Weekend wrap up

What a weekend! I can't say the weather was the best, but sofubi wise, it was as good as it gets. First, on Saturday, there was the Le Merde Misty Fog event at Thrashout.
Mike gave me some cool buttons, and I picked up a Le Merde mini verse resin figure and filled a couple of holes in my Gargamel micro collection.

I followed that up in the evening with an all you can drink festa at the Koenji Watami. 999 yen for 2 hours, and about 30 drinks to choose from. Not too shabby!

More after the jump:
Then on Sunday, despite the ongoing dismal weather, I checked out the Marusan exhibit in Harajuku on a hunch, and that turned out to be fantastic.
Picked up a great Ultra P book, with photos by Marusan's President.
A couple of inside shots:


After that I headed to Akihabara for a bit of toy shopping.
As luck would have it, I found a gorgeous Marusan Girara, from their insanely cool crystal line.

Girara digging a bit of Homicide.
 Finally, that evening, I headed to Aoto, where there were some great new offerings at Shinto Gangu.
Picked up a few goodies there too.
If I was a recovering toyaholic, I'd say not only did I fall off the wagon over the weekend, but I stumbled off the road, down a hill, and straight into a drainage ditch filled with sofubi. Lessez les bons temps roulez!
