Lots of Daves has been made and customized ever since he was released last September. Hmm…in less than 3 months I already have 8 Daves on hand, 3 more will arrive December and another 2 will arrive February.

Wooo! My Friend Dave is the fastest growing character in my shelf! XD

GR Biennale Haul!

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009

biennale haul

My very own art pieces from the Giant Robot: Biennale 2 show! I can’t wait to receive them next year!

It was quite difficult to choose but I just focused on certain colors that I don’t have in my collection. I also find the Sun-min’s Monster piece really amusing. XD I like it a lot! I’m glad I was able to get one since they won’t be making those anymore — mold has been destroyed.

For those who haven’t adopted, there are still some left here.

These will be the exclusive figures for the Giant Robot: Biennale 2 show. Edition of 50 pieces each.

Warning: This is an adult collectible. They’re not candy. Do not eat! XD

More bats!!!

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.

Drawings!

Monday, September 21st, 2009

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: http://www.stitch.jp/

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

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. :)

Babo by Bwana Spoons

Friday, September 4th, 2009

Awesomeness!!!

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:

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
