Weekly Toy's Update: Size doesn't matter - Gnome Warrior, luck is the most powerful thing - Steel Spartan, fall for the dark side - Metis, shine brilliantly - Thousand Sunny T-Shirts, trade a figure for a soul - Soul Eater figures & much 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.

The special product of the week is a Gnome Warrior. Standing at approximately 21 cm, the figure is installed with multiple points of articulation such that you can reproduce any battle scene with it. It is detailly crafted, complete with his weapons and ride.

As a warrior class, this gnome is built to survive heavy blows. The surface of his steed and armour shines with a metalic gleam and although tiny, the gnome is a force to behold. The figure of the warrior is sold at a bargain price of US$ 14.90 per person and the maximum number of purchase is set to 2 pieces per person.

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



The mere mention of this soldier's name would make your enemies tremble in fright, for he is the strongest and most fearsome in world history. John 117, the protagonist from the Halo series is the luckiest unfortunate person. Kidnapped from home, his was biologically augmentated and was sent to fight wars across the galaxy.

The figure of Steel Spartan, which portrays one of John 117's many military get-ups is a very limited product, only 2000 pieces are released worldwide. The scene that this figure captures shows the soldier fighting in the heat of war. He has erected a transparent shield and thrown a grenade on the base.

Employ the luckiest soldier to fight your wars for US$ 99.90 now.




Metis, the darkside born from Aigis deepest fears and desires stands alone as an addition to your prized figure collection and forms a perfect pair with her pale sister, Aigis. At first, she appears as an enemy but once her agenda is understood, she joins your side as a trusty ally.

One of the new characters in Persona 3 FES, Metis is critical to your understanding of the whole Persona 3 story. Avoid suffering the tragic fate that afflicted the main character in the original game by befriending the android because bonds between comrades are the key to salvation.

Metis has arrived, take her home for US$ 74.90 only.




Profess your undying support for the One Piece cast and Makuwara Pirates, in particular, to the rest of the world by parading around in the Thousand Sunny T-Shirt. After the destruction of the Going Merry, the Lion on the Thousand Sunny became a new logo for the crew.

Made with quality material, the garment is suitable as both home wear and as casual street clothes. The T-Shirts come in two colors, Blue and Black. Both colors compliment with the brightness of the lion's mane and the Thousand Sunny shines brilliantly on both garments.

Please bear in mind that the T-shirts only come in size S and are uni-sex. Both blue and black shirts are sold at the same price of US$ 29.90 only.



Kaiyodo's Street Fighter Online collection presents you with the special investigator Chunli, a girl who joined ICPO in search of her missing father. Like most figures and portraits of her, she is dressed in her Chinese styled fighting attire and her hair tied up in two buns.

Quite a lot of characters in this collection are inspired by Chinese martial arts novels authored by Kinyou and since the idea of Ki is vital in such stories, the figure of Chunli comes with a materialized ball of ki made of semi-paque blue plastic that goes well with her clothes.

Released along with Chunli is Hiko, an axe wielder molded after one of Kinyou's heroes. To allow him a flexibility of movement and a display of gravity defying arts, the figure is supported by a beam attached to his back so that he can perform a leap or a fly kick.

Like all figures in this series, Chunli and Hiko can be dissembled, their limbs mixed and matched together with other figures from the series to form a character of your own. The two of them from Revoltech Street Fighter Online series are coming in November, preorder them for the same price of US$ 29.99 only.



The second volume of Squre Enix's Soul Eater Trading Arts series features characters in their fighting poses. Although the meisters are still close to their weapons, due to their battle modes, the weapons are reverted to their lethal form instead of human.

This volume spots Maka with Soul Eater in her hands, Kid with his twin guns Liz and Patty, Black Star with Tsubaki in weapon form, Tsubaki in human form, Blair the demon cat and Dr. Franken Stein with Death Scythe in his hands.

Arriving in December, these toys are perfect Christmas presents for fans of this pop in cool series. Preorder figures of Soul Eater Trading Arts vol.2 for US$ 7.90 only.
