Kabaya Japanese Hero Collection

Dec 02 2002: Japanese producers of sweets and candy often pack their goodies with little presents, so-called o-make. These o-make regularly become the one and only reason to buy the candy.

Carolina Loera: you know were in USA can I buy kabaya candies retail or wholesale, I´ll appreciate to much if you can share this with me on carolina_loera@hotmail.com GRACIAS :9
Kjeld Duits: Ashley, these figures were sold already quite a while ago so it will be difficult to find them. But I did find some at the Japanese Yahoo Auctions. You’ll need Japanese, though and a friend in Japan, because the seller won’t ship internationally… Complete set at Yahoo Auctions All Kabaya Japanese Hero auctions at Yahoo Auctions More Kabaya Goods at Yahoo Auctions Historical figures at Yahoo Auctions
Ashley: I was wondering if there was anyplace that sold/auctioned the entire collection.
