    Honestly not trying to be cynical, but in any case, full props to our main man Brent for making the 'big time' sofubi world.



    This was a great release, and I am not shocked it has proven very popular. Otus love, respect man. :thumbsup:

    just finished up my new sculpt. As usual, it took me way longer than I thought it would,
    but I'm really excited about it! It will be around 4" tall and is not owl-based.
    I named the company Owl, but that's not all I'll be making. :o

    Came here for owl toys, and now you are changing the game. As usual, another maker who dismisses all the things the fans tell them to do; opting for 'creativity' instead. Thanks, thanks a lot. You never see this kind of treatment on the KR forums.

    Stoked for the new sculpt, I'm sure it'll be rad! Curious based on the size, I'm sure it'll make a great carry around toy!

    Just a heads up, the next Otus release will be at 5points.
    I'll give more details when I have them.

    Otus was my most unexpected pickup at Five Points, and definitely a highlight of the show. I only wish I hadn't spent so heavy earlier, so I could have tried for both the painted and mixed-parts releases. Thank you so much @evom for the buckets of weird sensitivity behind this sculpt, and a palette that threw me for a loop in the best way.

    Between Saturday and Sunday he was the only toy from the haul that I opened, and I took the chance to take some photos on my walk from my apartment to the con this morning :)

    Here are the photos, under a spoiler tag for some brevity:
    Base vinyl looks almost solid in regular light, but outside it reveals itself as a beautiful clear dark green-blue

    He plays really nicely with flowers, so I got a few shots in the couple of blocks where people grow different blooms on the sidewalk.

    And finally, here's a photo you can only take at 6am in New York. Straight down Manhattan Ave in Greenpoint.

    Lovely photo @zindabad of a really great toy. Congratulations on a very nice score from Five Points, and kudos to Brent for another wonderful release and continuing excellent output.

    Brent did a really great job on that painted green. I missed the announcement and by the time I got in line he was wrapping up the last painted. Definitely excited to see this again.

    thanks guys!

    @zindabad great pics! I didnt really get a good shot of that one, so it's cool seeing it in good lighting.

    Next release will be a larger run and fully painted.

    I picked this up for a good local dude, with Brent’s permission, and with my buddy’s permission got a photo of the Otus bagged! Gettin’ to formally meet Brent was rad, and this painted green Otus is wonderful. The clear fluorescent pink was all sorts of eye burning good.
