DRINK e-Capcom Okami Teacup Set - New Import, In Stock

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Okami was a beautiful game. Pretty graphics, vibrant sound, and a hard charging wolf-heroine-goddess all conspired to create an engaging Wii experience. There hasn't been an outrageous amount of Okami merchandise released in the market but NCS imported some Amaterasu plushes from e-Capcom a few years back (which we couldn't resist) and the Okami-themed tea cups arrived yesterday.

The e-Capcom exclusive Okami Teacup Set ships in a wooden box and two heat-sensitive cups are included. The first cup features a flaming image of Amaterasu whilst the second cup is imprinted with an illustration of Chibiterasu from Okamiden and a little girl named Kuni astride her back. To reveal these images, a liquid that's warmer than 40˚C or 104˚F must be poured into the cup to trigger the heat-sensitive paint on the cup.

Please note NCS pricing reflects special arrangements to import the Teacup Sets from e-Capcom along with express shipping costs for the relatively heavy wooden sets.

TOY Okami-den Chibiterasu Plush - Preorders?
NCS will be importing the e-Capcom exclusive Chibiterasu plush as seen to the left but we plan on only bringing them in for ourselves. We have a little Okami shrine that is crying for this toy. The plush by itself costs roughly $57 from e-Capcom within Japan but the shipping charges per plush will be approximately $50 since each Chibiterasu measures 45cm or 17.71" long and they'll be shipping in their own containers. However, if anyone's interested in forking over US$100 for a 'lil wolf-godling plush, we'll accept reservations for a week or until e-Capcom closes preorders on their shop. NCS pricing is set at US$118.90 per plush + shipping. Sorry.
