Show Notes

Special Guest: DeKevin

Review: Maguro by Mame Yoyashi
The toy that won Designer Toy of the Year (Fan Pick);  MAGURO 豆もやし社長 –  by Mame Moyashi. If you fit into the food/art toy collecting group of collectors and so happen to love sushi, we think this may be the toy for you! Check out this figure, which is a 4.5″ PVC figure that clearly depicts a sad looking tuna ready to be served. The figure features articulation in the arms, tail and head and comes equipped with sashimi knife.

Review: War Stars Bootleg Kids by Jay O’leary
These things are the real deal or maybe the exact opposite. From artist Jay O’leary comes the bootleg card set of Bootleg Kids War Stars. You can only get these in very limited numbers and they will be available again to you during SDCC. These are too fun to pass up even if they aren’t fully legit.

Review: Gocodo, SkullToys & Punk Drunkers Toys
A wide selection of Japanese vinyl toys from several of the independent Japanese Toy companies including Gocodo, Skull Toys and Punk Drunkers. The range of size and price is quite the variety in these figures. So many poops, skulls and fun vinyl figures.

Review: Kidrobot Convention Exclusive Mr. Sparkle (Pink Glitter)
For lucky best wash, use Mr. Sparkle! Homer Simpson’s doppelganger is finally here as a medium figure! Mr. Sparkle measures approximately 7” tall and is pink colored exclusively for San Diego Comic Con 2017 and Five Points Festival! Mr. Sparkle makes a wonderful addition to anyone’s collection of The Simpsons or Kidrobot!
