Growing up in the 90’s I was obsessed with Star Wars and Action Figures. This evolved into collecting Designer Toys, anything Japan related and holding on the the feeling of action figures nostalgia.
For this reason I wanted to design the ultimate Designer Toy; A Japanese, Darth Vader Maneki Neko inc. Vintage packaging.
Everything is hand made. From the Maneki Neko itself, to the packaging and presentation. I love spending time on small details like the warning sticker (referring to the 9 lives of cats) and combining the famous Darth Vader quote into the title of the design. “I find your lack of luck disturbing”.
