Here is a beautiful sample of an early 80s Japanese keshi figure and hand carved wooden prototype from Konno Industries’ iconic Baikin Corp gachapon line. Supposedly, Konno industries worked with a monk who specialized in temple carvings, to create these designs. Pretty amazing. Some of these precious prototypes showed up on the Mandarake auction site and were listed for 120,000 yen. Whew! Photos via Mandarake and Type-98
