When huge alien spiders or giant ocean-dwelling mutant dinosaurs visit Earth, hell-bent on destruction, they seem to stop in on Japanese TV shows first. Some of the toys featured in So Crazy Japanese Toys! are from widely-watched shows that have gained mass popularity around the world - including "Ultraman," "Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers," "Space Giants," and "Johnny Soko and His Flying Robot." No matter what type of character tickles your fancy, whether you are a casual fan or hard-core collector, So Crazy Japanese Toys! has something for you: Superheroes suited up in rubber and ready to battle whatever monster comes their way in a miniature city dwelling; cute 'n' cuddly characters, like the big, orange, Ramen noodle-eating Booska; rockin' chicks with both the ability to save the Earth or put it into great peril; and some of the freakiest foes to ever set tentacle on this planet. The preface by Rodney Alan Greenblat (creator of Parappa the Rapper) and hilariously-written chapter essays by the author explain the origins of these toys, and detailed captions include complete collector information.
