We have covered several of the toys Gary Ham will be bringing to San Diego Comic Con next week (click here and here for a refresher) but one we haven't heard much about is Gary's sofubi Wooper Looper, which was sculpted by Chauskoskis and first seen as a prototype at last year's con. Well, be at ease, dear readers, because we now have pictures and release information to share with you! But first, let us take a moment for a poem describing our new friend:
It’s been said that I look like a lizard,
I’ve even been called a newt!
I’m neither or either, I’m my very own creature,
I’m a Wooper Looper! Woop Woop!
I have toes and I swim, I regenerate limbs,
I think the gills on my head are quite foxy,
Sadly, some people like to eat me,
They fry me and pair with Sake.
I’ve traveled by air, by sea, and by land,
I’ll be yours, your new little chum,
This outcome you’ll see, as happy as can be,
Brought to you by Chauskoskis and Ham.
Wasn't that clever? I thought so, too. If you want to get your hands on the sofubi Wooper Looper, he will be available first at SDCC at Gary's booth (#4836). A special "unpainted" pink colorway will be available for the con as well (sadly, there aren't any photos of this one). Each 5 and a quarter inch tall figure comes packaged in clear bag with header card featuring wood blocked art. Prices are still being hammered out but expect them to be in the US$45 to US$65 range.
