 TOYS Odin Sphere: SIF EX Gwendolyn PVC Figure - Import Preorder

NCS Product Synopsis
   In the Odin Sphere game for the Playstation 2, a white-haired Valkyrie named Gwendolyn kicks off the adventure where she wields a weapon known as the Psypher Spear to battle foes. Gwendolyn is the daughter of Odin and since she's a Valkyrie, she's versatile in her battlefield maneuvers and can perform a swooping dive move where she glides across the screen with predator-like grace. From the air, Gwendolyn strikes downwards with her spear to put the fear of Odin in hapless foes and woodland animals alike.

   Despite Odin Sphere being released back in 2007, Yamato pays homage to Gwendolyn with a non-scale PVC figure sculpted by Yasuhiro Uchijima which measures 25cm or 9.84" tall. Gwendolyn stands in repose while holding her Psypher Spear with both hands. A blue saucer serves as the display base which is fitted with a fallen log upon which a bluebird perches. Preorders are welcome to ship in October 2011. 

 TOYS Brandish Ziska Miwaku no Haku Akuma Figure - Preorder

NCS Product Synopsis
Orchid Seed originally released the Brandish Ziska figure in regulation colors back in March of this year and the toy sold out to eager fans. Ziska's pose mimics strippers and perhaps adult performers where her limber right leg points towards the heavens while her left leg is bent beneath her. If she was in a strip club, Ziska would have earned at least $300 within 5 minutes of achieving that pose. That's what we've heard.

   The original Brandish Ziska figure is sold out and gone but latecomers to the party can always opt for the upcoming "Akuma" rendition of the figure which dresses the succubus in which stockings, white gloves, and a white bodice that's too flimsy to do what it's supposed to do - give Ziska some semblance of modesty. Preorders for the 1/7 scale Brandish Ziska "Akuma" figure are welcome to ship in late November 2011 at JPY8256 or US$123.90 from NCS.

 ETC Labyrinth Aquarium
