Default Overseas sightings: Japan

This thread is for posting sightings of licensed Transformers in Japan (as Gok started those for China & Taiwan on his trip I thought I'd do the same)

Currently I'm in Kyoto (Osaka tomorrow yay) the 2 main places I have picked things up have been in Bic Camera & Yodobashi Camera

Bic Camera
Sons of Cybertron Animated 2980 yen ($33.47 AUD)
Misc earlier waves of TF United for around 1680 yen ($18.87 AUD)

Yodobashi Camera
Sons of Cybertron 2980 yen ($33.47 AUD)
Misc earlier waves of TF United for around 1680 yen ($18.87 AUD)
MP Rodimus 14200 yen ($159.48 AUD is this a good price for it?)
MP1-L Optimus final realease 8380 yen ($94.12 AUD)
Henki/Unnited Megatron 2620 yen ($29.43)
2010 Predeking 12600 yen ($141.51)
TF Animated delux (I got electrosonic Soundwave) 1930 yen ($21.68 AUD)

I also picked up a United Wheeljack at a random toy shop down towards south kyoto when visiting a Sake brewrey for 2173 yen ($24.40 AUD) they had other united there but mainly things like wreckgar jazz and tracks, and only had the 1 wheeljack

so hopefully this can be helpful to others. Also if anyone thinks theseare good value let me know esp with the MP FIGURES as Ihaven't really priced them before

Hope you're having fun over there dude.

IMO:
  • MP-09 Rodimus Prime - Hell yeah dude, with postage this guy is close to $300 normally!
  • MP04 Optimus Prime - I paid $200 for mine at Target over here, so that is awesome!
  • 2010 Predaking - Cost me just over $300 including postage from AmiAmi in Japan, so again pretty darn good.

Hope that helps in some way mate.

The bloke's on holidays for Christ sake!

I know if I was on holidays, the last thing I would want to do is fart ass around and buy stuff for other people (especially if they haven't discussed it with me or given me payment prior)

Apologies, mknell if my post offended you. I won't post here again
I just thought it doesn't hurt to ask. But maybe it does.

Of course it doesn't hurt to ask... if he's a friend and he knows you well enough, he may be willing to assist.

The problem is how you go about asking him... there's such a thing called Private Messaging - that way mknell can politely decline or accept if he so chooses to.

By posting publicly, it opens up a can of worms as he can either decline or accept - both of which pose issues:

1.Decline - he may be viewed as unhelpful.
2.Accept - he gets burdened with additional purchase requests.

Or maybe at the end of the day, it doesn't bother him either way... just my 0.02c

No Offence taken really, I just wanted some thoughts on some of the prices, but I was going to wait and see what I find in Osaka tomorrow (shopping day yay) but in any case this is the megatron



Mainly depends on the mrs pay going through as it was meant to last Friday, we have plenty of yen on us but don't want to fall short for food etc so unfortunately most likely nothing big, but maybe on the megatron if I find it elsewhere as it is nice and small and not in gun mode lol

@Mknell:
Those prices are very awesome- and they are because no postage needs to be paid. Most of those items have like 40% shaved off!!
Get what you want/strategize/prioritize what you want most. I reckon the big ticket items would be the best- save the most in shipping.

+1

@Jazzcomp: I would only ask if he offered/suggested to purchase for people. IMO- don't ask... you come off as inconsiderate of others and only have your own interest mind. Case in point: A close friend went to HK and Japan around xmas/New Years time/Jan-I didn't even ask him to pick up toys/united stuff/targetmasters even though he offered to since he had luggage space- I didn't want to bother him since he's there for holiday/spend time with partner. Not to hunt down toys for me/lug them back.

I believe the MP-4 is actually MP-1L - the last Convoy that was just released.

Which Son's of Cybertron and you should grab the United Jazz and Wreck Gar to scalp to Americans.. and me..
