Toys 'R Us store selling gunpla. Most of them are sold at higher prices than the model shops. So unless you are going for one of those limited gunpla the rest of the ordinary ones are not worth getting there.

Gun controller for FPS games such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on XBOX 360. Interesting idea. Not sure how well it works, since most people take a while to be able to aim and shoot at the opponents successfully. Maybe they're just not used to it.
