    Surprised to see this guy hasn't even been mentioned here yet. His work is absolutely fantastic from packaging to omake to paint.

    His first toy, Jumora, was released in Sept 2017.




    Goronga was released in Sept 2018




    He has a new toy, Biozombie (a yokai liquor bottle), that hasn't been released yet:

    Don't care for the first two toys but that bottle is fantastic! Looks like it belongs on the bookshelf of some wizard or witch. I'd buy one if they release blanks for around $50 dollars. If it's over $100 I'll just appreciate the pictures.

    I think it's been almost a half year since he offered anything internationally (outside of festivals).

    There was a really nice painted clear version of the bottle sold at the recent Mandarake event. Hope to see that one offered up soon.

    Probably cheaper than $100. IIRC his other two toys were around $65 each

    Yep! This one:

    I enjoy all of their designs but the bottle is something I absolutely need to have

    These guys were already offered up for sale (and sold out) through VVC. Priced at 50 and 65 bux respectively.

    Edit: They might have just sold part of the run tho?

    Tree dudes are nuts. Still holding out for a mostly green colour to be my first.

    I've got two Jamora's and I'm hoping for my third. I really like the design and it's one of those toys that look different with every colorway.

    Jumora is my favorite but I’m loving the bottle.

    I find the entire line to be photogenic. Great toys.

    First release of the Bin Zombie



    I love the beer bottle clear color. Fits the sculpt super well.

    His packaging is also absolutely fantastic. I gotta say, I love a silk screened box more than a header card honestly, especially if it fits the theme of the toy as perfectly as this one

    Dig the box as well, but it's the fact that boxes are unusual that makes them special. I have few enough that I can put a good one on the shelf. If every maker did it I'd probably want to throw most of them out :lol:

    Oh, totally agree on that. Apostoys and Uzumark/Ilu Ilu have the best packaging in the game right now. Candidly a lot of header cards I get are low resolution digital prints

    I think it's Bin-zombie. 'Bin' means 'bottle' in Japanese.
