For devoted toy collectors exploring Tokyo, the Medicom Toy Tokyo Skytree Town Shop is well worth a visit.
Located on the fourth floor of the Solamachi shopping complex (conveniently connected to the Tokyo Skytree) Medicom Toy’s flagship retail space offers plenty of collectible toys, figures, and souvenirs for visitors to peruse and purchase. First, guests are treated to a tremendous assortment of the company’s wildly popular Be@rbrick figures with an enormous and colorfully decorated Be@rbrick to welcome patrons as they enter the store. From there, collectors will find a wide variety of Be@rbricks inspired by elements of the local culture including Maneki-neko (“Fortune Cats”), Daruma dolls, and Kabuki. They’re joined by other distinctively crafted bears, which span the breadth of popular culture, ranging from musical artists and superheroes, to familiar movie characters.
In addition to the popular Be@rbrick figures, collectors will find the shelves lined with a suitable variety of other collectibles. Fans of Medicom Toy’s action figures will find pieces of various scales and sizes from the company’s MAFEX, Kubrick, and Ultra Detail Figure line-ups with toys based on Star Wars, Daft Punk, Disney, Gremlins, Hello Kitty, and the Marvel and DC Comics superhero universes.
The Medicom Toy Tokyo Skytree Town store joins Hot Toys’ Toy Sapiens, Kotobukiya Akihabarakan, Kaiyodo Hobby Lobby, and Square Enix’s Artnia as a must-visit destination for toy hunters and collectible enthusiasts in the Tokyo metropolitan area. Medicom Toy’s Sumida-ku venue may be reached by taking the Tobu Skytree Line to the Tokyo Skytree Station or by way of the Oshiage station by taking the Hanzomon line.
