"You may not find your holy grail here"

That's not to say that you're holy grail isn't there. You just can't find it. That place is insane. Esteemed toy dealer Giovanni Vaciago first brought me there in December of 2006 and the place just blew my mind. Seriously, when you leave you worry that you really did miss something great, that was just buried somewhere. But you still gotta go if you ever get the chance..

How long it takes from Tokyo? It's very very interesting... maybe I should go there sometimes.

Btw there's a Kochikame chogokin... !

I have these recurring dreams where I find little stores full of japanese toys that I want, some Ive never seen, some Ive always wanted and I end up going crazy in the store... I grab boxes greedily and spend more money than I have... then I wake up and groan and get upset because its not real. Fortunately, these stores DO exist as I have now seen. Thanks!, now I only need to get on a plane

Amazing, I can see a lot of my wanted stuffs from the glances of those small pictures. There must be a lot in there that I might be looking for. How much do they let the things go? Like for example the puny Dyna Red in your 7th Picture next to the Kamen Rider Black figure. I hope I got it right by calling it Dyna Red. It might be the release of the Sentai Hero Series item back in the 80s if I am right. I wonder how much they sell for those.

Is it just me or does the Star Wars Episode I stuff stick out like a sore thumb. Kind of like when I go to TRU later today to grab a preview Soundwave,if I were to see a couple Mazingers sitting there.

I look at that place and can just imagine myself arriving first thing in the morning, slowly digging through everything, hours and hours, pushing boxes and piles of random crap off to either side and then being told I had to leave more than 3/4 of the stuff there still unchecked, walking out wondering what if, what might still be there hiding....
