Tikumo: Super Tiki Sumo Sofubi from Gerald Okamura


     I've had a few nicknames in my life, but none of them have ever been as cool as  "Man of Many Weapons."  In fact not many of them are fit to print, but if I were to come up with some that are relevant to my life they would probably be along the lines of:

Man of Many Cats

Man Who Burns Easily in the Sun

Man of Gastrointestinal Distress 

Man who is Leary of Many Foods

   Based on this list, I am not nearly the badass that Gerald Okamura is. While I may be more suited to a life of observational humor and feline restroom maintenance, one thing Gerald and I have in common is our love of toys. And he loves them so much he decided to start making his own.  This Friday will mark the debut release of his new Japanese sofubi figure, Tikumo the Super Sumo Tiki.  Each four and a half inch figure has been painted by Mark Nagata in a limited run of just fifteen pieces.  They will be available on July 9th at 6pm eastern time exclusively from

Gerald Okamura Custom Mini Figures Available Now

     Most of us had buckets of the brick building toys (that shall remain nameless) and it was guaranteed that at least a portion of them were sticky.  No investigation could ever unearth how they ended up with expired cola or pancake syrup tucked into the nooks and crannies, but it was as inevitable as your dad stepping on one of the pieces barefoot and calling you everything but your actual name.  But seriously, who was spilling soda onto my bricks?  The case remains open.

    I can assure you that no matter what sets you had growing up, they never came with mini figures nearly as cool as these.  Gerald Okamura is known as The Man of Many Weapons, so you know any toys bearing his likeness will come armed to the teeth.  You'd be surprised how much crime can turn up in your little brick village when you least expect it.

    There a two different versions available for $35 each and can be had right now at

Gerald Okamura Exclusives for DesignerCon


    Gerald Okamura is known as "The Man of Many Weapons" but I feel he's going to have to change that to "The Man of Many Exclusives" when it comes to this year's DesignerCon.  The film icon's instantly recognizable face has been transformed into everything from figures, to prints, and even skate decks.  Annnnnnnnd there is a custom show featuring his sofubi figure created by Max Toy Co.  Seriously, you might need to bring a spare suit case to bring all of it home.

      The majority of what he'll have available can be had at booth number 2136, but one location is not nearly enough to carry everything, so make sure you follow him on Instagram @officialgeraldokamura so you know exactly where to go.  I decided to pick just a few of my favorites to show you, otherwise you would spend the rest of your day scrolling this post.

Exclusive Gerald Okamura Sofubi at Kaiju Con from Max Toy Company

    I've had a lot of nicknames in my life, none which are really fit to print.  I may have deserved one or two of them but if I'm ever asked under oath I will deny their existence.  Gerald Okamura has been branded as "The Man of Many Weapons", which if someone ever called me that I would have that airbrushed on the side of my vehicle so everyone knew what was up.  It would be on business cards, a banner outside my house, and once a year I would take out an ad in the newspaper just to remind people.  Of course Gerald doesn't have to do any of that because we all recognize him instantly from all of the movies he's been in, and now he even has his own sofubi figure.

    Max Toy Company has released a few versions of these before, but the one you see above will be an exclusive to this weekend's Kaiju Con at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles.   Not only will you be able to get one of these killer toys, but The Man of Many Weapons himself will be there to sign them for you.  Maybe he'll even show you some awesome moves that you should definitely not run home and try on one of your siblings.
