After we did our live-streaming show, Today's Arrival (2016/12/09), we visited Hero☆Star to check on their construction progress. Mr. Wakafuji, the owner of the bar, welcomed us there and gave us some updates on it.
The picture on the left shows Mr. Wakafuji standing next to the bar counter and you see it is still not completed at this point. He explains that the counter will be covered with acrylic board on the top of it and many on mini-size figures will be displayed in the case with LED lights. So when you sit at the counter with your drinks, you can see through all the figures right beneath your arms on the counter. When you look out of the window form the counter, you will see 2 of 7-8 feet-tall Hero Figures standing by the windows behind Mr. Wakafuji. Above your head, there will be more clear cases and shelves for like Megazords and other Toku-Hero figures to be displayed.
Hero☆Star is not just for the drinks and toys. There will be a mini Karaoke stage way back in the room with large 3 LCD displays as well as DAM Karaoke System will be installed for Tokusatsu Fans to sing their favorite Toku-related Karaoke themes. Not just for the toku-dans, but this mini-stage will be used by Ani-son & Tokusatsu Song Singers in near future as Mr. Wakafuji plans to invite many of them just like he did last time.
The bar will be open on Dec. 20th for only limited friends & customers and Mr. Wakafuji & CSTOYS International are planning a small party on Saturday, Dec. 24th starting from 2 PM JST live-streaming from Hero☆Star. We will be testing out our Online Karaoke party for the first time ever with you and our friends from the world as well. More details on this will be coming soon so stay tuned.

Wow. The first wave of Kyuranger items were massive amount and it was the largest wholesale we ever invested, and most of them went out of stock right after we activated them last Sunday. In the desperate request emails we receive from our customers, we contacted our wholesalers next morning and negotiated with them for more of them. They said they were about to pack them and send them to other shops in Japan but they held them for us and decided to wait for our another order for the 2nd wave before 1 PM JST on Monday, Feb. 13th. I was on my way to Uwajima City for the CSTOYS Toku Wave radio recording from 3 PM JST, but I stopped by at one famous hamburger chain store and was on my laptop computer while biting one of their hamburgers. Figured the how many of each Kyuranger items are needed from our store and typed on emails to our wholesalers and BANG! Hit the return key. Submission completed.
