Nederland MonsterJam: Upcoming kaiju show in Holland!

I'm zeer excited to be able to deliver the scoop on this news. There are sofubi fans and makers in Europe, but it seems there are very few shows. Well, a whole host of sofubi figures (as well as a couple of resin pieces for good measure!) from around the world are about to descend on Europe and say Goedemiddag Nederland! (Is it just me, or does that smattering of Dutch sound like something from the Ring cycle?)

The show, curated by Brian Mahony of GUUMON, is called Nederland MonsterJam. It's set to run in Amsterdam from July 20-30, so if you've been thinking of traveling to Holland, it sounds like a great event to plan the trip around! (And don't forget to visit the Van Gogh Museum while you're there.)

There will be figures on sale from 14 toy makers including GUUMON, Paul Kaiju, MVH LASH, Max Toy, Will Long, Yamomark, Todd Robertson, BLObPUS, and more!!

Here's the full press release with all the juicy details:

"Watch for this new Kaiju Jam happening this summer in Amsterdam. Curated by Brian Mahony, owner of GUUMON Vinyl Labs. The show“Nederland MonsterJam” is a group show including unique pieces from some of the top Kaiju makers in the business. It’s a 14 artist lineup that will feature over 40 pieces at the Concrete Image Store in downtown Amsterdam.

The show’s purpose is to present a varied display of Kaiju that gives someone who comes to the show a good perspective view of what’s being done in the genre and how much it has to offer.

The Netherlands has such a strong history of art and design pervasive through the culture. What better place to have a group show,especially at the Concrete Image Store. Dirk and company always have top shelf products and shows in the gallery space that feature hard-to-find, new and rare quality items.

Whether you’re into one-offs, customs, hand paints or collaborative pieces, this show has all that and more. Pieces can be purchased at the show, and some pieces will be available online after the show’s opening day.

The dates for Nederland MonsterJam are July 20th - July 30th. The address is: Concrete Image Store, Spuistraat 250, Amsterdam, Noord-Holland 1012 VW

More info will be available soon via the GUUMON fan site on Facebook."

I've plotted the store on Google Maps. Click here for the exact location.

Sounds like it's going to be an awesome show. Big ups to Brian and the Concrete Image Store for putting the show together. As we would all say (turns out it's true), in English, Dutch, and Japanese, bonzai!!
