    Ebay:
    Bic Camera Namba has Alternity Convoy in silver, red, and black, and also Alternity Megatron in blue and silver. They're carrying lots of RotF Deluxe and Voyager, but were sold out of Sideswipe and the twins last week, low on Wheelie. Lots of henkei, esp Ratchet and Red Alert.

    Den Den town's Superheroes/Transformers store has tons of stuff, all series, and a pretty impressive selection of G1 originals as well. Saw MP Thundercracker elsewhere in Denden town for 6300 yen.

    Also rec Mandarake Namba in Amemura. Selection is random but they have awesome deals sometimes. Got an MIB henkei Jetfire for 1230 yen. They've got a selection of original G1 stuff in their glass cases as well. Mandarake Umeda also has some G1 originals.

    Saw RoTF Wave 4 today in Denden town! Also, the Transformers/Superhero store in Denden town is selling off a massive amount of their Henkei figures for 900 yen a pop. They have a lot of Ironhide, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, both minibot sets, Bluestreak, Prowl, Galvatron, and Octane. Just a few Hot Shot and Ratchet left, and some Dinobot as well.

    A shop in Akihabara has a Battle Gaia complete in box. Sandstorm and Shuttle Gunner was a bit off color. Great Cannon's metal wheel pins looked rusted. It was first priced at 63000yen then a week later it was dropped to 45000.

    Mandarake Complex Akihabara is having a sale this weekend so I figure they will bring in some good stock for the day of the sale.

    Saw a four foot tall PVC G1 Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus in Tokyo today. Prime was under 100,000yen but missing his gun, Magnus complete but over 100,000. How do you lose a gun that size?

    Are you there yet? Do you still need help? I was just in Tokyo last week, and can help you.

    Start with the 8th floor of Mandarake in Akihabara.

    Its here :

    COMPLEX (AKIHABARA) | Store Information | MANDARAKE

    They had a massive selection last week.

    Other than that, there is Yellow Hobby Submarine in the 4th floor of the "Radio Building" right next to the Akihabara Elelectric town exit of the JR Train Station.

    Hey guys, doesn't look like anyones posted in here for a while. But I guess it's worth shot. I'll be in Japan Tues-Sun. I'll be in Nagoya, Toyko, Shiybura, and Osaka. I'm looking for Transformers United stuff like Jazz and Tracks as well as the new Megatron repaint. Also looking Revoltechs like Predator, Woody, etc. What stores should I look out for? Any help would be much appreciated.

    If headed through Tokyo with some time to spare, check up Akihabara. It's not far from Tokyo, and there's a LOT of places there right outside the train station you can find Transformers. Likely some we dont even have here yet.

    While in the station, look for signs saying something akin to pointing out where the "Electic Town" area is. It's right out the station and across the street (if you can call it that). On the bottom floor is a Disney Store looking shop. The top few levels above that are usually ripe for the picking with TFs, both old and new.

    If anyone in Japan is looking for a Windcharger or Chopsaw or Firetrap i'd be happy to swap any of those for a Japanese exclusive scout like a Tomy Repaint-Breacher, or Tomy Repaint Insecticon. One for one.

    Or if someone wants to work something out with me over Repaint Sidearm Sideswipe, repaint Elita-1 I'd like that too.


    (Not sure if those were the only unique colour scouts & Deluxes).

    Sorry about the off-topicness.

    I was hoping to swap or part swap a Windcharger for something Japanese exclusive from the 2008 - 2011

    Stuff like TF United, Or the Japanese colour variations Sidearm Sideswipe for example, or DOTM Vortex, or something like that.

    If a Japanese or other Asian fan has a shop that they can get stuff on clearance from and is prepared to hook me up (I know there's been some sales especially in specialist toy retailers in Japan [Like the afore mentioned Tokyo Toyshop or perhaps Amazon.co.jp] ) I might even give a Windcharger for free just for doing me a favour if someone can help me out with a few things at good prices which I pay for with paypal and pay all associated postage and paypal fees on.

    And you'd get a Windcharger in return as well as all the cost of the items..

    If anyone's interested please let me know.

    Stores in Japan

    Hi there.

    Hope this place is correct for my questions.

    A friend of mine will visit Japan this September.

    Specifically he'll visit: Narita, Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Hiroshima, Miyajima, Beppu, Asosan, Kumamoto, Sasebo

    Can anyone recommend certain stores / outlet with Transformers with reasonable prices (especially Masterpieces Grimlock, Rodimus, Convoy 2.0 and /or vintage G1 stuff / Diaclone) ?

    Hope to hear some recommendations.

    Thanks.

    Denny
