Monchhichi

santastic-monchhichi-toy

Santa Inoue’s Santasistc! is the focus of an upcoming with Monchhichi. Largely unknown outside of Asia, the Monchhichi franchise has been wildly popular as collectibles, achieving great success thanks to a number of difference releases and styles over the years that often mimic real-life counterparts. The Santastic! version includes some clear references to Santa’s clothing label and Tokyo Tribe3’s Minato. Available starting May 2nd. Check Santa.co.jp for more info.Hypebeast

I honestly can’t tell if these little collectibles are adorable or creepy or both. They look like multiracial puppies with identity crises. I can’t help but be bizarrely intrigued. What’s good with the pseudo-cop in the background? Why is there a monkey with a machete embroidered on his jacket? Any guesses?
