Secret Base "Japanese Devil" show at TAG

On Saturday, TAG (Toy Art Gallery) opened its newest show: Japanese Devil. It's a Secret Base extravaganza featuring a fantastic mixture of new releases, one-offs, tattooed figures, prints, pinstriped masterpieces,  a brand new toy, and an amazing display of figures from the collection of the sofubi swami himself: Carl Kent-Smith.

As I few into LA on Sunday, I wasn't able to make it to the shop for the event's opening. Though I missed the party, I was still able to shoot the toy goodness.

Goner Boogie Man

Fan designed by Hiroshi of Three Tides Tattoo + new sofubi figure: Karakase Obake. The figure, designed by Hiroshi, is being produced by Secret Base + TAG.

Pinstriped T2K2's!

Some of the best pinstriping on a toy that I've ever seen. All four sides of each of these black ones are striped. I got the one on the right. :)

The show runs through July 28. If you're anywhere near LA, I'd strongly recommend checking it out and visiting the store! One of these helpful folks will be happy to show you around:
