Japanese Transformers Sightings **Image Intensive**

Looked through the Transformers Sightings boards, and didn't see a 'Japan' thread. Wouldn't let me start one, either. I recommend a Mod create one... cuz I'm going to be in Japan for 3 years. >)

Anywho, the wife and I just got back from the Toys 'R' Us in Kawasaki/Yokohama, so...

PICTURE TIME

Just to note, they also have Revoltech Megatron, Starscream, and Rodimus. Didn't see Prime, but I'm sure if I dig I'll find him. They aren't terribly new, however, so didn't think much of taking pictures of them. Oh, and they've also got the iPod Convoy trailer/docking station in stock. Forgot to snap a pic of that. Oh well. On with the pictures.









*YES* A LEGO CONVOY! MuwahahahahaAAAA -

Isn't taking a photo inside a store considered really offensive in Japan?

My new multi-purpose blog | My sales thread, my feedback as a seller and buyer.

Possibly. I have been thwarted everytime I have tried it.

Last attempt was to take some pictures of some really ancient arcade units in Akihabara.

Slap. No Pictures.

Wow, I wanna go.

I'm suprised at the BW stuff still on the shelves though.

I'm back!

The wife and I spent the weekend in Yokohama celebrating our wedding Anniversary, but before any of that could begin we made a quick pit stop at the TRU along the way and I was delighted to find a few new selections on the shelves. :>


BT-22 is in stock!



Henkei Sideswipe, Silverstreak, Grimlock, and Octane are now on the racks!


Oddly enough, a commemorative (I suppose) Rhinox has turned up.


And here's a new one for TF2. :>

Let me know if you guys see anything you'd like to pick up. Encore Sky Lynx, Omega Supreme, and Metroplex are still on the shelves, as well as some earlier Henkei's (Megatron, Prime, Ramjet), the G1 Reissue combo of T-Cracker and Skywarp... You get the idea.

PEACE
