Weekly Toy's Update: Follow the owl - Mabinogi Nao, to greek - Kratos, a fashion show - Rei, Aya, Seena, Shana hi-tech war scenes - EVA mechs, Kusanagi Motoko, Haruhi's concert & more!


Welcome to this week's toys update. Check out the wonderful collectibles we just got in stock and all the new products made available for preorder.

As toys, especially collectible ones, are produced in limited numbers and are often sold out prior to the actual release date, we strongly recommend to preorder the figures of your desire as early as possible.

From the highly popular net game Mabinogi, Nao, your guide is going to take you through this week's voluminous features. Since there are so much interesting releases this week, having a guide is a handy thing, moreover, a cute guide like Nao.

Nao comes with two dresses, the black one as seen in the picture and a white one that sets off the snowy tone of her complexion. The cover girl of this week's Toy's Update, Nao is sold at a bargain price of US$ 49.90 only and the maximum amount of purchase is set to 2 pieces per customer.


As usually, this weekly special is valid for exactly 1 week (if not sold out earlier).

Now follow the owl onto the rest of the news.



Inspired heavily by Greek tragedies and mythology, Kratos is a star example of a vengeful hero. To revenge for his fallen family, he conveniently accepts the request from Athena to destroy the former God of War, Ares. Upon slaying the god, however, he became the new god.

Created just as carefully and seamlessly as the game are the figures of Kratos. By using a killer power up, Kratos turned into his Poseidon's Rage form. Created almost entirely in a semi-opaque aqua material, Kratos Poseidon's Rage Form is the very image of the angry sea god.

While the Poseidon styled figure emits a blue glow, the Dark Odyssey form portrays a lethal grace. By unlocking the costume, Kratos gets more power than ever. With multiple points of articulation and his twin blades in his hands, Kratos is ready to wreak havoc to any realm that stands in his path of vengeance.

The action figures of Krato's Poseidon form and Dark Odyssey form from God of War II, are selling for the same price of US$ 16.90 only.



Although never really the best of friends in the series, Asuka and Rei often come in pairs as they are the two main attractions of Evangelion. So how can there be a gothic lolita version of Asuka with out one of Rei?

Rei suits the gothic theme perfectly with her pale colorings and taciturn character, as a good companion figure with Asuka, the base the blue haired beauty sits on is of the same tone as the red head's.

Discover the darkly trendy side of Rei with her gothic lolita version. The figure is currently in stock and is available for US$ 79.90 only.



Beside the pilots, Evangelion prototypes are very much in the center spotlight. It amazed audiences, mecha fans and figure collectors with their sleek lines and shapes when they came out in mid 90s, completely different from the classic Sunrise mecha designs such as Gundams.

The figure set comes with Shinji's Test Type 01, Rei's Prototype 00 and a twin weapon pack containing Rei's shield and Shinji's rifle.

Do not mistake this action figure set with the previous one we have sold as our weekly special, as this one features figures that are much larger, standing at 17 cm tall, they can be used to recreate a more impressive battle scene. This action figure set is currently available for US$ 27.90 only.




Aya, the bikini-wearing, zombie slashing swordswoman is here to save the day. Along with the previews of the newest One-chanbara game on Nintendo Wii, the popularity of the zombie slayer reaches new heights.

Raising her sword in one hand, and taunting her enemies with another, she is the perfect example of deadly elegance. Every part of the figure is constructed to proportion and under such a bold outfit, Aya shames all super models with her perfection.

Strode elegantly into our warehouse, the newest figure of Aya is in stock, priced at US$ 89.90 only.




The female cyborg warrior Kusanagi Motoko of Ghost in the Shell is a high quality product both in the anime world and in the real world. Modelled loyally after her original form in the anime by Sawada Keisuke and Akimoto Mieko, her suit is made with the same material as designed for her by her original creator.

Besides the suit, every part of her is carefully crafted to bring out her form in the most realistic sense. Her bust part is specially designed for her to display her proportions and with her different hand parts she can take hold of the variety of weapons provided in the package so that you can recreate all the adrenaline pumping battle scenes.

Kusanagi Motoko is presently residing in our warehouse, waiting for you to set her missions. Take her home for US$ 159.90 only.



Shana, or the Flame Haze, is the person who maintains balance in the world by killing monsters who preys on humans with her sword. Sculpted by Minheru, the figure portrays the girlish cuteness of Shana, placing special emphasis to the flaming red hair and intense crimson eyes that named her in the first place.

By using multicolored, semi-opaque plastic, the flaming hot aspect of the girl swordsman is brought forth. Simply shine a light on her and she would glow like a fire. A flame from hell, perhaps, but still a flame, let this gradually humanized girl warm you this winter.

Shana, red haired version is glowing in our warehouse, take the little fireball home for US$ 74.90 only.




To follow Yuji, the lucky guy who escaped absolute death and countless monsters, Shana has to masquerade as a normal Japanese girl, that is, going to school in a sailor uniform and spotting a head of black hair.

We can see the successes Yuji met with humanizing the girl for she no longer spots a completely blank face but a happy smile. As a figma figure, the school girl form of Shana features multiple points of articulation, and in this outfit, you can recreate any school scene with her.

Shana (school girl form) is preparing herself to come here and is expected to be able to arrive in March next year. Currently available as a preorder, she is priced at US$ 39.90 only.



Shining Wind, from Sega's 2D tactical RPG Shining series, is called a game that reaches into the depth of your heart. The impressive storyline certainly is memorable, but the true attraction, at least to figure collectors and creators, is the amount of attractive player characters.

After the priestess Kureha and the princess knight Clalaclan, we have the hot tempered, passionate Seena. Created loyally after the illustrations by the character designer Tony, its sculptor portrays Seena's sunny disposition through her happy smile and her sensuality through her seductive posture.

Seena will be available to accompany you on your journey next year in February. Her figure is currently available as a preorder for US$ 84.90 only.



Haruhi is the very image of eternal summer, always full of ideas and energy. Taller than most figures, standing at 24 cm tall, she is an imposing force to be reckoned with.

Every strand of hair and the ends of her ribbons are carefully crafted so that they appear to be tossing about in the breeze. Get ready to listen and obey her demands before she encloses you in a certain space and remove you from existence.

One of the most memorable scenes where Haruhi displays her more earthly talents is the open day episode where she performs with the rock band on stage. Like all tasks she has set out to do, the girl does it with an air of confidence that dazzles all.

Created to the same scale as the one above, Haruhi now demands you to give her your full attention on her concert. Both figures, standing versions and guitar playing versions are available in March next year and are currently on preorder for the same price of US$ 17.90 only.
