Amazing Handmade Toys by Take-G


Check out these amazing wooden robot sculptures by artist Takeji Nakagawa...

Unfortunately for us he only produces these one by one for shows, and thus there isn't a way to custom order one for your own collection. They are so endearing, its a shame its so hard to get your hands on one!

...I suppose if they WERE mass-produced they wouldn't have nearly as much charm, hmm?

Wow adorable figures! Its pretty cool that they're wooden. How hard is it to purchase them? I'm sure they must cost a bomb.

They are super adorable! He says on his website that they can range from $50-80 for a small one, all the way up to $6000 for one of the really large, intricate pieces.

What surprises me most is how little he sells the small ones for... pretty affordable considering all the work that goes into them.

$50-$80? That's a good price for such detailed handwork, you should get a few and start collecting them heheh.
