Goto-san Paints UAMOU Toys
July 18, 2011 | Toys, vinyl | No Comments|
UAMOU-creator, Ayako Takagi visited with master Japanese toy painter Goto-san in the small shack behind his home in suburban Tokyo. Goto-San has been spraying vinyl toys for over 60 years. In his time, he has painted over a million toys.
Now there’s a range of “Summerly” UAMOUs in the mix. I think these photos are current, so maybe we’ll see the latest figures at the Global Figure Symposium booth #4937 at SDCC this week? There was an awesome Tower of UAMOU last year. Check out some of Takagi’s own photos of the Con experience here.
Here’s a clip of Goto-san at work from the Toy Punks documentary.
