Celebrating art and toys inspired by Japanese vintage toys, Toy Karma opened this past Saturday @ Rotofugi in Chicago. Eastern vinyl is on the rise driven largely by the interest in Kaiju. Curator Mark Nagata (Max Toy Company) brought together the very best in the genre. While we didn’t make the trip out, Kirkland Jue (Toybot Studios) did and he sent back these shots (Flickr set) of the evening. Looks like a truly awesome show — with so much goodness including the original art, candy colored customs, and of course the numerous exclusives (many revealed right here). Rotofugi has a few of the show exclusives still in stock including Mark Nagata’s cool Boy Karma. Stay tuned, a second round of Toy Karma may be in the works…
