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.

The four Robo Q's are ready to walk into your lives and get to know you. These toys think, feel and move. get them to run, spin and marvel at their smooth moves. You don't even have to worry about them crashing into things, they can detect obstacles before them and swerve out of harms way.

Here is the world's smallest Transformer Convoy. Take him home at an unbeatable bargain price of US$ 14.90 only. The maximum amount of purchase is set to 1 piece per person only.




Let's start with the preorders as we have something icy cool - Snow Miku, a very rare and limited version of a Nendoroid figure. Last year, in the Sapporo's Snow Festival, an ice statue of Miku is made, to celebrate her completion, Good Smile released this crystalline, chibified vocaloid.

For the first time in Nendoroid history, figure makers used clear parts. The white and blue, semi-transparent material brought out the clean, purity of snow, and showed the small details such as the snow flakes embedded in her hair.

Due to the rarity of this figure, we only accept reservations, and even then, we cannot guarantee full allocation. Please don't worry as we will only charge when we confirm your order.

Snow Miku will be coming in June. Snow in summer!
