    Yep, moobs are definitely in.

    I got to say, the “but would you play with it” question is a good one. I love sofubi, and I think of most of my collection as half toy, half art.
    These figures that are being posted really don’t look like toys. They look like sculptures. The kind that you might pick up and take a look at, but never play with. I don’t feel like there’s any real sense of “fun” to them. They’re all “art,” no play.
    Maybe that’s just the criteria that I use for my own collection… who knows. I’m just sick of these uninspired sculpts.

    These hyper detailed sculpts being made in sofubi have always looked like bastardized versions of McFarlane Toys. I’ve probably said that here, like, three times now. I can’t get past the idea that the medium simply isn’t made for or catered to this type of…shenanigans.

    No ideas of your own for a character? No problem! ... just use any famous creation from the movies. Then give it moobs, and a weird belly button. Remember: 'The cold moon turns into five dragons, and the flying fish looks like Yujing. The rescript of prison mourns easy tooth'.

    So just buy the damn toy already.

    Hey, I really liked the Mimi Monster a lot when it first dropped! Mainly ‘cause he was rippin’ off Splurrt so badly, but it was still a fun two part toy to have. And he used to send me releases just so I’d shoot ‘em and out ‘em on! Splurrt’s and Paul Kaiju’s versions were easily my favorites.

    that’s pretty shitastic. I might say “it can only get better from here!”—but we know that’s just not true.

    This makes me upset. I absolutely love demonic dog things, but these are awful. The “realistic” paint, the countless human teeth, the belly-eyes, those creepy human feet… It’s all too much. That green one could have been a cool toy if not for all the unnecessary detail.
    And of course, fuck swastikas and the people who think that shit is okay.

    Big favorite for me this one.

    i can totally see myself looking at this toy everyday reflecting at what humans can spend their time on. So ugly it transport me in a state of meditation… that’s a new category of ugly I didn’t know was possible.

    It’s like someone took an iluilu puppet finger or a PK one and said: “how do we make this crap?”

    Oh wait, it’s the ripoff takemi vibes that really make it look uninspired

    I think the greater crime being committed here is $85 for two static 3 3/4"-scale action figures. You could get this instead and still have money left over for a Mexican Pizza at Taco Bell.

    Imagine if this was a legitimate product, what would those licensing negotiations be like?

    Missed a trick with this one.

    Dolls with pull string voice boxes and ‘battle-slap’ spring loaded hand action would have been a much better shout…

    Wow, these 'toys' are about as creative as those user handles.
