Tmashii Nations, Bandai’s collectible toy brand, presents an innovative and unique robot in collaboration with Disney’s most celebrated character: Mickey Mouse.
Chogokin Chogattai King Robot Mickey & Friends are 7 individual character figures that can be transformed and combined to form a one giant robot. The team members are: Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Pluto, and Steamboat Willie.
When you look close, you can see intricate details they put in making them.
For example, inside mecha Mickey’s eyes you can actually see a small Mickey Mouse piloting the robot… sweet!
They even made a really cool promotional video to go with it. It’s worth watching just for the transformation sequence.
Chogokin King Robot Mickey & Friends will start selling tomorrow (March 30th), but you can start pre-ordering from our Rinkya Store now!

Art of War usually makes a small lot of statues for limited period of time. This one is from about five years ago, featuring a scene from Berserk episode 218. Only 300 of them were made at the time, and this is one of them in a completely mint, unused condition, with a serial number metal plate included. The seller is a company called Time Labo specialized in handling used figures and toys, and they decided to have this item auctioned on their YJ shop.
From Art of War official site, we can see what it looks like when the statue is set up.
I love all the amazing statues but that Zodd smartphone stand (last picture)… that is kind of hilarious but cool! Pre-orders are starting already and will stop taking them at the end of this month, hurry if you want them! You can always ask for request order at our Rinkya Stores.
Yumeneko is an artist who is fascinated with building miniature models, sets, dollhouses, and everything that is small. Her creations are full of beautiful details and elegant design with use for dolls’ photoshoot and decoration in mind.
Her latest 1/6-scale dollhouse creation “Hidden Spot & Underground Cafe” is up for sale on Yahoo Japan Auction right now.
With dolls in the house… (Dolls belong to the seller, not for sale)
You can imagine a kind of seclusive little cute spot where only customers who already know the place would go to, enjoying soothing tranquility away from noises from a bustling city. This dollhouse actually consists of two-floors. One is supposed to be on the ground level and the other is an underground room (but it’s detachable so you can arrange them in any ways). The ground room has large windows and pretty gardens, and the underground room comes with nice dim lighting from LED lamps on the ceiling. You can stack the two rooms on top of each other, display them separately side-by-side, or connect them together by staircase directly or in L-shape.
Layout ideas suggested by the seller:
This dollhouse is compatible with any dolls of 1/6 scale, including Momoko Doll (as shown in photos), Blyth, Pullip, Barbie, etc. Pre-furbished with tables, chairs, and framed artwork on the wall as in the photos, but decorative items used by dolls (magazine, wine bottle, food) are not included in the set. If you already have furniture and decorations of your choice, you can arrange them and open your own cozy little cafe for your dolls! Bid on Hand-made 1/6 scale Doll House Hidden Underground Cafe by Yumeneko on Yahoo Japan Auction.
Acclaimed Vocaloid producer livetune (also known as “kz” who composed Packaged and Tell your world) released his latest album “Re:Dial” on March 20th. On youtube, there’s a music video featuring one of the songs recorded in the album Redial.This video is created and directed by the world-reknowned artist Takashi Murakami and his team of talented artists, Kaikai Kiki’s Studio Poncotan Animation Studio.
Team up of Takashi Murakami and livetune is already quite a dream collaboration, but Murakami is not the only one who contributed to the making of Redial music video. With character design by talented arnimator/artist mebae (who also designed album cover) and choreography by Ken Maeda (who directed ending theme dance sequences for anime Pretty Cure series), no doubt the video turned out amazing with a perfect balance of cool and cute!
Check it out for yourself!
Murakami will also premier his first feature film he ever directed, Mememenokurage (EN: Jellyfish Eyes) on April 26th (English site). Livetune’s piece “Last Night, Good Night (Re:Dialed)” featuring Hatsune Miku is used for the film’s theme song as well. It’d be interesting to see how the two creators continue to work together in the future.
Cherry blossoms bloom, and hanami seasons have already started in several areas of Japan!
Bento artists can show off their bento creativity and talents to entertain their friends and family while appreciating the beauty of cherry blossoms.
The photo shown above is bentos created by Mihhon and her friend Ikkun Mama for hanami purpose. Pokemon, Kiironotori from Rilakkuma, Trunks from Dragon Ball, and Hello Kitty… I think it’s cool that they each made one bento appealing to girls and the other bento to boys (I don’t mean to be sexist by the way, of course both girls and boys can eat and like whichever bentos they want!).
I hope you get to see some pretty flowers too as spring visits your town!

