The Shinjuku Battle Royal event at Kaiju Blue that ran for a full month between Ocotber and November was a big success - with Mori doing special instore events not once, not twice but 3 times which is a new record for a Kaiju Blue event by any artist. You can read a re-cap of what went down at the first one on this post Sunday Busy Sunday as well as the first of four instore events featuring the Katsushika Nights Radio Crew.
You may have also read about the second drop - The Halloween drop that featured the instant classic Mutant Dokurocks, Old Scholl Evils and Chaos, and the rarely seen Monster Mash-up that is Pop-oas Superman (good dudes all for Halloween I would say) at Squdblastrs excellent blog (what up Aaron!!)
The third and final drop took place on the 14th of Nov - and while I was not privy to make it - our man over Kadomium Tank stepped and got some awesome photos. More old school goodness to make your teeth hurt. Blasts right outta 2007. Kad's got tons more pics to goggle over and the hardcore can google his entry.
But no rest for the vinyl as the focus shifted to Parco for a group show of the whos who in the world of vinyl character goods. The theme of the show being LUCKY ITEMS and along with Real x Head, Pop Soda, Uamou, Mirock and Skulltoys - there were entries form Devilrobots, T9G, CHINO, MOGraphixx and more more more. Kadomium once again shows off his ability phase shift and be every where at once and has the photos to prove it on his fine blog. This short but sweet star-studded extravaganza finished on November 30.

Sasa released the 田 (DA as in HANDA) version of her fortune cat baby series. Which is the second character in her name - the first release was the SA. By my reckoning there will be 2 more. Must not miss.
Of course on top of all these shinanegains there wihave been outstanding releases at the store - this wave of ChaosMan Next - is funky and fresh- reported for duty yesterday. Shout at to Mr. Andy at Kaiju Korner for this awesome pic!
The mystical phase-shifting Mr. Kadmomium tank has a great set of pic up from one of his recent away team mission in which he beamed down to Aoto to collect the scientific evidence. You can see his report over here - well worth a quick debrief.
