    I made a furniture Sofubi.
    queue Moaning and discontent.
    I thought long and hard about what kind of Vinyl toy I wanted to produce.
    and... It's a couch.

    Thanks for looking <3

    I might have a few of these at designer con, for the homies.

    I like em personally. Kudos for not making another Nag ripoff or some other overdone horseshit.

    But you really need a rotting zombie penis omake to display casually on the couch. :dam:

    I’m definitely gonna need to pick one of these up for @chimmychazz (fuck yo couch, Charles!)

    I absolutely love this figure! Where can I get one at Dcon??
    You're doing some really wonderful things in your sculpting style that give it so much character. Sort of evocative of Grody Shogun's style.

    I don't know if this is just some meta joke on John ( ;) ), and it doesn't really matter. Definitely wins it for originality over what a lot of 'artists' are putting out as first time offers. I really dig those resin combos. I'm with David, I think the variety there lends itself well to the concept and probably a good few SBers would enjoy these. What's next, a while line of toy furnishings?

    Thanks, Steve!
    I love monster toys, I think we all do. And, I had made 4 different monster toys, but i wasn't liking any of them.

    The correlation between the word Sofubi, and sofa, most defiantly came to mind. I remember talking to John of Rampage toys.
    I made the mistake of calling to it as Sofa-bee...
    He said, "It's not sofa-bee, It's suh- fu- bee." I said... "It's too late!"

    If i was going to make a couch it'd be for my friends, and the size correlates with the toys i see the most, which are the 8 inch transformers, and the marvel legends.
    And too... a piece of work that had nothing to do with anything, but yet had a purpose, to be an accessory for toys.
    Making a toy is a scary, exciting experience. i think we all can agree, that making a vinyl toy is a expensive daunting journey. Out the gate, I was betting on people hating it. so Positive response is really exciting.

    I think my new tanuki would like to give his balls a rest and sit on that couch a while.

    I think everybody should pm @666doll about this. I'm sure @666doll will appreciate it immensely!

    Btw, how many of these would you need to build a life-size couch? Asking for a friend.

    As I basically don’t make toys with moving leg joints (gah! It falls! It faaaaalllllsss!!!!), my toys shall forthwith stand upon thy couch-oo-bee creation. Well done seeing this through - I wondered if you’d get cold feet!

    I'll tell you one thing, and as an artist with a bachelors degree I really mean this. You got balls. I don't want to dive too deep into it, but I'm fairly certain I could write an entire thesis on why this sculpt works so well in soft vinyl form. Damien Hirst or a Rothko, both artist's styles would compliment this canvas.
