Bluetooth SSSP Communicator Pin, a necessity for those hunting monsters, aliens….or for those who just want a cool BT mic/receiver.

Yes I know, yet another Ultraman article…..sorry, I don’t wanna be a freak, but I can’t help myself. We at a JWS love Ultraman, some of our staff like the stories, others, like me, love the fashion and its total atmosphere..one member even has a full human sized Ultraman suit at home, and a 1.8 meter life like doll at home….so now you know who’s the only single member in our group too.

Thank god we are not alone in our obsession with this giant, yet delicate super hero, we bought and shipped quite a lot of products from the “A MAN OF ULTRA” shop worldwide.

Premium Bandai will release this month this amazing Bluetooth SSSP clip-on mic and receiver, where SSSP stands for Science Special Search-Party which are the brave folks who search and find bad-ass monsters and aliens.

SSSP
The original team

More than just a replica fashion statement though, this product actually improves over the original. The original communicator pin was merely a radio transmitter, where the new one works as a wireless mic, call notifier, speaker or headphone transmitter with its earphone jack and it’s a fashion statement!

Check the video and you see what I mean.

An incoming call is answered by pulling out the antenna and the ringing sound is the  tone of the original communicator, how much more authentic can it get? A little less authentic but very much welcomed are the volume buttons and buttons to change music tracks.

Indistinguishable  from the original..the intense look on your face is optional.
The mic is on top which makes for easier talking, except if you like your groin to do all the talking, then you’re out of luck.

This limited product is priced at 21,600 yen with delivery in February, pricey? Yes a bit but everything worth buying ain’t cheap, the rest is just “gamman” (Japanese for patience, in this context it means buying something cheaper while you long for the original item)shipping will not be expensive due to its light weight.

Get ready to meet the new sheriff in town..Super Mecha Toy Story Robot Sheriff.

We’ve seen some strange Toy Story merchandise before, but this one takes it to a whole new level. Get ready to meet the new sheriff in town: “Super Mecha Toy Story Robot Sheriff.”

▼ Andy got a new toy for Christmas…
and it’s gonna kick all the other toys’ butts.

toy story mech (2)

This is no fan creation – it’s an official toy recently announced by BANDAI for release this upcoming fall. It stands a full 230 millimeters (9 inches) tall, and it is packed with as much awesome as plastically possible.

But, there’s still the question: what exactly is it? Well, for starters, it’s not just one thing – it’s five separate toys joined together into one magnificent mecha. Here’s the cast of characters:

▼ We start off with Woody,
who’s looking spiffy with some rocket boots.

▼ Next is the horse Bullseye, who now has a…missile-launcher??

toy story mech (6)

▼ Then there’s Slinky with tank-feet…

toy story mech (7)

▼ …Hamm the hover-pig…

toy story mech (1)

▼ …and Rex, who looks like he’s finally the laser-shooting
dinosaur we’ve always dreamed of.

▼ And with their forces combined, they become…

▼ Super Mecha Toy Story Robot Sheriff! Awww yeahhhh!

toy story mech (3)

▼ Not sure how effective it would be to punch with a slinky,
but we’re not going to argue with awesome!

This creation story behind this Toy Story mecha was recently unveiled by Bandai in a short video. You can watch it here:

Personally I have no idea why the characters from Toy Story have basically turned into the Power Rangers, but hey, major creativity points to whoever at BANDAI came up with this thing!

If you want to get your own Toy Story mecha, it will be available starting November 25. The price is a steep 18,900 yen (US$177), but you’ve got six full months to get your piggy bank (or Godzilla bank) ready.

Sign your name with this Mobile suit Gundam Zabi Family fountain pen.

“What comes so hard from history
Comes so easy to my pen” (Susan Werner)

Yeah I know that we live in a time that handwritten letters are a rarity….replaced by the cold keyboards on our electronic devices, the traditional fountain pen leads a lonely life. Years of communicating through e-mails have made us lose this particular skill that sets us apart from our other fellow human beings, a handwritten sentence is like leaving a big fat fingerprint, sprinkled with DNA and a bit of skin tissue, there’s no doubt whose it is.

https://i2.wp.com/imperfectlyhappy.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/letter-writing.jpg

 

 

Nothing looks cooler (I’m a bit exaggerating now) than a person who takes out a fountain pen and writes a small note in a perfect distinguished handwriting , it shows analog class in a world led by everything digital and it shows confidence. A handwritten letter will open more hearts than a smiley e-emoji. It shows that you went the extra mile, and in this era of short cuts, that is a breeze of fresh air.

A fountain pen should be a reflection of oneself though , a skater who pulls out a $4000,- Mont Blanc pen to sign a check at the local diner would be more observed as a criminal than a confident business man full of “savoir de vivre”…

This collaboration model of Japanese pen maker PILOT and Premium Bandai fills the needs of  Gundam fans in the need of some classy distinguishability. Based on the Mobile Suit Gundam Zabi family this beautiful looking pen comes in green/black with the image of ZEON in gold. the point or nib of the pen is gold coloured and engraved with the letters ZEON. The tip is an “F” (fine) making it versatile in its usage (think resume..).

