 SALE Kenka Banchou PlayStation 2 the Best [In Stock, PS2-JPN] US$68.90

 NCS Product Synopsis

 Original Update: December 02, 2005
 School toughs strut, swagger, and punch... in that order, in Spike's cel-shaded 3-D action game where Japanese wannabe gangsters engage in a street spanning school vs school war. A big pompadour bolstered by copious amounts of hairspray and pomade gives the aspiring gang leader Yasuo a distinctive Arthur "Sit On It" Fonzarelli-esque profile. As the story goes, a new and powerful gang has begun to assert its power amongst the high schools in the area by way of brute force. Yasuo challenges the gang with a medley of over 100 attacks and special moves that range from punches, kicks, and even swinging hoods by their heels.
    The action runs smooth with beautifully animated squabbles that would almost be comical were it not for the game's already self-effacing demeanor that pokes at itself throughout the entire game. Every gangster shuffles down the street with a laid back manner that is amazing to witness. No one that is gainfully employed walks like that... The gangsters also dress up like Neo from the Matrix in yankii revival garb, except none of them have the skills that Neo possesses. Kids cower in the presence of higher level gang members while adults generally mind their own business and keep their chins up. As Yasuo increases the level of respect that he deserves, rival gangsters of lower stature will vamoose when they spot him moseying down the street.
    When fighting, an opponent may be knocked down to the ground and then continually kicked as he/she bounces around like a wooden husk. When it's time to flee instead of fight, Yasuo rushes forward, head down and arms slung behind him for optimal acceleration. If a thug gets too close, the hero may perform a backward kick to slow down the pursuer. Policemen roam the streets and will arrest any street fighters that they see. If arrested, Yasuo's street cred drops and he will have to rebuild his reputation.

 TOYS Megami Device Collaboration Busou Shinki Type Devil Strarf [Preorder] US$78.98

 Product Synopsis

Update November 05, 2023

   This is the third collaboration between Busou Shinki and Megami Device!

   The second character from Busou Shinki, TYPE DEVIL STRARF, will be released as a plastic model kit in Kotobukiya’s Megami Device style!

   This kit is based on the jet black, mechanical devil design by Humikane Shimada using current plastic model standards, all while paying maximum respect to previous models. The coloring and joint details have all been taken into consideration to produce an easy-to-assemble design that truly shows off the evolution of model kits.
   The “machinika” body, updated from MMS by Masaki Apsy himself, is a must-see. This model strikes an excellent balance with the existing Megami Device series by incorporating essential elements to recreate certain postures, such as a hip joint structure that allows the figure to sit while hugging her knees.

   As a bonus for long-time fans to enjoy, expansion joints with a diameter of 3.3mm are included, allowing for the use of parts from older items.

   (This may require some adjustment for certain Busou Shinki models. These parts should be adjusted by the user.)
Included Items & Features:
- As the parts configuration and joint features of this product are based on Megami Device specifications, many parts are interchangeable with those of existing Megami Device models.
- The body of this product is specifically designed to recreate the articulation of the previous MMS body, such as the hip joint that can be pulled out and uniaxial knee joints.
- Three pre-painted face parts designed by Amaai are included.
- The model can be constructed with her signature gear in “Armed Mode,” or without gear in “Unarmed Mode.”
- The kit includes exoskeleton armor, knives, a grenade launcher, a handgun and more in addition to a variety of gear, allowing users to recreate different combat scenes.
- Using the 3mm connection points on each part and the compatibility of the head, this model can be customized with existing M.S.G, Frame Arms, Frame Arms Girl, Hexa Gear, Sousai Shojo Teien, and Arcanadea series parts.
- This kit includes decals for the eyes and other markings.
- This model includes the removable “CSC” chest armor.
- Bonus joints that can be used with older models are included (these parts should be adjusted by the user.

   Preorders are welcome to ship in late April 2024. This item is an officially licensed model kit set.
