Sideshow’s Star War’s 12 inch line has been growing by leaps and bounds over the past couple of years. Their upcoming figures are looking good. I’m looking forward to the droids and Yoda. Though I’m not sure if I”ll get Yoda’s house. It does look very detailed. continue reading..

There are a few places to visit in Akihabara. The main one would be the Big Yellow Sign Building. At the JR Akihabara station, look for the Electric Town Exit and exit through the left side. Once out, on the right should be the building. There’s about 8 – 10 floors full of shops to check out. :)

Nakano is not as well known a place to find toys, but down at Nakano is Nakano Broadway with 4 floors of toy shops. Mandarake’s main shop is situated there amongst a variety of shops where you will find anything from Star Wars, Macross, Otaku, transformers, 12 inch figures, etc. I found this place has some rare finds as well as some good vintage toy shops. So how do you get there? Well Nakano lies 3 stops away from Shinjuku station on the JR Chuo line (Rapid). You can also take the line from Tokyo or Kanda station. The line is the orange coloured line. One you reach Nakano station, there are only two exits, North or South.