You may not have a room for actual-size Gundam in your house, but what if it was “human-size” model?
HY2M (Hyper Hybrid Model) 1/12 scale Gundam was originally released by Bandai in 2006 for a limited number. This model comes in 3 boxes (originally, could be shipped in more boxes for this auction), with 260 pieces. When completed and standing, it reaches 1.5 meter (5 foot) tall and weighs 35kg (77 lb). Posable joints allow you to set Gundam up in different poses, and what makes it even cooler is that it’s pre-recorded with a bunch of SE from the original show!
Details of this product (according to Bandai’s specification):
– 260 parts total to complete the model. They are all pre-painted, so you don’t need to do a painting job youself. However, this particular auction item has been modified with additional shading and panel line enhancement with black lines to make it look even more realistic. Compare the original (left) and auctioned item (right) for panel line enhancement.
– No super glue or adhesive necessary. Only bolts and nuts are used for building the model (just like real Gundam would be!)
– The materials used for HY2M 1/12 Gundam is common materials used for other plastic models from Bandai. Therefore, if you have experience modifying Gundam models before, you can basically apply the same techniques and mod it however you want.
– Shoulder joints can be locked into one angle to allow more flexibility and rigidity when posing the model. Elbows, wrists, fingers, forearms, neck, waist, are all movable and posable.
– It comes with a remote control to activate sound effects. There are 15 types of SE, including gatling guns, start-up sound, etc. And also it controls illumination of eyes, gatling guns, etc.
– Comes with a building manual. Just follow the instructions (and patience, it is estimated to take 4 hours of building work) and you’ll have a human-size Gundam!
Beam Rifle, Beam Saber, and Gundam Shield

This is an attraction ride for children that you can get inside Doraemon and control Doraemon (in a rotating movement) while playing a fun interactive game on the screen, voiced by original Doraemon seiyuu Oyama Nobuyo. Usually, you have to grab a card that comes out to start the game, but for this particular item, the automatic card vendor is not working. So you have to start it manually by taking the card by hand, but otherwise everything else is functioning fine.
Dimension: 200cm x 140cm x 140cm.
It comes with 100 cards for starting the games.
This is so cool! I want have it in my yard, it’d be so much fun inviting friends for a ride! 😀
This Doraemon ride takes you to an adventure through time. Whoohoo!
You can either choose “past” or “present” as destinations at the beginning, and that affects the gameplay on the screen. Its voice tape is not working, so unfortunately it can’t talk to you. But you can still play with it.
Dimension: 125cm x 78 cm x 140cm.
The classic, best of the best creation from Dior Homme during the reign of celebrated Hedi Slimane, the 05SS Three Wolves Tuxedo Jacket is up for auction now. On the back is a beautiful embroidery of three wolves inspired from mythical figure, Cerberus. It is a rare, highly collectible item desired by many Dior Homme fans. It has a relatively low starting price for a reason, but it could be a unique, special choice for you.
What makes this jacket special is not only because it’s Dior Homme Three Wolves, but it has actually been custom resized to fit a smaller frame of body. Originally size 46, the jacket was too big for the seller to wear, so it was modified to be much tighter around the shoulders. Thus, the current measuring is:
36cm shoulder width
13 cm arms-length
10cm around cuffs
Even though this is a men’s brand, It could actually fit perfectly for a woman. Of course, it is an ideal jacket for a man with a more slim body type. This is an used item, but the jacket has been kept in a near-mint condition, and it’s been only worn a few times. If you have the a body type that often finds difficulty getting the right size straight from the retail, or if you like to own a custom-fitted Dior Homme jacket, this could possibly be an ideal item for you. Its tight fit will give you a nice, sexy silhouette and makes you special and “different” from everyone.
Only a couple of days left, give it some thoughts and bid soon if you want. Start bidding now! (*The seller will charge extra 5,000 JPY to have the jacket cleaned by professional cleaner after purchased)
