The Spirit who Restores by Bob Conge aka Plaseebo
He is the collective spirit of the people that will restore Japan from the damage suffered in the Tsunami. The base is covered with the debris of crushed cars and broken homes. The base also contains a color-changing LED unit that shines light up through the debris to illuminate the flag and figure when displayed in a darkened room.
I'm blown away by Bob Conge's custom DEBRIS JAPAN. Look closely at the base and you can see the broken homes and cars from the Tsunami. Details like the LED that shines light into the Japanese flag are fantastic. Beautiful piece.

ugh.. i'm conflicted about this new Eric So x Adidas Original Edison Chen figure. I'm a fan of Eric So and I rock the Adidas, but I think figures of fashion guys are weird. I like the details on the figure like the bracelet. The resemblance is kind of creepy, but the best part is the little figure underneath the bleached hair.
