Toy Tokyo x Cronic x Cure x Mad Barbarian @ SDCC 2008

I gotta say I was pretty impressed with Toy Tokyo this year. They had some of the best toy releases at SDCC this year and my wallet can prove it. Lev above is kicking it with Mad Barbarian who had their "Miami Vice" release at the show.

Cronic had an impressive run of figures both painted and unpainted at Toy Tokyo. I believe that if you purchased the entire set, it would cost you close to $1000.

I think the big story for us (aside from Toki Doki Geisha) was the arrival of Yumi from Secret Base and Satoshi from Cure Toys. The Pink Oni Boogieman was RED HOT and on every collector's want list it seemed. We were even approached by someone that offered $300 cash for our spot in the line. After purchasing the figure itself, they would have paid $425 for this toy!! Madness!! All I know is that this toy kicked ass and Yumi and Satoshi were rad to meet!
