Ran down to Akiba yesterday to hang with a friend who’s heading back home to the states, and took the camera this time around. Spent the down walking around and checking some of the back shops. This will be another picture This time around I found quite a few shops that carry quite a bit of the limited Gunpla from conventions. Of course they also run quite a price.
First off, here’s some of the limited Perfect Grade versions:
The prices ran about $160 dollars for the Gundam Mk II, up to 300 for the Gundam… yeah, even with %20 off, that’s costly.
Next up, you find a lot of places that have boxes you can rent out, and put stuff you want to sell in them. In a way, it’s quite hard to find what you want though because of just the mass volume of people’s stuff to go through.
I also stopped by Yellow Submarine to check out parts. I was tempted to pick up the Pro Hobby Clear Gundam Version 2.0, but unfortunately they were all gone this time around. So here’s some pictures of parts instead.
Here’s some shots from out on the street.
Also, I realized that I meant to post about shopping in Akiba. These were taken a while back, but just to give you an idea of Gunpla shopping heaven in Yodobashi Camera Akiba, well, just check out the pictures
Anyways, I didn’t pick up much, but I will post about that next time.
