Leeeeee Toy’s EARTHLY sofubi revealed…

Up and coming sofubi producers Leeeeee Toy have just unveiled images of their debut toy, the wonderfully strange EARTHLY! Whilst we have very little to go on at present aside from the pics you see here, it would appear that the fully articulated soft vinyl figure draws on a number of influences – primarily cult 80’s toys the Cabbage Patch Kids/GPK and Gloworms – coming with a number of cool design features including butterfly hands and interchangeable “Good” and “Bad” heads that can be removed to reveal a tiny Earth underneath. Due for release at some point in the near future, be sure to keep track of Leeeeee’s Instagram feed here for the full lowdown on EARTHLY soon…
