Tim Stephson over at Ultimate Skull & Cobra is proud to reveal that his signature Skullgasm figure will be making the leap into soft vinyl soon! Pictured here in finished prototype form – cast in the original Hasbro wax mix, no less – the sculpt has seen a number of refinements over the original resin version, including more realistic detailing, the loss of the wrap around tongue, and the inclusion of a standard-sized neck joint for future bodies/collaborations. Currently winging its way over to Japan for production as we speak, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for the first Skullgasm sofubi release around summer time…

Limited to an initial run of just 5 pieces – each coming painted up in their own unique colorway – the King Kaiju will be up for grabs at just $150 plus shipping- a snip when you consider the sheer amount of work that’s gone into each one!
