Miniature Restroom for Action Figures: Everyone Poops
Action figures come with all sorts of props, but the Japanese hobby shop Amiami has one prop that you most certainly don’t have in your collection yet. It’s a 1:12 scale restroom. Why? Because your action figures haven’t gone since they were packed in their box.
