October Shipment the 3rd: More New Stuff

Man, I love new shipments. It's like a mini X-mas every few weeks. Speaking of which, the holidays are just around the corner...

Our featured product for this shipment is Revoltech Yotsuba from the popular manga Yotsuba&. Even if you haven't heard of Yotsuba, you've probably heard of Azumanga, which was the previous manga/anime by the same creator, Kiyohiko Azuma. It's a series I highly recommend, and if you become a fan you'll want this toy (just like me). We are also offering a pre-order of Revoltech Danboard, also from Yotsuba&.

Anyways, new stuff, and some restocks. Here's the list:


Shining Tears: 1/8 Blanc Negie PVC

1/10 Mikuru Asahina Bunny Girl Ver.
Suzumiya Haruhi Collection DX TF

Gunslinger Girl Solid Works Collection TF Box (10pcs)

Zegapain: 1/8 Kaminagi Ryoko PVC

Code Geass Voice Idol Chibi TF

Gurren Lagann: 1/8 Yoko PVC

New October Shipment part 2: Ship harder

Now we're really on a roll. Another new shipment for October (and we are far from done).

This time, we're featuring the new Optimus Prime Playing iPod from the Transformers Music Label, which is a special edition Prime that includes a trailer that functions as an iPod dock. Also for you Masterpiece fanatics, we have gotten a re-stock of the MP-06 Masterpiece Skywarp, so if you haven't picked it up you still have a chance.

The first of our Gurren Lagann products has also come in, a non-scale model kit of the combined Gurren Lagann itself. Fun to build and pretty affordable, not a bad way to start out if you want your fix of Gurren Lagann merchandise. Gattai!

As part of our Japanese Card Gaming Initiative here at Kicks (oh, I didn't mention that? Well we're getting into Japanese card games. There I've said it, so it's official now.) we are now offering booster packs of Gundam War Set #19. Expect to see more Gundam War offered from Kicks in the future, as well as promotional Gundam War events.

In addition to Gundam War, we will soon be offering Japanese language cards from Magic: The Gathering, starting with the upcoming set: Lorwyn. Remember that any language Magic Cards are tournament legal, so foreign language cards are a great way to show off your love of Magic. Expect those in early November.

Anyways, new stuff! Here's the list:

Transformers Music Label: Optimus Prime Playing iPod
MP-06 Masterpiece Skywarp (restock)

Leiji Matsumoto Original Romantic Series Arcadia TV Ver.
