Yep, Nakado Broadway was good, reminded me of Hong Kong. Found more there than in Akihabara.

Yodobashi has been the best for me in terms of retail tots, mainly die cast though. Retail Transformers get almost no shelf space at the moment due to movie toys...

I was just asking about that because of the alcohol prices here in Japan. Bic camera has awesome prices compared to NZ and it's better to buy retail than duty free. Of course I don't even know if you drink or anything... Just a recommendation if you were after anything. Are you stocking up on hot wheels while you're here? Tomica is the big one in Japan. Much more popular than matchbox or hot wheels.

Drama, just to much stress to go with it, I'm having to bite my tongue to avoid ruining a good situation so I can save up to move out and still pick up some stuff for my collection lol

Its my own fault... I let my 4 yo play with the little aerialbots that came with TR Broadside.
Seriously, less than 5 minutes in "baby silverbolt" goes missing.
Turned the place upside down to no avail.

If it were you - would you let it go or pay for a replacement?
If yes how much?
Or put another way... how much would you sell yours for? Sorry have to ask :wink:

Can confirm as well. I think I mentioned the last time it happened that I have no access to the hosts of this forum so can't fix

Trying to get a Anker battery pack for my new cellphone into New Zealand is a little more troublesome than it should be.

Wish my old version was compatible with my new phone, but as the new phone has Quick Charge 3.0 support, it refuses to with with the old battery pack that doesn't support it

Bought the three core seekers in Iron Factory's Wings of Tyrant series hoping to get all the bonus parts needed to build an extra Ghost Starscream and Sunstorm. Only to find there's only enough spare parts for a complete Ghost Starscream and it's missing the torso for Sunstorm. I bet $1 that's to be found in the conehead box set that I have no intention of getting.

They're only bonus parts so I can't really say I've been ripped off. However it's a minor case of obsessive compulsiveness that made me want to complete the parts in the first place. Oh well. Let that serve as a warning to anyone thinking about picking up any of the Wings of Tyrant items: you'll find the odd spare parts. ;)

That's happened ever since the recent site upgrade. Any orders with pre-orders will default to the POL, but if your order contains only in-stock items you have to manually select it to go into the POL on checkout otherwise it is shipped immediately. This happened to me with Titans Master Fangry.

I sent feedback on that and the response was to manually select the POL on checkout and that it should remember the setting for the next time. I'm not too confident that is the case though, so have been extra cautious when placing small orders for in-stock items.

If I'm not mistaken economy air mail is the standard delivery method when you ship your POL. Theoretically it shouldn't take any longer than usual unless you normally opt for a different delivery method.
