    yea, i'd love to check this out. they never announce these things long ahead enough to plan a trip to Japan. I'd imagine they'll have similar things like what we saw at TF Expo a few years ago.

    Also, I just saw this. I think it’s a documentary on TFs but I’m not 100% sure. Not much info on it.
