Ok, now WHY would anyone want to look like ANY Japanese politician--hell, for that matter, American one at that. They are all incompetent, and wishy-washy, and absolutely driven mad by which special interest to serve. Poor stupid mask maker. He is going to lose his a$$ on this one.

The Masuzoe mask looks really scary. And the mask for Kamei really doesn't do him justice - it needs to be stretched out more.

Look at that nasty Kamei mask....

Why buy a mask of the Prime Minister of Japan when, in this day and age, anyone, anywhere has got a pretty good chance of actually BECOMING the Prime Minister at the rate these chuckleheads are breezing through office.

I think they've got enough for a Point Breakesque bank robber gang.

Yep- that Hatoyama one is particularily creepy, but still less so than the genuine article.
