ISSAC-SAYS: "RED A" is a classic brand which produces quality plastic ware for many years. This collaboration shows the spirit of "Made in Hong Kong".

TOYSREVIL: Can you share with us, who you are and what you do?

@isaac_t88: I'm a marketer, a toy collector, a Hong-Konger.

TOYSREVIL: How long have you been buying (collectible) toys?

@isaac_t88: I have collected Soul of Chogokin for around 10years, and started to collect designer toys since 2015.

TOYSREVIL: Where do you normally purchase your toys? Online? Offline from Stores? Events? Which do you prefer? And why?

@isaac_t88: I prefer to purchase toys from events and have a chance to meet artists.

ISSAC-SAYS: Rustic, classic, hand-painted. Back to the old days... this is an art piece.

TOYSREVIL: Do you have “toy-grails”? And did you manage to score a “toy-grail” this year (2019)?

@isaac_t88: I have a hunting list for To-Fu Oyako. In 2019, I finished one of my collections of To-Fu Oyako which are 2" figures.

TOYSREVIL: Any particular focus or toy-aims this year (2020)? Starting any new line?

@isaac_t88: At the end of 2019, I utilise my skills (marketing) to organise an event for Jim Dreams (one of my favourite artist) in a shopping mall. I want to explore more special events for artists or toy designers in 2020. This is my "new line" to my collection.

ISSAC-SAYS: There had been many collaborations with to-fu in 2019, but as a fan of Makalele and a crazy fan of To-Fu Oyako, I had to select this one to be in my top 10 list :)

#2: Fast Food-Themed Series by Jim Dreams
ISSAC-SAYS: This is a collection that took over 2 years (From 2017 - 2019) to complete, where finally, I have made a complete a set of this series. Every character is the legend of 80's characters, all of whom are sleeping ... Let's find the beautiful old days in the dream.

@isaac_t88: Many toy buddies around me :) - and we lure each other to spend everyday lol

TOYSREVIL: Where can people go to see your collection?
