Sakura: Oni (green version)

Filed under: Stephan Halder,Toy Love,Toy News — chogoman @ 6:52 pm

The end of the year comes closer and it’s snowing here, like hell.
So no reason to leave the house (yes, I already have all x-mas gifts for the family etc)
and enough time for making a Brog. Today’s foto victim is the friendly smiling guy
from above. The little diecast demon from Sakura, called Oni.
Our chairman Mr.Sjoen already made Brogs about this guy, but I thought that
there’s always some room for extra love.

Took some time till I got my Oni. No specimen for a reasonable price
poped up in the last few months. To be honest, took me 2 years or so to get one.
Maybe I missed some auctions, but no my search ended.
…or do I also need a red version?!  ;-)

OK…lets start with the box.
I think I used this phrase a few time in my Brogs, forgive me.
But the artwork of this box is fantastic, I love it. Sakura didn’t make
lots of toys, but their boxes are awesome.

Oni is protected by some cardboard and comes with a battery.

There is a battery compartment in Oni’s back.

Put the battery inside and the Sakura lightshow starts.
Oni has a flashing eye & horn gimmick.

Oni’s weapon arsenal is pretty prehistoric…he comes with a spiked club.

I end this Brog with a little Sakura-box-groupshot.

More fotos in the BBS.

C-10 Delivery

Filed under: Toy News — Jerilock @ 10:48 am

Got a very special package from Mr. C-10 himself and figured I’d document the opening for posterity.
Stage 1: Sturdy cardboard box, well sealed, wrapped with packing paper. 2″ layer of popcorn and newspapers on all sides of inner box!

Stage 2: Under the newspaper and popcorn toy wrapped in a soft cotton pillow case (?)

Stage 3: Within pillow case toy wrapped in another layer of paper

Stage 4: And now we come to the toy itself. Box top inverted to prevent piece rattling around puncturing artwork

Final: Pure perfection <3.

Thanks Joshie, it’s awesome!

Erik loves Oba Q

Filed under: Daily Money Shots,Erik Sjoen,Stoopid — Josh Fraser @ 8:28 pm

The deluxe man cave where Japanese toys go to rest in their mylar wrapping paper, Oba Q rises from the ashes of Ikea cases like some sort of rising thingy.
