    Tokyo Marui is getting it's own Monster Hunter Shop! Of course it will be fully stocked with crate fulls of Monster Hunter items and goods. Some of them even exclusive to the store. There's also bonus gifts if you spend $15 or more. There are 12 icon buttons you can get and collect (see 'em below). Other gifts are stickers and coasters.

    Oh, and there will also be a giant felyne there for a few photo shoots. If you're in Tokyo, bring your children there to instill a healthy fear of large costumed felynes.[/p]Source

    I know it's a good series, but does it really need its own shop for merchandise?
    I can imagine a stand inside of a video game merchandise store, but this just seems like overkill to me.

    I know but there will be tons of Monster Hunter collectors in Japan and this shop will be most likely sell out before you know.

    Even though I don't personally play the MH series, I still love it, weirdly.

    I still remember when the Dragon Quest bar first opened...

    And how awkward the damn thing looked.

    This is one of the reasons I wish America was as awesome as Japan.


    GOODBYE, AMERICA. I AM MOVING TO JAPAN NOW.

    I guess I can see this happening... But what would they sell besides plushes and pins?

    I don't think they have access to Holy Longswords...

    They would sell all of this, probably:

    -Replica items/weapons/clothing from the Monster Hunter games
    -Monster Hunter clothing (like, shirts that have a Monster Hunter logo on them or something)
    -Monster Hunter themed candy/drinks/lunches/dinners/breakfasts
    -Monster Hunter posters/wall scrolls/those wall sticker things/wallpaper
    -Monster Hunter skins for your DS/3DS/Wii/360/PS3/Controllers
    -Monster Hunter bed items (pillowcases, sheets, bedspreads, etc)
    -Monster Hunter video games
    -Monster Hunter statuettes

    You and me both, but I guess most of us will have to wait until the items from the store are up on eBay or similar places.

    I thought it was kill five max stats monsters while you're level 1, within 2 minutes.

    Monsters don't have max stats and you don't gain levels in Monster Hunter :|

    BUT I HAVE DONE THE "DEFEAT 3 DRAGONS AND 2 DINOSAURS WHILE BUCK NAKED" QUEST.
