Yo-Kai Models

Posted in Anime, Japan, Toys


I finally got around to putting the Shurakoma Yo-Kai Watch model kit together a couple of weekends ago. It was fun to revisit that part of my life: model building. Aside from the random kit I may have put together over the years, or the Warhammer 40K minis I started messing with a couple of years ago, I haven’t really messed with model kits since I was in high school.

These Yo-Kai kits are snap-together, which I wasn’t too sure of before putting Shurakoma together. It was actually a great build though. They really thought about how all of the pieces should go together, and aside from a few random loose accessories, the overall form is pretty rock solid.

I’ve since ordered a few more kits from the store in LA. All of them have been great builds, just like Shurakoma was. Now I want even more. Until the new wave of standard Yo-Kai toys hit shelves this year, these little model kits fill the void I have for collecting more Yo-Kai Watch stuff.
