Recommended Posts

The Yamazaki Bakery trucks look good and will definitely be on my list.

I'm running out room for trucks...also is there a particular reason all the Tetsudo Musume trains are released through The Railway Collection? Surely there's enough interest for a proper release with lighting.

Pikachu themed Kiha 100? I would like to order one immediately. 🙂

My boys are going to love the Yamazaki bread trucks. They have a Tomica version and always announce when they spot a bread truck.

What do the national bus collections contain?  The Yokohama one sounds interesting, but 3000yen is not 1 bus is it?

 

Oh I see it's 1/80 scale.

Any layout is not complete without a school girl holding a machine gun!

 

An unusual addition but this is Japan!

 

Battle Royale scene anyone?

Given that Japan is the kind of place where guns are outlawed and the only outlaws with guns are a very exclusive minority with less than the average number of finger joints, it's a model of a "nerdy guy with a knife" which would cause outrage here.

Yes I know, it’s just that imagery has been pretty horrid of late and it just kind of made me flinch when it crept into the hobby. Realize it’s sposta be air-soft but just hit the eyeballs and gut a different way.

Japan has a big airsoft culture.   My son and I like walking on the airsoft floor at Joshnin Denki in Den Den town -- the Kid's one where the trains are on the next floor.  Lots of cool stuff.  And I've seen ads for big stores full of it.

 

Lots of manga/anima about girls with guns as well.

They're actually the Little Armory (guns made for 1/12th scale figures) girls. From left to right, Miyo Asato (w/ M4A1), Ena Toyosaki (w/ Howa Type 89), Maria Teryasu (w/ Barrett M82A1 [I've carried and fired this rifle and let's just say it stretches the imagination that a Japanese high school girl could]) and Rika Shiina (M4 Carbine). Why do I know this...

 

Also the other guys could be useful just as soldiers and not necessarily airsoft players.

Very much standard Tomytec stuff.  Checkout the Tomytec video feed for machine gun toting school girl promos.

How did I not notice they made a G-36C/K? Must've been a convention exclusive or something.

That Kobe is actually interesting to me *now*.  SIgh.   After riding the subway in Kobe a ton this past summer as my SisIL lives quite far out from the Kobe city center.  I like having trains from where I've been.   I'll have to add this to my list.  I assume they take a standard Tomytech power unit and upgrades etc.

("Is everything that I like / Immoral, illegal /or fattening...")

 

 

From the song "Ilegal, Imoral ou Engorda" ("Illegal, Immoral or Fattening") by Leo Jaime (* 1960), Brazilian singer and song-writer.
