TF Sightings | Shin Tokyo in Adelaide

02.02.2017 – Specialty store in South Australia is a rare breed of business preferably you’ll see them in downtown Adelaide along with the four competing comic shops. Most of these specialty stores carry more licensed brands to western influenced popular culture that rarely you’ll get anything from Japan.

Shin Tokyo would probably be the go to store for Japanese imports straight from the rising sun for anime, manga, gaming and even clothing apparel. The have a slice of Japan that also Gundam model kits that it’s only available here, but what stands out on this store are also the Takara Tomy released Transformers toys!

In the Philippines store like Shin Tokyo is abundance that you can find in Greenhills, but in Adelaide South Australia you can only find one that brings all the Japanese imported products though it might be pricey for those who get their regular fix back in Manila this is probably the place for South Australians get their Otaku fix.

For those Transformers fans who look for high end products above Hasbro’s quality Shin Tokyo provides a select of Transformers toys produced by Takara Tomy, which include the Masterpiece line of Generation One characters.

The also have the Japanese counterpart of the latest Generations series of toys from ‘Titans Return’ under the Transformers Legends line. You can find some of these in their glass display and they’re price point is not close enough to the Hasbro produced toys retailed at Big W, Kmart, Target, Myer or even at Toys R’ Us.

But you’re paying premium for these toys if you take quality as the choice for collecting these figures. For those who does collect them its all worth it, but the ones who collect selectively the choices are limited as they don’t have consistent products available and can only acquired through by order basis.
