Weekly Toys Update: Maid Fetish: Nadeshiko, Aris, all things grand - Final Fantasy, Valkyrie Profile Lenneth Statues, Rosenthal, pirate kids - Zoro, Nami, Nojiko & much 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.

Nadeshiko is the name of a flower and a title for a Japanese woman who embodies all feminine virtues. This name is particularly suitable for our pink haired Inukami. Pacifist and gentle in nature, she cares deeply for all living things and is endlessly devoted to her contractor.

You have caught her unaware in this moment, she barely managed to snatch her maid's apron to cover herself. But fear not, although very powerful, there is no malice or anger on her finely sculpted features.

Feed off your moe appetite with the gentlest Inukami. Our cover girl, Nadeshiko is available at a bargain price of US$ 17.90 only.

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).



The kid pirates have arrived, get ready to take them in. The serous demeanor is the result of Zoro's years of training as we can see clearly that he is as fond of pulling funny faces as all other crew members. Holding his bamboo swords in both of his hands, Zoro is determined to become the next Miyamoto Musashi.

Zoro's figure affords a limited amount of movement, as you can see from the pictures, his right arm can move up and down to wield the swords.


Nami and Nojiko are a large part of each other's lives, especially when the navigator of the Makuwara crew was still a child, therefore it is simply impossible to separate the two of them.

The girls have spent a reasonably happy childhood together in each other and their foster mother's company until the tragedy strikes. The guileless smile have been lost to Nami for years until her full participation into the Makuwara Pirates team.

Like Zoro, Nami's expression changes if you replace her face part with another one. While Zoro scowls, Nami widens her large generous grin.

The one who has supported Nami until she met her new found friends is her elder sister Nojiko, who understood everything and accepted her sister's decisions silently. But being a loving sister is not all to Nojiko, she has to discipline and hold the unruly Nami in line.

With both hands on her hips, Nojiko is in full sisterly glory. Her package comes with an extra right arm so you can change her posture to a more relaxed one. Switch her expression to a satisfied smile by exchanging the current face part to another one.


Zoro, Nami and Nojiko have sailed into our warehouse, the three kids are available for the same price of US$ 24.90 each only.



One wrong turn, these long time partners would tumble down to the their respective dooms. Balthier and Fran have gone through all sorts of hardship with their wit and combat prowesses and the statue captures all of these in this momenteous scene.

To portray their daring spirit, the sculptors of Kotobukiya took this one dramatic moment in the game and freeze it for all the fans to admire and collectors to drool for.

The falling rubble and the partners on the air bike are precariously suspended in mid air. Every minute detail of this polystone statue is sculpted to perfection, from the smallest carving on the arch to the direction in which the building crumbles.


The grandness did not stop here, however, for two more statues from Square Enix's hit games series came out today. They are the Judge Magister Gabranth from Final Fantasy XII and Lenneth Valkyrie from Valkyrie Profile.

From the same Master Arts Statue series as the Balthier and Fran one above, Judge Magister Gabranth is an imposing sight to behold, standing at half a meter tall, he is a knight who commands respect and reverence for his battle prowess and the strict adherence to the code of knighthood.

The largeness of the statue provide more creative ground for the sculptors of Square Enix to show off their talents on. Every bit of the knight, from the golden carvings on his gauntlets to the embroidery on his mantle are brought to life in this statue.

To top everything off and prove his superior standing amongst collectible statues, his armor is painted and polished such that it shines in a metalic light.


The silver haired war goddess Lenneth is in full regalia in this scene where the King of the Norse gods Odin bequethed the valkyrie her armor.

Unlike the crumbling structure in Fran and Balthier's statue, the church-like building is not only upright, but adds an air of holiness to the winged being.

Lenneth is lifted to the air by both her wings and the shafts of light that embodies the grace of Odin, the golden aurora forms a shining contrast with the darkness of the structure and the paleness of the valkyrie sets off the whole scene with an ethereal glow.


These breathtaking structures are in stock today and are available for these prices:

Final Fantasy XII 1/4 Scale Master Piece Art Statue: Judge Magister GabranthJPN N/A sold
Final Fantasy XII Sculpture Arts Pre-Painted PVC Statue: Balthier & FranJPN N/A sold
Valkyrie Profile Sculpture Arts: Lenneth ValkyrieJPN N/A sold



To start playing, you need to download the software from its official website by entering the serial number, install it into your computer and register your cube. Place the block down with its blank side facing the table, switch on your webcam (make sure there is nothing between the block and your webcam) and you have Aris at your service.

With the square side (yubi or finger side) of the cyber stick facing the camera, you can touch her and see all of her reactions. Turn the stick around and undress her with the heart side (te no hira or hand side).

Change her clothes, give her presents or freeze her movements by putting the respective cards in front of the camera. Use the finger side to browse the outfits, the presents you want to give her, or stop her movements, and use the hand side to make your selection.

Like a normal person, treat her nicely, play with her often, and she would reward you with her endless devotion and loyalty.

Sign the contract and employ Aris for US$ 124.90 and you will have the computer maid's lifetime devotion.




Assemble your own armor. The hit PS3 Xbox360 game is pushing mecha frenzy to new heights with their massive and highly detailed robots. The complicated design that includes all the minute surfaces, blades, rifles and missiles can be put together by following their manual.

Perhaps not large enough for you to pilot, but Rosenthal is still carefully crafted with mulitple points of articulation. The developers of Kotobukiya have designed it to balance on its feet even when you twist into all sorts of battle poses.

Add Rosethal to your prized collection and show that you are a wonderful modeller for US$ 54.90 only.




Long awaited and highly anticipated Castlevania 7" action figures have arrived late last week, catch a glimpse of the artistry that went into them via our special news and bring them home via our website.




Strike Witches has a set of characters which are particularly suitable for turning into nendoroid figures as it mixes sci-fi and cute elements together in such angelic proportions.

Like all Nendoroid figures, you can change her expression and outfit by exchanging parts from the pack.

Hard metallic rounded off with soft nendoroid cuteness, this is a figure that collectors simply cannot miss.

Miyafuji Yoshika is flying to us and is expected to arrive in January next year, reserve a space for her on your Nendoroid showcase and preorder her for US$ 41.90 only.



Yoko turns herself into a teacher in the memorable 21st episode of Gurren Lagann. And this wonderful scene is brought forth by Numakura Toshiaki. Yoko has been voluptuous even when she was merely a teenager, the grown up Yoko, or Yomako sensei, needless to say, is just as sensuous.

Dressed in a more conservative manner, fitting her role as a teacher, Yoko is still not afraid to show off her curves to the world, instead of hiding her, the dress simply shows off her figure in a more subtle way.

The glasses in her dainty fingers are made from clear plastic while the pointer in her hands can be replaced with a piece of pink chalk.

Yoko has grown up into Yomako Sensei and is ready to give you some lessons in February next year. Book into her courses via our preorder system for US$ 69.90 only.
