MAN-E-REPORT// Cosmo Knight Alpha store visit…


One of the many, many highlights of our trip over to Japan, we were lucky enough to make the pilgrimage over to the legendary Cosmo Knight Alpha shop on our last day. Run by Longneck’s Yoda-san, the modest sized space in Sakae-cho is home to easily one of the biggest collections of rare soft vinyl we’ve ever witnessed, featuring a staggering selection of vintage kaiju, original Cosmos gachapon figures, hard to find blow moulded minis, Bemon, and of course, THAT Longneck display window in the front. Anyone with even a slight interest in soft vinyl needs to visit this place at least once in their life- the following pictures after the drop simply do it no justice…

Tru:Tek and Yoda-san happy with their new purchases!


The Ooze-Ball alongside a selection of the original Cosmos Alien gachapons- truly an honour!
