The 46th Shizuoka Hobby Show opened to industry and members of the press yesterday, and while as usual the dealers participating were mostly from the more rarefied hobby industries, according to Hobby Channel’s coverage Kotobukiya was there as well.

This is doubly odd not only due to its all-ages source but to Kotobukiya’s lack of precedent in the cast off department… We’ll be keeping an eye on this one to see if it develops into a full-blown free love flower child PVC revolution of harmony, peace, understanding, and removable plastic clothing.
