Weekly Toys Update: All out battles - Nono Buster 7 Queen of Monsters, R/C Toys - Program A Bot, air drum sticks, submarines, UFOs, Hoshimura Makina, Suzumiya Haruhi, Yoko & 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.

Nono, the ultimate weapon to save human from alien invasion is here, in her 7th Buster form. Although she appeared initially as a ditzy girl, she is designed and created as a cyborg and weapon as human's last ditch against hostile forces.

In her queen of the monsters form, Nono showed determination in her eyes without an ounce of her usual clumsiness. Her hair which was originally pink now shined a fiery glow and the missiles that lined her legs are ready to fire.

Nono of Gunbuster 2 shows us her true form this week. Her figure, our weekly special, is available at an unbeatable bargain price of US$ 12.90 only. The maximum amount of purchase is set to 3 pieces per customer, be sure to buy one for your friends to protect their homes.



Although not poweful enough fight battles or fire a missile for you, the Program A Bot is perfect as a toy or playing companion. Try out your robot programming skills by entering commands to make it do things. With an object detection system, it won't run into obstacles as it roams your house. Besides that, it can pick up simple objects, run around, lift its arms and turn its head.

Is your room too small for a drum set? This is the answer to your percussionist dreams. With this set of drum sticks and R/C gadget, not only do you own your drum set, but you can play it on the go.

Wear the ear plugs and get ahold of your sticks and beat the air with it in tune of the music. The gadget can detect your rhythm, so jam your songs on the go.

Control your submarine, explore and make war with your friends in a water tank or a bath tub. The tiny submarine could emerge and submerge in the water, move in all sorts of direction. With the headlights, it could sink into murky water and continue its exploration into your enemy's bases.

Amuse and amaze your friends during meetings or parties with a tiny UFO from Jupiter. Launch it with a gun and spin it around the room. With its red and blue led lights, the tiny air craft can appear to be sending signals back home.

It's perfectly easy to control. Cause a small stir amongst family and friends with this toy for a laugh.

Hoshimura Makina is perhaps one of the most volatile and versatile corpses in the world. Charged to kill another 108 living corpses, Makina picked up fire arms and is off to do war with the living dead.

Her figma set comes with an array of machine gun and other gadgets, so she would always be prepared for battle. With a series of different hands and face parts, you can recreate all sorts of action scenes from the anime.

Haruhi, too, is ready for more action. April is the start of the school year in Japan and Haruhi is all set for it. Dressed in her summer uniform, she comes will all sorts of knick-knacks to help her enlarge her SOS club.

As the leader of the club, she brought her digital camera and arm band. Since she discovered Kyon's fondness for girls with pony tails, she decides to wear one occasionally to amuse him. To be loyal to her actions in the anime, this set comes with a pony tail hair part.

Both Makina and Haruhi spot the newest joints designed for the figma series, and the soft material which their garments are made of allows them flexible movements so Makina can fight while Haruhi dances.

Scheduled to come in April, the figures are available as preorders for:

Yoko has just emerged victorious after a deadly battle. Although she was worn out and her outfit damaged, she still showed her happy smile which gives people a sense of hope.

The figure comes with a wink expression part which portrays her unwittingly flirtatious charm while the knot she tied across her chest with her bikini top is a hint of the danger she has gone through. Although facing critical situations constantly, she is never afraid for her partner Buta is always with her.

Add this gently smiling Yoko to your Guren Lagaan collection and let her fuel you with a sense of hope whenver you look at her.

Another version of Yoko boarded the Fraulein Revoltech band wagon. This action figure of hers give you a rare view of the beauty with her hair down. Perhaps she is caught off guard, that is why she looked so cross as she points a gun at you.

But since it is not within a battle, you can reason with her. Just take her home, offer her a nice, clean place on your shelf and calm her down.

The Fraulein Revoltech version of Yoko is coming in May while her after-battle version comes in June. Pre-order them now to ensure that you get them when they arrives.
