Short Comment: Namco Capsule Toys

You know those toys in capsules they have in the supermarket and stuff? Well, Namco's next series will be their "gals connection Part 2". The capsule figures are still in production so only a photo of the mold is available, but you can see already that they're pretty intricate. [ Link: Image ]

This part 2- scheduled for release in November, includes Ivy (Soul Calibur), Kai (Revenge of Ishtar), Valkirie, Violet (Valkirie), and Lolo and Popuka (Klonoa 2). Part 1 can be seen here as well.

Special thanks to for the news. -H.Moriarty
