Hey resetera!

I am currently in Japan. Any cool exclusive action figures to pick up while I'm here? Or any good shops to check out while I'm here? I love all things marvel, Godzilla, ninja, samurai. I am currently in Tokyo but also going to hakone, Kyoto, Hiroshima, Osaka.

Thanks!

Managed to get a 4 pack of the 1/6 ones for £80 from in demand toys, so I'm happy
Damn, that's good. The same thing on US eBay is $145 shipped for knockoffs.
EDIT: Wait... 1/6? I only know about the 1/4 and 1/10 ones. I meant the 1/10 ones.

I guess I should mention that HLJ are having a sale with new stuff coming in almost daily. Might find stuff that interest the folk here.

Akihabara probably has plenty of toy stores. Check out Mandarake's various branches as well for pre-owned stuff.

In Akihabara, there's a store called Lashinbang that is directly across from Super Potato (when exiting SP you'll see it to your right) that has a ton of figures and statues. I spent an hour or two looking at it, there are multiple floors.
Here's the location info.

There's also a Kotobukiya store in the area. look at this video, and check out his channel, he has some other vids on stores in the area.

There's also a huge Yodabashi Camera department store in Akihabara that has a very nice video game and toy selection. It also had a really good sushi restaurant on the top floor. There is a Square-Enix Cafe attached to the outside of it.
Some pics from Yodabashi camera that I took:







Here's the location info.

All of these places are less than a 5 min walk from each other. And there's tons more.
Enjoy! I wish I could go back to Japan soon :-D

I just saw this and immediately pre-ordered.


I preordered that too but undecided if I prefer the smaller scale or the 18” release.

NECA Terminator: Dark Fate Sarah Connor and T-800.
It's listed as the T-800 on Toyark's article, but there's been word that it's a human the model was based on.




I'm still holding out hope for a version of Sarah Connor from The Terminator, and a re-release of Kyle Reese with more articulation.

Would also be nice to see re-releases of the other figures, since they can go for quite a bit online. The only ones I see in stores are the Ultimate T-800 from Terminator 2 (which I got a few hours ago, as seen in my previous post), and the Kenner tribute figures, and I've only seen them at one Target store.

I got my SS38 Optimus Prime in the mail from Amazon. I'm honestly disappointed in the figure. I don't like transforming it. I love him in Robot mode though. It looks great though.

Scarlet Spider went up:


It's my all time fave Spider-Man costume so I def grabbed one. If HT starts doing more and more comic based figures I'ma die.
I was wondering how they got this license, but it's from the video game, which basically makes it a comic book license because there are so many suits in that game. So yeah, I'm sure they're going to milk it. Argh. I thought I was out.

In for Scarlet Spider! As a Hot Toys Spiderman completionist I feel I'm in deep shit in the coming years. My worries are about space to display more than anything. Also this sucka is on waitlist already.
