Merchandise on Yahoo Japan


In case some of you don't know about this (though I'm guessing many do) you can find a lot of Takeshi's Castle merchandise on Yahoo. Just here.

Of course it seems the most common item is the NES game which we all know about. I found the water guns pretty funny. I guess a few of you already have the DVDs? I might order them as I'm already in the middle of ordering from my Japanese shopping service. Any auctions that stand out? I wonder what's in the magazine with the woman on the cover.

This one is amusing:

I was hoping I'd find something that could help me identify some of the missing BGM, but I doubt that! I think even the Japanese aren't sure what some of the tracks are.

Re: Merchandise on Yahoo Japan


I'd like to get the Famicom game, because I'm collecting imports almost exclusively at the moment. I'll probably never play it, because it uses Bandai's Family Fun Fitness pad, which if you're familiar with Nintendo's Power Pad, is basically the same thing.

Inside the magazine is an article and photos of the pilot episode. If you find the Pilot Episode topic on this forum you should see some scans I did a few years ago.

Very interesting info. emoticon It's an odd question I know, but does anybody know if the Takeshi's Castle theme song (original Japanese BGM, not the UK song) can be heard uninterrupted in any Japanese episodes? I was thinking of piecing it together from the Japanese episodes to remove the voices.

I just want to finally have the Show Down music. ]I found this but the quality is a bit low. Shame as it's otherwise great. (Maybe a bit is missing from the end?)

It's missing the last half that plays during the end credits. I tried to piece it together without any narration, but it came out kinda ehhh...

So the full song is around three minutes? I guess it doesn't matter if it's a shorter version to a lot of UK keshi heads as we don't actually hear the full song—the dinky dodgems are out of commission before you know it! The full song would be nice. I'll keep looking. emoticon

Re: Merchandise on Yahoo Japan


I've always used a site called Japamart. It's essentially the same thing. I've been trying hard to find this theme song track and I'd like it in CD quality. Eventually I found this album...

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

I'm sure it has the right track, but I'm having a tough time getting the track. I used the Japanese P2P network called Perfect Dark and I can't find it there. I looked for a way to pay for it as an audio download but no luck. I've only seen it on Amazon and it seems sought after.

The last time it was on Yahoo Japan (there isn't currently an auction) it received five bids and sold for a pretty high price...

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

The cheapest it's at %E3%83%96%E3%83%AD%E3%83%BC%E3%83%89%E3%82%AD%E3%83%A3%E3%82%B9%E3%83%88%E3%83%BB%E3%83%88%E3%83%A9%E3%83%83%E3%82%AF%E3%82%B9-TBS%E7%B7%A8-%E3%83%86%E3%83%AC%E3%83%93%E4%B8%BB%E9%A1%8C%E6%AD%8C/dp/B002GKRS98]on Amazon is over 7000 yen and that's excluding the commission fees of using a shopper service and the shipping costs.

It seems to be on YouTube but the quality seems muddy to me.



Well, I tried. Not sure about forking out over fifty quid for this. emoticon
