenever a new Bayonetta-related product is announced, we'll order it for ourselves even if we don't bring it in for mass consumption since there's a global recession going on and yadda yadda yadda. Even if a company is crazy enterprising enough to solicit preorders for Bayonetta hair extensions or Bayonetta soup dumplings, we're going to get them.

Enterbrain's The Eyes of Bayonetta book isn't a crazy kind of product. It'll actually sell more than 3 copies because it's a comprehensive tome packed full of designs, illustrations, and artwork of the heroine Bayonetta, the cast of characters, locations, and the weapons featured in the game. What we're most looking forward to are the illustrations of characters and weapons that weren't used in the game but will be featured in the book. As an added bonus, a DVD is included which contains staff commentary on the design process and how Bayonetta went from pencil sketch to full-blown action heroine. As second bonus, two foldout posters are included in the book. Preorders are welcome to ship on June 30, 2010 at JPY3500 or US$63.90 from NCS. Pricing reflects the overnight shipping costs to import a 300+ page hardcover book from Japan to the USA.

TOYS Mizugi Kanojo Mizuho 1/6 Scale Figure - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» In the first episode of the Mizugi Kanojo animated series, viewers are introduced to a character named Mizuho and her boyfriend Hiro. While in bed together, Hiro grabs a chunk of Mizuho's bulging belly and insinuates that she's getting fat. He suggests that she do a little exercise at the pool where he works. While at the pool, Hiro plays the part of swimming tutor and in the middle of the lesson, Hiro gets overly excited and decides to take things into his own hands. Literally. The upcoming Mizuho figure from manufacturer Beat places Mizuho on top of an inflatable crocodile and she's in a sheer blue swimsuit like the one she wears in the Mizugi episode. It's so sheer that anyone in the local vicinity can glance in Miz's direction and see everything. Repeat: Everything. Preorders for the Mizuho figure are welcome to ship in late August 2010 at JPY17800 or US$218.90 from NCS.

TOYS Genba Kensho Suspense Mascot - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» There's a codger in our building who's knowledgeable about the principles of feng-shui. Occasionally, we'll ask for his opinion on some of the products that we peddle. For example, the codger disapproved of the Horror Summer Vibrating Pen from a few years ago but we imported them anyway. This morning, he also frowned on the Genso Kensho Suspense Mascots because according to him, "A toy that's a representation of a chalk outline from a fatal crime scene isn't exactly auspicious."

Epoch's "suspense" toy is not properly named. There's no suspense in chalk outlines. There might've been suspense and drama prior to the sketching of the chalk outline... but none in the outline itself. In any case, six styles are on offer including one that appears to be of a person who has fallen from a building. Yet another one appears to depict someone who died while dancing. We appreciate Epoch's photos of "dead" people in their preorder solicitation sheet since they get the point of the outlines across. Preorders for the set of toys are welcome to ship in late September 2010.
