    Anyone know of a US website that sells Japanese toys? I was browsing the ebay, and came across a Dragonball Z toy I wouldn't mind having, only to notice that it had to be imported from Japan. The auction date listed it as a 2004 i tem, so it must still be in stores...

    Wondering if there are any sites out there that sell these things?

    Thanks!

    www.toysnjoys.com

    They are based in Hawaii and their pricing is very reasonable I have found

    There is a Japanese Toy store down the street from me. I will see if they have a website or a catalogue if you want

    Sure thing on the website or catolouge. Actually, I decided to look up the Japanese Toys R Us page, and I'm looking at it through the Babble Fish site.

    There's some cool Dragonball Z items there I wouldn't mind having, but somehow I doubt they take international orders as there prices are all in Yen(in this case, 2,229 Yen). Then there's shipping charges to think of too.

    Maby I'll have luck asking the official sites store to import them or something as a special sale...
