Saturday marked the opening night for Rotofugi's newest event, Toy Karma 3. The biannual exhibit celebrates old-school Japanese toys and their style, with a mix of pieces on display ranging from homages to original designs. The one piece that really caught my eye in particular was Kazumitsu Akamatsu's Astaros. In case you can't tell, it's the fellow with the horse-like skull and the horns in the gallery. It was also a very, very expensive piece that I sadly couldn't afford and has found a new home already, but maybe one day, I'll be able to. *sigh*
Also in the gallery are custom pieces from Bad Applez Inc. (OsirisOrion and Nemo), Mark Nagata, Uamou, Pico Pico, Motorbot, Blobpus, Alex Wald, Hints and Spices, Nakayoshi, MonstreHero and Dream Rocket, as well as paintings from Bert Gatchalian. Many of these pieces have in fact already sold, but a few are still available. They'll all be on display until Oct. 2, so hop on down to Rotofugi if you can! Or if not, just stare longingly at our gallery.
Stay tuned a little bit later, because we have the second half of our coverage still to come!
