    New Collectibles From Ensky

    Ensky is one of the many companies we work with to deliver amazing collectibles straight from overseas to fans across the United States. They hold many IP's (intellectual property) under their belt, and we are very excited to announce the newest collectibles from them featuring characters from Demon Slayer, Kirby, and Studio Ghibli.

    Let's take a look!

    Demon Slayer

    Demon Slayer is continuing its current season on Crunchyroll (The Entertainment District Arc as of writing this blog) and what better way to celebrate than to announce new goodies of characters from the show! Ensky has recently announced new Japanese cloth (Tenugui) and puzzles featuring some of your favorite characters from the hit anime series.

    Tenugui (te=hands; nugui=wipe) are traditional Japanese cotton towels that have been a staple of the Japanese home since the 9th century.

    These multi-purpose cloths are used everyday as hand towels, dishcloths, and washcloths. They make great statement pieces as napkins, place mats, or table runners and are commonly worn as neckerchiefs or headbands. They hang elegantly on walls, providing beautiful decoration, and can serve as the perfect reusable gift wrap

    Demon Slayer tenugui measures 35x100cm (13.7x39.3in). Made in Japan. Made of 100% Cotton. There are 14 characters to choose from. Which character would you want from the lineup? Let us know in the comments below.

    MSRP $15.00 each

    If you've been enjoying the Entertainment District Arc from Demon Slayer, then check out the two new puzzles featuring the main Hashira (Tengen Uzui) featured in the season, along with the poster art for the current arc.

    These puzzles are 300 pieces and measures 26x38cm (10.2x14.9in) when completed. Each puzzle includes puzzle glue and is made from jigsaw puzzle paperboard.

    MSRP $18.00 each

    Kirby

    This year marks the 30th anniversary of Kirby, the pink puffy hero, and Ensky is releasing a beautiful 1000 piece puzzle featuring Kirby throughout the years. You can see many iterations of the lovable hero, from him sleeping in the far back, wearing a chef hat, or even taking charge with the invincible candy.

    This pink puzzle measures 51x73.5 cm when completed (20x28.9in). Includes puzzle glue.

    MSRP $36.00

    Studio Ghibli

    Lastly, Ensky has announced two new puzzles featuring characters from Studio Ghibli films. One puzzle is from "My Neighbor Totoro" featuring Totoro holding an umbrella and the two sisters (Satsuki and Mei) on an adorable adventure through the tall grass, while the second puzzle is from "Kiki's Delivery Service" and features Kiki and Jiji in the botanical room. Each puzzle is 300 pieces

    New Collectibles from Megahouse

    Megahouse is starting 2022 with jam-packed news of products releasing later this year!

    If you're new to the brand and have never heard of Megahouse then welcome! Megahouse is a major Japanese toy manufacturer and BANDAI Group company. Originally founded in 1962 as Kaken, the company was purchased by BANDAI and merged with BANDAI subsidiaries Angel and B-AI in 1997 to become MegaHouse.

    The origin of the company name is a combination of the acronym Mega, Make (produce) Enjoy (enjoy) Global (worldwide Ability (talent), and House, which likens the company to a family community. And, as the word mega itself means “huge,” MegaHouse also reflects the company’s philosophy to provide dreams to our customers through its imagination and adventurous spirit.

    Tamashii Nations Announces New Macross Frontier Collectibles

    Tamashii Nations has announced three exciting new products from Macross Frontier (two from their PROPLICA line and one from their Chogokin line) that is a MUST pre-order for fans and collectors. Let us take a look at these collectibles! 

    "Figures: they move us to the core. Cool, fun, amazing, scary, sorrowful... The feelings we get from figures can change from moment to moment, but the one thing they all have in common is soul — or tamashii.

    Tamashii Nations is a place for products with tamashii instilled by Japanese master craftsmen. Based in Asakusa, Tokyo, we make fully-assembled figures for collectors, as a division of Japan's top toymaker, Bandai. Ten years have passed since the brand was established in 2007, and the products are now sold in twenty countries around the world. In 2016 we started the Tamashii Nations World Tour a series of events touring ten cities worldwide.

    Moved by our love for figures and characters, we pursue a uniqueness that cannotbe found elsewhere by bringing tamashii to the world."

    Up first are Sheryl Nome and Ranka Lee microphones from PROPLICA. These two products (each sold separately) are faithful life-sized 1/1 scale props as seen in the anime. Both microphones feature accurate sculpting, coloring, and distinctive decorations. Swap to dialogue mode  and play back some of their famous lines, which you can enjoy on their own or during songs. Use the instrumental mode to jump in with your own lyrics whenever you want to take over either of their parts. You can also combine both microphones for duet mode. 

    *This product does not have a voice amplification function.* This product contains a jack that allows it to be connected to an external speaker device.
