Japan trip!

Posted: June 18, 2010 in Japan

I have returned from my stay in Japan, which is an absolutely awesome country and thought I would give my TF blog an update with my findings and hopefully help other people who are visiting for a short time locate Transformers.

First of all are two google maps I have created with the locations of shops that I personally found to sell Transformers. Some are second hand, some new, some are cabinet shops. More details on each of the places can be obtained by clicking the flags I have added. :D

Now for just a few pictures of what I found out in the shops. There is loads, loads more out there and of much better quality and rarity, and this is a very small selection to give you a taster from a few places. Most places didn’t allow cameras.

Nice Gold Lucky Draw Armada Jetfire!
