In America, finding toy-specific events is a bit of a challenge. Unless you go to an event like Toy Fair, that is (and we certainly covered that top to bottom). But in Japan, toycentric events are certainly more plentiful, such as the recent Super Festival which was held on April 25th at the Science Museum in Tokyo. Our favorite proxy, Tokyo Hunter, just happened to be in attendance and he was kind enough to take some photos just for Tomopop. Lucky us!
Stars were in attendance such as Nirasawa Yasushi (signing pictures on the floor in our gallery)and Shigeru Araki, lead actor in Kamen Rider Stronger. It also looked like a smorgasbord for collectors, ranging from original pieces to bins of super cheap plastic! Everything from kaiju to vinyl and even slightly disturbing offerings was shown off (Is that a swastika I see in there? Why yes, it is). See anything you think is awesome? Tell us in the comments!
