Top selling toys in Japan for week of 10/19 to 10/25

The battle for the number one sales spot is always fierce, but this week seems to illustrate just how so. The 10 spots between the two rankings are taken up by seven different franchises, several of them older than the fans buying into them...

 
 
Top sales 10/12 to 10/18 photo

Top selling toys in Japan for week of 10/12 to 10/18

It's days before Halloween so it should be no surprise that the overall ranking is dominated by two supernatural toy lines: Yo-Kai Watch and Kamen Rider Ghost. OK, it probably has less to do with Halloween and more to do with the overwhelmi...

Top selling toys in Japan for week of 9/28 to 10/4

I always get a little excited when western toys are popular in Japan. There's no doubt that high quality Japanese toys have their following among fans outside of Japan, but western toys tend to get looked down on as not being as good of qua...

Hasbro teases Transformers Titan Wars reveal at NYCC

So this is a rarity, all but one of the items ranking this week is new to the list. The only returning item is that Yo-Kai Watch watch. There's also another rare girl's toy sneaking into the top overall entries. Otherwise the rest of the ov...

This is Starscream, he only looks like Thundercracker

In the 2014 Transformers Generations line we saw Hasbro take a step away from G1 version of popular characters and throw the Transformers Armada TV series a bone with an Armada Starscream figure. Later that year Takara would follow suit wit...

Transformers Masterpiece Ironhide gets a price and date

Takara Tomy appears to be in a rush to get their newest announced Transformers Masterpiece figure into our hands. Only announced just over two months ago, we won't be waiting all that long for MP-27 Ironhide. If a somewhat suspect scre...

Top sales 7/6 to 7/12 photo

Top selling toys in Japan for week of 7/6 to 7/12

It was a short absence, but Yo-Kai watch is back and with authority. It was only a matter of time really; a series can't be in the top five so consistently and not reappear when something new comes around. Lots of other new figures, too so ...

Looks like Transformers Titan Wars is real after all

Usually Hasbro is a little better at keeping secrets than this. Back at BotCon we got an unexpected, and perhaps unintentional, sneak peak at designs for the previously unheard of Transformers Titan Wars line as part of a larger Combiner Wa...

SDCC 2015: Everything Transformers from Hasbro

Hasbro didn't play all of their cards last month at BotCon, but they certainly played their best ones. Hasbro's display and presentation at San Diego Comic Con 2015 was a little lacking compared to years past. We did finally get to see Fan ...

Top selling toys in Japan for week of 6/15 to 6/21

For some reason Toynes.jp took a short break so we don't have rankings for the week of 6/8 to 6/14, but things appear to be back on track! This particular time frame has been a bit delayed, so expect the week of 6/15 to 6/21 to be up soon a...

BotCon 2015: Transformers Fan Club reveals 2016 figure lineup

This past weekend at BotCon the Transformers Collectors Club laid out their plans for 2016. This year they didn't go nearly as obscure with their figure choices as they did with the 2015 selection. I don't want to join the subscription serv...

Top selling toys in Japan for week of 6/1 to 6/7

Normally the majority of toys we see make the rankings every week are robots. But this week things are a little different with only three bots on the list, and only two of those are Gundam. Plus we've got two girls on the list and the retur...

 
 
Combiner Hunters photo

Forget monsters, at SDCC it's all about the Combiner Hunters

You can't exactly have a villain without a hero to oppose them. Or in this case a trio of heroines. Last month Hasbro previewed their first Transformers exclusive for San Diego Comic Con, the massive premium Titan Devastator box set, and no...

Top selling toys in Japan for week of 5/25 to 5/31

Hey, this is actually a really cool mix for this sales period. Sure, we've got the usual mix of Yo-Kai Watch, Super Sentai, and Gundam, but we've also got a Transformer, a second week of Hatsune Miku, another Kamen Rider, and a Nendoroid! G...

Top sale 5/18 to 5/24 photo

Top selling toys in Japan for week of 5/18 to 5/24

Japan continues to change the concept of toys. I get that these card games are played with, but does that make them toys? Seems like quite the stretch if you ask me. OK, so Yo-Kai Medals aren't technically cards, but they're basically the s...

 
 
 
Reissue Trypticon photo

TF Platinum Edition Trypticon reissue finally confirmed

It's really happening! A few months back there was a rumble coming out of Asia that a number of G1 reissues were on their way from Hasbro and we've finally gotten confirmation of the biggest one yet: Trypticon! Neither Hasbro nor Takara Tom...
