Weekly Toys Update: Standing at around 10 cm tall - Bearbrick Elvis Presley, Tiger Rex, Chopper and First4figure giants - Phazon Suit, Ryu Hayabusa & 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.

The super star in the music world Elvis Presley is combined with the superstar in the toy world Bear Bricks in this action figure. This standard sized toy stands around 7 cm tall, completed with 9 parts that allows 8 points of articulation.

With this amount of freedom in movement, this bearbrick figure can parody most, if not all dance poses of the quintessential musician. This miniature rock star is chosen as this week's special product, sold at a bargain price of US$ 9.90 only.

The maximum purchase is limited to 1 piece per customer. As usually, this weekly special is valid for exactly 1 week (if not sold out earlier).



Feel the wrath of the minimized Tiger Rex or T-Rex from Monster Hunter. Remember how tough he was to beat in the game, what good weapons you made out of his talons and fangs? Now you don't only own his hide and bones, you can own the whole dragon.

Although tiny, standing at around 9 cm only, the Tiger Rex still has the ability to terrorize your other toys by his fearsome snarling and battle pose. The Dynamic Monster Arts series crafted dinosaurs and dragons to a life-like degree that you can feel the air shaking with Tiger Rex's silent snarl.

Tame the monster and take him home as a true hunter, but please bear in mind that this tiny monster is not a toy for the faint hearted.

Tiger Rex has marched into our warehouse and snarling for your attention, take him home for US$ 29.90 only.

Aside from the figure, other Monster Hunter Goods came in this week. This include some home wares such as kitchen mugs, towels and bags that you can carry your hunter equipment such as your PSP consoles in.


From left onwards: Cloth Bag: US$ 4.90, Towel: 5.90, Tote Bag: US$ 9.90 and Kitchen Mug: US$ 10.90 only.

For all other products, please view here for the whole list of Monster Hunter products.



The Cosbaby series from Hot Toys features characters from many block busters such as Alien vs Predator and Pirates of the Caribbean etc. Iron Man, a highly acclaimed superhero film has its protagonist and his creation, the powered suit, super deformed in an adorable manner to join the ranks of Cosbaby.

The designers in Hot Toys are the Tony Starks in the toys industry, not only are the main features of the powered suit and its developer crafted to the last detail, with a total height of 7 cm, the trading toys contain more than nine points of articulation.

Recreate any of the exciting scenes in the movie with an injection of cuteness. There are a total seven versions, six publicly known styles and one secret version. The Iron Man Cosbabies are currently in stock, each selling for US$ 8.90 only.



Luffy may be the hero and captain of the makuwara pirate crew, but Chopper, the deer doctor is definitely the mascot of the series. According to the most recent Japanese fan poll, Chopper is ranked fourth place amongst all other cute characters, this alone demonstrates his popularity.

The figure of Chopper brings out the blue nosed reindeer's innocence by crafting an open, cheerful expression on his face and set his body in a greeting gesture. The coloring and craftsmanship is reminiscent of wood carvings. The slightly rustic design will go well with any furnishing, let Chopper give you an enthusiastic “hello” whenever you enter your room.

Say hello to Chopper for he has set off on his voyage and is scheduled to reach our warehouses in November. The doctor is currently available on preorder for US$ 24.90 only.



How can you deprive Samus of one of her most powerful suits, the Phazon Suit. First4Figures has taken files from the actual game and used their previous master piece, the Varia suit to craft this powerful weapon.

Coated completely in transparent resin to show off the metallic lighting. The special feature is brought out by installing LED lights within the figure.

Besides unique innovation, this figure also spots careful craftsmanship. The very limited 1500 figures released to the world are all hand painted with a metallic sheen. Coming with the figure is the card of authenticity to show off its exalted status.

The Phazon Suit goes well with your collection of Samus's suits, so add it to your collection, or start one with it. The suit is available on preorder for US$ 199.90 only and will arrive early next year, so stay tuned for more information.

Walking literally through a grave of swords toward you is the ninja warrior Ryu Hayabusa from one of the hottest games on Xbox360, Ninja Gaiden II. Like all other figures produced by First4figures, the sculpture is loyally modelled after the game to the last degree.

Aside from the carefully crafted base, to instill the figure of the deadly aura of its game's counterpart, this figure is bundled with a collection of weapons such as the Dragon Sword, Eclipse Scythe and Falcon's Talon.

The figure itself stands around 18 inches tall and with the his largest weapon, the Eclipse Scythe in hand, the figure is at a total height of 31 inches. Only 1999 units will be released worldwide, like other First4figures products, this figure carries a number at its base and a certificate of authenticity to show its collector's item status.

As a collectors-friendly gesture, the certificate of authenticity allows you to buy the next figure from the Ninja Gaiden II series which carries the same number as the ninja warrior on its base. Arriving at around the same time with the Phazon Suit, Ryu Hayabusa is currently available on preorder for US$ 299.90.
