One up Akiba Zone sofubi exclusive extravaganza (and overseas ordering details!)

Yesterday, One up opened a new branch in Akihabara's brand new complex: Akiba Zone. I'll write up the whole store in my next post, but I wanted to start with a focus on their sofubi exclusives, which took up an ENTIRE CASE.

Though these figures aren't up for sale on the One up website, I talked to Ken (the owner), and told him a lot of overseas collectors may be interested in them. So, he gave me his new e-mail address to pass on to you guys. I'll get to all the ordering details in a second. First up, here are closeup shots of each figure:
Yamomark GID Umipudoru (6000 yen)

Max Toy Negora (3300 yen)

Max Toy Dualos (9450 yen)
More after the jump:

Left: Rumble Monsters Adam-A-A-Answer (6800 yen); Right: Sunguts Adobarana (3000 yen)

Dream Rockets Gabari - 7000 yen
Real Head Adios (5500 yen each)

Real Head adult Chaosman (5500 yen)

Real Head Fortune Cat (3500 yen)

Instinct Toy x Banana Virus Pandemic (4700 yen)

Ken wants to let everyone know he's really busy with the new store opening, so both his replies and shipping may take a bit longer than unusual.

These are all limited, so the sooner you write in, the better. To order, send Ken an e- mail at:

To help your order go smoother, I'd recommend the following:
- Write in short, clear, direct sentences. He uses English/Japanese online translation sites, so the longer and more complex your sentences are, the more likely the translation will get garbled. Rule of thumb: Try to limit your sentences to 10 or 12 words or less.
- In your e-mail, besides the name of the figure (and maker) + quantity, I'd recommend attaching the above photo(s) of what you're looking to buy, to avoid mixups.
-I'd also recommend including your full name, address, zip code, country, and telephone number. This will help Ken process the order more quickly and get you an EMS shipping quote faster.

I hope everyone gets what they want. If you write to Ken, tell him Andy sent you. ;-)

Thanks guys! I've updated the post with the Gabari price. I hope some of you guys were able to score some figures. Mark Nagata just tweeted that the Negora is sold out.
