Part two of our interview series, we have the charismatic Junichi Yajima from Dream Rocket. Such a nice guy. Great sense of humor. A flair for the dramatic as a result of his acting background. Yajima-san belongs in an Ultraman movie. He loves the OG Kaiju and it shows in his toys. Thanks again to Mark Nagata for arranging, Mark Miyake for the awesome translation and Daniel Akum6n for some of the questions.

After developing a strong background in several different careers, Yajima-san established his own toy company, called “DREAM ROCKET”. He has been producing fabulous Kaiju figures and has a very loyal following in Japan and around the world. Yajima-sans work has appeared and sold in numerous Phillips De Pury auctions in New York and London. Yajima-san said " I am having fun making Kaiju toys but I truly love Kaiju more than making figures out of them".
