Morikami Museum & Gardens are about to be invaded by these kaijū this coming Wednesday and Nagata and Professor James B. Levy, also a collector of these Japanese vinyl toys, will speak about them. The toys, first made in the 60s and 70s, were seen as throwaways but over the years have become collector’s items because of their design and artistry.
The cost is $10 or $7 for members. The Consulate General of Japan collaborated on this event as did Tate’s Comics, who are supplying prizes.
