Having worked on numerous paint runs together in the past, long time buddies Jon Malmstedt of Rampage Toys and Bwana Spoons of Gravy Toys have finally joined forces to work on an all-new sofubi release…  the unlikely duo Paleo Don and Morel Black! Co-designed by the pair with sculpting and production courtesy of Rampage, the dapper looking figures feature a suited body in a similar action figure-vein to the Suns of Brodarr line, with interchangeable Don/Morel head and arms from RT and GT respectively. Pictured here in test-shot form, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for the first release within the next couple of months…


Splurrt’s “Kronos” test shot revealed…

First seen in prototype form way back in September of last year, the follow-up to Splurrt/Secretoy’s Cinema Monster – Kronos – has finally been revealed as a soft vinyl test shot! As with the original, the second CM beast has once again been inspired by the golden age of monster flicks, this time taking on Ray Harry Hausen’s iconic sea creature the “Kraken” from 1981 epic Clash of the Titans. Standing at around the same height of the first Cinema Monster at 10″ tall, the figure – whilst featuring a familiar head sculpt and textures – ditches the Kraken’s multiple tails in favour of chunky, four-armed design more in-keeping with the look of the series. Pictured here in a gorgeous yellow soft vinyl, here’s hoping we see the Kraken debut over the next couple of months…

Originally teased in prototype form right here back in May, the “Nekomata Jijyo” sofubi from Shirahama Toy has just been revealed in-full and he’s bringing along another new figure for the ride! Whilst information on the mid-large size piece is still thin on the ground at present, we can at least now confirm that he features a total of 7 points of articulation, including neat two-headed and twin-tailed details. Pictured here in a stunning marbled red and black soft vinyl, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that Nekomata Jijyo – and his as-yet-untitled wolf companion – make their debut soon…

In honour of their long standing relationship in the in the world of toys, Splurrt has been hard at work on a special “Uglier Unicorn” figure for Rampage Toys! Designed and sculpted by Splurrt based on Rampage’s first ever sofubi, the Ugly Unicorn, this new version features a similar 2-part, arms-up design, albeit with some extra hideous new features. Unveiled in test shot form at the Rampage Studios Halloween Group Show last night (above), we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that the little guy debuts at Designer Con ’15 next month…

Toy collector-come-designer Zhang Sheng has just unveiled his debut sofubi, the awesome Mimi Monster! Whilst little information has been given about the figure at present, it would appear that the slimy cyclops features a simple 2-part design that would suggest sizing to be around 3″-6″. Pictured above in a variety of unpainted test-shot colors, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that this means a release for the little guy very soon…

Mirock Toy have just unveiled not one, not two, but a whopping total of five new figures that have just made the transition into vinyl! Offering up a slightly more traditional aesthetic than their usual mecha-infused Dr Mirock figures, the set take on an idol-like quality, featuring a mix of Buddhas, monks and even Mirock’s “Mirocku Maru” VAG entry, all sculpted/carved by Kaneko Yowohei in a unique mix of “chemical” wood and clay. Pictured here in finished vinyl test shot form, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that all 5 figures make their way into the next online Mirock sale over the coming weeks. Keep a close eye on the Mirock Instagram feed here for more info soon…

Pictured here in a lime green soft vinyl produced by Velocitron over in Japan, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for the first painted run of this wholly disturbing creature soon…
