Okay, here’s a big one.

First of all, we finally finished up Sakura, which will be produced next week! Here are some shots of the preproduction model. Everything is final about this one.

Eight of these will be on sale at Yo-Shop soon.

Next one is the 2011 version of the Enigma. This time, we went for a small bearing. Colours are final, coating might switch to Candy Blast, we’ll see. Release will be in early 2011, maybe already in December 2010.

Yo-Shop will be getting five (preproduction).

And now for the big surprise: We teamed up with the guys at High Speed YoYo to bring a special coloured prerelease of the Noctu 2010 – HSYY Special Edition!

Only 15 made. Should be up there the next days.

That’s it for now, phew…
