The Tamashii Nations show ran from December 1 to 3 in Akihabara. There were multiple venues, but the big exhibition space with over 500 figures was in the exhibition space on Chuo Dori by Akiba Zone / Bic Camera. Bandai had people at the UDX and the main Electric Town exit passing out information about the event.
I almost missed out, as I thought the event was at the UDX Building, but that was another related event. The event was very well attended and crowded around all of these long rows of display cabinets. The displays were ordered by year and it showed the different figures available each year from ten years ago to the current year. There were hundreds of figures on display that ran the gamut from Dragonball to every mecha you could think of (almost). I believe that every figure / toy under the Tamashii Nations brand was on display somewhere. They also had some special exhibits showing future releases.
All of this was very exciting for the toy / figure collector. It was a lot of fun to see all of the figures and admire all of the craftsmanship and detail. There were also live announcements on stage, some games to play in the main room, and some special guest speakers.
