Tintin in Tibet, Air India and Chang Chong-Chen

For the Summer 2015 Moulinsart Tintin Collection, a series of eight model airplanes that appear in the Adventures of Tintin will be available. The plane is mounted on a stand, with the involved character on the base. Made of a combination of metal and plastic components, each model is packaged in a clear round display box. Overall height of the model is six inches.

In Tintin in Tibet, Tintin’s friend Chang, having been rescued by Tintin and Capt. Haddock, recounts the crash of the Air India flight he was on into a snowy Himalayan peak. Injured and the only survivor, Chang wakes up, eye to eye with a Yeti in his lair. The Yeti nurses Chang back to health, only to watch with distress as Tintin and Haddock bring Chang back to civilization.

The model depicts the Air India DC 3 with Chang is on the base, struggling against the elements just after the crash.


 
Funko Science Fiction Mystery Mini Group Portrait

We managed to get a group portrait of all the Funko Science Fiction Mystery Minis though we had to separate the feuding Bloody Predator and Metallic Alien Queen with Robby the Robot. Anyway, from the back, left to right, the figures, with their packaging ratios are; Alien Queen 1/24 , Clear Predator 1/36, Bloody Predator 1/24, Robby the Robot 1/12, Metallic Alien Queen 1/12, Robocop 1/12, Mars Attack Alien 1/72, Metaluna, 1/24, Predator 1/12, Jaynee Cobb 1/36, Rocketeer 1/72, Glow in the Dark Tron 1/12 , Tron 1/12, Spock Amok Time 1/12,  Captain Mal 1/24 and ET 1/12.

The Funko Mystery Minis come blind boxed, which means that all the figures come in identical boxes. Here at Sausalito Ferry Co brick and mortar, we open up those boxes and sell the figures individually. We have found that selling blind boxes is frustrating and expensive for the customer so we have done away with that lottery.The rare pieces are on sausalitoferry.com only.

Le Petit Vingtieme and Tintin in the Land of the Soviets

In 1925, the 18 year old Herge came to work at the Belgian newspaper, Le Vingtieme,.as a simple clerk and then rising to art director and illustrator for the newspaper. In 1925, the weekly youth supplement, Le Petit Vingtieme, was started with Herge as editor. Four years later, the panels of Herge's first Tintin work appeared in those same pages, Tintin in the Land of the Soviets.
The theme of the 2016 Tintin calendars will feature the panels of Tintin in the Land of the Soviets, Tintin in America and other works that appeared in Le Petit Vingtieme.
We will have most of all the Moulinsart Tintin 2015 collection in the store and on sausalitoferry.com when they become available this summer.

Come To The Dark Side, We Have Tenugui

Tenugui is a Japanese towel or cloth that was used for general household chores until it was replaced with more practical to use modern cleaning materials. The tenugui is still made, but now is printed with a wide range of designs from traditional Japanese fabric prints to Star Wars. We have a interesting group of the Star Wars Tenugui on sausalitoferry.com that we bring in from Japan. Printed on linen 100% cotton fabric with water based inks, each towel is 36" long and 13 1/2" wide.

Still reflecting their humble origins, the Star Wars Tenugui have unfinished edges. Without the finished seam, the rags could be easily torn into pieces to suit the job at hand.


 
Game of Thrones Funko Mystery Minis Series Two Checklist

Later this spring, Funko will ship Series Two Game of Thrones Mystery Minis. As Funko's practice, all seventeen of the new figures come blind boxed. They come in varying proportions, with the most common character figure found in one of every twelve pieces. Other figures have package ratios of 1/36 and the rarest, 1/72. However in brick and mortar Sausalito Ferry Co and on sausalitoferry.com, we remove the 2 1/2" tall figures from their blind boxes and line them up for customers to choose the figures they want. The rare 1/72 figures are both versions of Drogon and Bran Possessed Hordor.


 
Japanese Erasers You Have Never Seen Before

We thought we had seen almost every kind of eraser, Japanese and otherwise, in our time that we have had Japanese Erasers on sausalitoferry.com. In our travels around Japan,  we stumbled across a line of miniature Japanese erasers. The Miniature Japanese Erasers are smaller than the familiar Iwako Japanese erasers, as these mini erasers are only about 1/2 inch tall. For their diminutive size, the detailing is superb. With over 100 different types, one can find unusual animals such as the stonefish, fugu, horseshoe crab and giant Japanese salamander Japanese erasers.

Or, if you prefer your Mini Japanese Erasers more long the cute side, you can choose fat baby fur seal erasers, a family of otter erasers, some curious llama erasers, or a group of wary capabara erasers.

