History


My business unofficially started in 2011 as a way to affordably purchase tokusatsu merchandise for myself and my friends. For the unfamiliar, “tokusatsu” is the Japanese term for live-action special effects TV shows and films. Godzilla, Ultraman, Kamen Rider, and Power Rangers (and their Japanese equivalent, Super Sentai) all qualify as tokusatsu shows.


The idea was simple: import toys for Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, get my own, and be done with it. The problem that arose is that people found out that I could get toys affordably and began asking if I could get more. I thought, “Hey, I can keep this up. It isn't that bad of a hobby."


In 2016, the hobby grew into a full fledged business, diversifying into idol pop, anime and video game merchandise, model kits, accessories, blind boxes, and more. While our primary mode of operation was convention sales, the Megaroad online store came into being at this time as well. The growth of the web store has helped fuel our growth as a business and the visibility of tokusatsu properties in the United States.


In 2023, we are proud to open our first physical store in Coraopolis, PA. Running a toy and hobby store is a lifelong goal of mine and I’m fortunate to have the help of many friends to bring this dream to life. At our physical location, we’ll be diversifying our offerings to include additional hobby items (such as trains), boutique plush, craft/art supplies, Japanese snacks, and gifts to create a joy filled destination for both the anime/video game/tokusatsu community and our local neighbors.


Not local to Pittsburgh? We hope to see you at a convention soon! We’ve attended conventions as far south as Texas, as far north as Minnesota, and as far west as Denver. Check our Calendar of Events to find out where you can see us next!
