Kudos to GUUMON's Brian Mahony for making the show a reality and for helping expand the frontiers of global kaijudom. As we know, indie toys are all about introducing fans to these spectacular figures, one person at a time.

That's why shows like the Nederland MonsterJam are so important. They shine a wider spotlight on the indie toy world, offering an opportunity for folks who might never have heard of kaiju or toy customs to take their first step into the great sofubi (or resin, or clay, or wood, or mashed up toy + circuit-board + vacuum tube) beyond!

Just got home from The Jam were I met Brian, who's a real nice guy!!! He signed my clear Daigomi and I bought the awesome Bullmark Bemular he'd customized with monsterkolor paint. So only 39 toys are on display from today.

Anyone in Amsterdam pay Brian and Concrete a visit!
