    Interesting, so it's kind of an interest in "Americana" more than any intrinsic interest in the actual characters or licenses?

    Well, I dont mean to say that everything in America will be popular in Japan just because it is from America. However oftentimes with movies for example they will wait until the movie has been a success in the States so that they can advertise it that way. I have also seen several "character" stores that carry nothing but American merchandise. Oftentimes the characters will be well-known in the states but not really known here.

    Yesterday, I got my Nightmare Before Christmas kubricks of Jack as the Pumpkin King and the Clown with the tear away face to add to my collection now.

    I love the clown, it's so awesome to have him. :D:excited:

    What are the Henson Critters?

    I'm still waiting for the final two. They're fun looking, but very much remind me of Monsters Inc background characters. Not specific ones, just the look of them. I wouldn't say it's a bad thing. ;)

    I couldn't help it! I just purchased a Supreme Kermit Kubrick that will be shipping soon. I figured he'd be placed with the Sesame Street assortment. :)

    Since I already have all the Muppets characters and exclusives and all of the Sesame characters and exclusive (except for the 6 multi-colored Elmo variants, of course because regular Elmo is more than enough) I felt buying the Kermit exlusive was only fitting. It also shows support for the Muppet lines that Medicom may or may not take note. ;)

    Which begs the question... how well known are characters like Count Chocula over there?

    Hey Mickey ("you're so fine," etc. :) ), be sure to post if everything goes smoothly with that seller. He's got some other things that I would be interested in buying if he is legit. I saw the link listed on a Star Wars site as being fairly reputable, but it was from a year ago.

    Characters like Count Chocula are not extremely popular, but I see him quite often in character stores. Here are two examples:
    http://www.junk-yard.jp/american/index2.html
    http://sunbridge-shop.seesaa.net/shop/goods/SFNC001336.html

    According to the leading Kubrick fan site, the Count Chocula Kubrick was made specifically for Toy Tokyo in New York. The fact that it was made for America and has been difficult to find here in Japan has made it more popular here.

    That's what I thought. I know the Kellogs line had some Japanese only characters (I'd need to check Topher's Cereal Guide to get the specific names), and Elephant and a Gorilla. I wonder if this means they'll make more US exclusives like Chocula. I see them at a local chain store, Newburry Comics, where they sell some Kubricks.

    Yeah, the Elephant is named Melvin and the Gorilla is Konbo. I havent seen the Konbo cereal around but Melvin Choco Wa is pretty tasty.

    If there are ever any Kubricks that you cant find in the states let me know. They come up on the auction sites here quite often.
