    I was lucky enough to go to Japan last year, and I visited Akihabara, among other places. I love figurines and other M&A gadgets, and it is much better to look for smaller, more hidden shops, where they have cheaper figurines, sometimes because the series that were once popular are not that popular anymore or because those are second-hand figurines (still in great shape!). I found a LOT of really cheap and truly awesome ones!
    But a much better place for figurine collectors, or any Manga & Anime fan whatsoever, was a whole 7-floors tall Anime shopping centre in Kitakyushu (well, ok. 5 floors of shops, 1 floor of a small manga museum and 1 floor of cosplay and photo studio).

    PS: I went back home with 9 new figurines and a few other gadgets.... I probably would have bought more if not for the luggage limit...

    74 bucks for a classic Gameboy? I think collectors would kill someone for that price.

    I like how everything seems so expensive in Japan, like an original Gameboy is 8480 Yen, which is like $76.66 US. Buy one on Ebay and you're looking at $120ish.

    A side note, the figurine they were looking at were 2nd hand, that's why it ONLY cost $60-80. Brand new only cost double or even triple of that price. The interesting thing is although the 2nd hand version come with gem-mint condition with only half price almost, people still tend to buy it brand new because you know "waifu" thinking.

      Depends what model kits you're looking for. Gundam kits you can find in pretty much any shop that sells toys. I am a Zoids fan. Those kits currently are much harder to find. I like Mandarake, Jungle and Surugaya specialty stores.
