STITCH just posted some more custom bats waiting to be adopted. For those who haven’t gotten one, now is your chance to grab one. These bats will definitely fly out the window fast to their new homes.

Note that these are not your ordinary toys. These are works of art and are one of a kind pieces. Strictly for collectors and should be handled with utmost love and care. I understand that there’s a minimum required age to own them, but sadly even adults can mishandle such works of art if not taught or informed about the proper way in handling and taking care of them.

Here are some of my favorite drawings that are being sold at the Dehara and David Have Mono show.

They’re expensive! Each costs 10,500yen. I like the designs very much though. The one with My Friend Dave showing off his collection of Kaijus (first photo) is actually my first choice if ever I’m buying a drawing. (Too bad it’s already sold…)

Worth the wait!

I just got my invoice for the figures I’m adopting from the Dehara & David Have Mono show. I’m really happy in scoring everything from my priority list. Got some pretty cool custom-painted Kaijus! Will post pics when I get them.

Check out the the available stuff here:

It’s great these days that a single e-mail can get you great stuff, but nothing beats being actually there in the exhibit. Hopefully next time I’ll be able to visit Japan for these art shows.

Camping For Mono

Friday, September 18th, 2009

Dehara & Dave Have Mono show in Japan just started today. I’m currently "camped out" at the site waiting for them to start accepting orders from overseas. I’m so excited! I hope that I’ll get everything in my most wanted list. :)

Just got My Friend Dave!



He sure arrived fast. I ordered it Saturday and it arrived Wednesday! XD

It’s really a blank figure and it’s up to the owner to customize him. I’ll keep mine blank since I don’t know how to customize art toys. I’ll wait when my favorite artists have their versions on sale. 

A Menta Ice-bat For Me

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

I’m helping out a friend who has a huge designer toy collection in fixing his display. Three display rooms full of toys!!! My brother and I have been going to his house during our free time to fix and re-arrange the toys. Underneath all the clutter were great treasures…all they needed were some fresh air, proper exposure, and of course tender loving care.

In return, I got this:


This bat is my most sought after piece! I’ve been searching high and low for this. Very hard to find since only 10 pieces (+1 for another art show) were made. I’m very happy! Not only did I get to help, play with some of the toys in the house, I also got a part of my Holy Grail for my collection! XD

I’m so excited with this new kaiju piece. It’s actually meant to be customized by selected artists, thus the blank state. The look kinda reminds me of the pocket kaiju, Super Puncher that was released last year during Uglycon Tokyo.

Note that all of the My Friend Dave pieces are works of art. They are not toys that can be played with and thrown in the air or be given to the dog. All of the pieces that will be made are special and one of a kind and should be treated with utmost care.

Babo by Bwana Spoons

Friday, September 4th, 2009


Almost had a heart attack when I saw the custom Babo line-up made by Bwana Spoons for the Grass Hut show for the month of September. He made 10 special Babos for the event!

Here are some of the customs:

babo01      babo05      babo06

I already bought one before the show even opened to the public. Was tempted to get more than one, but toy budget didn’t allow me. Hehe. Can’t wait to get mine after the show. XD
