Once again, sorry for not updating this page, but if you want almost daily updates please check my Instagram page : @maxtoyco
First, just got back from Tokyo after over 3 years and in brief had an absolute wonderful time ! Have things changed ? Yes, they have … for one, 99.9% of the people wear a mask everywhere, so it was a struggle to wear a mask basically all day (for me !). As an observation even way out in the middle of now where and outside, with a single guy across the street, he kept his mask on 😉 Anyways, not putting down anyone, just a mindset shift compared to here. My main reason to go was to catch up in person with toy friends and attend Winter Wonderfest. I’ll write more about that later after my jet lag passes .. it’s true the older you get the worse the adjustment is coming home (!) Toy shopping wise made it to a few places, but found a lack of Bullmark/Marusan figures .. gone were the days of 3-4+ rows deep of them and at least 5-6+ full cases … now they were single file/row, spread out and barely a few cases for vintage or a mix of vintage with newer Medicom stuff. I can only speculate the vintage stuff is mostly online now, which makes total sense since foreign collectors have not really returned (yet). Oh, I have to say, I’d say I’m an advanced collector and the shelves had vinyls, but lots of newer stuff, that I had zero interest in 😉
