TOYS Ikaruga White Fine Scale Model Kit - Import Preorder

From the Manufacturer
   A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! For fans of the shooting game Ikaruga (first released by Treasure in arcades in 2001 and then subsequently on Dreamcast, GameCube, and Xbox Live), this is a very exciting time. Kotobukiya is proud to present the main player unit from the game in a brand new Fine Scale Model Kit, IKARUGA WHITE!

   Based on an original garage kit by Isetani Hiroshi, then further improved by the original designer Suzuki Yasushi, the Ikaruga is a fantastic futuristic fighter plane and the only weapon able to take down the Horai. A completely unique craft with twin engine pods that absolutely bristles with weaponry, this is a great model kit for intermediate builders with approximately 150 pieces. Accurate down to the smallest detail, the Ikaruga White features all of the cool mechanical parts you've come to know and love from the game, and as a bonus it includes special homing laser effects parts! The plane is over 6 inches tall (1/144 scale) and can be displayed on a special pyramid-like base decorated with the motif of the game's final boss. Finally, the Ikaruga White comes packaged in a box decorated with an all new illustration by Suzuki Yasushi!
Preorders are welcome to ship in July 2011

 TOYS Black Rock Shooter Strength Animation Version - Preorder

From the Manufacturer:
The silent Strength, hidden by a veil of darkness
   From the Black Rock Shooter anime comes a 1/8th scale figure of Strength - the mysterious girl who watched over one of Black Rock Shooter's battles from the shadows. She has been sculpted with her giant Orge Arms equipped, which create a wonderful contrast when compared to her petite ladylike build. The stand follows on from the rest of the series and boasts an impressive size, with a design that brings out the atmosphere of the Black Rock Shooter universe.
   You didn't get to see much of her in the movie - but you can enjoy her anytime you like once you've grabbed the figure! Preorders are welcome to ship in December 2011.
