Bjorn Lim's #TopTenToysof2018
Of all the invited and submitted "Top Ten Toys" for my annual features, there is a specific list of folks whose collections I am envious of
#10: Mini Wooper Looper : Autumn by Gary Ham and Pobber
Gary Ham had released quite a few Wooper Loopers over the years, but the toy stars didn't align, and I missed all of them - even this adorable Wooper Looper Mini. Thankfully, a fellow collector was willing to sell it, and it triggered my "BUY" button immediately.
#9: Waterfall Big Uamou by Studio Uamou
There's always something zen about waterfalls, and I just love how it's being painted on this big uamou.
#8: Queen Alice by Delos Nim
Delos' take on Alice is simply beautiful, and I just couldn't resist adding another one (this one even comes with a crown!) to my collection.
#7: Furue Interloper Master 5 by ThreeA
I thought I had rehabilitated myself to be threeA-free successfully. But just when I think I got out, they pulled me back with this Tomorrow King. Damn it!
#6: Star Jar - Death Vader by Pickled Circus
Pickled Circus' awesome line of jar heads continues with the Force. How can I say no to this Sith Lord in a jar that would make Kylo Ren scream with delight like a little school girl?
#5: Devilman by Mike Sutfin and Unbox Industries
Produced by Unbox Industries, this dope monster deserves to be on every toy lovers' collection.
#4: Hellboy by Fariboles Production
One word: Hellboy.
#3: Miss Mysterious 悪化 by Secret Base
I never had any luck with the ladies, and I missed this beauty too as I was too preoccupied with Rebel Inks. Fortunately, patience does pay off and I found it for re-sale. One collector's loss is always another collector's gain!
#2: Bubblegut by Chris Ryniak
Bubbleguts are notoriously difficult to score, and I have accepted that some things are just not meant to be. But once in a blue moon, lady luck smiles on me and voila! Bubblegut is mine!
#1: MIMI The Cannibal Girl (Candy Pink) by Tomenosuke and Utomaru
Even since Tomenosuke released the first few photos of MIMI The Cannibal Girl in 2017, I have been hooked. While I had already scored the crazy purple edition at STGCC 2018, this 3DRetro exclusive GID candy pink edition is a must-have! Anyway, two is always better than one, right?
