Under the Radar: Space Racers Team Konatsu photo
Under the Radar: Space Racers Team Konatsu
by Brian Szabelski

So what do you think of animals in rocket-powered space cars, Tomopop? Well, if the idea appeals to you, you might just like the Space Racers Team Konatsu set! Designed by Japanese painter and designer Konatsu and sculpted by Kaijin, the set features three little cute animals — Laicone, Marine and Purin — in space cars, ready to race. Did I mention they were cute?

If you're interested in picking one up, you can find them at large retail shops like Rotofugi (Laicone, Marine and Purin) for US$40 each. They are in editions of 100 each, so they might not be around forever, but that might only be 99 ... because they're too tempting for me to pass up.
