For decades, Osaka based collectible maker Kaiyodo has been churning out plastic statues and figurines. At a new “Figure World” exhibition, Kaiyodo marks its 30th anniversary of making figurines and is putting a whole slew of plastic on display in Shibuya.

At the exhibit, which nearing its end, there are Japanese and Western characters, with the common bond being that Kaiyodo produced out small figurines of them all. Beside the huge statues, one of the coolest things at the exhibit is the little window box dioramas. Have a look.

  • Thanks for heads up. And by heads up I mean post this on the last day of the exhibit so if it was the first time hearing about it it’d be too late to see it anyway. Sigh…
