    I have an uncle going to Japan next week, and i was wondering if he would be able to find the Universe Combiners (superion/bruticus) out there, as long as he wouldn't have to go to a speciailty store.

    If not, is there any figure i should be looking out for?
    Thanks

    Yes, but only at smaller stores, (not Toys R Us or Yodobashi). Is he going to Tokyo? If so his best bet at finding it would be in Akihabara at one of the "cubical" stores in the anime/video game area. Be prepared to pay about 2-3 times the normal retail price for them though.

    If they are available in Japan that's import, so the prices are high as mentioned.

    If your uncle is staying until late February,

    If not, many Henkei figures are still easily available and some early release ones are discounted.

    thanks, but hes only staying for a week, definitely before Feb 26th. He might come back again in may, so i'll see. I asked him to get either
    Binaltech Prime
    Henkei Prowl
    Henkei Powerglide.