 

 

 

The pen comes in a nice box and includes two cartridges, blue and black and since PILOT is a world wide known brand, extra carts shouldn’t be hard to get.

The price for this lovely article is 7,560 yen (you’ll receive 75 points  too), and is now up for pre-order with delivery in October.

Gender-bent Naruto bends over seductively as sexy new anime figure

Believe it or not, that’s the male star of the hit ninja series.

Recently, we took a look at a batch of amazing photos from the upcoming Naruto stage play, which had the ninja of the hit anime and manga looking grittily realistic. Now, it’s time to go in the completely opposite direction, with a scrubbed and shiny figure that’s based on fetishized fantasies which themselves exist within a work of fiction.

NF 1

Compared to many of its contemporaries, the Naruto franchise isn’t particularly heavy on sexy fan service, so if you only follow the series casually you might not immediately recognize this devilish temptress. However, rest assured that if you’ve ever watched even a single Naruto episode, you’ve seen this character before, because that’s none other than leading man Naruto Uzumaki.

NF 2

Among the many tricks ninja in the Naruto world have up their sleeves is the ability to transform, changing their appearance into that of other people or objects. And since ninja combat is more about outwitting your opponent than beating him straight-up, during the course of his training and adventures Naruto occasionally employs the tactic of changing into a busty, scantily-clad woman, a tactic he calls the Oiroke no Jutsu, or “Sexy Technique.”

▼ The whiskers should be a dead giveaway that this is really Naruto in disguise, but the beauty of the gambit is how few male adversaries will actually bother to look at his face.

NF 3

The approximately 22-centimeter (8.7-inch) figure is priced at 12,528 yen (US$117) and is currently available here from online retailer Premium Bandai, with shipping scheduled for late September.

NF 4

Also, if you’re hoping to combine the Iroke no Jutsu with the Bunshin no Jutsu/Clone Technique, please be advised that orders are limited to three units per customer.

Let the force clean your teeth.

In an era  of electric toothbrushes, sensodyne, dental floss and jetwashers to keep our teeth clean, there is still a place for the humble toothpick. Back in good old Mesopotamia and the Roman empire, toothpicks were the main means of dental hygiene, and the fact that they ate little sugar made them sport those fantastic white Hollywood smiles..(this is a historical fact, we at JWS take our facts seriously, using all kinds of trustful sources like Gladiator and Ben Hur.)

Look perfect teeth right?

Nowadays though the toothpick would be fighting  a losing a battle against our high-sugar diet, but thanks to our improved dental cleaning methods, the toothpick can sit down and take it easy and only makes it appearance on the dinner table.

But now you’re sitting opposite of your date eating a delicious dinner and just when you want to smile about something she said, you feel that there’s something stuck in your front teeth…with your tongue you try to pry it loose, but to no avail…you look at your dish trying to figure out what it could be, if it’s white she might not notice, but ah your eye falls on the little black sesame seeds on your dish and you know that you have a problem….

How you wished that you had paid attention to this site..you would have known about the tooth saber from Bandai.

This is maybe the second best thing to a real light saber for getting rid of unwanted food particles in your mouth.

It’s genius really, you have this little Darth Vader figure on your table, looking all mysterious, and when you pull the lever on his back, he’ll hand you a toothpick hidden in his cape.  There are a total of 10 toothpicks hidden in his cape.

It’s genius for other reasons too, you can finally put a Star Wars figure in the living room without anyone making a fuss,and  if you run out of talking material, you can say “let me show you a  trick”, and fill up another 10 minutes with conversation.

Of course toothpicks also make for great finger/fork substitutes.

The Darth Vader ToothSaber is now up for pre-order with estimated release in June, and the price is 2,627 yen.

Get it now or let us get it on Amazon Japan

Limited ion plated Gundam tumbler now up for pre-order.

Gundam Cafe Online the creators of the discovery-g series which also brought us these sake cups (sixth installment), now introduced their  seventh installment.

GCO has been upping their game with this ion coated drinking tumbler, created after the RX-78-2 Gundam rocket pack “vernier thrusters”, this tumbler is a true masterpiece.

Made out of 18-8 stainless steel (this steel has superior corrosion resistance..so it says) by the craftsmen/blacksmith  of Tsubame in collaboration with  Sabae famous for its Echizen lacquer ware. Sabae is also one of the three major producer of glasses where they with more than 100 years of experience in ion plating make for the perfect partner.

The Gundam tumbler has a black titanium colored outside and a silver colored inside.

 

There is just too much involved in the production process to write down and not sound like a total bore, so trust me when I say that this tumbler isn’t something you can make yourself or something you can find at your local Wall Mart.

These tumblers have a double-wall structure preserving the warmth or coldness of the drink you pour in it splendidly.

製造工程1:治具にタンブラーを設置して手作業でプ レス加工
The basic form is made in a jig
Manufacturing process 2: continue to fine-tune the shape of the tumbler in hand

It comes in a beautiful box with illustrations of Kunio Okawara, which is a collector’s item by itself.

All the  folks who ordered the tin sake cups from us, can vouch that these products are guaranteed of the highest quality (thank you all for the nice messages) and a true collector’s dream!
