The Japanese collector books are filled with glorious pictures!I got one of their books on hot wheels and it is just loaded with more pics than you can imagine! The only bad thing is you can't read any of the text.I checked out your link. That looks to be done in the same fashion. I may pick it up anyways just for the great reference pics.Thanks for the head's up!

I took a look to see who carried this.You can get it from Amazon.co.jp but you can't even read the checkout info! I went ahead and ordered it from Hobbylink Japan. The site is in english. I picked up the book for under $30. Just a head's up if anyone else in thinking about ordering it.

Looks great! I'll have to see if my local Japanese bookstore is going to get this one. (Very cool.)

Very interesting. Have the photos it looks a cross between Steve Sansweet's "Action Figure Archive" and John kellerman's "Guide for Collectors." Too bad it's all in Japanese.

Oh, I know what I'd be looking at, but sometimes there's cool bits of info. Minor things I didn't know before. That's the reason I'd buy the book.