And in case you were wondering, we do have a prehistoric living fossil in eraser form, the coelacanth.

Tim Und Struppi Exhibition 2001 Poster

Tim und Struppi Exhibition Poster for the Wilhelm-Busch Musuem in Hanover, Germany 2001. The exhibition showed the evolution of Herge as an artist that focused on an early work, "Les Aventures de Tintin en Extrême-Orinet" (1934) and contrasted with "Tim au Tibet" (1958-59). "Tintin in Tibet" is considered is best book. Also included in the show were the travel magazines and interior design catalogs that influenced the look and feel of his books. Poster is 22 1/2" tall and 16 1/2" wide



 
Au Tibet avec Tintin Exhibition Posters

In support of the Tibetan people and culture against the Chinese occupation, the Herge Foundation created an exhibition that combined Herge's art and drawings from "Tintin in Tibet" with art and artifacts from Tibet. Unlike earlier works, "Tintin in Tibet" moves away from the simple stereotypical ethnic characterizations to a nuanced and respectful depiction of Tibetans. Herge gives characters an emotional depth not seen any previous works and "Tintin in Tibet" is considered his finest work.

The left "Au Tibet avec Tintin" poster is for the Musees Royaux d'Art et d'Histoire Brussels exhibit during the summer of 1994.

The show then moved to the exhibition space at Foundation de l'Arche Fraternite Toit de la Grande Arche in Paris during the winter of 1994/95.



 
Walking Dead Series Three Funko Mystery Minis

The Funko Mystery Mini Figs all come blind boxed. Blind boxing is a form of lottery tickets for toys. All the boxes are identical on the outside, and you do not know what is in the inside until you open it. Getting three of the same figures is frustrating. At Sausalito Ferry Co, we open up the blind boxes and make available the Funko Mystery Minis for customers to choose the character of choice.

Below is the entire collection of Series Three Walking Dead Funko Mystery Minis. The rarest figures are the Glow in the Dark Impaled Walker and Bloody Tyreese with package ratios of 1/36 and Bloody Glenn and Headless Hershel at 1/72. All the others have ratios of 1/12 and 1/24.

From the left; Hershel, Brain Exposed Walker, Glow in the Dark Impaled Walker, Impaled Walker, Bloody Daryl, Daryl, Abraham. Center back is Rick Grimes, Glenn, Bloody Glenn, Maggie, Clara Walker, Carol,  Bloody Tyreese, Tyreese and Headless Hershel. Front in center, of course, Daryl's Chopper.

 
Golden Gate Bridge General Plan and Elevation Blue Print

Reprinted from an original blue print facsimile, The General Plan and Elevation of Bridge describes the Golden Gate Bridge in it's completed form. The side view elevation shows from the 746" high towers from mean sea level to the 300 feet depth of the San Francisco bay below center span. The topographical illustration shows the elevation of the land on both north and south sides of the bridge.

The Vicinity Map insert marks the locations of the proposed bridge and connecting highway. The blue print is signed by the bridge's promoter and lead engineer, Joseph Strauss along with the date of April 1931. Strauss, however, was not the designer of the architectural elements that have made the bridge iconic. The print size is 12" X 36" and comes rolled in a plastic sleeve.

Metal Earth Star Wars X Wing Fighter Metal Model Kit

The new X Wing Metal Model Kit from Metal Earth is a continuation of the Stars Wars series of models. This kit is the only metal model of the fighter that we know of. The kit comes as two thin high polish stainless steel sheets that are laser etched and cut. Because laser etching can inscribe down to microns in size, the detailing is amazing. View into the cockpit to see Luke's helmet and just behind, the tiny R2 D2. Vents, ports and mechanicals can be clearly seen throughout the fuselage.

This kit is of medium hard difficulty because of the round engine nacelles and wing tip pods. To insure a nice round tube, roll the flat part around a the shaft of a screwdriver or similar object that matches the completed part diameter.

The competed model is 4" long, wingspan is 3 1/2" and stands 1 3/4" high.

Iwako Series Two Sushi Japanese Erasers. Now With Cup of Green Tea.

Iwako, maker of all things Japanese Eraser, has gone back to it's roots by creating a second series of Sushi Japanese Erasers. This group is intimately scaled smaller than the first versions, which brings a dollhouse preciousness to the new erasers. From left to right, the erasers are, ebi, tamagoyaki, toro, ikura, uni and tekkamaki. The bottom row of images shows the larger 1 1/4" long first series of Japanese erasers next to the smaller series two versions. Each eraser comes with a cup of green tea. The plate that this second series of sushi erases sit upon is one inch across. We should have these sometime in November 2014.
