When Pigs Fly

Saw this as I was coming into London on Monday; a giant, inflatable pig hovering above Battersea Power Station. I didn't know what to think.

I later found out it was to celebrate the reissue of Pink Floyd's albums.

My pretty arrangement of posters at TokyoToys. It was the only place to display them, plus it looks better than being able to see the stuff in the cabinets. Maybe now people will be less inclined to open them. :p

Isn't she adorable? We had the black version at the shop not too long ago and I regretted not buying it once we'd sold out of her. But now I'm so glad I didn't because this pink version looks so much cuter and suits her a lot more. I wasn't sure about the blue jacket at first but it's grown on me.

She'll be available in our store around next May. It means I'll be getting her long after everyone else (since her release date is January in Japan) but after the last two statues I'd received from Japan had noticable imperfections (fingers crossed Yoko arrives in perfect condition. >_<), I'd much rather see the statue in person and pick my own one out.

That's the great thing about having a physical store, you can come down and have a good look at the statue you wish to buy. ^w^
