Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- Ram Sleep Sharing Ver.

Last year, I covered the Rem “soine” version figure, and now we have a matching version for her sister Ram! Perhaps you want some company for your Rem figure, or maybe you’re just a fan of Ram. Either way, this is a great figure. As you can see, Ram is very detailed. Her curves are…

Hyperkin Retron 1 HD NES

If you missed out on Nintendo’s NES Classic Mini (and many people did given how poorly the demand was met) this may be a great alternative option.
