Weekly Toys Update: It's all about being tough this week - we have fighters - Chun Li, Kiryu Kazuma, super weapon Master Chief, vintage space ships, Yamashita's model displaying guerilla wear & 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.

As she is the first female fighter in single player combat games, everyone is familiar with Chun Li the Interpol officer who strives to avenge her father and bring down evil in the process.

The muscles crafted to her body suggest the strenuous martial arts training she recieves and that she is not a person to cross.

Chun Li is sold at a bargain price of US$ 12.90. The maximum purchase is limited to 2 pieces per customer. As usually, this weekly special is valid for exactly 1 week (if not sold out earlier).

Kiryu Kazuma, the ex-boss of Tojo-kai, the true dragon of Japan as well as the legendary Yakuza hero is made into a figure. With his eyes sharp and muscles taut, he is ready to show all the roughmen within the vicinity who's the boss.

A yakuza's identity is proven not only by his leadership skills or his prowess as a fighter but also by the tattoo he wears on his back. The vivid and colorful rising dragon on Kiryu's back gives him both his nickname and symbolizes his heroism.

To emphasize his status, this figure of him comes with his weapons, a Japanese sword and a baseball bat as well as a special stand that lights up with a press of a switch that lends much drama to this hero.



The main playable character and super weapon Master Chief from Halo is brought from the television screen to the 3D world by Kotobukiya.

He is depicted as crouching within the semi-opaque bubble shield in a battle pose. Fans looking forward to seeing his weapons and thrilling action will be pleased, for this package comes with his assault rifle and two machine guns held at the ready for firing.



Space ships from vintage arcade shooting games such as R-Type and Gradius are released as trading toys, now you can land them beside your collection of planes or the figures of your favorite pilots on your desk or shelf.

Although these are miniature versions of the planes in the games, they are loyally modelled, sculpted and colored with attention paid to the last detail.

This series will include two repainted versions of the vessels as well as a secret version, so be sure to watch out for those as you complete your collection.



Girls who models military wear and weapons are hot, just like the nameless model featuring in the pin-up poster in the military magazine MC Akushizu. Drawn by the famous game character designer and illustrator Yamashita Shunya, this girl has a body shape that shames even super models.

The rifle she is holding is modelled after the M2 12.7mm automatic machine gun with barrels and screws in all the right places and is just as flawlessly proportioned as the girl.

The lists below show what has been released this week and what is available for preordering.
