To all those, like us, who missed out on the first painted run of Megara sofubis last week, your luck may be about to change… as Butcher Brand reveals a limited batch of customs from none other than Megara producer, Velocitron! Originally available at Superfestival back in April, the 3″ tall customs have been cast in a gorgeous hot pink this time around, featuring teal, blue and gold sprays, plus a detail hugging dark wash. With a tentative release on the Butcher Brand store set for ‘this weekend’, we suggest keeping a close eye for the full lowdown on Butch’s IG feed here later in the week…
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.
