Roger and Issac traveled up to interview and film me over 5+ hours a few weeks back and I think you will agree the video is awesome ! If you like it, please Like and Subscribe to Roger’s channel. And, I highly recommend checking out his other profiles … I like learning about other collectors and artists .. and to be honest I find the ones that I most like are the smaller collections 😉
I hope you guys enjoy this glimpse into my toy room and collecting journey !
and in 2 weeks we will be in Anaheim, Max Toy Company Booth 233, next to Sunguts, Monster Patrol and Marusan at Dcon ( designer con 2023) It will be the last year in California as the con is moving to Las Vegas. Hope to see you guys at the last one in Cali !

First, just got back from Tokyo after over 3 years and in brief had an absolute wonderful time ! Have things changed ? Yes, they have … for one, 99.9% of the people wear a mask everywhere, so it was a struggle to wear a mask basically all day (for me !). As an observation even way out in the middle of now where and outside, with a single guy across the street, he kept his mask on 😉 Anyways, not putting down anyone, just a mindset shift compared to here. My main reason to go was to catch up in person with toy friends and attend Winter Wonderfest. I’ll write more about that later after my jet lag passes .. it’s true the older you get the worse the adjustment is coming home (!) Toy shopping wise made it to a few places, but found a lack of Bullmark/Marusan figures .. gone were the days of 3-4+ rows deep of them and at least 5-6+ full cases … now they were single file/row, spread out and barely a few cases for vintage or a mix of vintage with newer Medicom stuff. I can only speculate the vintage stuff is mostly online now, which makes total sense since foreign collectors have not really returned (yet). Oh, I have to say, I’d say I’m an advanced collector and the shelves had vinyls, but lots of newer stuff, that I had zero interest in 😉
