    It's an online toy store based in Japan. They are similar to the likes of Big Bad Toy Store and TF Source. However they get exclusive figures from Takara from time to time.

    e-Hobby is owned by Part One Inc., wo were also responsible for the Binaltech packaging and instructions. So I assume e-Hobby's affiliation with Takara goes deeper than just "Japanese online store". While not exactly the Japanese counterpart to the Hasbro Toy Store website, their ties with Takara are stronger than those between, say, BBTS and Hasbro.
