So, I have been racking my brain as to how I would make this initial announcement and my tip-toeing into the unpredictable and mind jarring world of toy production. And, the only conclusion I came up with was too simply yank the bandage and let the chips fall where they may. So here goes; Kaiju BBQ Toys Presents Figure Name: Shishi Artist: Miles Nielsen (Munktiki / Yakimon) First Release: Gold Lame w/ Silver, Black & Red Paint Exclusive: Five Points Festival Size: 10" x 10" x 6" Articulation: 7 Points (Heads, Arms, Wrists & Tail) Production: China Shishi comes from Miles' Yakimon ceramic line. Influenced by vintage Japanese toys and culture. I don't think Miles needs much of an introduction here on the boards, as he is already well respected. Known for his creativity, quality and talent. If you aren't familiar with Miles, check out his websites Yakimon and Munktiki. It's well worth your time. Miles and I have been discussing working together for literally years. I think as far back as the group show at TAG on Melrose. Yikes! Kaiju BBQ... came up with the name after an initial LA based collector get together. Thought after that initial meet up that another was in order, but maybe something even more casual, like that of a backyard bbq and small toy swap. It never happened, but the name stuck with me. The ultimate goal / mission is to work with talent artists (as I am not one of them) and produce high quality toys / sofubi, limited runs, at old school affordable prices. Pretty simple. Feel free to follow Kaiju BBQ on IG @kaiju_bbq I'm interested in the boards feedback. I wouldn't post it here if I didn't. I don't expect everyone to be on board with it, but that's okay. Thanks for the opportunity. PS - Miles is having a shindig in his hometown of Astoria, OR. It's only July 13th. More info is available on his IG accounts and probably via his websites. He should also have a small handful of the Shishi figures on hand for those of you who are interested in checking them out.
