    I dont see them doing painted runs of the zodiac figures. that'd be moving away from their source material.

    Want more painted
    I'm praying hard to the Toy Gods for a standard Tetran or Beralgon.

    I wonder if it's a whole new figure or different head sculpt.

    if anyone can message me about where to preorder one I would greatly appreciate it. I haven't bought one of their lucky bags since 2006 I think and would love to get one again. Thanks!

    Spotted on @b_dai777 instagram account. Looks like a new sculpt. Caption calls it Lucky Cat. Maybe this is the replacement for Zodiac figures?

    Unsure if this should've been in purple, but just to confirm . . . that's the original 2008 Rat.

    Cat!!!! :3

    Actually, that's an interesting one, as the cat isn't part of the Chinese zodiac and there are various stories as to the reason. I just looked it up on Wikipedia, and I guess one of them goes that the rat and cat were racing for first position in the zodiac, but the rat tricked the cat and ended up winning (while the cat never made it, and thus was not included in the zodiac). So it seems like this is more the conclusion of the original zodiac set, versus a new theme.

    Being that the rat & cat are both in the picture card this makes a lot of sense as to why they went with a cat figure.

    Could be a reference to the Vietnamese using a cat instead of the rabbit in their zodiac.

    Are we sure it’s a cat? Looks more like a shiba inu to me.

    Ran the blog post through google translate and here is what came out.
    "Happy new year.
    Thank you again this year.

    After the trouble, I'm Keika Ikeda of Gargamel.

    Gargamel's New Year's card Sofubi is also in its 13th year.
    I made a cat this year instead of a mouse.

    In Japan, it is unknown when the story was born,
    There is a story about the animals of the zodiac.
    Generally speaking, 12 animals were selected in the order in which they went to say hello on the day decided by God.
    Cows with slow legs departed earlier than anyone,
    The mouse rides on the cow, gets off the cow in front of the house of God (?),
    Then arrived cows, tigers, rabbits, dragons, snakes, horses, sheep, monkeys, birds, dogs and boars, and the zodiac was decided.
    The cat asked the mouse the day to go to say hello,
    The mouse told me a day late, so I could n’t enter the zodiac
    Cats became resentful of them and started chasing rats (eating?).

    This is a rough story.
    The New Year's greetings soft vinyl that I make is inspired by animals on the way to the greeting of this story.
    Since it is not a prototype that can take much time every year,
    The head is deformed and anthropomorphized to the extent that you can understand what kind of animal it is.
    For example, in the 2008 rat, both cattle and cats are deceived from the above story
    I'm dressed as a trusted monk,
    The only non-existent dragon is dressed in a monk used to disguise himself.

    When I started this project, I wanted to make a cat if I made all the zodiac signs.
    Originally, I had a cat,
    I like the cat's story of the above story because it is well made.
    I am very happy that it has been realized for over 13 years.
    In addition, the zodiac has different animals assigned by countries.
    Famous is the year of the boar.
    Japan is a boar, but pigs are often assigned to other countries.
    Last year, we made a wild boar for domestic use and a pig head for overseas use.
    In some other countries, cats are assigned instead of tigers and rabbits.
    In some countries, this year's cats will have 12 Chinese cats.

    Cats are said to bring good fortune, and I think it has become a good lucky charm."

    I'm glad the cat got to be a part of the Gargamel Zodiac.
