    Greetings everyone.

    What are some good Japanese Action Figures and PSP/PS3 Games (NO Transformers.) that I can get. And the budget is say....around 70$.
    Also, feels wierd to spend so much money on just one item. So if the action figures are cheap, I'd be happy if someone could post some.

    What a bizarre request. The range of Japanese toys out there cover nearly anything imaginable - maybe you want to be more specific?

    Yeah dude, it would help if you could be more specific. For example, are you in anime figures, mecha etc?

    Well to be more specific I'll add this:

    Anything thats not Transformers.
    Categories I prefer:
    Mecha
    Revoltech ( I have Eva 01, 00, 03 and Dante)
    Anime
    Also like the Soul of Chogokin types.
    Video games (MGS, Nintendo, DMC like that etc.) characters
    Good articulation

    Hard to explain what I really want but I got tired of TF's so I wanted to buy something Japanese.

    I loves me some Figma figures. They've got great articulation and the sculpt and paint apps are a lot better than some of their Revoltech counterparts IMO.

    Revoltechs, from personal experience. Not for playing with, but damn, they sure look nice.

    Figma and Busou Shinki are reportedly pretty nice too.

    I get mine from Big Bad Toy Store. They've got most of the ones that are available in stock or for preorder and decent prices.

    Oh, They ran out of Lelouch.
    HLJ has Lelouch.

    OK so Figma is one and then Revoltech is another.

    What about Good Video game characters?

    Kotobukiya are pretty good with Final Fantasy Play Arts. Nice articulation, fantastic detail, and a decent number of accessories.

    HLJ is good for a wide selection of Japanese figures, and they have regular sales. BBTS has good customer service and a good selection of figures as well.
