1/1 HoiHoi-san Variation Exhibition & Contest

Kotobukiya is currently holding an exhibition at its direct store, showcasing the many variations built from the already released 1/1 HoiHoi-san.

"Alice Ver." with action pose straight from the box art (limited release)

Some are "still" quite adorable (the original version and the upcoming Heavy Combat Ver. are the most adorable ones in my opinion), but some are a bit spooky for me. I felt like they have the potential to turn into Chucky soon ^^;

Then again, HoiHoi-san just showed you how innovative it has become to kill cockroaches in the future, like samurai swords, poison gas, machine gun, handcuffs, even bulldozer as well. ^^

Also, a special "HoiHoi-san Contest" which has started since November 28th last year is still taking in participation till February 14th.

Two divisions created for this competition:
* Remodeling - emphasize on the creativity of modification and painting to be done on HoiHoi-san.
* Diorama (?) - "HoiHoi-san in my home" - to show the activity of HoiHoi-san which can convey idea and story.

Limited in Japan I suppose. ^^;
