Wii Kamen Rider Climax Heroes Ozu - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» When the Playstation 2 was King of the gaming universe, Bandai's Kamen Rider games were released with alarming regularity on the console. Nowadays, the PS2 is no longer the console of choice for Kamen Rider - that honor goes to the Nintendo Wii 

   Kamen Riders from the Heisei era are returning to the Wii for another fighting game where two challengers face each other and commence with the punching and kicking. Kamen Rider W and Kamen Rider OOO (Ozu) are the latest members of the Kamen Rider family and they're playable in the game. Ozu is the red-and-black-helmeted player on the front cover of the game. Bandai touts a new fighting system where a battle system may be chosen for each bout and theme songs from the Kamen Rider television shows are included for added authenticity. Bandai is publishing the OOO game on the Wii and PSP - the PSP version supports ad hoc versus mode.

   Every copy of the first printing of Kamen Rider Ozu includes a Rider Ozu data-scan card which is included inside every copy of the game. Preorders for the PSP and Wii versions of Kamen Rider OOO are welcome to ship on December 2, 2010.

TOYS Oyasumi Bakura Naga Bakura Plush Doll Xl - Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» The Pokemon Onemuri Makura cushions from 2008 have been selling well for the past two years and we'll probably keep the Pochama version in stock for at least another 3 years. NCS isn't looking for more animal pillows but we're probably going to bring in the Oyasumi Bakura plush pillow.
   The upcoming pillow is larger than the Pokemon versions and appear just as comfy if the sleeping model in the promotional photo is to be believed. Oyasumi Bakura is a new character from Sanei which appears to be a bear or maybe some sort of woodchuck. Preorders are welcome to ship in January 2011 at JPY or US$25.90 from NCS. 

TOYS Rilakkuma Donut Reading Cushion - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» The bear known as Rilakkuma has a knack for stuffing sweets and pastries into his mouth and noshes indiscriminately at any hour of the day. Rilakkuma enjoys food as evidenced by his protruding belly and even his choice of seating looks like food.

   Behold the Rilakkuma Donut Reading Cushions which frankly look more like candy-flavored toilet seats than donuts. The "donut" on the left of the product photo looks like it was dipped in chocolate while the "donut" on the upper right appears to be strawberry-flavored. The cushions are meant to be placed on one's lap while reading so that your arms are held up while grasping a book. Each cushion measures 60cm in diameter and preorders are welcome to ship in January 2011.

TOYS Rilakkuma Square Fry Pan - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» You know what you get when you fry eggs in a rectangular pan? No, not round eggs... rectangle-shaped eggs which are perfect for insertion into sandwiches that utilize square-shaped bread. Rectangular pans are also good for frying sausage links, chicken wings, and maybe a bone-in pork chop. Just one pork chop at a time though in the upcoming Rilakkuma Square Fry Pan. Two varieties are on offer from SAN-X as follows:

(A) Brown Rilakkuma Fry Pan which is coated with nonstick material
(B) White Korillakuma Fry Pan which is also coated with nonstick material

   Each pan measures 35 x 14 x 6cm in dimension and preorders are welcome to ship in January 2011 at US$23.90 each.
