Take-G Toys.


Knew about Take-G Toys since 2007. Takeji (Take-G) Nakagawa is the artist behind Take-G. He held an exhibition every year, and this is the only chance for collectors to see or purchase his hand crafted wood works. He usually make more for the small pieces, but the large pieces he only make 1 or 2 pieces. His work is not just a normal wood sculpture, but is the traditional Yosegi-Mokuzougan...in Japan the Hakone-Odawara region is famous for this traditional handcraft. Each piece is using different type of wood glue them together first, and then sculpt it to create the different wood tone effect, not a single drop of paint used on each piece.

This year the exhibition was held at his home and studio in Nagano, I'm so happy that I would be able to finally purchased his works and reviewed every piece at the exhibition. The piece that I got it is called "Matoi Douji", it stand about 2 ft. The piece is constructed by about over 7 pieces. There is a little guy and a chicken plane I choose to go with "Matoi Douji". This small piece stand about 6" tall, and it usually make more. But for big piece like "Matoi Douji", it will be just one off piece from the exhibition. Mr. Nakagawa usually make 2 pieces for the big one, he will keep one for future exhibition to show. This is a piece to end the year of 2011 for me. (more images after the jump...)

Amoebahood - Dynamicduo 10th anniversary.


Just received this Dynamicduo figures and the signed CD from my friend Coolrain . Both figures is Chiza and Gaeko from the Dynamicduo. Each figure around 4.5" tall come with a dynamite, sunglasses and hat. You can still order them through CharacterM. Individual blind boxed figure at $29 each. There is a golden figure mixed into the blind box. Good luck.... As for their album, DynamicDuo music is more to the hip hop beat type. So is cool to listen to in car.

hidden...


For CCKING throne, the design concept is the throne assemble by crazychildren figure boxes and 12" crazymichael boxes. There are crazychildren series 1-3 boxes with the cut shadow of the characters. Any of you remember which CC is missing in the series 2? Yes, CC18, although the figure might not see the light, but ML does leave his shadow on the throne, so he is still part of the series 2.....and will it be ever going to release..?? Looking at the shadow..look like is a character that posing upside down...

Michael Lau - 12" crazychildren king.


I haven't take pictures of the items that I received for a very very long time. Busy on my normal everyday life, travel aboard for work. Anyways, will do it for few pieces that I received into my collection. 

The CCKING just landed to my home, the carton box is huge, the figure mouth is a cool design for the figure, you can actually create different expression for the KING. Not just tongue but also can see uvula. The throne is make by vinyl and is huge. Wouldn't find a thing to complaint about, only thing is that I want the white small michael...now end up with the black.  So anyone out there wanna trade your white to my black....let me know.

Enough of the BS, let's just check out the images that I took for this piece. For those that still wanna to get the figure, you can still do it over at crazysmiles.  

Tons of images after the jump...

Fools Paradise - Da LowFool.

Fools Paradise usually release the resin figures then the 12" handmade figure. This time for LowFool is different, we first got the handmade and then now the giant 15" tall over 10" wide resin figure. Again, the joints are connected by magnet, the initial design for this figure was a lion helmet hidden Lowfool face, but Alan think is better to just stick with the giant lion head. Da LowFool is on pre-order now at Fool Paradise priced at $299 US with shipping. Figure is ready to ship in April 2012. Edition size is base on the order received, will probably know after the pre-order stop. More images after the jump.....
