Yo-san will be attending Wonderfest February 2nd, 2020 at the Max Toy table 7-04-09. These Toho exclusives can not be sold outside of this Japan event. No sales to USA or elsewhere. We can not get the license for the USA, so for the time being we can not offer them for sale outside of Japan. Sorry about that ;-( There’s more toys for sale at this event, so follow Yo via Instagram: @quackmaxx

My exhibit, “Kaiju vs Heroes”, has been extended thru July 7th, 2019 at the Japanese American National Museum !!!
From the museums Press release: Kaiju vs Heroes: Mark Nagata’s Journey through the World of Japanese Toys, which features hundreds of contemporary and vintage Japanese vinyl toys, has been extended on view at the Japanese American National Museum through July 7, 2019. The exhibition is included in regular admission to the museum. In conjunction with the exhibition’s extension, the museum will host a day-long separately ticketed Kaiju-Con on June 15, 2019.
Super honored by the awesome reception this exhibit has received from both Kaiju fans and non Kaiju fans ! More importantly, the exhibit has allowed me the chance to reflect upon my Japanese American heritage and connect with many diverse people who were not aware of the internment of Japanese Americans during World War 2. I’m grateful that by extending the exhibit thru July 7th, 2019, many more will not only see a super fun exhibit but also learn more about the internment and it’s affects on Japanese Americans. And, yes, there will be a Kaiju Con … check out their link for more info !!
