Ok we'll I'm in Japan again for 3 weeks to setup some computer and software and you all know that Japan is the place to be when you want to get those hard to find Transformers at a good price -- that is if you look and look around which I did. I was with a friend earlier and we strolled down Akihabara. It was raining so I needed those cool transparent and cheap umbrella from some convenience store. Our first stop was an Kotobukiya where I snag Exclusive Rescue G1 Ratchet (the green one) not bad. I got it for $60.00. Then we went to this big toy store Mandarake in Nakano where I got e-hobby Black Iron Hide for $ 30.00 the box is a damage but what the heck, I'm going to open those anyway. I saw several G1 Transformers that were preserved in their boxes and boy those were expensive. A lot of Takara collection G1 book style TFs were also at hand. The Kiss Convoy, I got loose at the shop in Akihabara with the Great Mazinger statue on the outside. Its in good condition complete except for the DVD. I got Kiss Convoy for $50.00 not bad considering its really good. Don't mind the reviews this one of the best Prime. I also saw a couple of BT-17 the exclusive Nemesis Convoy. I saw a loose one being sold at $230. Too high for me but it really looks sweet. e-hobby anime colors G1 Astrotrain is also in hand for $185 but still to expensive for me so I settle for an Henkei Astrotrain for $ 15 which I really like because its really closer to the actual G1 astrotrain figure. Akihabara is a very tempting place. If you don't get ahold of your self you'll end up in a buying spree and get broke easily. I also asked my friend to get me a couple of Henkei Thundercracker but I don't know when that will arrive though. I'm still contemplating on whether I should get the e-hobby THS02b Black Hybrid Convoy. Here's a picture of what I have right now. Also saw some newly released MA-21 Premium Movie Leader Optimus Prime with the red sword and some chrome. Those were tempting but I already got two molds of that Prime so I have to pass Premium Bumblebee with the Battle Masks were also released but upon closer inspection the paintjob was a total let down. I wonder why they didn't call it Premium rip-offs. Here's some pictures I took. Pardon me because I only use a trusty SonyEricsson phone to take it. I couldn't take many pictures because its not allowed but I managed to snag a few. Yodobashi Camera store near Akihabara Akihabara District at night I'll try to take more pictures and post 'em back whenever I can. Otsukaresamdesu! Onegaishimasu!
