Super Fest 49 Report! Kinda.

Originally uploaded by Baikin
So everyone at Super Fest took pictures of toys and put them on thier blogs so if you want to read about the toys you probably already did somewhere else. Not that we wont talk about toy shows here its just that something else exciting was going on too, freaky bug molting!!! I told you this was not going to be the "typical" toy blog.

Me and the other half of Shirahama were walking up to the show when she saw something red on a cherry tree, we stopped to look and got a pants filling suprise! Tons of freaky bugs crawling all over the tree!!! Of course Yuriko says gross and I say cool so no surpirse there, typical boy and girl responses, we really are kids inside still. Anyway, I had to stop and take pictures and all the people walking by kept stopping to see why some white guy was taking close-up pictures of a tree and they all said the same thing, GROSS!!!!! There were little one, big ones, black ones and red ones, dry ones and wet ones, shiny ones and dull ones, it really was cool to see and I am sure something that doent get seen often. They were all over the place! Now I just wish I knew what kind of bug they were, no one that I asked knew or had ever seen them before.

Oh yeah, the next tree had a cool snail crawling on it too.

I am soooooo happy today, I picked these up at a shop that was a total surprise. I almost didnt go as they never have anything but luck be with me this time!

Fungolas attack!

Attack of the poopbeast! My better half did this sketch the other day, we have been tossing the idea around for a while and its changed a few times, this one is the best so far. It even has a nice japanese toilet logo.

I didnt put everything up last time so here is some more stuff to spend your money on in a couple weeks:

MARMIT GID Zagora, Bagun, Death Quid and Doguu. Not sure about prices but the Quid probably about 4000 yen and the others about 6000 yen?

OOOPS! Forgot this, CREATIVE DESIGN 8 inch Godzilla, 4620 yen:

Last time there was a promotion with guests from the Ultra series that would give autographs, the catch was you had to buy items from certain specified dealers to be able to get in the line for them. I didnt buy the t-shirt so I was outta luck, looks like the same deal this time around also. I am not that interested in any of the guests this time so for sure I wont be in line, that way I can save money for toys!

New blog, new things.

I had a brain storm, well, a brain trickle more like. I have been thinking for a while to put everything one place so here it is, a combo of my cat blog and other things be I find interesting and spend all my time and money on like some of you reading this do too.

First up, Super Fest 49! Coming up in a couple weeks on April 26 during Golden Week, ok not really Golden Week but the week before, a smorgasboard of vinyl and just all around sofubi confectionary. Here's a not so little menu of what will be available if you want an empty wallet:

Super Festival's own Fewture Models:

Super DX King Scale Umezz comic version Baltan Seijin! This is a jumbo size toy for sure, it dwarfs the original standard that came out a couple years back. 16 inches of crabbiness for only 12000 yen. Limited to 100 pcs.

More Fewture Models Umezz series, Eleking with Pito Seijin. Eleking is 10 tall with mini Pito Seijin holding and even more mini Eleking, pretty darn cute. Set is 7800 yen.

Last but probably my favorite just for obscurity's sake , The Human Vapor (Gasu Ningen Dai Ichigou). If you haven't seen the film it was made by TOHO and released in the 60's along with other great TOHO SF horror films like Matango and The H-Man. It's been a while since I have seen it myself and with seeing this statue I gotta go rent it, even better I should buy it and so should you. Anyway, its 5000 yen and I hope at least 8 inches tall, no size info given but it would be great to have even it's 2 inches.

Here's the poster too, the Japanese one anyway! Which are always better to tell the truth.

Here is some GIGA BRAIN toys to admire, and the King Goji looks like a Hand Paint so these might be pretty limited. Available will also be a gorgeous Gigan and Monster X from the last Godzilla movie, 5250 yen each:

SUN GUTS will have some of thier wonderful toys too:

Glam Hair Uraname 3000 yen.

Hand Paint Akuma-kun with GID omake figure, 3800 yen.

US TOYS with all the mini awesomeness you could always want, plus a few Gojira-Ya kittens too:

3 styles of mini Ultra Seven, 2100 each.

Mini Eleking long tail version, LTD to 50 pcs, 2500 yen.

Ultra Seven Pocket Kaiju Set, LTD to 50 sets, 5775 yen.

Kitties!!!!!!!!!! Naked, 3500 yen each. Not naked, 5980 each.
