    Question Japan?

    Are there any forum members in Japan? I'll be travelling there for three weeks and will be in Osaka (Nishinomiya)/Kobe/Koriyama/Tokyo/Yokohama. Last time I was there, Toys R Us had "takusan" hard to find Episode I figures on the pegs.

    Arigato-gozaimasu!!!

    If no one responds to this, perhaps I'll make a stop by SSG from some internet cafe or something whilst I am there!

    Cheers!!

    My buddy just got back from Japan, he was somewhere in the extreme north but I can't recall where.. he said he saw crap for SW figures, but I haven't actually spoken to him yet so I will let ya know what he knows when I see him on the weekend JP
    Something about him reminds me of my older brother, Rex.

    The packages are the same. They just slap a label on the back... if they even do that at all. I think they put a sticker over the "Hasbro" parts and have it read "Tomy". Does that really still interest you?

    from what my buddy said, the figs he saw didn't even have that- I asked him the same thing, if the packaging was any different and he said NO so I responded like you did KH.. great minds

    And JP- I should be talking to him today, so I will post whatever helps I may have tomorrow

    Thanks much Brother Carl!!!

    Most of the Japanese can read English so there is no need to reprint the cards. It's rather cost effective in that regard. The last figures I got there were from the HTF Episode I line and those had that little sticker on them.

    I have an aunt who lives in Japan, well technically not my aunt because of a divorce but whatever. My now-deceased uncle was an American GI stationed in Japan probably during the Korean War and he met and married a Japanese woman there and they had a son. They divorced long ago but she came out to the States in 1998 for his funeral and that's when I first met her. And the only time that I've met her.

    Anyway, have a blast sir.
