Ever wondered how sofubi is made? Here's a peek

Jun 10 // Brian Szabelski    @brianszabelski

Ever wonder how sofubi figures are made in Japan? Andy from Kaiju Korner is giving us a little peek inside a Japanese sofubi workshop to show you that it's not as easy or simple as you might think. In the above video, you can see Itokin Park Lucha Bears being made by hand. It's an interesting look at just what goes into some of our favorite figures, and it really helps me to respect those who make their own stuff that much more.

Check out Kaiju Korner for more on the video as well as for other kaiju and sofubi news, including one showing the process of wax mold making that makes a good companion video to this one!
