online exclusives

after the successful koibito release party at munky king last month, i received many e-mails from over the sea/ out of the state fans. many of them expressed their excitement about koibito. and others expressed their sadness for missing the party and all the goodies which were available at the event....
personally i understand their situation very well. there have been many cases that i wished i could of been back at home in japan. i wasn't be able to attend to some of these events in the past due to financial reasons and other circumstances, including two of my brothers weddings and many of the holidays........   
so i made a decision to create online exclusive koibitos for those who couldn't make it to the official release party.  
these four colours represent the four elements of the nature: earth, fire, wind, and water.
here are some of the images:


also there  will be a very small run of "under the stars" gocco prints.
we are still working on the timing and the detail about this exclusive online release....
i will let you know as we figure it out.

I hope to buy one, i love the red.

But i think the all fish are finish in ebay because the flipper will win money with this toy like in us.

I hope non-flippers eventually get ahold of these. Every one of these pieces speaks volumes to the beauty they display.

Wow, thank you so much for keeping us small timers in mind! I'm on the east coast, and was one of several die-hards that stayed up till 4:00AM trying to score a gooco print and clear/smoke Koibito with no luck! Munky King was great, though, and I did end up- buying a gold leaf Kizuna print from their secret stash of two. Can't wait for the chance to buy these, and maybe even an Under the Stars gocco? Man, I hope so! I'm saving now- Thanks again, and i'm looking forward to all that you have in store for us this year and in the future---Jason /its420brother
