 TOYS Portrait of Pirates CB-EX Luffy & Ace - Import Preorder

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Megahouse originally released the Portraits of Pirates CB-EX Luffy & Ace Brotherly Bonds figure set on January 30, 2011 and sold out shortly afterwards. To meet continuing demand for the set, the company has announced a new production of the figures which ships in October 2011.
   Luffy measures approximately 13cm tall while Ace is slightly taller at 15cm. The two "siblings" sport broad toothy smiles to express something stronger than happiness. That kind of smile moves beyond normal happiness into the realm of ecstatic and perhaps maniacal joy. If you could bottle that kind of joy and sell it at Walmart, you'd be richer than the Waltons.
   Extra parts that are packaged with the figures include one extra face for each character - Luffy retains his broad smile in his alternate face whilst Ace becomes dour and peeved in his alternate countenance, extra arms, a bottle of refreshment, cups, and a straw hat.
   Preorders for the reproduction of the Luffy & Ace set are welcome to ship in late October 2011 at JPY or US$59.90 from NCS.
