Saint, Jordan... whomever is there, please say, "Hi" from me. It has been far too long since we last got together for monja-yaki. One day I will get back to Tokyo to say howdy in person. :(

I didn't see this until today :( Come down next year and go to dCon. See Itokin. Visit the other collectors that you like.

I tried to pick up two extra spacemen for two other people. I was about the 50th person in line outside but once inside there are already lines that long at different booths like realhead. When I get to Itokin in about 10 min it's all gone. SourLemon is trying to talk him into doing larger runs. It is still just runs of 30.

My only pick up of the show. The extra is DOT by Hiddy.

Ahh, geez I'm so jealous...

My mule couldn't get it (not that I expected him to be able to)

I really need to make it out to Dcon next year.

I scored my first two Astronauts at DCON!

I was one of the first people in their line and totally regret not picking up the Rocket Boys as well..

I'm super happy with the Astronauts! Now I just have to make room for them!

Here they are, alongside a Moon Goon by Paul Kaiju. I'm totally displaying the astronauts with this little guy, it's like they discovered it and are trying to get it back to their ship!

Damn! There are some really nice pieces in that group. The Junkyard Dog and Shef handpaint rainbow come to mind. I will definitely be keeping an eye on this.

As I thought they stayed pretty stable for a couple of days and now the Rainbow by Shef has taken off. For those who don't know, the Shef custom is a clear Lucha Bear that is taken apart and then painted on the inside by Kazu's buddy Shef (who is a cook, surprise!). They take a long time to do and are a real pain because getting the brush into some of those nooks and crannies only through the neck hole or through the wrist joint is not exactly fun. If I remember correct there were 30 or so made for Design Festa in 2008 or 2009. It might have been as high as 50 but I'm fairly sure it was less than that.

Wow, thanks for the backstory. Not looking to pick up any myself but always like to hear the behind the scenes details.

I'm assuming most of you guys have seen this. Image

Lottery entry here: http://palettetoy.blog.fc2.com/

Also side note - Can anyone chime in as to what Itokin Park actually means? Just a completely random thought.

I have ask him this question in the past... let's see if I can remember. Been a while.

Itokin Park is a completely made up name. Itokin comes from Kazu's real family name which is Ito. Itokin also happens to be a Japanese discount fashion brand but that isn't connected in case you are wondering. Park is because he loves the fun of kids playing and the best place they can do that is in a park. There is a little park near his place that he used to play in and where he used to like to go to walk his dog (passed away this past year unfortunately).

Hope that helps.
