Not a figure post but something cool going on in LA right now! Last night was the opening of Beast Astray, an art exhibit created with artwork insirted by the upcoming motion picture MALL by Joe Hahn. Check out the trailer below! With so much artwork inspired by the film by talented artists like James Jean, Komatsu Miwa, Mechikuro, Joe Hahn and many more this was a pleasure to see all this fantastic art under one roof! While the venue inside was packed with all sorts of celebrities and artists alike the crowds outside were intense as well.

Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Halloween Ver.

| Event, Good Smile Company, Nendoroid

Now here is a Nendoroid that I am beyond excited for! I heard about the planning for her a while ago and we are really excited to bring her to you directly this October at Miku Expo and NYCC! When the package came in the mail of the Nendoroid Halloween Miku I was so excited to get photos of her out for you guys! I tried a few different styles of photos but it seems I still need some work on my technique. So sadly, this cool candlelit photo is the only one from this set that made it through. I must have freaked out my neighbors a bit to have them walk into a scene of me laying on [...] Read More »

Crunchyroll was really awesome and let us switch spaces too since the event hall had a giant pillar in front of our displays.

Kill la Kill Last Episode Party!

| Event, Mamitan blog

This last Thursday the last episode of Kill la Kill had finally aired. It’s a sad moment since I’m such a huge fan, but it was so much fun watching that I wanted to enjoy the last episode surrounded by friends! We decided to throw a Kill la Kill viewing party on Friday, that way we could make sure everyone could get off work and we could watch the episode on Crunchyroll with no problems and in HD!   The only way to have a proper party is to decorate and what best to decorate for a Kill la Kill party than with Mako! The theme was Mako Family Style Dinner! So I decorated the apartment with Mako and even [...] Read More »

Toon Workshop Headphones

| Event, Good Smile Company

  Wonfes was last weekend and along with all of the amazing figure announcements, were announcements of these headphones. I’ve been getting a TON of questions so I thought I’d go ahead and spill the beans! We’ve teamed up with FOSTEX and are making our own line of headphones called Toon Workshop! We plan to collaborate with lots of different artists, creators and properties. They are these super amazing transforming headphones and I’m proud to say I’ve been involved with the development team on them for quite some time.   While there is still plenty more information on them there isn’t much I can divulge just yet. My lips are sealed! However I can tell you we’re shooting for a [...] Read More »
