Star Wars Prototype Collection

We almost totally missed a door leading to the Star Wars prototype cases. This guy had a TON of figures. I think three of these cases were all prototypes.

Spidey and His Robot Friend

Up at Citywalk, we stumbled across the “Nostalgia Museum” which had this outside. So we went in. There were tons of American toys and tin robots.

Cyberdyne

Also wanted to share that the Terminator ride is housed in a sweet building, and watching it in Japanese is a bit surreal.

Spider-Man Phone Charms

Everyone still has flip phones in Japan, and they all have a hole for you to feed a phone charm through. Every tourist spot in the country sells charms, usually with cute characters on them.

Spider-Man Perfume

Spidey smells a bit like Mary Jane.

Girly Spider Goods

There is so much cute Spider-Man stuff for girls here, from scrunchies and jewelry to pajamas and nightwear.

Spider-Man Cup O’Noodle

Spidey-head flakes make instant ramen 1000x better. Of course I bought this to take home.

Squishy Plushie

Aww! Japanese were the first to do distorted plush toys (I think). This is typical of their merchandising.

Gift Shop

The mecca of Japanese Spidey goods- the gift shop.

Spidey Photo Area

Couldn’t shoot while the ride was going, but afterwards you can get a picture with Spider-Man.
