I have this weird image of Jeff running around Tokyo like some surreal episode of Supermarket Sweep.

That show is so awesomely bad. I forgot it even existed.

A show this camp NEEDS Dale Winton as host, he will forever be the Best Super Market Sweep host.

Tokyo raid is job related so it is a huge tax write off, that means it is practically free.

You can see their panties.

Please, no.

Jeff this is your parole officer...you're not supposed to be playing these sorts of games.

Was that you who made that call?

Yeah I was the penultimate caller that Happy Hour, and called in claiming to be Jeff's parole officer.

Man I love you; I was thinking that whole happy hour how great it would be to call in and pretend to be Jeff's parole officer and then low and behold someone actually did it. It was a moment of pure zen for me. Thank you for that.

Man i hope this is mentioned at some point in today's Bombcast!!

I REALLY want this to happen and i think our hopes will be dashed if a Bombcast fronted by Jeff himself neglects to mention the Raid again.

What is this "Tokyo raid?" Is everyone in on a joke I somehow missed?

I speak Japanese, I would so go with them. 48 hours, 100,000 yen. and as many 3 liter beers as I can drink.

I accidentally woke up my family laughing in the middle of the night at this part of the podcast whilst listening on my iPod! Love the idea of a video documentary of the whole trip, flights, meals, shopping sprees and the lack of accommodation/no hotels rule. As they say: "Travel broadens the mind" (and your out of control retro games collections!)

@gas24: Did you watch the TNT where Jeff first announced his intention to do the raid? I think it's even funnier, because he is just so enthusiastic about the raid idea, and he is still in the process of pitching the idea to everyone, so he's really selling it.

I missed that TNT, which episode is it please?

The Hawken quicklook got me thinking.. What if Drew/Vinny went to Akihabara to shop for a IRL DUB Soundboard?

Get some electronic dub horns, wire them up to a control board with arcade buttons or a arduino with a PC-control interface!

It's real and it will happen.

Oh no, all this hype. I'm getting way too excited. Screw you guys.

You ever find yourself with an extra five grand lying around, half a bottle of good vodka and an inability to map out the long term implications of your actions?

Well, I did, and I halfway convinced a friend of mine who has a similar disregard for his finances to go into this with me. We came to the conclusion that we just don't love crappy TurboGrafx games enough to justify it. And that none of us speak Japanese. And that the flight back after 48 hours of nonstop drinking (no open contain laws!) and bad purchases would probably either kill us or get us detained at the airport for trying to smuggle in a bunch of airsoft rifles and a duffel bag full of unused yet crumpled yen.

...Shit, I've got to try to pitch this thing again.

The more excited the better. The raid will happen.

@Cloudenvy: I think the best thing about this site is the fact that The Raid might make sense on a content/monetary level.

@ripelivejam: There are always employment opportunities to be found on Craigslist. Prepare your body.

@ripelivejam: I've been on that side of the funds equation far more then where I am currently. Which is what makes it so dangerous, I guess.

I still don't know what's going on.

If anyone is going to Japan can they pick me up a grip of Sega Saturn games? E Bay prices are dumb.

@StarFoxA: You can hear Jeff talking about his raid plans on the Octoberkast here from around 1:06:00 onwards.
