    Welcome! Although we own very little, my wife and I are big fans of oddities (loved the TV shows of the same name) and all things dark (Marilyn Manson, etc.). She keeps telling me that she wants to decorate our next house with those items. Oh, and I did just buy my younger son a "wet specimen" mantis shrimp. ;)

    GutterKnight, I too am from Florida, albeit a little further south (and east). Welcome aboard!

    Hello everyone, my name is Thomas i'm from the north of France. The toy crazyness got me a year ago, the lowbrow art led me to designer/art toys then i discovered sofubis and my mind was blown. I really love vintage japanese toys,keshi and like to keep me updated on what's newly made by modern makers. I'm fond of weird and beautiful stuff, sci fi, fantasy and post apocalyptic settings. i'm a violin maker, i like to make stuff with my hand. Always wanted to try sculpting and toys are a great medium to do neat stuff, so i may have tried to make something just for fun.
    I don't know what else to say, i'm happy to be a member of this forum and thank you !

    Hi Thomas

    I've been collecting about the same time and it was also through a love of lowbrow art that got me into sofubi and brought me here.

    Ive found being on SB really helpful in both locating toys I was after and info on makers I don't think I'd have heard of otherwise.

    I hope SB is as good to you as it has been to me!

    Bob

    @Maxrez - Hey, man, I guess that's I guess that's the something you "may have tried to make" you've got linked here. I don't really care too much for the "ugly" type aesthetic, but I like the proportions on this guy, and with that smile, this guy has some charm! Neat.

    I remember reading Juxtopoz back when it was the only forum for lowbrow, and I thought a lot of the designer/art toys were pretty cool, but I never really got into collecting. I do still think it's pretty funny that I was seeing stuff from guys like Biskup, Woodring and Kozik who do do the soft vinyl thing, and it's a little weird to think it was in right front of me so long ago. Welcome!

    @Nuggets303420
    Thank you for your welcomes !
    @nefasth
    Oui c'est de moi. Au plaisir de te lire.
    @Bob
    Very glad to be here it's such a goldmine of informations !
    @Odibex
    I have to admit, when i started making Moche i was in my MVH period. After a while i started discovering more and more vintage design and realising how wrong i was to make something in the "ugly" trend. But it was a fun experience and i really like the paintjobs on many ugly vinyls.

    there was a time i started a blog about lowbrow, there was not many ressources on it on the internet. But i was too lazy to continue :D

    Thanks everyone !

    Well, I don't want to say there's anything wrong with that style, many people like it (as clearly evidenced buy those prices), including many folks here. But some things do transcend their genre. I love Retrobrand's MEATS, and that's pretty ugly, and I like your guy, too!

    But tastes do change. I am totally not into the stuff I started out buying. Lots of people here like that stuff, though, so.. maybe I wasn't so wrong to begin with, haha.

    Hey guys! Name is Justin, but I go by Banshee/Banshee Toys everywhere else. Born in Japan but raised in the US, and got bit by the sofubi bug after visiting Lulubell a few years back. Been doing resin toys for a while, almost done on my first release, and eventually trying to make my way into the soft vinyl medium. Really dig Rumble Monsters, Sunguts, Science Patrol and Rampage/Gravy/Bwanaspoons. Thanks for the add and can't wait to meet more collectors and artists on here!

    Not quite so fast, Goon Scum. No wait, with a name like Goon Scum you'll fit right in :lol:

    @BansheeToys - I got a disproportionate amount of stuff from Lulu when I started collecting. And... I'm waiting on a pre-order from them now, actually :thumbsup:


    Welcome, guys.
