Weekly Toys Update: Get your pilot license - buy a fighter jet Vic Viper, hire ninjas like Sennin Haruka and Suzume, meet the children pirates Zoros, Nami, Nojiko, decorate your home with Mario plushes & 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.

Vic Viper the sleek fighter jet has starred in the numerous Gradius games and has made guest appearances in the hit anime Sky Girls. In 2084, the hope of the mankind lies on a new fighter, a secret military development. Vic Viper is equipped with laser-plasma guns and the fastest engine ever used in a space fighter.

This 1/60 scale model-kit is based on illustrations by Akitaka Mika, well-known for his skilled work in many series and games such as Gundam and Galaxy Fraulein Yuna.

With several option parts this model is a true collector's item and must have for all Gradius and Skygirl fans. This stylish, state of the art fighter plane is now sold at a bargain price of US$ 19.90 each and the maximum purchase is limited to 1 piece per customer. As usually, this weekly special is valid for exactly 1 week (if not sold out earlier).



Employ a ninja as your body guard, Sennin Haruka has not only time skipped from the past to the present, but leapt from the PC screen to the real world. As a ninja, she is ready to fight for you, the craftsman of Kotobukiya incorporated an element of movement into her pose, giving her an image of speed and flexibility.

Playinig along with the ninja idea, this figure of her comes with a special base shaped like a shuriken. She is now riding on her flying weapon, so be ready to recieve her.



Another ninja whose services we recommend is Suzume from Sengoku Lance. Unlike Haruka, she is an assasin and not a body guard. Rather than using physical weapons like shuriken or swords, her most lethal weapon is her innocent charm, it does not only disarm you, but you realized you cannot resist her.

Suzume's sculptor brings out her charm through modelling her hair and outfit loyally after her image in the game. Every bell on her kimono and gloves shines with a metalic light as her hair and the tails of the bow on her obi are lifted as if a breeze is really flowing around her.



ArtStorm's Lilics series is a collection of beauties, they may come from popular series like Chii from Clamp's Chobits, or famous illustrators' original artwork. Talking about famous illustrators, Yamashita Shunya is definitely one of them.

He has specifically designed Kanaru, a beauty from a futuristic world for the Lilic series. Kanaru is filled to the brim with Yamashita Shunya's individual style. Her outfit is desgned to suit an SF motif while her face portrays an open, friendly expression. Let her be your guide to both Yamashita Shunya's world and the Lilics series.



Some people have decided their occupation since they were children when others became what they are due to some great changes. Zoros the swordsman of the Makuwara group certainly belongs to the first category while Nami and her sister Nojiko belongs to the seond.

The CB series that branches out from the original POP series depicts the childhood image of One Piece characters. Although child Zoros looks largely the same as his adult form, his openly enthusiastic expression is still a refreshing change from his usual poker face.

Although Nami and Nojiko belongs to another category, the open expressions they wear are similar to Zoros'. The second volume of the CB series is now available for preorders while the figures: Luffy, Sanji and Robin are in stock. Begin your collection with the first series as you wait for the figures from the second.



Some exciting and popular products are arriving tomorrow and we simply can't wait to show you. The four Mario plushes featured as preorders in the Toys Update several months ago and a series of World of Warcraft figures will be joining us in our warehouse temporarily before they will, hopefully, join your collection at home.

In Mario Galaxy, with the power of the stars, Mario has transformed himself into several shapes to face different opponents. These forms are Super Mario, Fire Mario, Mario Bee and Obake (ghost) Mario. Although they are formidable in the game, as plushes they are perfectly friendly.


The soft toys are suitable companions for everyone. They soften the home and the office, and one of them is bound to go well with the color scheme of your furnishings, bringing a flash of trendiness and individuality to your personal space.



As opposed to Mario which makes use of more colorful and rounded images, World of Warcraft is darker with a stronger emphasis on realism. Figures from the second World of Warcraft series will arrive tomorrow with the Mario plushes.

This series features members from both the Alliance and the Horde, the large spectrum of races and jobs is a main attraction of the game and the sculptors of DC Comics have carefully crafted them down to the most minute details in their most representative battle poses.

The races featured in this series are: Dranei, Human, Troll, Gnome and Elf.


To promote their newest expansion package The Burning Crusade, Sideshow Collectibles and Blizzard is starting the diorama series. This very limited statue series is based on artwork that was released as a teaser to the game's expansion pack and this first figure features the ferocious battle between a Blood Elf Rogue and a Draenei Paladin.

Draneis and the blood elves are new races that only appears in The Burning Crusade, and as mentioned above, this 3D battle scene is a very limited release. Each of these statues are hand crafted and painted to the highest quality, and to show their exalted status, they bear an individual hand painted edition number at their bases.

Be a true connoiseur and start you diorama collection with this first Diorama statue.

Aside from the World of WarCraft statues, Blanka from Street Fighter is also coming on the same shipment tomorrow, so keep an eye out for him as well.
