Greetings from Canada, eh!
I just had a question to any fellow collectors in Japan: is their a delay in the usual release dates for Hasbro products, compared to those in the US? Or, do the product release dates generally coincide?

I'm just curious because I'm planning on moving to Japan at some point in the near future. Canada most certainly has a delay in Hasbro's releases, and its common for some things to not even make it to store shelves. I reeeeeally hope this isn't the case in Japan too, eh!
Thanks to any in advance!

Peace!

As a vintage collector, I really can't comment with much authority, but TRU always seems to be well stocked whenever I'm in there. You can look forward to a fair amount of product being up for grabs.

As for release dates, I have no idea. I get the impression it's not that long (movie figs have been available for the movie's release). They do slap distributor stickers on the back of the cards though, which might take up a little extra time.

Still, that's good news! Sounds like it fairs a bit better than here.

Thank you for the response, friend!
