Doesn't any one else here wat "Dan Vs." on The Hub? It's a great and funny show and one of the best original program on there. ;)

And to Counterpunch: Duke is the MAN in King of Fighters and I totally agree with everything you said about him.

Good Podcast guys and cheers for answering my question on the Japanese G1 figs.
At the moment Im still trying to get a decent gauge on the market but am looking forward to making the jump soon. It just seems though at this point ebay is pretty scant and doesnt have much to offer. I have also noticed the Sky Garry's that Seibertron mentioned. And I definitely took your advice and checked out the multi force figs. They look pretty neat.

Cheers again.

I just took a quick look on eBay.

Not much there, but there are some things to get started with depending on your likes.

If I were starting the micromasters would be of interest to me and are less than $100.

You also have pretenders, Powermasters, and a combiner (Guard City - great set - very expensive) along with Sky Garry.


One thing about Japanese edition stuff, most is sold MIB or MISB/MISP so that a buyer knows they are getting Japanese versions of toys. You're not going to find much loose. Occasionally, but it will usually be something that is from the later series Victory, or Masterforce.

I suggest you research using guide books. The international and Japanese Transformers toys catalog by JE ALvarez are where I started looking and finding what I liked. When you have names and an idea of what particular characters/toys you like, then you can be more specific in your eBay searches.

You will pay a premium price for Japanese toys partially because they are usually sold with box/papers, but also because they were not released stateside in many cases (again depends on what you are looking for), so there are a few less out there for possibly a lot of interested collectors.

Start small if that's your budget (micromasters), or go for it, and spend a lot to get a rare piece or two to oggle for a while.

I believe I was lucky enough to jump in before it got supercrazy, and I was able to get a smattering of different things at fairly reasonable prices to start my collection off.

Does this help?

This helps incredibly. Cheers for the tip on the Alvarez book too. I jumped straight onto Amazon and picked one up along with his Beast Wars guide.

I have been looking at some of the masterforce pretenders and also the misb micromasters you mentioned. Im so close to clicking the buy now button!

But Im thinking about picking up a mold that would be completely foreign to me to get the ball rolling. I would love to get a Victory Leo or the smaller trainbots from Headmasters to form Raiden. But like you mentioned, theres not much on ebay so im just watching the more expensive ones and wishing they were mine for the moment.

Cheers again Tigertracks. That was a great help. Greatly appreciated.
