Visit to Cosmo Knight Alpha (aka The Bemon Shop)

Cosmo Knight Alpha is something of a venerable old school toy shop. It's small, packed to the rafters with toys, and known as the "place to get Bemon figures."
CKA is located in Ekoda, a sleepy place on the Seibu Ikebukuro line (3 stops from Ikebukuro). The shop mostly sells vintage kaiju and indy sofubi. It's also the place where, in the past anyway, you could roll up with a tiny shot at getting a Bemon. Well, that's not so easy anymore. There's no telling when new figures will drop (it's not even clear that they're being sold through the shop anymore).

Some are sold via "official" auctions on Yahoo Japan, such as a recent Two Head that went for a fortune a few days ago.

The moral of the story is go there to check out previous releases, but don't expect to find any for sale. That being said, there's tons of other sofubi to choose from. Plus, the display case is awesome.
For display only.
