Run'a - Horribly realistic giant isopod-shaped iPhone case

Cute? Yuck? Curious? Disgusting?

A gross giant isopod-shaped iPhone 5/5s case will go on sale soon.

The product was pretty popular at the Dwango's massive Niko Niko Cho Kaigi event, which took place on April 26 and 27, and it sold out in those 2 days!

In response to the high demand, Run'a Co.,Ltd., the manufacture of the uncannily realistic giant isopod-shape iPhone case, has decided to produce it on order. Run'a will be accepting the orders until July 7 and start shipping them around late August.

There will be 2 models available: regular grayish version for 7,980 yen and special gold version for 12,800 yen. At the Niko Niko Cho Kaigi, only the gray one was available.
