Medicom Toy Exhibition '13 - Sofubi

Medicom's latest exhibition at the Parco Museum (inside the Parco department store) in Tokyo is heavily geared towards showing current and upcoming releases and exclusives. That includes sofubi figures, Bearbricks, 12" RAH and other figures.

There are literally dozens of new sofubi releases in the works from all sorts of makers: Ilu Ilu, Target Earth, Max Toy, and many more, in addition to new tokusatsu releases from Tiger Mask, Kamen Rider, and even Aztekaiser!

Some of the figures shown looked like paint samples. Others were production pieces. And some were prototype sculpts still in development.

Here's a look at the sofubi on display:

Max Toy x Dai Kaiju salon Negora Matsuri

Yesterday a fun little event was held at the Dai Kaiju salon in Nakano. It's a combo coffee shop/bar, with some food too.
These passes were sold at the previous Design Festa. Depending on which ones you bought, you could get one, two, or three pink Max Toy Negoras (mini, mid-size, and large) at the Negora Matsuri. The passes were also good for drinks and food. It worked out to be a great deal.
