Strange Toys I Have Known:
Sole of Godzilla’s Gang

March 4th, 2013 by Corey A. Edwards

Godzilla's Gang

A while back I brought Nokogirin and Godzilla’s Gang to your collective attention. What I didn’t mention is that Nokogirin was not the only of the series I’d managed to round up. Minus the eponymous member, I have managed to “collect them all!”™

Redking (giant size)

September 20th, 2012 by Corey A. Edwards



(click through for variations)

Ah, Redking, foe of Ultraman and your brother and sister monsters alike. Oh, Redking: you of the wobbly head and snarky disposition. Yes, Redking – so called because of your utter lack of red coloring (at least in all the initial incarnations). Hey Redking, where you goin’ with that tower in your hand?

It Takes Guts

August 9th, 2012 by Corey A. Edwards


CoreyA while back I purchased a great little book of Japanese monsters, shown in cross-section, in an attempt to shed a little light upon just what it is that makes them tick.

Great concept. Hours of fun.

The only problem is, the darned thing is all in Japanese! The nerve of these people! (they also made a mistake and printed the whole thing backwards – someone lost his job at the printing house that day, I can tell you)

Anyway, I took it upon myself to decipher those inscrutable little squigglies that littered the page and present to you here the few I manged to get through before passing out with exertion. Phew. My brain. (be sure to click on them for a closer view)

Geddum while they’re hawt.


March 13th, 2010 by Corey A. Edwards

So it turned out that the neighbor severed my cable while planting a tree.

He was nice enough to leave the cable ends protruding from the earth like giant, errant whiskers but otherwise said nothing.

He’s in construction, natch.


February 28th, 2010 by Corey A. Edwards


One of the last toys I ever bought, the Bandai, B-Club reissue of the Bullmark Aboras was long sought.

Something about this toy’s whimsical grin (at least on one side, the other side of his face is rather unfriendly, as if the sculptor was of two moods during the process … or just inept) has always pleased me to no end.

The toy has spent the last few months perched on a living room stereo speaker (the only figure toy in evidence in my home proper) in the hope that it would inspire me.

It has. I hope you like the results as much as I do – more of the same is on the way.

Bandai “Hanejiro”

This was a very simple set-up, as I’m sure you can imagine: A basic head-on with lots off diffuse light on my subject, then a simple two-part layer of the wall and a slight mask of the window to insert the toy.

So simple I almost felt like I was cheating.

For a final effect, I cut out a large section of the top window, which I applied to Hanejiro via a clipping mask, then brought said layer’s opacity down until the toy looked like it was behind the window.

A little bit of stenciling to include my sig and: voila.

I may like this shot best of the three I did this weekend even thought it was so danged easy: the unexpected, goofy charm of Hanejiro’s face up in the window … it perfectly embodies my attitude and aim when making these ridiculous pics …

Medicom RAH “Dada”

I’ve had this shot (hell, all this week’s outside shots) for a long time and have “published” a few of them before, sans toys of course.

End of the Tunnel

B-Club “Zarab Seijin”

I’m not quite sure how this happened. Something about a request for me to come up with another calendar of toy pics and then my realizing, for the first time since I put one together, that I didn’t have 12 new pictures.

Somehow … back at it.

November 24th, 2009 by Corey A. Edwards

B-Club “Daigoro”

The next thing you know I’m paging through old backgrounds and snapping pictures of a toy, my mind awhirl with projects, themes, and other forms of sheer pointlessness.

It’s this kind of stuff that “holds me back” and ensures that I’ll never “make it.”

But you know what? I don’t really care anymore. They’re just too fun to make.

Chiburu Chiburu Chiburu (no pepsi: coke)

October 25th, 2009 by Corey A. Edwards

In case it isn’t clear, I love me some Chibull.

Of all the toys I own, I think I’ve shot more images of the Chibull than any other.

The Necessary Year – Day 1: Butterflies and Vcolor

June 1st, 2008 by Corey A. Edwards


(this post is part of an aborted 1 year experiment in material abstinence I called The Necessary Year)


I’m feeling optimistic but also a bit nervous. Thinking about doing something is one thing, committing to it publicly is another. This reminds me of when I told my daughter I would quit smoking, right then: well, you’re committed now! Here’s to hoping this goes off as smoothly as that did.

As a kind of “last supper” I walked down the hill last night and picked up a bottle of Sheaf stout and some Toll House ice cream sandwiches. I drank the beer with supper (so good and creamy!) but became so embroiled in getting this blog up that I forgot about dessert! I guess I can save them for later – unless my daughter beats me to them.
