Originally revealed here as a prototype back in April, Splurrt‘s latest monstrosity, the Cadaver Twins, have just received their first successful test pull! Pictured here in a green soft vinyl, the beast stands at around 6.5″ tall, coming with an impressive 7 points of articulation. News on a release are still pretty thin on the ground at the moment, but we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that an initial unpainted run will be offered up via preorder on a similar basis to the Apex Diggler soon. Keep track of the Splurrt blog here for more pics and info over the coming weeks!
Toy Mafia (\ˈtȯi mä-fē-ə\)
An organized international body of designer toy collectors, originally founded in NYC. Toy Mafia events take place monthly and are often associated with exclusive releases and excessive partying.
Clutter‘s monthly Toy Mafia event opens it’s doors for the first time at Concrete NYC this Saturday, kicking things off with 2 highly anticipated sofubi exclusives- the first to be revealed coming in the form of Mutant Vinyl Hardcore‘s Doji San! Cast in a blue soft vinyl with pink/red sprays and Monster Kolor heavy gloss, the masked beast stands at 4.25″ tall and 3″ wide. Limited to an edition of 21, Doji San will be available at the event for $100, with any remaining heading to the Clutter store soon after… Stay tuned for a full reveal of Cop A Squat’s TM exclusive Semi Korosiya soon!
Ahead of Superfestival 62 at the weekend, Jon over at Rampage Toys has managed to sneak in yet another sofubi collab, as he proudly presents the arrival of the long awaited RAMPAGE x Hints and Spices ‘UU and Waniphant’ art sets! Available in the Rampage store this Thursday at 2pm Japan time (around 1am EST), the packs will be available for just $85 plus shipping. Here’s a quick rundown of what you get for your money-

Whilst we rather impatiently wait for the delivery of the first batch of unpainted Evolved Beast Digglers, Splurrt shares images of the latest monstrosity heading to soft vinyl… presenting the Cadaver Twins! As with the new Diggler, it appears the hideous beast will be significantly larger than his older brothers, this time around coming with 4 fully articulated arms and 3 legs. Unfortunately news on the release is still thin on the ground at the moment (we suspect it’ll be at least Autumn before it sees the light of day), so we suggest keeping track of the Splurrt IG feed here for any further developments…
After a whopping 14 months on the drawing board, Any Old Ion‘s labour of love, the ‘Japanese Ion Men’ modular sofubi have finally been revealed in near-finished factory sample form! Consisting of a staggering 51 different soft vinyl cast parts designed by A.O.I in conjunction with turboPISTOLA, the series features a number of interchangeable pieces inspired by previous A.O.I releases ‘Atomic Beartank’ and ‘Seismic Ace’, Spanky Stokes’ Stroll, plus a number of all-new designs from the pair. Cast in a soft Japanese vinyl by none other than Velocitron, we should hopefully be seeing the first release soon… We’ll be interested to see whether the line will be offered up as a set of individual parts or as fully assembled bots, and of course, how colour will be dealt with considering the interchangeability factor- the possibilities are limitless! Either way, this will be one series any diehard ‘bot fan will NOT want to miss…
