Cometdebris Kappa Shonen!!

Filed under: Erik Sjoen,Toy Love,Toy News — erik sjoen @ 12:29 pm

Just got my hands on Cometdebris Kappa Shonen compliments of Koji Harmon (Thank Koji!!). This cool little guy is 6.5 inches of sofubi love! Three points of articulation and a beautiful color scheme lead to an incredibly well executed design and delivery that bring to mind the spirit of vintage kawaii sofubi such as Irutan, Kure Kure Takora, Nyarome and Unagi-Inu to name a few. Personally, I’m feeling a Fujio Akatsuka influnce, which endears me to this lil’ guy even more given my fondness for Akatusa-san’s work.

Judging by the killer artwork on the header, our lil’ Kappa buddy likes to skate as well.

Kappa Shonen and friends can be found @ the COMETDEBRIS website. Get while the gettin’ is good y’all!

The final countdown!!

Filed under: Erik Sjoen,Toy News — erik sjoen @ 11:37 pm

Well, this is it guys and gals.. The final few hours of absentee bidding, if you’re not going to make it in person, and the beginning of a long sleepless night for those anxiously awaiting the auctioneers first call. An end of an era for Ed and the beginning I’m sure for some, that will walk away with some special pieces from an absolutely fantastic collection. Let’s get ready to rumble!!

Black Out!!

Filed under: Co. POPY,Erik Sjoen,Toy News — erik sjoen @ 2:15 pm

I’m sure every collector out there is aware that Ed is parting with his magnificent DX Chogokin Black Daltanious at the upcoming Morphy Auction this Thursday. It is so flippin’ rare to see one of these, not to mention for sale. This is one of the holy trinity of Black DX’s Popy turned out. I would love to see this, the Garbin and the Godsigma together, although I’m not holding my breath. I’m sure we’ll all be watching this one VERY closely.

Memories of Morphy..

Filed under: Erik Sjoen,Toy News — erik sjoen @ 11:11 am

I woke up this morning in kind of a funk.. I’m REALLY bummed about not being able to make this auction. For those of you that were at the first one, you know what I’m talking about. There is a certain rush that happens at these things that you just can’t get off of ebay. Then there is the camaraderie that just tops it all off. It’s like being a double winner!! Although I am envious, I know everyone will have a blast and have one for the folks that can’t make it. But all is not lost! If you can’t make it Morphy makes it very easy for you to call in a bid or you can always bid online. Hopefully I’ll virtually be there with the help of facetime.. ;) This is going to be epic!

A Golden Opportunity!!

Filed under: Erik Sjoen,Toy News — erik sjoen @ 11:24 pm

As I’m sure many of you are aware, Ed “The Man” Sanford of RobotJapan.com fame will be offering up select pieces from his monumental collection for auction at Morphy’s Auction House in Denver, PA on September 13th. One of the largest collections of Japanese robot toys will head to the auction block, and along with them some insanely sweet opportunities to be had by all. The problem with this hobby at times isn’t always how much something sets you back monetarily, it’s finding the darn things. Right? Well kids, here’s your chance. You’ll find some real cream of the crop stuff here.

Head over to www.morpyauctions.com to bid/preview online or buy a catalog. Be warned.. Brace yourself for the Sanford collection, as it’s one to be reckoned with. Stay tuned for more info and insight into this epic event as we count it down. Nuff said!
