NCS Product Synopsis
Update: March 29, 2010

«©NCSX» The Sega Taikan Toys were originally scheduled to ship in April of last year but then the manufacturer delayed it to October 2009. When October rolled around, the toys were delayed again to December. Come December, the toys were delayed again to April 2010. Well, it's almost April and Sega Taikan has been delayed once again to TBA but the packaging form factor of the toys have also been changed.

   The manufacturer Organic has canceled all existing preorders for the Sega Taikan collection and is soliciting reservations for a new collection. Instead of the factory box of six toys featured in the original set, the new preorder offer is for a total of ten toys packaged in a factory sealed box. The pricing has been raised from JPY4284 to JPY7800 (US$93.90) and NCS is accepting new reservations today.

NCS Preorder Synopsis
February 17, 2009
«©NCSX» We grew up during the 80s and watched the video game industry as it boomed, busted, and boomed again. Atari kicked off the home gaming explosion but the company fizzled, only to give way to Nintendo which ruled the mid-late 80s with the Famicom in Japan and the NES stateside. Billions upon billions in profits were minted on the backs of Mario, Rockman, Samus, Simon, and more. Right in there with the Nintendo juggernaut was Sega, fighting for the gaming dollar with a procession of arcade hits, the Master System, and eventually the MegaDrive. While the original Atari is a footnote at this point, Nintendo and Sega are still going strong.

   The Sega Taikan Game Collection from Organic looks back at Sega's custom sit down coin-ops which rocked and veered from side to side to simulate the onscreen action. Four games are lovingly recreated in miniature PVC form as follows:

» Space Harrier
» Super Hang-On
» Outrun
» Thunderblade

   The product solicitation mentions a secret fifth game which we're pretty sure is Afterburner based on the silhouette. It's not Galaxy Force II since the silhouette on the flyer isn't shaped like an orb. Each miniature arcade game measures 10cm or 3.93" in length and roughly that much in height. Organic packages the toys in factory boxes which contain 6 individually sealed figures. This means each factory sealed box will contain all five arcade game miniatures and a duplicate of one of the toys.

   Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late December 2009 (delayed from an April and then an October release date) at JPY4284 or US$48.90 per factory box of 6 toys from NCS.
