Weekly Toys Update: The epitome both genders: the artist's dream come true - Air, the dark sensual teacher Mirei-san, teen model - Asuka, war hero - Maeda Keiji & 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.

Trading figures from Devil May Cry 2 are chosen as the bargain items this week. Coolness and style are not inhibited by size. Although these trading figures are quite small, standing at approximately 8cm tall, they are action figures also with multiple points of articulation.

Feel free to reconstruct the stunning scenes in the game, or invent new story events for the characters with these figures.

They are now sold at a bargain price of US$ 2.49 each and the maximum purchase is limited to 3 pieces per customer. As usually, this weekly special is valid for exactly 1 week (if not sold out earlier).



Beautiful women are stars of this week's preorders. Air is somewhat of a T.V celebrity as she is both designed for and in a Japanese National TV program Plamo Tsukurou (Let's make Plastic models).

Due to her immense popularity, she is now not only available for your eyes through a TV screen, but also for your possession. Designed by the illustrator Ni0, Air has a pair of seductive cat like eyes that shines golden.

Tsukuru Shirahige, the sculptor has said that Air is a product that combines beauty, mecha and super deformed mascot in the same package. The beauty part is obvious while the mecha and deformed mascot is melded together into one giant airbrush.

The tank of the airbrush is designed as a tiny robot, so this package is does not only answer the dreams of collectors who adores beauty, but those who worships high quality mecha and cutely deformed mascots as well.



Although Mirei is an original character not attached to any specific anime or manga, but in her creator, Yamashita Shunya's mind, it seems like she has a role to fulfill. She is a woman with a hidden agenda, by masquerading as a teacher in Arisugawa Shii's high school, she is seeking to complete her mission as an assasin.

S.Y highschool seems like a very exciting place now, first there is the sword yielding prefect Shii, now we have a darkly sensual teacher. Since there is no specific story associated with these characters, feel free to purchase their busts and come up with your own story to connect them.



Gothic Lolita is a style fast becoming trendy these days and in more ways than one, the futuristic city Tokyo-3 mirrors the current Tokyo.

With her model like figure, Asuka is depicted in some perfectly matched Gothic Lolita styled garments. This figure of her portrays the innocence of youth with the softly layered tafetta skirts and lacy accessories.

The figure comes with a specially designed base, so don't worry about not being able to find the perfect place for her to model her great outfit.



Aside from beautiful women, a preorder for the first class Kabuki mono is opened as well. Maeda Keiji is the epitome of manliness, aside from being exceptionally talented in the battle field, he is very well educated and has penned quite a few books considered classical literature today.

The figure makers has chosen to depict him as a war hero, with his spear in his hand and his bright red armor donned on, he is ready to charge forwards to war. Unlike many who fights for victory, Keiji fights for the weaker side in battles as this poses more of a challenge to his superior fighting skills.

With his war horse Matsukaze, the model of Keiji is sure to become a collector's most prized item.

The lists below show what has been released this week and what is available for preordering.
