When I was a kid, I remember visiting Japantown in San Francisco and drooling over all the cool toys in the shops there. Well, our friend Frankie just posted a great set of scans of classic Japanese toy posters that brought that feeling back again, including the wicked cool-looking videogame above (hey, it has English words on it – did it sell here in the U.S.?) or the neat LEGO posted included after the break. If you want more, see the post on Frankie’s blog.
