Weekly Toys Updates: Fighters of all kinds - Princess Knights Angela, Clalaclan, the red witch Tousaka Rin, Evangelion pilots Rei & Asuka, Street Fighters - Ryu, Teiran, tiny explorers - Sackboy & 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.

Angela, our image girl for this week's Toy's Update is the princess of Agnes, a country bonded with guardian dragons. Aside from being a contestent to the Princess Waltz tournament, being a knight protector of her country is the source of her pride.

Her sculptor French Doll of Cerberus Project captures her essence through her steady eyes and her dare-devil posture. With her lance in hand, she is surely a very challenging opponent in the arena. Aside from combat power, however, the game and the figure is very much about beauty as well.

The armor Angela wears is representative of Agnes's royal family and the sculptor carefully crafted them with utmost attention such that her boots and her lance are coated with a metalic sheen.


As a special product of the week, the figure of the princess knight is sold at a bargain price of US$ 29.90 only and 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).



Aside from Angela, we have Clalaclan, another princess knight from Shining Wind. This time, the gentle princess appears in a black dress.

While her white dress version displays her sublime beauty and noble bearings, her black dress brings out a darker sensuality in her.

To go with the black dress, the sculptor Noriyama Houjun readjusted the tones of her skin, her hair and redrawn her eyes to heighten her seductiveness.


The other princess knight Clalaclan from the it RPG Shining Wind has arrived in her stunning black dress. Add her to your collection for US$ 69.90 only.



Tousaka Rin is one of the strongest opponents the protagonist of Fate Stay Night has to face during the quest for the holy grail. Coming from a line of mages, the “red witch” as Shiro calls to her, is a combination of mystery and grace.

Crafted by Asai Maki from Max factory, the figma action figure of Rin spots her in her casual clothes and her package comes with an array of accessories that allows you to recreate any battle scene.

Aside from the actual figure, the pack comes with an extra arm piece that shows her cursed left arm, her two blades, left and right hand parts that shows her grip on her gems and an additional face part that portrays her battle cry.

She doesn't have to be rooted to the ground in this figma series, with the crane attached to her back, she can leap high up into the air in a battle jump.


The red witch is temporarily taking residence in the Play-Asia.com warehouse at the moment, invite her to your home for US$ 29.90 only.



Since Rei and Asuka are fighting so hard for humanity in the anime/manga already, they are more than welcomed to have some fun in the real world.

Enjoying the last of summer, the girls are clad in their respective yukata (summer kimonos that are thinner) ready to go to the festivals. Although the package barely shows a patch of the paved pathway, the girls' clothes and demeanor shows that the activities at the shrine are very much to their tastes.

Created by Katayama Hiroki of Kurushima, the figure of the girls are sculpted to the most life-like degree down to the flick of their fingers, the fold of their kimonos to the intricate bow of their obi behind their backs.

This elegant portrayal of summer activities requires a minimum amount of assembling. Attach Rei's right arm, Asuka's left arm to their respective bodies and put Asuka's pig tails at both sides of her head to complete the display.


Capture the atmosphere of a Japanese summer festival via Rei and Asuka. The display is currently available at Play-Asia.com for US$ 299.00 only.



After the line up of beauties, its time for something more masculine. Action figures in Kaiyodo's Revoltech series are well known for the flexibility of their joints and their figure's balance. These two aspects makes their new project, Street Fighter Online character figures so sought after.

Ryu, the hero of the series who searches for the path to strength is crafted by Takuma Katsuo. The sculptor portrays the character's masculinity through his stoic expression and the power of the character through his bulging muscles.

Since Ryu's specializes in the manipulation of ki, to revive his battle scenes, the figure's package comes a long with a solidified ball of ki made from semi opaque plastic. Opposed to the stoicism of Ryu, Teiran portrays a bewitching kind of prettiness combined with lethal grace.

At the top of the Assassin religion organization Gotokukyou, Teiran's weapon of choice is a giant poisoned claw. Her sculptor Matsumoto Keiichirou has crafted her loyally after her game counterpart.

The figures of the series allows the players a level of creativity as the figures can be taken apart limb by limb and grouped back together to form a new character.

Ryu and Teiran have announced that they will fight their way to our warehouse by October and are currently available for preorder at the same price of US$ 18.90 only.



Last but not least, is something to win everybody's love. Sackboy, your tiny player character in Little Big Planet is filled to the brim with attitudes.

Ingenious in their simple lines and design, the sewn together character allows players to heap accessories on them to personalize them. Like the aim of the PS3 game design, creativity and freedom of play is the key concept behind the production of these plushes.

There are two types of plushes, the smaller ones measures around 10 cm tall which a perfect for dangling on your bags or keys. The bigger ones are around 25 cm and are excellent ornaments for your office or bed room.

The world is for you to play in and personalize, take your sackboy home and begin your creative experience. The smaller plushes are coming in November while the larger ones will come in December and all of them are available as preorders.
