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.

Our cover girl this week, Al Azif, is one of the cutest girls in anime history. Being a sprite from a magical book, she is powerful, innocent and very flighty. Super deformed, the artist focused on her wispy prettiness and innocence.

Looking at you with wide eyes, Al Azif is waiting to entrust her magic to you. Take the power, and her figure. She is now available at an unbeatable bargain price of US$ 29.90 only.


The maximum amount of purchase is set to 2 pieces per customer, share your power, send one to your friend.



Stocks were all pre-allocated last week, these mascot key chains are just so popular! Luckily, we have been able to get more stocks, so here they are!

From the famous Chocobo to the Bomb, this set of key chains features all the cute, recurring characters from the Final Fantasy series.

Chocobo and Moogles are very helpful in the game. Hang them on your bag and let them personalize your belongings. The Bomb, Tonberry and Cactuar used to be little enemies you encounter in the fields and dungeons, but they have changed sides and want to accompany you on your daily tasks.

The developers in Koei takes their image making another step further, by transforming them into SD figures, they show a side seldom seen by gamers.

Orihalcon Reycal proved to be a very inspiring title for the Revoltech artists. Flexible joints and soft material for the clothing are taken for granted, after all these are what Kaiyodo do best. But the Metal Eagle, Reycal's sidekick is quite a challenge and a valuable addition to the package.

Take the Metal Eagle apart piece by piece and assemble them onto the figure to transform Reycal into Knight Reycal. Have her pose heroically with her hair blown about her, the Revoltech team has installed joints in the hair parts to give you more room to play.

Teddy Bears aren't so cuddly anymore, deadly and blood thirsty, Gloomy the bear is the epitome of horrifying cuteness.

With all the joints installed in his chubby limbs, he can run around, chase after his master and sink his claws and fangs into him. To portray his blood thirst, there are blood stained claws and mouth parts which you can assemble to the bear's body.

To make the playing ground even, his master Bitie has his own joints and flexibility. Some times you have to show the bear who's the boss. Tie the harness around him to stop his violent acts.

Velvet the tragic princess of Valentine is the last to tell her story in Odin Sphere and last, but not the least to get her figure made. Following the valkyrie Gwendolyn, the fairy princess Mercedes, Velvet, in her gypsy costume, is posing for the figure developers of Yamato.

Crafted completely loyal to her image in the game, Velvet stood with the psypher chain around her arms and her jagged skirt flowing around her hips. Her pose did not only accentuate her elegant curves and beautiful lines, but also gave the figure makers room to breath life into her through all the details.

Simply look at the shades of red on her skirt and the wavy folds in the fabric. Velvet is coming in January 2010, take her home for:

Each figure is crafted loyally according to the posters as shown in the anime with the weapons stuck to the frame for a more 3D effect.

Just by seeing the items on the frame, you can guess the character's personality and can guess where best to start searching for them. Get a hint, the posters are the first things you need to hunt down pirates.
