Fellow collectors and friends for decades, Jon from Jon’s classic Toys & Cycles and Josh from ToyboxDx and “Mint in Box”, bring fresh to market vintage Japanese robots and space toys from the 1950s to the 1990s.
With everything from tinplate battery op and wind ups to vintage Kaiju, Sofubi and a various range of Shogun Warrior Jumbo Machinders , there is a wide range for everyone interested in the genre. Japanese Batman, Godzilla, Ultraman, Atomic age pop cultural icons and Chogokin from the bubble era. This curation of toys represents collections from all over the country. Many items have not been on the market for decades.
Additionally Josh and a small team of film makers have been working quietly on a forthcoming feature documentary entitled “Mint in Box” which takes a deep dive at the stories and motivations of vintage Japanese toy collectors and dealers around the globe. This show will kick off the first public showing of the trailer at the booth. http://www.mintinboxmovie.com/
WHAT MOTIVATES THE COLLECTOR? How does the iconography of a specific genre of toys from childhood continue to maintain a hold on us well into our adulthood? What moves us? Is it sentiment, appreciation of a beautiful object, or simply the innate desire to acquire? With pop culture from Japan influencing the globe, the film takes a deeper look at the obsession with vintage robot/kaiju toy collecting as well as the people and stories behind it
