Imports: Dynasty Warriors 6 trading figurines in Japan

Excited about Dynasty Warriors 6 coming out next week? Perhaps the Japanese are excited for you too, because a new line of DW6 trading figurines will be hitting their hobby shops on February 16. That's just three days before the game's North American release, giving western importers another reason to splurge on DW collectibles.

The figurines are 140mm-160mm tall (that's 5.5 to 6.2 inches) and are priced at 840 yen (US$7.80) each. Each figurine comes with detachable weapons, a picture card, and card stand. If you do plan on importing these figurines in celebration of the new Dynasty Warriors game (or perhaps Chinese New Year!), keep in mind that these figurines are part of a trading series. That means you won't know what's inside the box until you open it. Finding people to trade figurines with might be difficult to find in the west, so try looking for an importer that'll sell the entire collection.
