The Totoro Cuckoo Clock

Happy (belated) New Year! I hope you and yours had a wonderful holiday.

If you were very, very lucky and/or very, very good, you just might have been blessed with one of the ultimate geek gifts ever conceived, much less made. Yes, I speak of the highly coveted masterpiece of merchandising that is the My Neighbor Totoro Deluxe Cuckoo Clock. Which sadly I didn't get, and is currently out of stock at J-List (though you can behold the Google cache). However, they do have lots of other wondrous Totoro imports I crave, including the Totoro Alarm Clock. But if you're dead-set on the cuckoo (and you will be once you see video of it in action), J-List can probably special order it (for a mere $288).

In related Totoro news, the 2-Disc Special Edition U.S. DVD is finally available for pre-order (it comes out March 7), while the English-language hardcover The Art of My Neighbor Totoro book is now available. (And both are on sale!)

I just bought the Totoro alarm clock. It looks very cool. J-list and eBay seem to be the best Totoro sources. Any other suggestions?
