We keep running into Star Wars stuff as we travel. There are two especially cool things I want to tell you about, though.
Near our hotel is a historic doll maker that mostly makes traditional collectible dolls. And some collectible dolls that are not so traditional. I give you the Dark Side Samurai displays: http://www.yoshitoku.co.jp/list/10/
Those are awesome but, as you can tell from the prices (118 yen/dollar at the moment), not exactly in our impulse purchase price range.
Today, in a store in Akihabara, I spotted the Samurai Taisho Darth Vader. Now that’s a bit more affordable! Alas, the places I’ve checked online are either out or selling them at a markup I’m not willing to pay.
