Show and Tell: Volks KOS-MOS ver 4 photo
Show and Tell: Volks KOS-MOS ver 4
by Chris Seto

History is a strange thing. Our perceptions of the value of an item or memory is highly associated with the number of events or happenings around it. When it comes to figure collecting, we tend to place higher value on those items which were harder to get, for example. This is probably because we remember the hardships we endured to get it rather than anything to do with the figure itself.

Alternatively, perhaps it was a figure which opened doors for you and helped get you to where you are today. Maybe looking for the item helped you discover a cool community of like minded collectors and expanded your collecting habits and made some new friends along the way. The site may or may not also have a strange blue dog with antennae on its head!

Suffice to say, this week's Show and Tell subject is steeped deep in history, from the first time I laid eyes on her to the point last year when I finally managed to complete her, the Volks KOS-MOS ver. 4 has managed to keep me enthralled!
