Lots & Lots of boxes and LOTS of toys!

I would love to spend a few days digging around in there!

The Mandarake shops have quite a few locations around Japan, but the most well known are the shops located in the Nakano Broadway shopping mall in Shibuya, Tokyo, and the complex in Akihabara. Mandarake allows for a unique shopping experience by having a series of shops in the same location that each cater to different collectors. They sell much more than rare vinyl toys…they sell pretty much every Japanese toy ever made plus tons of manga!

Here’s another video looking around at some other stuffs..

Here’s a look inside the Osaka shops…

After days of citywide destruction, having his head ripped off, and fighting Godzilla…sometimes Mechagodzilla needs to find his inner calm…


This Mechagodzilla is actually Tomy’s great little bipedal robot iSobot…with an M1-Go Mechagodzilla vinyl head stuck on. Music by Miyagi (Kyoto Garden).

Thanks to Kirkland for putting it up on TBS!

Now here is a cool video of the real MechaG getting his suit tests…yeah, it’s actually just a guy in a suit. I know…I was a little disappointed too 😉
