A pic from a meet-up in Tokyo with the mighty Yo Miyamoto. Yo helps many, many small-batch toy makers and artists in Tokyo and the U.S. and is one of the hardest-working dudes in the kaiju world. He's also fluent in English and has played a massive role in translating Volume 2. We've heard Lamour Supreme call him the "toy whisperer," and we're stoked to call him an honorary Toypunk. Yo rules.

We also brought with us the raw sculpture of Toypunks mascot, based on Mike Giant's illustration, to show Yo. Here's a pic of the parts, neatly placed inside of a foam-padded hardcase!
