BOUNTY HUNTER'S GOT THAT P.M.A.


Toypunks officially began filming in Japan on March 2nd! To kick things off, here's a video still from our interview with one of the original kings of toys and punk style, Hikaru Iwanaga. Hikaru and his partner Taka are the gentlemen behind the perennial Bounty Hunter toy and fashion brand which began nearly ten years ago. We filmed at the original Bounty Hunter shop in Harajuku, met Taka and their crew, and toypunks own Chris Nelson gave Hikaru his Bad Brains shirt from the '89 Quickness tour as a token of thanks. It was sugoi, which we learned in Japanese means pretty fucking awesome. Hikaru and Taka are both as cool as it gets and Hikaru gave an intense interview. He talked heavily about his youth in punk and toys, the unrelentless spirit of BXH, and the past, present, and future of the brand that started it all. Thank you Hikaru and Taka.
