Heh. That is completely

Heh. That is completely awesome. I guess I am too new around here to realize you cowrote a book. I will definitely have to pick it up.

When I was in the Marines, I actually spent a good amount of time in Japan, even in Tokyo. Oh, how I wish I could have that time back. The furthest thing from my mind at that time was collecting toys, but I did randomly wander into a couple shops, mostly to pick up airsoft guns for wars we had in the barracks. I am sure there were things in there that would blow my mind today, but I gave them little more than a glance back in 2000.

Congrats, Josh. Didn't realize you were a local hero. :)

Hey- if you are a CDX member, and you go to this book signing, be sure to wear your own CDX shirt so you can be instantly recognized as a supporter of CDX and Josh!

Very cool, congrats. But, although you have a boatload of toys in your house, I'm thinking thousands is an exaggeration. ;)

Congrats!

BTW, I used the book while IN Tokyo a couple weeks ago. The train map is a lifesaver, and the Toy 'R' Us in Kameido is great; well worth the trek.

HOWEVER: It seems there's some discrepencies in the Akihabara map...Just sayin'. Unless some stuff changed since it was written, Hobby Figure is labeled as Radio Kaikan, and the Kotobukiya shop is way off. Maybe I'm reading it wrong?

Anyway, that aside, I found the book entertaining and helpful, and I've already got folks picking up their own copies.

Thanks! Kotobukiya shop

Thanks!

Kotobukiya shop moved since publication - we're correcting that in the next run. As a matter of fact, were planning a revision for fall 08 - so if you've got comments or corrections, email them to me and we will take a look at them once we dig in.
