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.
