Project 1/6 10th Anniversary Bearbrick 400%

This black and white monotone 400% Bearbrick is to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Project 1/6.

Project 1/6 is Medicom Toy’s official retail store. Located in Shibuya, Tokyo, it’s a place I always visit every time I’m in Tokyo. 
Funny thing is that I can’t seem to buy anything from this store. Maybe I’m always there at a wrong time after all the exclusives have been sold out. After all, there are other places in Tokyo for Bearbrick hunting and at a much cheaper price too. 

If you wanna go Bearbrick or toy hunting, Akihabara is one of the best places to go. Akihabara is well-known for electrical and computer products but there are a lot of toy stores as well. And they are all hidden.

Don’t expect toy stores to be along the main road. Most of them are at the side roads and in upper levels of a lot of buildings.

Exit Akihabara station at the main exit and the upper three levels of the two buildings in front of you are full of toys and collectibles (Well, this was last year. Don’t know if the buildings are still there now.). 

You’ll also come across some stores selling second hand toys and find lots of bargains.

I really wanna to go back to Tokyo again but with the Japanese Yen appreciating to a record high, Bearbricks in Hong Kong are much cheaper… haha…
