You asked about my favorite toy and I am going to have to go back in time a bit here – Robo Hacchan “Robot 8” (Toei Company)- Such great memories – I wish I still had him… My Dad introduced me to 60s-80s Japanese toys – This was one of my favorites in my collection – I loved the weight of it. He was awesome – and if another kid pissed me off – I could throw it at him… left a dent.

robot8chan_2Robo Hacchan (1981) like many other cool Japanese television shows – Kurekure Takora, Robocon, etc. had the greatest character designs – Very simple, elegant and powerful – huge influences for me as a designer later in life. This would be my favorite toy… If yer askin’ about ‘current’ favorite toys – I am really diggin’ (Jamungo) Ferg’s Project Squadt! line – I really love his sense of design! and as far as my current contribution – I am really having fun with Super 7’s MONSTER FAMILY kaiju line (that Kathie Olivas and I collaborated on)… Big Sal.
