 TOYS Shooting Game Historica 3 SP - Photo Gallery
NCS Product Synopsis
NCSX The third series of Shooting Game Historica gashapon toys celebrate a jetfighter, a tank, a submarine, and even a robot which can rest on 2 or 4 legs. The default ships featured in the new set are as follows:

Wolf Fang - Blue armored mech which carries a blaster rifle
Raiden - Sleek Raiden mk-II (Red) with movable boosters
Soukyugurentai - S.O.Q-004 Toryu with multiple movable parts
Kaitei Daisensou: In the Hunt - Squat submarine designed by Irem
Maneuver Cepter Granada - A blue tank with moxie and a gun turret
Star Soldier - The Ceaser which features a transformable cockpit

   Each of the six aforementioned ships is also accompanied by a color or style variant in each box of 12 toys as follows below:

Wolf Fang - Model variant with shoulder cannon and no shoulder struts
Raiden mk-IIb (Blue color variant)
Soukyugurentai - S.O.Q-004 (Blue color variant)
Kaitei Daisensou: In the Hunt (Blue color variant)
Maneuver Cepter Granada - Model variant with two additional parts
Star Soldier - Red trim color variant; the cockpit hatch is colored blue

   Every factory sealed box of Shooting Game Historica 3 SP toys contains all 12 ships listed above. Both versions of the Wolf Fang toy also include an additional pair of legs and a platform-pelvis to attach the legs to. The Wolf Fang figure may be detached at the torso area from his normal legs and then plugged into the platform-pelvis to create a spidery version of Wolf Fang that may be wheeled along like a little race car.

   Although the quality of the ships in SGH3 is good, NCS advises taking some precautions when fiddling around with the Soukyugurentai ships since the wing hatches are delicate. They also open only one way so take care to inspect our photos to see how the hatches should be oriented and opened. The other ships are pretty sturdy and unlikely to snap or crack under the weight of your fingers. NCS took about 200 photos of the toys over the weekend and we've culled roughly 70 pictures for our obligatory Shooting Game Historica 3 image gallery which shows all 12 ships.

Wii Wireless Keyboard MH3-Tri JPN

Japanese Import: US$68.00

JAN Code: 4943765034476

 Wii Wireless Keyboard for Monster Hunter 3 Tri - New, In Stock
NCS Product Synopsis
NCSX Logitech gets in on the Monster Hunter 3-Tri launch in Japan with a slim and sleek keyboard that measures approximately 12 x 7" in area and fits most human laps. The Wireless Wii Keyboard runs on the 2.4Ghz band and has an operating range of 10m or 32.80' from point A to point B which is about the same range as the Nintendo Wavebird controller. A wireless receiver in the form of a USB dongle is slotted beneath the keyboard so you'll need to remove that and plug it into the Wii to get started.

   The keyboard is what we'd consider a high quality keyboard with springy keys and solid construction that's non-creaky. Ever buy a generic keyboard made by a generic Asian manufacturer? They're the ones that creak. The Monster Hunter keyboard doesn't make a sound. In addition to the compact keyboard, Logitech gifts buyers with a bonus eco-friendly tote decorated with the Monster Hunter 3 logo and a big dragon that you can use to lug groceries, spirits, or other needful items that must be lugged.

The keyboard connects to the console by way of lengthy USB cable which measures 165cm or 65.96" in length. Notable features for the keyboard include a waterproof design and a special coating which protects the little keys from the elements.

3DO AutoBahn Tokio JPN

Jan Code: 4984824110786
 

Publisher: Panasonic

 SOTW AutoBahn Tokio for 3DO - Sale
NCS Sale of the Week Offering: August 03, 2009
Original Release in Japan: December 22, 1995

NCSX
New and factory sealed copy of AutoBahn Tokio for the Japanese 3DO which was published by Panasonic in 1995. Back then, the original Playstation had already launched and Namco's Ridge Racer was wowing the rabble something fierce. AutoBahn tried to be something more than Ridge Racer with a Championship Mode, a Time Attack Mode, night driving theatrics, and a title screen announcer who bellowed out "AUTOBAHN TOKIO" as if his life depended on proper enunciation. The execution is a little jerky, the controls are rough, and the engine sounds are wimpy but it's a measly $16.90 for a brand new 3DO game that most players have never had the opportunity to enjoy. We use the word "enjoy" loosely.
 
Product Condition
  
NCS' remaining AutoBahn Tokio inventory is brand new, factory sealed, and still packed in the original manufacturer cartons.

Sale Offering

  
Pricing per copy of AutoBahn Tokio is set at US$16.90 each. If you reside in the USA, NCS recommends USPS Media Mail shipping for the most economical domestic service. International customers are encouraged to select USPS First Class Airmail at approximately US$11.
