[Kit News]: Macademi Wasshoi! - Falcé the Variablewand by Simakaze

Hi! Josh here. From the light novel and animation series that combines lots and lots of parodies of a combination between anime cliché and otaku culture, here comes a very unexpected, but none the less welcome, resin kit.

[Kit News]: Shining Force Feather - Alfin by Moguranoyama

Hi! Josh here. Another entry of the upcoming Treasure Festa with more works that I think deserve a little more attention. This time we pass into the realm of videogames to present a character from the already long-running "Shining-" series of games.

[Kit News]: K-On! - Hirasawa Ui by Yamanekotei

Hi! Josh here. The search for new and interesting works of those least well-known artist and subjects continues as the Treasure Festa is at a week minus one day to start. In this entry's spotlight, we have some prototype shots from one of most popular animation series of the time.

[Work-In-Progress]: 1/8 Xenosaga Ep. 1 KOS-MOS

Hi! Josh here, again. Ok, Ok, I kinda feel that I have not made too much of an effort to present what would be my actual personal works. Right now actually I have exactly one plastic model, one resin kit and one sculpture in progress. In the meanwhile that I can arrange some photos, I'll comment a little about the sculpture. In this WIP I intend to bring to life the character of KOS-MOS from the Xenosaga series of games.

[Kit News]: Digimon - Omegamon Full Action Kit by Yamataikoku no Oka

Hi! Josh here. The Treasure Festa officials have recently published a full list of the participating dealers to this upcoming event. Most of them have links to there blogs/websites so I'm right now looking for some good stuff to share with you all (and building up my wish list). So I think I'll make some "Kit News" posts in the next days before the event.


Hi! Josh here. Golden Week starts very soon, and so is one of the most recently established events in Scale Modeling here in Japan. The 3rd Treasure Festa (TF) in Ariake will take as usually in Tokyo Big Sight in the artificial island of Odaiba on May the 4th (Tuesday) from 10:00am to 5:00pm (expecting people making line from 6:00am or so).

I'll make the long trip from Nagaoka to Tokyo in order to present you the latest works in Garage Kits from the participating dealers. Nah, just kidding, I'll be there to get my hands on some nice new resin kits. But taking photos and reporting what I see is a nice consequence I guess. 

While I would like to previously inform you about the upcoming items for this event, it quiet seems that most dealers are just like me and don't do too much to keep our blogs all that updated. I'll try to find a few things, though. Nevertheless, I hope keep you informed of what I see in this TF, and maybe take some decent photos this time ( ': S). So please stay tuned for more very soon.

You can now add your comments in each Post! :D

Hi! Josh here. Just recently I noticed that, because I was using a custom template to create the weblog, no one could actually post comments due to something missing in the code or something  like that. Now, I'm no programing expert, but thanks to the guys that run blogger I was able to use one of their templates with comments input enabled. I'm still thinking on adding a few more personal touches here and there, but I hope you like the blogs new look.

Regarding comments, I would appreciate very much your feedback in the future. Also I would like to hear your ideas or know about similar works in scale modeling, figures and/or art in general, and maybe have friendly discussions about those topics. At the same time, I would like to request from you to conduct yourselves with respect and maturity in order to avoid trolls and/or spammers.  

So, looking forward for your comments. See you then.
