NinjAlieN creator Keisuke also known as Sadie Pinkgalaxy (MySpace, Facebook) has released some of the most insane underground toys there are to find in this world. 

Besides Making toys Keisuke is the owner and president of Psychedelia toy store Osaka (Japan's #1 collectible vintage toy shop, also on Ebay) and Clothing comany TeknoPolice (a very modern, almost futuristic, clothing brand store from the whole of the world) where he also sells his own very cool clothing label ZIguridol.

Sadie Pinkgalaxy rocks the Guitar in the New Wave Genre with his full time band named Speecies (SPEECIES 1st ALBUM OUT NOW, more info here) and part-time band XA-VAT (More info, here). If you like JAPANESE ELECTRONICAL PUNK ROCK please check above links and do a Youtube search!

I've been a fan of Sadie's Toys, Music and clothing ever since I saw his first toy release at Wonder Festival 2012 (Winter) covered by Kaijukorner's Andy, here. Keisuke was extremely kind in agreeing to do this interview and answered my many questions.

Goedemiddag (Goodafternoon in Dutch) Sadie, would you mind telling us a little bit about yourself?

Sadie Pinkgalaxy: Just a guy who knows James the Virtual Cowboy and DADA-MOLI-YEAH!

Sadie is referring to the two different toys he made below, both where available in various colors. Most sold out and only a very limited few are still available at psychedelia toystore, here.

[Kurukuru Mutant BOY] Army of Justice TPO Soldier  (Virtual Cowboy James) 

This soldier has endured a life wandering the depths of space through his ability to match one of 3 faces to any time, place, or occasion. When or when he came to Earth remains a mystery, but 2 things are clear:  

1) He isn't a bad guy. 

2) He really hates the [KILL KILL DESTROYEAHS]

What will become of planet Earth now that the [KILL KILL DESTROYEAHS] have arrived?!?! Will the [Kurukuru Mutant BOY] army be able to put a stop to their mischievous wrath!?!?!?

This alien monster just made his first terrestrial landing at the 2012 Summer Tokyo Wonder Festival!!! He represents the element water in the 7 member Distortion Warrior Squad of the vile [KILL KILL DESTROY-YEAH] brigade from outer space!  They have come in pursuit of their sworn enemies, The [KURU-KURU MUTANTBOY] Army of Justice, with whom they are engaged in an epic conflict in this Hardcore-Romantic-Science-Fiction-Spectacle-War!!!

His shoulder faucet handles turn freely and his belt has been replaced with a distortion guitar pedal! And don't forget the flowing bangs which bring a deranged element of cuteness to this scoundrel!!!

This line of figures was created using a marble molding technique, making each one absolutely unique!!
