Adventures in Japan and Malaysia

I just got back from a holiday to Japan and Malaysia. It was fun, we did some skiing, saw some temples and shrines, did a good lot of shopping, the usual stuff. Here's all the stuff I bought:
I'm a massive Star Wars fan, obviously, and Japan has a lot of awesome things that we can't get (for a reasonable price, or at all) in Australia.
Pokemon things! I'm a Pokemon fan too, and in Australia we get basically no Pokemon merch.
Also this awesome maglev model thing that actually floats.
Finally, the Nerf related things. Ironically no Nerf blasters, for various reasons. Japan has a very small Nerf presence, while Malaysia has very high prices. I bought Barons because they're small and fun (and not in Australia), and the Breakflip because besides the Halo stuff, Australia hasn't gotten any of the new waves of BoomCo.
Breakflip review will come soon(ish), but I'll be updating my "Thoughts on 2016 Releases" note (link is on the right side) first. Also because of the emergence of Nerf using an actual clip that they actually call a clip, I'll be updating all posts so that anything in Nerf's clip system (mags that are mislabeled as clips) will have (mag) next to wherever "clip" is used to minimise confusion (though that may just compound confusion). I'll also be editing anything involving Trustfires to not recommend Trustfires and instead recommend IMRs.
