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.

Giant Robot: Biennale 2

This is the big one!

gr biennale

Many incredible artists, including David Horvath, Sun-min Kim,  David Choe, Kozyndan, Jeff Soto, Bwana Spoons and much, much more! Watch out also for a collaboration piece with David, Sun-min, Dehara and Le Merde! There’s also DAVE! Two variations exclusive to Giant Robot.

Mono Haul

Saturday, October 3rd, 2009


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.)

More Customs Bats!

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.

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. :)

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

GID Menta Ice-bats

New bats have taken flight!

These Dehara customs were released in Japan at the Subcarism Tokyo show which started last May 29, 2009. Only 25 pieces each were made. Just like the green and black  Menta Ice-bats, these also came with a special custom box.

I just received my set from the post this afternoon. They sure arrived fast!
