Black Sabbath

I had no idea Kuroiwa Akira (Black Sabbath) had passed away last August 2009–at the age of 37. He was the main sculptor for MegaHouse’s P.O.P line and also did UpLark’s Kamina and Viral. A memorial tribute exhibition was held for him at this past weekend’s Wonder Festival where they gathered all of his figure sculpts for the the public to view.

His sudden death is a huge loss for the figure industry, he was an amazing sculptor and my favorite to boot; I loved all his One Piece works. Viral and Kamina were among his most amazing pieces yet. What sad news ( ; w;).

    Nooo! Seriously? I had no clue this had happened…it’s really terrible news, especially for us male-figure fans. Age 37 is too early. D:
