Weekly Toys Update: Onechan is here to the rescue: Hagii Shunya's Aya, Kingdom Hearts trading characters are here along with FF 7 weapons, the second hero if MGS - Raiden have stepped in with Majin Buu of Dragon Ball and 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.

Aya the swordswoman from the Onechanbara series is the cover girl of this week's Toys Update. Created by Hagii Shunya who has brought out the full glory of many beauties through his figures, his Aya is of no exception.

Crafted completely to scale, Aya puts many supermodels to shame through the fearless flaunting of her perfect body shape and the cowgirl get up only highlights her wildness. With the clever use of semi transparent plastic, the lightness of the sashes attached to her bikini are wonderfully portrayed, softening the image of the fearless zombie hunter.

As the special product of the week, Hagii Shunya's Aya is sold at a bargain price of US$ 19.90 only and 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).



The award winning and highly successful Kingdom Hearts franchise has spawned numerous products, amongst them, the Formation Arts collection is one of the most highly anticipated releases.

Not only are they crafted loyally according to the characters' images in the game but by collecting a complete set, you can actually play chess with them.

Volume 3 of the Formation Arts series features a mixture of Square Enix's characters as well as Disney's. This set spots six characters: the Keyblade hero Sora, Queen Minnie, King Mickey's rival Pete, the sea witch Ursula, the fiery Axel and the lone wolf pirate Jack Sparrow.

Kingdom Hearts Formation Arts trading figures are shipped randomly and please order a total of 8 pieces to receive a factory sealed container. Each trading figure is sold for US$ 9.90 only.




Remember the hard times you have gone through to obtain the powerful weapons for your characters during your gameplay? Now you can get them easily via Play-Asia.com.

The collection of weapons in Final Fantasy VII Play Arts Arms Box Set contains Vincent's final weapon Death Penalty, the gun that increases strengths as your kill count increases.

Yuffie's shuriken, the Conformer is a valluable weapon against difficult enemies as its powers increases relative to that of the enemy's levels. Just as carefully made are Tifa's pair of Dragon claws, by using a metalic finish, the gloves gleams lethally under the light.

Aside from the above higher level weapons, we have Cloud's more basic blade, the Hardedge, although he got that quite early on in the game, the sheer size combined with Cloud's skills makes it a fatal weapon. Last, but not least is Aerith's Fairytale, a staff she gets in the middle of the game.

Complimenting the staff's name and the wielder's aura, Fairytale is completed with an angelic appearance.

The set of weapons currently in stock and is available for US$ 34.90 only.




By absorbing the Dai kaioshin into his body, Buu transformed his appearance into this pink pudgy innocent child. Although he appears quite harmless, naive and fun loving, he is deadly when angered because he has the ability of turning his enemies into snacks and the endless appetite of devouring them.

Unlike the real Buu, this plush of him is fairly harmless, larger than most stuff toys, standing at approximately 60 cm, he is a huge child that can occupy quite a portion of your bed. Aside from keeping you company, he can also soften the tones of your room with his rounded and pink appearance.

The two styles of Buu (happy and smiling) are both in stock and are available for the same price of US$ 49.90 only.



Raiden appears as a hero in the MGS series for a brief period. In contrast to Solid Snake the veteran, he is quite vulnerable as he lacks knowledge on the people around him and the control of the environment. Another more profound contrast between these two protagonists exists in their appearances.

Taking after the bishounen archetype and heavily influenced by the film Titanic, Raiden is designed to look androgynous. Put his figure next to your Solid Snake collection to see the difference between these two generations of heroes and marvel at the scope of thought and ingenious design that has gone into the series.

Raiden has currently stepped into the Play-Asia warehouse in his full cybernetic glory. Recruit him for US$ 179.00 only.




Men in black are currently in style, the latest figures released under the Portraits of Pirates series are Brook the living skeleton and the fear inducing villain Rob Lucci. While the undead belongs to the makuwara group, the arch nemesis of Luffy is a fang of the central government.

The figure features Rob Lucci with a cold calculating expression and a deceptively relaxed pose. Keep him away from your more docile toys to avoid breakages and put him in with the fighters for his sadistic pleasure.

Brook is the crew musician and a gentlemanly brute. The undead man of contradictions talks in educated tones but are constantly engaging in the crudest of activities.

The two sleek, terror inducing men are arriving just in time to bring you nightmares around Christmas. Rob Lucci and Brook have informed us of their arrivals in December, add them to your collection for the same price of US$ 54.90 only.



One of the most popular heroines in Gainax's hit anime Gurren Lagaan is appearing in two forms. The cutely super deformed Nendoroid form and the perfectly proportioned Wave Corporation version that shows off her voluptuousness.

Although super deformed, the expression on Yoko and her gear still show that she is a fearless fighter. Standing at around 10 cm tall, the essence of the character is reproduced aptly with a generous amount of cuteness instilled.

Instead of appearing as if she is getting into a fight as her nendoroid version shows, this proportional depiction of the redhead portrays her in one of the more relaxed moments as she has dropped her gun, removed her belt and muffler.

The nendoroid version of the female warrior is arriving in February and is available as a preorder for US$ 37.90 only, and as you wait for her super deformed figure, enjoy your time with her perfectly proportioned Wave Corporation version.

The scaled and proportioned version of Yoko is coming in January and is available for US$ 59.90 only.
