Now they can get their hands on these 1:12-scale toilet and urinal model kits that guarantee hours of fun -- and perhaps some social ostracism.
The Western-style potty simulates a typical high-tech toilet with an arm for the bum spray controls. The lids open and close, too.
The included background stall comes with a tile floor and wall, a toilet paper dispenser, and even a container for female supplies. The plumbing fixtures are painted a chrome-like silver.
Everything is painstakingly detailed in the assembly instructions.
The men's kit comes with two urinals and a sink with a soap dispenser. If you buy multiple kits you can stick them together to create a full public restroom.
But the main fun to be had with these kits is using them as a stage for posing 1:12-scale figurines, in which Japan is awash.
You can laugh yourself silly by posing everything from doe-eyed manga girls to spiky-haired anime heroes with these toilets. Of course someone has already done that on a Japanese Web site, which I won't link to here because it's just a tad too crazy.
However, the promo pics for the model loos include some simple ball-jointed figurines posed in compromising positions.
The kits are available on Amazon.jp for about $19 apiece. Anybody have any 6-inch action figures from the '90s?
