Happy SUNday! – Yashica Cousins

Yashica’s advertising figurine (doll?) from the early 1960s. Officially nameless but I’ve tagged him with “Sailor Boy” for obvious reasons.

My camera shop display sized (20 cm) Yashica “Sailor Boy”. This one was still in its sealed plastic bag and original box from Modern Plastics of Japan.

Another dealer display model (not mine) of Yashica’s “Sailor Boy” – this one looks as though he’s been in a bar fight in Tokyo!

I’m not sure which one was first but my guess is that the “tough guy” version may have been a prototype as I’ve never seen another one for sale in all my years of collecting Yashica branded items.

Have a great day y’all! – Chris
