Ramune is a traditional Japnese lemon soda drink, that comes in a distinctive blue green bottle. Ramune candy which has been popular with kids for a long time are small lemon-y sour (think sweet tarts) candies in a plastic replica of the traditional ramune bottle. I think this is the inspiration for the real x Headcolorways being released this weekend.

The Annual Medicom show is scheduled for the end of June at Parco Museum in Shibuya. This is always a kick-ass show - a massive dump of alot of the upcoming Medicom projects for the next year. The opening party is always a gala event with lots of yummy giveaways. Someday I may get to go.

Damn there is some way wacky stuff going on at this show being put on by Cluttermag in London. I wish it would come to Japan but who knows. Apparently all the figs are being auctioned off. Unfortunately the main website for this project is a bit of an overzealus Flash Frenzy with a BBS stuck in for good measure. If you really want really want to check out the goods go to the auction registration page, sign up and you will be presented with a simple and sane list of links that leads to each artists work.
Touma has certainly cranked out an army of the these figs. Initially based on the old Naugahyde character and done as a tie-up with Tokyo Mid-Century Zakka-ya STITCH. There are 3 figs in the set (one smaller fig not pictured) which will be (relatively) reasonably priced at 8000yen
