Amazon Box Robot Figure on Sale in Japan
Amazon Japan commissioned this custom toy (designed by the creator of one of my favorite anime* Azumanga Daioh
!), designed to appear as if it were a golem brought to life from discarded shipping boxes. It's sort of brilliant, acknowledging the stack of boxes dedicated Amazon users amass, while injecting a little bit of whimsy. It's only 2200 yen, too. I'd get it if I thought my Amazon Prime would let me ship it from Japan for less than the cost of the figure.
Bring a few over to North America, Amazon!
