    Randomly, I was looking at the box of one of Marmit's cryptid finger-puppet sets (one of the Hyper Hobby exclusives) and noticed that it credits Kokomahi. Kokomahi is or is part of Akaikutsu Club. Among other things, they collaborated with Dream Rocket on the mid-size Mothman figure that came out in 2010. The style of the Marmit finger-puppets definitely matches some of the other Akaikutsu releases. Interesting to see how far back they go.

    Post from Waterbear copied below in the spoiler tags, in case you are not familiar with the Marmit finger-puppets.

    Probably worth mentioning here:

    Marmit/SHB/Karzworks (with a touch of RAMPAGE) Exhibition coming up in May at Clutter Gallery.

    Not sure what all will be on display - but Akamatsu will be there for sure.

    For whatever reason, Yametaranese is one of those monsters that has a special place in my heart. Just a weird, goofy, scary and magical being that calls to mind the craziness that fascinated me as a kid. The blue Marmit remains one of my favorite toys, and I went nuts when I found this clear version.

    Great photos. I think that one came from the year Marmit produced a series of clear w/ glitter vinyls; quite a nice effect.

    Anyone know what's up with all of the Marmit paint samples that have been turning up on Mandarake over the past several months?

    I was wondering the same thing! A group of Fukkukudos just popped up like meercats, and were immediately adopted. Some really nice colors too.
