Softoy Round-Up: Part 1…

With so much going on throughout my trip in Japan over the past couple of weeks, I’ve unfortunately not had much of a chance to update Softoy Hobby- sorry guys! Whilst spare time is still hard to come by at the moment, I’ll be making an effort to keep you updated on what’s going on in the world of sofubi/keshi with a rather more condensed form of news starting today. Expect regular coverage to resume in the next week or so, and be sure to keep an eye out for my exclusive coverage of both the Rampage Studios Finale and Superfestival, plus insights into both sofubi production and factory painting with my upcoming trips to master painter Goto-san’s workshop and the Maruyama factory early next week… As always, thank you all for your continued support of my little blog, I hope you enjoy what I have in store!

Softoy Hobby in Japan plus the coming of Sumoggubōru…

shop header closed.jpg

Hey guys! As some of my Instagram followers may be aware, I recently quit my day job to focus 100% on toys. Whilst this of course will mean I’ll be taking on more production commissions, creating more of my own sofubi and painting whatever comes my way, the extra time will also mean I’ll be able to focus more of my energy on making Softoy Hobby the most comprehensive news site across both soft vinyl and keshi- yay! Before this though, I’m going to be taking some time out to visit the home of these very special toys that we all know and love, Japan’s capital Tokyo. Helping Rampage Toys’ Jon Malmstedt wrap things up before his move back to the States next month, as well as prepping for various shows we’ll be attending whilst I’m out there, I’ll also be spending some time on getting the proverbial ball rolling on my latest sofubi, the Sumoggubōru. A follow up to the hugely popular Oozeball, Sumoggubōru (roughly translated as Smog Ball) has been heavily inspired by smog monster kaiju – Bemon’s classic Kougai in particular – featuring a unique 360° rotatable mouth, 6 eyes which convey a wealth of expressions, as well as innumerable hidden details including power stations, waste pipes and even a micro Ooze-It for good measure! Designed by myself and sculpted by my good friend Richard Page of UME Toys, the crazy looking figure is due to be waxed during my stay, with a hopeful debut planned for DCon ’16 in late November…

Processed with Snapseed.

So! Whilst Softoy Hobby’s general news updates are likely to take a hit due to lack of both time and internet connection throughout my stay, regular readers can expect show reports from the likes of Superfestival and the closing Rampage Studios exhibition, updates on the painted runs I’ll be offering, plus details on the Sumoggubōru’s initial stages of production. Those that couldn’t care less about all that stuff?! You’ll be glad to know that both Softoy Hobby and the dedicated store will be back in full swing starting Friday, September 30th…

Thanks to all of you for your continued support guys!
