    That sofubitoy account just commented a BS "Thanks for your support" on one of my pics.

    Is there any merit in keeping this account unblocked? For reporting's sake or anything?

    I already replied back though.

    What is that guy trying to achieve? I checked his feed and it's just BS after BS reposts :x

    I just blocked the dude in the end. I deleted his BS comment too.

    The BootlegBusters account already knows of him.

    Was listening to Cory @Omnihiro on the Marsham Toy Hour earlier today - there was a little section talking about what makes japanese sofubi so unique and he touched on how in Japan, the material is pretty much liquid vinyl whereas in other places like Mexico and China, the base is in powdered form. Cory mentioned that he has been getting some quite rude messages from overseas factories demanding the japanese liquid vinyl.. I'd bet $5 this bootlegger was one of the pushier people who made an enquiry..

    I’ve yet to listen to the podcast, but I am excited to hear it. I’ve been tellin’ people for years that seikei in Japan is liquid, and a different consistency from China, but I didn’t know exactly how. Powder is super interesting to know!

    It looks like that's a Super7 product shot they're using for Stomp:

    http://www.vinylpulse.com/2011/11/super7-release-blackest-fridays-stomp-1125.html

    They're probably just showing that as an example of what they can produce, rather than something they are actually producing. Go to their store page:

    https://srxdm.en.alibaba.com/?spm=a2700.details.cordpanyb.1.439c331aPbLsaD

    Put in "Flynn" and you get more than one hit. They're just throwing a bunch of items out there with keywords that they think will attract interest of someone that wants to make their own figure. Search on "sofubi" and "kaiju" and you'll see stuff in there from Gargamel, Blobpus, etc.

    I have seen at this producer's page that he reproduces chinese toys aswell and as you can see even Paul Kaiju isn't safe...
