        Huh, I wasn't expecting that. I wonder why Hasbro isn't doing their own distribution there anymore. This could be a good thing, Hot Toys knows that market a lot better than Hasbro. This makes a very weird licensing triangle: Hasbro sub-licenses 12-inch figures to Sideshow, Sideshow distributes and works with Hot Toys for some 12-inch pieces, and now Hot Toys distributes Hasbro product in Japan.

      By far, the $2.25 I filled up with yesterday from Costco is the lowest here.
