2021 DHARMA BRIGADE JIZO-ANARCHO ARE COMING

Continuing with the tradition of passing on some good karma we will be dropping the first batch of 2021 DB Jizos soon. $15 each with 100% of the proceeds going toward scholarships for teens at Inward Bound Mindfulness Education (IBME) retreats. Dennis (shirahamatoy) pulled these for FREE so HUGE hugs and high-fives to him. Black, Milk Chocolate and Dark Chocolate colorways...BOOM!



Japanese legend has stated 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.”

 

UPDATE: THANK YOU for a super fast sell out and all the support for IBME!

SPRING BLING JIZO-ANARCHO

Spring has sprung with these beauties. Featuring the last of the vinyl from the triple pour "red citrus" release from DCON 2019. Clear vinyl with gold glitter make up the outer pour while yellow and pink vinyl marble together for the inner pour. The yellow vinyl glows yellow and the pink vinyl glows purple. Shades of purple, pastel pink, metallic purple, green, red and yellow paint make these really shine. Half the run was painted with pink robes and the other half are yellow.

A SHINY NEW YEAR IS COMING IN 2021

A bunch of new toy releases will hit the webshop on New Year's Day. Things that sparkle, things that glow and an all new golden general to lead his sentai into battle!

ADAMD (酔 獣) "SHINY NEW YEAR" 2021

A message from AdamD..."2020 can suck it! Fuck that year!" But that sharp, snark remark was followed by some glowing optimism. "2021 is going to be a golden year! I promise to rise from the ash of 2020 and return to the stage to stomp on frowns, pound many a brew and mosh!" So fear not...your hero has returned. To celebrate this shiny new year of metal this AdamD figure has been cast in GID vinyl embedded with gold glitter. Bright and shiny gold paint spray highlight his features to illuminate his rally cry. $30...made in Japan, painted in the USA. Not intended for children under 14 years old.



"SHINY BLUE YEAR" JIZO-ANARCHO

It's twins for the blue year (but they aren't identical). Cast in either electric blue GID vinyl infused with glitter or clear vinyl with blue and silver glitter, these monks of punk have been painted up with hits of various shades of opaque blue, white, silver and metallic blue paints. The devil is in the details and each one has been finished off with a neon dot (green, pink, orange and yellow) on the front of their robes. Sold at random so you won't know what color dot you get until you receive it. Made in Japan...painted in the USA. Not intended for children under 14 years old. $30 each.


"SHINY BLUE YEAR" APALALA(s)

Wait...more twins? Yep, and once again these aren't identical. The core of each figure (head, torso and tail) is either electric blue GID vinyl infused with glitter OR clear vinyl infused with blue/silver glitter while the arms/legs are the other color vinyl making these blue mash up monster twins. Each figure has been painted the same way over top the mixed vinyl bodies with hits of greens, blues, pink, red, silver, and other metallic paints. Green twine wraps on the hands finish them off. Direct sunlight for 10 minutes or so charges up the GID parts to glow for hours! $100 each...made in Japan...painted in the USA. Not intended for children under 14 years old.

 October 31st hit the webshop and grab some toys!

ADAMD (酔 獣) "HALLOWEEN VOMIT" 2020

The one and only "drunk animal - beer monster" finally makes his debut. It looks like our hero mixed a bit too much candy and beer in preparation for his big day, resulting in a bit of a mess. Cast in green GID (glow in the dark) with gold glitter marbled with bubblegum pink vinyl these are definitely sickly sweet. LIMIT 1 PER CUSTOMER. ANY ORDERS FOR MORE THAN 1 WILL BE CANCELED. $30 each...made in Japan. Not intended for children under 14 years old.




"MONSTER MASH" HALLOWEEN JIZO-ANARCHO

I found a small batch of these minty green vinyl with green glitter blanks buried in a box. They have been brought back to life with green, white, blue and brown paint just in time for Halloween. $30 each...made in Japan...painted in the USA. Not intended for children under 14 years old.




BLUE GID APALALA

Cast in electric blue vinyl infused with glitter, these monsters have been painted up with hits of orange, navy, grey/blue, silver, metallic blue, metallic green, tan and white paints. Get one of these in direct sunlight for 10 minutes or so, then watch it glow for hours! $100 each...made in Japan...painted in the USA. Not intended for children under 14 years old. *NOTE: As a SPECIAL BONUS for you unpainted fans, there will 2 blanks with orange glass eyes also available. These are sure to go fast.
