GRODY SHOGUN: First Release, Saturday July 2nd

grodyshogunfirstrelease 400x533

Lulubell is proud to present the first original figure releases from Grody Shogun, クモの巣を食べる妖怪 グランプス (Granpusu the web eater). His name is Ojisan and he is a vain little Yokai (Japanese folk spirit). He's also kinda lazy, so he made a Karakuri (edo era self-automated robots) in his own image. Actually, Ojisan spends more time setting up his Karakuri then if he went out a collected webs himself.

Ojisan is made to scale, approx 10cm. (3.5"), the actual size of an average Ojisan you'd find in any home. Both have three points of articulation and stand on their own, for the most part. :)

Ojisan & his Karakuri go up for pre-sale this Saturday at Noon Pacific at They are cast in milky white vinyl & covered in amazing Technicolor spray goodness from head to toe! Sold individually for $23 each.

Interesting new venture for our crazy man Luke Rook in Japan. I like the size. At 3.5" tall, these guys will fit nicely on the desk. I think I like the blocky shape of the Karakuri better, but like the paint application of Ojisan. The directional spray of purple on the front especially. $23 is a decent price for a mini. Wouldn't mind this dude in painted clear vinyl.
