    So my firend happens to be in Tokyo on business and she is willing to bring me back a toy. So I'm curious to know what are some of your suggestions as to what I should ask her to bring me back (keep in mind I don't want to ask her for something enormous in size).

    I've already ordered MP Grimlock and Alternity Convoy so some other suggestions would be good please.

    Depends when she actually goes there, but some Henkei figures will be the easiest to pick up. There should be some Encore figures on clearance as well I am sure :)

    Anyone know if the Disney Label stuff is cheaper in Japan? I wasn't super psyched about them but I figure my 2 yr old daughter may get a kick out of seeing it on her daddy's desk. I suppose Henkei's are the easiest choice.

    I hear Mickey Prime sold out pretty fast in Japan. Judging by the fact he's sold out in every Japanese online shops (I tried :( ), you should grab one if you can find one at retail. Good luck!

    As has been said, Henkei and Encore are you're best bet, unless she's a really good friend and would be willing to go hunting for vintage for you, you'd get some great deals then :D 

    Got him last week, still haven't opened him though!

    I bought the Color Mickey Convoy for $35, the B&W one is the same...and it's pretty much still sitting there.
