Part of what I love about Japan is you know what you'll find. If you know me, you know I'm a figure collector and that a lot of my trips here are spent figure hunting. I happened to be out in Akihabara on a hunt today and came across a special Persona 5 exhibit in the Kotobukiya shop there. I knew what I had to do, take pictures for you all to see. Check out the shots below to relive your glory days with the Phantom Thieves. 

Here's a look at some authentic attire from the game. From Shujin Academy uniforms to Joker's getup in he wears in dungeons. The jacket costs 150,000 Yen (about $1350), btw.

Igor sits at his desk, deciding who to make his next pact with...

Justine and Caroline are waiting for your next Persona transformation. 

Tarot cards line the walls, which one's power will you call on?

If you wanted to, you could test your hand at this shooting gallery and win a prize by knocking down particular standees.

Pro Gamer Shinya Oda was of course on hand in case you need any tips.

Here's another look at the big display of the cast.

I'm also using this feature to announce and confirm Makoto is best girl.

Last but not least, a throwback to all those text conversations you had. Joker looks pretty cute, too.
