TOYS The Legend of Zelda Choco Eggs - Import Preorder

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Psst. We have a secret. We've been selling single Zelda Twilight Princess gashapon toys for approximately US$50 each. One little toy. $50. Each. We'll be able to start the hedge fund once we sell a few more.
   This wasn't by design either. From the recesses of the old warehouse which closed last month, we've found all sorts of old inventory. Even found some Metroid toys but those are spoken for already.

   When the new Zelda Choco Egg toys from Furuta were announced, we knew that we'd be importing a bunch of them. The only problem is the little 11cm" figures are encased within thin chocolate egg shells. Chocolate has a shelf life of about 1 year. Our time horizon for toy storage is usually a decade so the chocolate will probably be rendered inert, tasteless, and possibly toxic when the year 2021 hits. A total of 11 standard Zelda figures are featured in the set along with a secret figure. Please note that the manufacturer is only selling this toy in factory cases of 10 toys so it's impossible to get the whole set by buying a case or possibly even two cases. Preorders for factory cases are welcome to ship in January 2011.

GEAR Mobile Suit Gundam Zeon N3-B Jacket - Import Preorder

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» According to one of the old codgers in our office building, "It's going to be a miserable winter this year." Excuse me, but what winter isn't miserable? "Cold," "drafty," "shivering," "frostbitten," and "frozen" aren't exactly conditions that promote comfort. NCS has an answer for the codger however:

Mobile Suit Gundam Zeon N3-B Jacket.

   He'll probably balk at the $229.90 price tag however. We've never tried to sell him anything since he's too cagey for us but we'll try some boiler-room tactics on him when the jackets arrive. Cospa's Zeon N3-B jacket is made of polyester for the outer shell and nylon for the inside shell. The hood is lined with luxurious fur. Is it ermine, sable, or mink? Nah, it's fluffy fur that's woven from the hide of a beast known as acrylic. PETA can mount a protest against someone else. Preorders are welcome to ship in January 2011.  

COSP Arakawa "Under the Bridge" Hoshi Kaburigurumi - Preorder

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» When you were a little girl, you wanted to be a star. Not just any star however. A star as in a real star - like the sun which shines high up in the sky. As you grew older and mama told you to stop all that nonsense, your dreams of becoming a star died and a little piece of your heart broke off and shriveled up into a mangy piece of beef jerky.

   It might be too late for you to be a star but other little girls (and grown- ass men, as shown in the photo) can become stars. No, really. Stars. Simply don the "Star Helmet" and you're instantly transformed into a star. The only bad thing about the star helmet is that it won't be shipping from Cospa until next year which is too late for Halloween. The star measures 60cm in diameter and is free size which means it'll latch onto most human heads. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late January 2011 at JPY3800.
