Originally mentioned in our announcement of the “Clash of the Titans” show at Rampage Studios this week, we can now bring you the first teaser of the Oozeball micro-run from Cosmo Knight Alpha/Longneck! Whilst most details remain close-guarded until later this week, we can reveal that CKA’s Yoda-san has painted up 10 of the Disarticulators‘ Ooze-It/Madball homage for the release, coming in a mix of red, blue and metallic green sprays inspired by his original “Planetary Delusion” Yusei Majin colorway. Going on sale at the event this Friday, June 26th, expect a full reveal over the next couple of days…

Jon Malmstedt over at Rampage Toys is proud to announce arguably the biggest show in sofubi this year… Rampage Studios’ one-day-only “Clash of the Titans” mega event! Featuring works from some of the biggest artists in contemporary kaiju and sofubi, including Paul Kaiju, MVH, Splurrt, Leo Sofvi Bouya, Izumonster, GEEK! and of course Jon himself, the event will also play host to a very special “secret” Oozeball release from none other than Cosmo Knight Alpha/Longneck! Whilst details on the release are still close guarded at present, it would appear that The Disarticulators’ “squeaky toy” is set to receive a very limited painted run courtesy of CKA’s Yoda-san. Opening it’s doors at the Tokyo-based location next Friday, June 26th at 7pm, expect teasers for the show – plus details on that Oozeball release – over the next few days…

MAN-E-REPORT// Cosmo Knight Alpha store visit…

One of the many, many highlights of our trip over to Japan, we were lucky enough to make the pilgrimage over to the legendary Cosmo Knight Alpha shop on our last day. Run by Longneck’s Yoda-san, the modest sized space in Sakae-cho is home to easily one of the biggest collections of rare soft vinyl we’ve ever witnessed, featuring a staggering selection of vintage kaiju, original Cosmos gachapon figures, hard to find blow moulded minis, Bemon, and of course, THAT Longneck display window in the front. Anyone with even a slight interest in soft vinyl needs to visit this place at least once in their life- the following pictures after the drop simply do it no justice…  (more…)

It’s been a few months since we last heard anything from Skull Head Butt, so it came with great pleasure today to find they’ll be carting along a total of 7 exclusives to Wonderfestival next Sunday, February 9th! Joining the Nag inspired Gabeji-X and fearsome Gorilla Anger, SHB have rather interestingly teamed up with Target Earth and Wombat Toys for the remaining 5 figures, featuring mash-ups of Craterman and Cosmo Knight Alpha alongside Meteor-X and Comet-X. Whilst a retail price is still forthcoming, forwarding service M-World are currently offering up the figures at 11,500yen ($112) each. Drop them a line at m-world-service@dream.jp with any enquiries…
