    A behind the scenes glimpse at Kotobukiya.

    Our Japanese Facebook (and Youtube) page just put up a video that serves as a sort of company introduction. While it doesn't contain any major announcements or news in terms of statues, I thought some of you might be interested in seeing it. You do get some glimpses of the main office and the sculptors at work. I'm even in the background in a couple of shots (but I'm not telling you which one I am).

    The Japanese bits are subtitled in English.

    Video embedding appears to be disabled, so link it is:

    Great video. Was that your desk with all the R2 units? You can go ahead and ship those to me.

    Not my desk with the R2s, sorry (though I do have an R2-A6, an earlier version of R2-Q5 with slightly different paint from the final, and an unpainted mold test on my desk).

    A couple of videos talking about the Kotobukiya Akihabara-kan flagship store have been posted, again if anyone is interested. Part 1 walks through the 5 floors of the store, Part 2 interviews a couple members of the store staff. Both parts are listed at:

    Had a look at this on Facebook, pity we don't have a store like that here in the UK.

    Could you post a pic of the earlier R2-Q5? I'd love to see how he is different.

    It's only a very small difference in a couple of the brown markings (one in particular). The final release is the correct version.
