NCS Product Synopsius
Update: December 11, 2007
«©NCSX» Children and adults in Germany, the Netherlands, and Japan have been entertained by Vicky the Viking and his escapades since the 70s when Runer Jonsson's children's book was adapted for television. Vicky is a young Viking lad with blonde locks who's neither strong nor especially seaworthy but he's an invaluable asset to his Viking cohorts thanks to his quick mind and snappy ideas.
Japanese manufacturer Aoshima celebrates 23 years of Vicky the Viking by releasing a figure set (8 characters total) and a Viking Boat model kit. Please note that assembly, simple tools, and plastic cement are required to put the boat together. The boat snaps together but to make it stay together, you'll need some sort of adhesive.
The Vicky the Viking & Vikings Boat Model Set is limited to only 500 pieces in Japan and pricing is set at JPY6000 or US$99.90 from NCS. Buy one and you'll be one of 500 proud owners in the world with a nifty collectible toy.
