Tamashii Nations – Plastic Models Collection 2014

Posted in Places, Stuff by tokyobling on May 14, 2014

Passing through Akihabara the other day I saw the TAMASHII NATIONS summer collection 2014 (魂の夏コレ2014) show of their new plastic model kits and toys. It is interesting how they have picked the game of plastic models up and moved it in the direction of fashion with different season collections and such. I have seen some of these models posted on different speciality blogs (like John Struan’s “Super Punch“) so I recognized most of these new designs. The winner must be the town wrecking Tower of the Sun, the famous statue by Taro Okamoto, very cool. The collection was also quite well presented, more so than usual (and I have seen dozens of this kind of exhibitions), I think this might be the beginning of a new trend.

As a kid I grew up building model aircraft, I wonder what my life would have been like if I had models like these to play with?

    Tower of the Sun is fantastic. I’d never heard of it before – it’s intriguing and the model of it is AMAZING!!!

      It is one of the most famous works of “modern art” in Japan. (^-^)
