A slice of the Japanese retail toy world

The other day, as I was walking to the checkout counter of Seiyu (a modern megastore with some stuff you need and a lot more you don't want), I walked down the toy aisle and checked out the offerings. Some old favorites there: Ultraman, Kamen Rider, and the latest group of heroes in the now classic Power Rangers color palette - call 'em the boy bands of the toy world. Anyway, I thought it would be fun to snap and share some pics.

Ultraman

More after the jump:





Kamen Rider and others

Thanks, this brought back fond memories of shopping in Yodobashi Camera in Osaka. They had so many Gashapon machines it was surreal . . . .
