Just a question for those collectors based in Japan. Is it cheaper to buy a vintage Takara or Popy figure in Japan and have it shipped to the states? My impression is that these figures should be much more common in Japan than here. What are the prices like in Japan for vintage figures compared to those same figures in the states? Thanks for your time!

Popy is more common than Takara. ROTJ Tskuda is the most common of them all.

In Japan Popy and Takara run about exactly as they do in the US. At times you can find the prices dead on or higher than the US market. Once in awhile you will bump into a great price here and there.

When I visit Japan, I usually leave behind almost every Popy / Takara because the prices are too high to flip or for my own collection.
