Mandarake have unveiled a number of new toys they’ll have up for grabs at their upcoming Daiman Festival this week, the highlight for us coming in the form of this incredible licensed Chō Kōsoku Galvion sofubi! Taken directly from the classic 80’s mecha anime, “Garubion” has been faithfully recreated in soft vinyl form, standing at a gargantuan 12.5″ tall and featuring extensive articulation that changes the figure from ‘bot to car within seconds. Produced in Garubion’s signature white, blue, grey and black for this first run, the figure will be going on sale at the festival this Friday, August 5th for 19,440yen. Here’s hoping we see a version outside of Japan soon!

MAN-E-NEWS// The custom Soundwave sculpt from UME Toys…

After having to wait a little while longer than expected for some quality decals, Rich over at UME Toys is proud to finally unveil the much anticipated Soundwave sculpt… and boy, was it worth the wait! Featuring the same unmistakable broken-geometric style as the previous Iron Man sculpt (featured here), the long spindly arms and legs, coupled with the flat design of of the body really help give a new spin on the well-worn Transformers aesthetic… giving the robot an almost vulnerable feel that we’ve never seen before. Sculpted using polymer clay and finished in Rich’s usual signature weathered style, Soundwave should be touching down in the UME Toys store sometime soon for around £190-£200. Stay tuned for a full reveal of the UME Toys NYCC skulls tomorrow, including at look at the very special one-off “Brains” edition!
