sales page 1

We bring back SoftoyHobby this weekend to shine a light on the debut sofubi from our very own ShinGangu imprint… the Kaijyu Battleground playset!

  • Articulation: 1 point (lid)
  • Contents: 1x playset, 2x micro, 1x boat omake, 1x seal pack, 1x pin 1x coloring book
  • The Line: Inspired by classic kaiju and the pachimon sub-culture, Kaijyu Battleground is an all-new series from the mind of ShinGangu’s TruTek. Set to feature a whole host of full-size figures and playsets, each will pay homage to a particular film, series or theme, whilst also helping to expand the deep alt-narrative planned for the many locations and characters in-store. The first set – Gargamon Vs Baraton – has its roots dug firm in Toho’s Frankenstein CtW and follow-up, War of the Gargantuas, featuring a similar heart (the playsets shell), caveman-like character and kaiju, all set against a post-war landscape in a Mighty Max-style format.
