Raiders of the Lost Toychest

Some guys found an abandoned toy store warehouse chock full of toys, plastic model kits, and games from the late Showa Era (1926-89) through the early Heisei Era (1989-present), shot video of their pillaging, and posted it on YouTube. It should provide a vicarious thrill for anyone who loves to enter derelict places and search for stuff. I once found some Star Wars figures and an Alice Cooper 8-track cassette in an old house in New Jersey, but never did I come across anything like a still-in-the-box, mint-condition Nintendo Mach Rider! The title of the video is "Yume No Omochaya Haikyo," or "Abandoned Toystore of Dreams."
