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.

Mushrooms are cute and round, perfect for holding on to, or thrown around during pillow fights. At 22 cm, these work well as projectile weapons and cushions for your back. The cheerful and bright character is a comfort to hold and will light up your whole room.

Place him in the office or on your couch as a cushion, rest your back on it or cuddle it when you watch your collection of block busters. The Mushroom plush is available for the unbeatable bargain price of US$ 12.90 only and maximum amount of purchase is set to 1 piece per person.



Let's start with the preorders today, we have added a number of must-have collectibles into our database. First, take a look at our super star - Hatsune Miku.

Under the hands of the famous illustrator Nagimiso, the virtual idol Hatsune Miku portrays a new maturity that fits her image in the VN02mix of her original song Moon. Combining forces with the illustrator, Max Factory brought the virtual idol alive once again, through delicate workmanship and attention to the smallest details.

Miku is leaping off into the air, her neon green hair flows around her and the mechanical wings ready to spread. Her outfit contains a lot more tiny decorative parts and her body shape is more voluptuous than all her previous figures. This mixture of boldness and delicateness is the very essence of Nagimiso's Miku, the very reason you need her in your display case.

Miku will fly over in June 2010.
