Nagai and Tomino creations in Lucca Comics & Games were present as idols of the Japanese giant robots religion spread by anime on TV. I feel that I need some votive statues with them. I have some Tomino pieces of his pantheon in my house but none of Nagai ones. This could be heresy.

A short review of some of the millions of statuettes, gadgets, models, action figures and similars that were around. You can find sexy things, perfect painted figures, auto-built models for modelling contests, rainbow Star Wars AT-AT made with Lego, giant Giger’s alien made with mechanical parts, Doraemon mesh-ups with animals, Marvel superheroes mesh-upped as samurai, giant dioramas with Marvel superheroes that you cannot put inside a normal house. Huge quantities of money is not always the problem, it is the available space the only limit to buy them.

Romics – october 2017

Two times every year, this is an appointment that I don’t want to miss. As the same I go here in the less overcrowded day of the convention. I find some comics that I didn’t pick up previously, a lot of gadgets (as Funko), and a day immersed in one of my principal interests. And in the last years it is even the moment to taste weird foods and beverages from Asia, and a big slice of pizza with mortazza.

Romics – april 2017

Time travel. There were two more Romics editions after this one. Always the same story about backlog of posts. However we had fun at time. It is the excuse to buy comics, gadgets. And to taste strange foods and drinks from Asia. And to watch beautiful female cosplayers. We visit Romics during an entire day from the open to the closure, always in the less overcrowded day.




Due to Romics links with Japan we had the visit of Yoshiyuki Tomino, the man behind Gundam.





At the end an image of my friend Paolo together with his nephew, a eclectic cosplayer.

Lucca C&G 2016: Walk around [part11]

I showed close-ups at the most on particular subjects. Now is the turn to watch some views of Lucca and his habitants in the 50th year of the convention. Always a partial view, but it is something at least. The eye of the camera is so small that cannot reproduce hundred of thousand people that walk around Lucca and that are involved in this world.



























At the end the new fashion of 2016: barriers against death by car terrorism.

Comic conventions are the reign of gadgets more than the reign of comics. Here some statuettes and gadgets that I saw around. And with a large participation of Funkyo puppets, the most popular gadget of these years. There is so many stuff that your head spin.

I like this kind of statuettes. You can find around a lot of models at very high prices. It is another world as miniature world, with its sculptors and people involved. I don’t know it deeply but I like this stuff. Even because I like female figures, obviously. However I am more inclined to buy 1/6 military figures than these ones. Is war more interesting than females?

Lucca C&G 2016: Gundam [part05]

Gundam is not a Japanese giant robot, it is an universe. Gunpla is a big business too. I still read new Gundam manga and new Gundam anime. But I don’t build more Gundam models because I don’t know where to put them in my house. However they are so beautiful. Some examples here took around the convention.
