Bwana Spoons is at it again!

Check out his really cool Dave customs in his shop. He created 9 masterpieces. Be fast since they’re selling out really fast!

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

Mono Haul

Got my boxes from STITCH a few days ago. All of these pieces came from the Dehara & David Have Mono show.

Yey! More Ice-bats and my second Dave figure (the blank one being the first)! Actually, another box containing my third Dave arrived the day after. That makes a total  of 6 art pieces from the show. XD

My shelf is more crowded now…the wing span of the bats really takes a lot space. I need to figure out a way to fit them all. I’m also expecting more customs to arrive before the year ends. I really need to trim down my collection to fund and give way for new stuff…

(I posted more pictures at the Uglydolls forums.)

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

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. :)
