Toy Hunting in Japan

Toy Hunting in Japan

A couple pals of mine went to Japan this week and while I was unable to join them, they did the next best thing and took photos of everything they could while toy hunting. Here are just a few samples…

Japanese live action Spider-Man had a car and a killer robot, which seems to be a pricey item.

There was more Ultraman than you could shake a stick at, which is fine by because I LOVE Ultraman.

Wind up robots are a place I dare not go…


This whacky Thor is actually an American Toy

If Jack Kirby was replaced by Robert Crumb.

A whole store dedicated to American pop culture.

This store was all vintage Star Wars, I’d love to see this in person.

    I can accept that Invisible Woman having a big chest, but why did she look pregnant? LOL 😀
