Tokyo Comic Con Wrapup – Tomenosuke and Friends Booth

 Tomenosuke_tcc-1

At the beginning of December, we had the good fortune to be invited press for the first-ever Tokyo Comic Con.  Now we’re following up our onsite blog and Instagram coverage with a look back at the show which is the first large-scale convention in Japan to focus on Hollywood and American pop culture.

While the draw may have been Stan Lee and big-budget blockbusters, toys were definitely part of the mix.  Tomenosuke’s large booth, flanked by Unbox Industries and ToyQube, was a major draw for collectors.  In addition to a large selection of mostly Western vinyl, Tomenosuke hosted a large number of independent toy artists including Mirock Toy, Tokyo Jesus, Eimi Takano, Shon, Banana Virus, Kto KtoKikkake Toy, Dot., and Yosomono Works. While he wasn’t in attendance, DrilOne created an incredible collection of customs including several Star Wars pieces for the event.

As you can see in the gallery (w/captions) after the jump, the work was excellent across the board from kawaii to urban to majorly monstrous.   In addition to the featured artists, Mr. Clement made a surprise visit to the booth to sign his large Astro Lapins!  Kudos to Tomenosuke’s Shinji Nakako for the impressive booth as well as his excellent work curating several exhibitions for the convention including the Blade Runner Workshop, Nippon SFX Kaiju Monster Encyclopedia, and Noriyoshi Ohrai – The Master of Illustration.
