Jon Malmstedt over at Rampage Toys has teamed up with Frenzy for an all-new run of Cakefighter sofubi! Created as part of the huge line-up of toys Jon will be hauling to Wonderfestival on February 9th, the latest version of the Cupcake/Barbarian mash-up has been upgraded to 100% soft vinyl this time around (the original featured a keshi head), coming cast in flesh with metallic blue frosting, metallic “rust” attire and an extra special, still unrevealed surprise! Word on pricing and edition size is still to be confirmed, so be sure to keep track of the Rampage IG feed here for more details soon…
Opening it’s doors this morning to the usual hordes of sofubi and kaiju fans, the 62nd bi-annual Superfestival played host to one of the biggest showings from Rampage Toys yet, so big in fact that one booth was barely enough to contain the staggering selection of mini figures and sofubi! With a number of collabs, exclusive releases, new blanks and painted runs, we bring you a comprehensive lowdown of what was on offer, and (with a bit of luck!) will be available in the Rampage store next week…
Glyos Micro UU// Featured here on Friday, Superfestival 62 marked the debut of Rampage’s long awaited micro Glyos compatible figure. Cast by Eric Nilla, the 1.5″ piece comes with fully articulated joints. Cast in red/yellow, these guys come packed in a handmade window box.
Rampage Megara// A collaboration with Butcherbrand, these stunning sofubi minis have been cast in GID vinyl coming with Rampage’s signature mix of vivid sprays and tight fades.
‘Cute’ Zou-chan// The latest release from Rampage x Kikkake, the adorable little elephant has been cast in a light blue soft vinyl with blue/purple sprays and black/white detailing.
Blank Ugly Unicorns// Popular as ever, the signature Rampage sofubi has this time been made available in 3 unpainted colours; hot pink, neon orange and blue.
Telephone King// Angel Abby’s Telephone King sofubi mini received the Rampage treatment for the festival, coming in 2 distinct flavours- a metallic rainbow fade and retina burning V-Color neon.
Superfestival Manotaur// The latest painted run of the impressive 8″ beast from Imps & Monsters x Rampage, the beast has been cast in a clear red soft vinyl coming with tight masked black and yellow sprays.
Dino Gacha Gacha// The Dino Cyclops sofubis return for their latest blind bag (capsule!) run, and this time around they’re ALL painted! Featuring all 3 designs, the little guys come in a number of different colourways including a few unique one-offs!
Cakefighter head// Previewed earlier in the week, this Frenzy barbarian compatible head was sculpted by Rampage’s Jon Malmstedt and cast by Eric Nilla in a flexible rubber. Available at the festival sans-body, Jon has hinted at a full painted run in the near future.
Eric Nilla/Nama Niku- various// Both Eric Nilla and Nama Niku once again had strong showings at the Rampage booth, seeing the public debut of Mutant Dungeon Bastard, plus the return of old favourites Muscles of the Universe, SD Rick, Chibi Meatgrinder and Universe of Violence.
Tru:Tek and the Disarticulators- various// Unfortunately due to time restraints we weren’t able to bring anything new to the table for this one, but we did manage to send over a whole host of Critters, Wave 1 H.U.S.T.L.E, Kesh-E-Face, H.O.R.D.E and Beardfist, all in the exclusive Rampage neon pink and green… The festival also saw the debut of the long awaited Rampaging Critters. Cast in resin by Tru:Tek, Zectron’s little guys were painted up by Jon in a beautiful concoction of colours.
