DHARMA BRIGADE JIZO-ANARCHOS ARE HERE

In the spirit of good karma and philanthropy, a series of 3 different color Jizo-Anarcho's will go on sale via the Dharma Brigade (IG and SHOP) starting with the light grey version. By the time this post goes live it looks like all the Dharma Brigade stock has sold so please grab one from the DHP webshop. Two more colors will follow soon after the light greys have sold out.

100% of the profits from these Jizo's will go toward providing scholarships for meditation retreats for those who cannot afford it. Do some good today and pick one up. As a friendly refresher here is the story of Jozo-Anarcho:

It has been told in ancient Japan that the souls of children who die prematurely are sent to the underworld as punishment for causing great sorrow to their parents. They reside at Sai no Kawara, the river of souls in purgatory, where they pray for Buddha's compassion while building small stone towers that signify the weight of their loss on their parents.

But underworld demons, answering to the command of the old hag Shozuka no Baba, surprise the children each day, scatter their stone towers and beat them mercilessly with iron clubs. It is the renegade Bodhisattva, Jizo-Anarcho who comes to their rescue by befriending the children and hiding them in the sleeves of his robe from the demons when they next arrive.


The evil attacks of Shozuka no Baba and her disciples come to an end when Jizo-Anarcho confronts them and easily parrys every single blow they try to cast upon him. Exhausted from their attacks, Shozuka no Baba and her minions fall to their knees in frustrated defeat. The compassion and friendship provided by Jizo-Anarcho liberates the souls of the children and they are set free as is the grief of their mourning parents. This toy immortalizes the final message sent by Jizo-Anarcho to Shozuka no Baba and her demons as he leaves the banks of Sai no Kawara. With punk rock compassion he turns over his shoulder as he walks away, raises his finger and says…”You are evil and miserable because you are captives of your own ill will. Fuck off and live! May all beings be free.”

HELLOPIKE x DHP = KAIJU SPRAY NOSTALGIA APALALA

Long time toynerdfriend, painter and fellow collector Hellopike has done it again. This time Apalala has received a more "traditional" Japanese makeover. Rooted in the early days of kaiju, almost no detailing was done via paintbrush on this run and all of the beauty has come to life with airbrush sprays. White vinyl covered in metallic red, gold, silver and black sprays make this colorway a real stunner. There is a 1/1 chase version that will be sold at random with the same color palette done on a GID vinyl base. Each toy comes with an clear red vinyl with gold glitter Alavaka dorje omake to make this release even more special. Available May 11 in the webshop. $130 each.
