TOYS Final Fantasy XIII Play Arts -Kai- Odin Action Figure

From the Publisher
Imported from Japan!
Square Enix's Play Arts -Kai- figures are an improved version of their popular Play Arts action figure series. With a larger scale, a greater attention to detail, more articulation points, and additional parts, these are their finest action figure yet. Based on Final Fantasy XIII, the highly-anticipated role-playing game coming to the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 in Spring 2010, this deluxe action figure recreates the Odin summons from the new game. The chief Norse god, Odin transforms from a human-like god into an impressive horse that can be summoned by Lightning, the game's primary character.

   Preorders have shipped as of yesterday but please note this item is currently on backorder. Additional inventory is expected within the next 2 weeks.

Wii Karaoke Joysound Wii Super DX - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» The dour economy hasn't put a damper on karaoke bars in New York City. Establishments in Manhattan are still doing a brisk business and they'll probably continue to fare well because sometimes, people just need to sing. By themselves, with friends, and occasionally in front of strangers, folks are singing. Hudson has rode the karaoke train on the Wii with three Joysound releases already and a fourth game is headed home this December.
   Karaoke Joysound Wii Super DX features a battle mode, a national ranking mode, and the ability to chat with fellow crooners. The disc contains a total of 70 songs and nursery rhymes but an additional 65,000 songs may be utilized by accessing Hudson's song subscription service. Please note that Wii Points may be used to purchase the subscription if you reside within the United States. Preorders are welcome to ship on December 16, 2010.

PS3 Castlevania Lords of Shadow - Import Preorder

   Castlevania:  Lords of Shadow is a dark and vivid new re-imagining of the Castlevania mythology. It is the end of days and ungodly powers isolate the Earth.

His beloved wife was brutally murdered by the evil forces of darkness and her soul trapped for eternity.

PSP Shining Hearts - Import Re-Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» Shining Hearts follows the story of a boy who meets a girl suffering from amnesia. Boy decides to become a hero and help the girl with her troubles within and stave off the randy pirates who're hot on her heels. Sega has opened up re-preorders for Shining Hearts which is shipping on the PSP this December. A re-preorder is usually done when insufficient reservations are gathered up during the first preorder solicitation period. Sega has also announced a preorder incentive in the form of a "Pirate Treasure Fan Disc" which will be given away in 50% ratio. The contents of the fan disc bonus are as follows:

1) Shining Hearts character data and illustrations booklet
2) Shining Hearts promotional card
3) Kikuta Hiroki Music Soundtrack Collection
4) PSP and PC Desktop icons, wallpaper, and clock
5) Collection of voice acting snippets from the game
6) The opening cinema from Shining Hearts

   The announcement of the preorder bonus will probably be good enough to spike preorders for Sega. They'd spike preorders a lot more if they announced that the preorder ratio was 100%. Just a suggestion.

   Reservations are welcome to ship on 
December 16, 2010 at JPY5980 or US$66.90 from NCS.
