I am going for my French Toast first...
Update - 5pm - At the airport
I`m at the airport now.
Man, its been raining the ENTIRE day here in Osaka. I had to walk through 10 mins of rain tugging thousands of dollars worth of TFs to the train station (fortunately, i have bubble wrapped, waterproofed and packed each one beforehand). This is arguably one of my largest hauls - 1 luggage, 1 backpack, 2 large handcarry rectangular paperbags... and 90% of the stuff is not for myself.
I almost slipped and crushed a paperbag of TFs as I was entering the airport monorail.
I think I need to get new shoes.
Went to the Cathay Pacific Business Class lounge and it was so packed with people and so tiny (and claustrophobic) that I decided the openess of the airport outside was much preferable. So much for these additional perks!
*Update 5 June 2011*
I have decided to update with photos and additional commentary.
My once again wholesome breakfast today.
Like mentioned above, I missed out on doing a huge raid of Hero Gangu and Entertainment Jungle yesterday evening, so today, I had to make up for it.
Got lots of stuff.
3rd party custom products. Notably, the Osaka exclusive black cobra headrobot.
C-308: Doubleclouder MIB.
Sixliner MIB, unused, C9 overall.
C-369 (MT-9) for my buddy Seb from Hero Gangu. D-16: Megatron from Entertainment Jungle, also for Seb.
D-101: Soundblaser MIB for E
Transformers Generations Deluxe lucky draw item God Primus MIB for myself (was pondering for some time over this because its more than I had in mind to be paying for this... but caved in the end!)
Lots of 'vintage' Laser Discs from Hero Gangu
1985 vintage Gramophone LP with Bluestreak box art from Hero Gangu
This is a photo that I convinced the owner of Hero Gangu to let me snap before I left the shop. This is the one I had to really think hard about. I had finished acquiring all the above and went back to the hotel to pack and to mull over the "Marlboor" edition Wheeljack. I know its a very rare piece, but it was also not cheap. But then, it is also so rare to be able to find a C10 untouched specimen of this figure. but then... ok, enough indecision... (this will be a story for another post).
On the way home. Train ticket to the airport.
I insisted on hand-carrying all my Transformers. As can be seen, my hand carry items (no check in) took up the entire overhead compartment!
Back home and just given E her Soundblaster!
