Since my earlier feature, the inaugural FUCKAJI (“Finest United Convention for Kaiju 2016”) event has opened in Hong Kong (@1F, Fortune Building, 150-158 Lockhart Road, WanChai, Hong Kong), and we have a schweet selection of images to share (most from @fuckajiu) and indicated / linked snaps - fueled by awesomeness and filled with collectibles on the “other end” of my collecting spectrum, which I’ve truthfully been keeping a safe distance from, because I will surely fall deep down the rabbit hole if I ever embarked on it’s Collecting Journey!
Kenny Wong’s “惡魔魚童” might edge me down this path tho, as he is a character / toy designer which appeals to my sensibilities, and his deft hands on this “genre” is an excusable gateway, methinks! (Above pic via @honoohoney FTW!).
What? You don’t need an “excuse” or reason to start toy collecting? Well, I do! hahahaha But heck, …I feel the urge, people…! And what about that WHITE colorway 惡魔魚童??? (right of image below.)
From Aaron at @uhohtoys are a variety of offerings, including his own ERRANTS and new CUT NOSE sofubi, goodies from Toy Art Gallery - hand-painted by himself, and a FUCKAIJU-colorway SPACE KNIGHT CONNELL by @kenth_toy_works (digging’ the retro box!). And while nothing has been said about items post-event, I’d recommend you stake out his Instagram @@uhohtoys and his online store!
Note that folks without tickets for the venue are allowed to come by but you’ll have to line-up and be given access after 5pm (after ticket holders). The event closes at 5:30PM, so stay sharp, people! CASH only, and Bring Your Own Bag!
FYI: The tickets are also numbered, with access to the venue allocated via timed sessions (indicated in the tix) - which provides a semblance of control of crowds, methinks. Great job!
No news on online availability of the pieces you see before you here though, so I’d recommend you stay close to @fuckaiju, or enquire direct “firstname.lastname@example.org” (Vintage Vinyl Club are the organisers of FUCKAIJU), or the indicated Instagram streams of individual creators, linked in the images featured below…
Another avenue for updates is the event’s Facebook-page, where prices are also indicated for select items! HAPPY HUNTING!
