 TOYS Queen's Blade Echidna Tokiranbu Original - Import Preorder

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» In Queen's Blade, Echidna is a pouty-mouthed warrior maiden who possesses pendulous bosoms. She's normally refined and highly dignified in her appearance - guess you could say that she bears the composure of someone regal.

   In the upcoming Queen's Blade Echidna Tokiranbu Original polystone figure from Q-Six, Echidna's not so regal anymore. She's not composed either but rather bawdy. Stripper bawdy. Echidna stands with her haunches apart, her chest pushed forward, and wears a "come hither" look on her face. She bears the look and demeanor of a stripper. The figure is sculpted to 1/6 scale by Takayuki Shirahige and measures 21cm or 8.26" tall. Preorders are welcome to ship in late Sept 2011.

 TOYS Queen's Blade Nanael - 1st Attack - Preorder

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Nanael is a blue-haired woman warrior who appears angelic (despite the lack of a halo) because she sports a healthy pair of feathery wings. The other thing that makes Nanael less than angelic is the cutter that she carries in her right hand which appears ready to strike a vagabond dead with one stroke.

   The Queen's Blade Nanael 1st Attack figure is sculpted to 1/6 scale by ELLIOTT and measures 30cm or 11.70" tall. The figure is fixed-pose, pre-painted, and ready for display. Preorders are welcome to ship in September 2011 at JPY14800 or US$199.90 from NCS. Due to the size of this figure, NCS recommends shipping by UPS Ground within the continental United States.

 TOYS Rockman Zero 1/10 Scale Model Kit - Import Preorder

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Back in April 2002, Capcom paved the way for a new type of Rockman game series - Rockman Zero. Instead of the blue-armored and cherubic-faced warrior of yore, Rockman Zero was edgy, moody, and had a crimson and dark blue color scheme with yellow bracers that was exciting. The Rockman Zero series went on to spawn a number of sequels and adjuncts which took the portable gaming market by storm.

   Kotobukiya is releasing a Rockman Zero kit for toy fans to build which is designed by Jun Sato. Once the figure is assembled, Zero measures 16cm tall and t's limbs may be positioned and postured for action stances. Weapons included in the kit includes the Z-Saber and the Z-Blaster which may be gripped in Zero's hand. Preorders are welcome to ship in October 2011 at JPY3200 or US$43.90 from NCS.

 TOYS DC Bishoujo Collection: Batgirl Black Costume - Preorder

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Batman watches over Gotham City like a silent protector because he's vigilant and altruistic like that. He's the Dark Knight, you know and the mean streets know his name as well as his shining beacon. Unbeknownst to the rabble however, there is another who skulks in the night and fights the minions of the criminal underworld. Commissioner Gordon's daughter is a crime fighter too - she's Batgirl and she looks sort of like Batman except she's a... girl.

   Kotobukiya's Batgirl Black Costume figure features the sleek-suited heroine in a dominant posture. Her left leg is hefted on top of a golden gargoyle which is how conquerors tend to stand and her right arm makes a sweeping motion. It's like she's saying to herself, "All that I behold in Gotham City is mine." To accentuate Batgirl's dominant stance, her black cape is swishy and billows like royal robes.

   The Batgirl figure measures 23cm tall and is based on an illustration by Shunya Yamashita. The toy sports a shiny patina all over which is sure to catch the eye of onlookers. Preorders are welcome to ship in October 2011 at JPY6200 or US$89.90 from NCS.
