TOYS Revoltech #097 Lupin the Third Figure - Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» Arsene Lupin is a master thief who's highly skilled, good with a gun, and would probably outsmart Danny Ocean if another sequel to Ocean's Eleven got the greenlight. Despite being somewhat goofy, Lupin has the wherewithal to get what he wants and he does it with panache and style.

   Lupin gets his proper respects from Kaiyodo in the form of a Revoltech toy figure which ships in a few months. The Lupin Revoltech contains 13 joints which allow for remarkable poses including a wiry kneeling posture and another one where Lupin has apparently dislocated his neck. Props included with the Lupin figure include a table that looks like the same one that was included with the Professor Layton Revoltech, a chair, a safe (to crack), three extra faces, nine extra hands, a wired hook to ride, a mounting stand, and five bullet marks to create scenes where Lupin is being shot at.

    Preorders for the Revoltech Lupin figure are welcome to ship in mid-late November 2010 at JPY2800 or US$33.90 from NCS.  

TOYS Ikkitousen XX Choun Shiryu Blue China Dress Ver - Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» Choun Shiryu dons a skintight blue China dress and kneels down for a reason which we can't divulge right now. As Choun kneels, she closes her eyes and holds a blade in front of her just in case a vagabond decides that it's his time for glory. That's the storyline (in our minds, at least) behind the upcoming Choun Shiryu figure from R-Line which is sculpted to 1/7 scale and measures 14cm or 5.51" tall. Preorders are welcome to ship in late October 2010 at JPY7600 or US$108.90 from NCS. Due to the size of the Choun figure, NCS recommends only shipping UPS Ground within the continental United States to avoid incurring dimension weight air charges.
